Reason: Shirakami Fubuki mentioned Kiryu Coco in a tweet at 6th October, 2020
せや！タコパしに行かねばだ(^・ω・^§)ﾉ— 白上フブキ@8日までおやすみ🦊✌️ (@shirakamifubuki) October 6, 2020
Here is the English translation of the tweet. And first of all, twitter is illegal in China.
Oh yes! We still have to go for the takoyaki party. (^・ω・^§)ﾉ As a substitute for the penalty game have to treat them with a yummy takoyaki party.🦊🦊 When Kanata feels better, let's give her a surprise visit with a takoyaki plate. I also want to put Kaicho's tail on my cheek. 🦊🐉
And that’s it enought for Chinese antis. Chinese netizens are super angry about the tweet because by the time Fubuki tweeted about this, Kiryu Coco has not officially personally apologize for the the whole China Taiwan one country drama.
Comments from Chinese haters
All the Chinese twitter accounts started to commenting “goodbye”, “who support taiwan being a country”, “I will sit and wait hololive got kicked out from China”, “my youthful days are gone”， “unsubbed”
— 港獨台獨親媽骨灰拌飯🤗 (@19PF5tW1J7DpdDv) October 6, 2020 坐等hololive滚出中国笑（😘 — 響(*´﹃｀*)可愛いよ (@Victorique_D_B) October 7, 2020 我都忘了我最近不咋看holo了，正好提醒我了（就不发日语回复了，顺便推也取关得了w pic.twitter.com/epXLBll9Em — 響(*´﹃｀*)可愛いよ (@Victorique_D_B) October 7, 2020``` Other Taiwanese replied with sarcastic comments like "no one cares", "on sh!t cover is gonna bankrupt with one less sub" Of course there are many political and toxic comments from both side. Though there are some reasonable Chinese tweets ```兄弟们,冷静冷静，别在这做阅读理解,不至于 — creeper_LOL (@creeperLOL2) October 6, 2020``` "calm down brothers. stop doing comprehensions" (He meant don't over analyse about the tweet)"I came from china, I think this time fubuki's drama is a bit too much. Most Chinese people put the county about everything ... I don't talk about Coco's drama ... the main reason is official Chinese bilibili tranlation group ... I rather hololive leaving China so the girls can feel at ease." And yes. This tweet actually mentioned what we wanna talk about next session. ## Insider story ### Shirakami Fubuki Chinese Bilibili Official Translation Team and Nijisanji Official Translation Team There are a bunch of leaks appeared to the surface with the 24 hours of the tweet from insiders and spies within the Chinese Official Bilibili translation Groups. These translation groups used to be those pirate like groups that do Chinese translation clips on Bilibili like the English one you see on Youtube. They eventually draw the attention of Cover Corps because they have a well established community. It's easier to get into the Bilibili and Chinese market with their management and help. This is one of the reason why Hololive entered the Chinese market later than its competitor Nijisanji yet grew so much quicker and made a bank from it. And of course these created many unforeseen problems. (There are many stories about it for the past 2 years. See if we can get Wojtek_kun to write some long articles/ making some youtube videos about it in the future) The official Shirakami Fubuki is managed "directly" by the translation group. So technically it is official but not "official" official. These are the typical cases that pirated Chinese uploaders stealing contents from Youtube to Bilibili, or Bilibili to Youtube (they call it 搬运工, moving service), turned into legal services. This was how Bilibili started by copying Niconico and stealing contents outside the Great Chinese Firewall as Chinese cannot access to most of the internet services outside China nor people out would have a peek into Chinese services. Yes, Bilibili had no official genuine Anime before but kind of forcing Japanese companies complying with them. They use the "if you do not provide us the right of streaming your anime, you won't even get your cheap commission from us and we would still stream them anyway" tactics and many Japanese companies in the end didn't want to lose their IPs for nothing so they started to make relatively small cheap deals with them. Here are the two leaked pictures, one from Fubuki Bilibili Official Account management company and one from Nijisanji China Official management account. The Fubuki management company helps editing, cutting, translating raw videos into Chinese version for Bilibili uploads. It says:
我來自大陸，這次針對fbk炎上我真的覺得有些過分，大陸人普遍把國家放在最上層，故對可可的事我不置可否，但是這次fbk炎上，很大原因是官方字幕組行動有問題，激化矛盾，fbk只是很日常的互動甚至都沒有涉及到政治問題，僅僅因為日常互動就如此，那我更希望holo退出大陸，這樣這群女孩子才可以一直開心— SaltyEvan (@SaltyEvan1) October 7, 2020
To all shirakami fubuki translators, First of all thank you for all the new and old members contribute to raw videos and derivative work. As we all know, because of Hololive 4th Generation Kiryu Coco’s misbehaving, it gave hololive’s official Chinese bilibili management a devastating blow. 2020 Oct 6th 17:48 Shirakami Fubuki mentioned Kiryu Coco on twitter before Kiryu Coco apologizing and did not remove tweets after 24 hour. This is the direct cause for us will not be able to manage the official account @shirakamifubukiOfficial.
The current plan will be: This group officially stop any editing and translation works. If Kiryu Coco continue refusing to accept the territorial integrity of our country and Hololive members still continue to have any social activities with her as usual, this group will never go back on our translation works.
Current discussion: Should we delete all the drafts and does anyone want to continue on our works.
Deputy head - green leaf
If no one disagrees, then :
- Translation group will stop having any activities immediately officially
- All drafts will be deleted in the near future
- If there is anyone who really want to continue their works, please contact Cover CN yourselves.
This one is an announcement within Nijisanji China Management Account to its staff.
@everyone [About recent collab with Hololive] Because of the current special situation, Nijisanji & Hololive collab stream will be temporarily abandoned. Period: now ~ 18th October Depending on the actual conditions it is possible that the period will be extended. If it is going to be extended we will inform the translation team. Thank you for your support and understanding, translation team.
