Nijisanji (にじさんじ) is a online Japanese video sharing social networking service for iPhone X.[1][2] It is a group of mostly Live2D-only Virtual YouTubers who are also known as "Virtual Livers" (バーチャルライバー Bācharu Raibā) when posting on sites outside of YouTube, such as NicoNico Douga and Bilibili. The term Liver, coined by mixing Japanese and English, is a heteronym for calling Nijisanji's streamers.[1][2][3][4][5]

Managed by Ichikara Inc., the group started in Japan in early 2018 and has since expanded to other countries as an international project. As of May 2021, there are 103 active Japanese Nijisanji members, 39 active VirtuaReal members, 16 active NIJISANJI ID members and 17 active NIJISANJI KR members. There are also 5 VirtuaReal Star members and 22 VirtuaReal Link members who are independent VTubers, not considered part of Nijisanji and are only in a network partner system.
