Ryushen is presented as a young adult. In fact, they debuted as an 18-year-old high school senior.

In addition to making music, Ryushen joined social media with the aim of making friends. Their live streams have become a proper platform upon which they connect with a broad audience.

In addition to connecting with their fans, they have also succeeded at collaborating with other VTubers. In fact, they are part of several musical groups; some that have been signed to well established labels.

The most popular musical group that Ryushen is part of is Rain Drops. It is a six-member group that debuted in 2020.

For Ryushen VTuber, part of their signature look is their long teal blue hair. They often wear it into a braid that reaches their bosom and ties it at the end with a scrunchie. On the front, they have bangs styled to cover most of their forehead. The hair style is complete with a ‘fly away’ piece of hair stylishly hanging from the top of their head. Seeing that there is no official Ryushen face reveal yet, it is unclear if the avatar’s appearance is comparable to the content creator in real life.

Besides their unique hair, their big purple  and yellow eyes, long chin, thinly shaped eyebrows, and multiple pierced ears define their long face. They often accessorize their outfits with gold and red- tassel earrings on their left ear.

In terms of outfits, they tend to express their gender fluidity through what they wear. In one instance, they are in an outfit with a traditional Chinese style, in the next they are casually rocking a shirt and a tie.

It is also evident that the panda is their favorite animal. In fact, they are often seen holding a stuffed panda next to their chest. Perhaps Ryushen irl is also a big fan of the animal.

The essence of VTubing is posting content on various social media platforms, especially video streaming sites like YouTube, anonymously. The content creator hides behind an avatar. It is an effective way of building a totally different character and feeding humans’ fantasy of a world where humans and non-humans coexist.

However, for the likes of Ryushen VTuber, the thought process is different. Granted, a Ryushen face reveal may occur along the way, whether intentionally or through a leaked picture(s).
