Nema Ui’s New Single “Umi Watari”

When the single was first announced on Nema Ui’s Twitter, it was only available domestically 😿 and with a new tweet it’s now available to international fans too! 😻 Needless to day, it’s on 🔂 all-day for me and hopefully they’ll embed lyrics for it on Apple Music so we can singalong.

If you’re into cute culture you’ll definitely want to check out the Okinawa VTuber Nema Ui. If you’re not familiar with what a VTuber (Virtual YouTuber) is, here’s an English example from Wikipedia:

… an online entertainer who uses a virtual avatar generated using computer graphics. A growing trend that originated in Japan in the mid-2010s, a majority of VTubers are Japanese-speaking YouTubers or live streamers who use anime-inspired avatar designs.
