We the Unicorns

Are you even ready for this?!

Are you a fan of YouTube challenges? Are you a fan of aimless vlogs featuring interesting people talking about their life and recent purchases? Are you a fan on YouTubers playing games and commentating over the top of them? If you said yes to any of the above, then good news because this anime character has a YouTube channel and it's positively stuffed with everything that makes YouTube amazing.

A.I Channel was set up a few months ago, and has already gained nearly 200,000 subscribers for its strange content and regular upload schedule. Whilst the creator is strangely anonymous and distanced from the channel, all we know is that A.I Kizauna was made using an animation software called Miku Miku Dance - and it's the same one that animates Hatsune Miku, the popstar hologram that's taking over Japan.

In the video below, you can watch the strange phenomenon of an anime character commentating on a video game in real time.

Kizauna went through some controversy recently after jokingly admitting that because she's a hologram she's technically naked all the time, leading to her YouTube channel being banned. Seriously.

As you can tell, her channel is now back to normal and stronger than ever with an average of 2,000 new subscribers everyday and over 4 million video views in the last 30 days alone!

Thankfully for English speaking viewers, closed captions are available so you can enjoy Kizauna's videos without complaining about the language barrier. So if this is the kinda content you're here for, or simply just want to stare in wonder at how someone was able to perfectly encapsulate a YouTube vlogger into an anime character, then A.I Channel is someone you're 100% gonna need to subscribe to. We know we already have!
