Kizuna AI Original Singeroid “#kzn”
“kizuna (#kzn)” is an AI that specializes in singing born from Kizuna AI’s voice. Kizuna AI went into indefinite hiatus to achieve further growth to further connect with everyone in the world. #kzn’s mission is to become a hub to connect creators with creators, creators with fans, and creators with technology while supporting Kizuna AI’s dream of “connecting with everyone.”
This virtual duo, HIMEHINA, is made up of two artists who are complete opposites yet have the most perfect chemistry to capture the hearts of an audience in a way that’s just unimaginable!
One of them is Hime Tanaka, who has a phenomenal level of energy and just “lets it all out,” reflecting her charged emotions with her high-pitched singing voice, making the crowd laugh and getting the spectators excited beyond belief.
The other is Hina Suzuki, a sweet little girl, who has a beautiful, gentle voice, that absolutely melts the hearts of an audience, never mind the fact that she can a bit “spacey” like someone who is in off her own little world, as this is actually an unlikely compliment to her beautiful personality.
These girls who comprise HIMEHINA not only dance the night away on stage, but also use their beautiful harmony to entertain with live broadcasting of video games on YouTube as well as other media.
They are the first-ever VTuber (Virtual YouTuber) duet to simultaneously take first and second place on the popular music download application, High-Reso in Asia. Their first album “Divine Flowers,” released in April 2020, took third place in Oricon (the Japanese music hit chart), all other competitors having been human singers. They consistently sell out their live performances, even to the extent of selling out one live, called “Aitai bokura,” held in Tokyo, 2022, within a single minute. They create such a strong connection between them and their fans with their emotionally expressive vocals and the beautiful lyrics which make up their songs that reflect their own unique worldview. They’re a hit in their home country of Japan and they’re going to be a hit on the international stage. It’s so exciting!
