My Childhood Best Friend is a VTuber! (OsananaV)

Akira is a self-proclaimed hikikomori that's obsessed with popular culture and one virtual content creator in particular - Mayu Hoshinoka. It is only when her stream is offline and he gets forced into a lunch date with his childhood best friend, Koiyomi, does he realise that maybe there is more to this VTuber than he could have ever expected.

Scratch that, maybe there is more to his childhood best friend than he could have ever anticipated.

A quippy new romantic comedy of misunderstanding, virtual idols and sadomasochism from the author of "Blood? Suckers!"
