Hololive to debut first English-speaking male VTuber group on July 22-23

Cover Corp has just recently announced that we’d finally be getting a male English-speaking Vtuber group from Hololive! We’ve already had male Vtuber groups in Hololive called Holostars that started back in 2019, but they were primarily for the Japanese audience. Now we finally get some dudes for Cover Corp’s worldwide audience. Check out their announcement tweet below:

The group is called HOLOSTARS English, which basically acts as a spinoff to the original Holostars from Japan. TEMPUS is the first generation of Vtubers under HOLOSTARS English, and they already have a YouTube video introducing the whole group, complete with deep lore.

The HOLOSTARS website describes TEMPUS as an adventurer’s guild. When describing the name, they say this: “The name symbolizes a turning point in the founding members’ lives, as they look to resist the status quo and seek to change the world as adventurers.”

Here are the four members of TEMPUS:

Regis Altare

Regis is the founder of TEMPUS, and is described as a childish but earnest and straightforward fellow. He is “the first-ever adventurer to set foot in Elysium” and has the attributes of a hero. He’ll be making his debut on his YouTube channel on July 22, 6:00 PM (PST) (July 23, 9AM, Manila time).

Magni Dezmond

Magni acts as TEMPUS’s publicist. He claims to be an alchemist, but no one knows if he actually is one; in fact, nobody knows his true profession. The site describes him as “The type of person who stares right into the abyss,” which I personally find hilarious. He’ll be debuting right after Altare, on his YouTube channel on July 22, 7PM (PST) (July 23, 10AM Manila time).

Axel Syrios

The third member of TEMPUS is Axel, who is the chief of human resources for the group. He’s a gladiator, a combat arena owner, and also considers himself a doctor. I’m guessing that he’s not an actual qualified doctor based on his words: “Doctors resolve the root cause of a problem, right? Well, I destroy it. So I am a doctor.” He’ll be debuting on his YouTube channel a day after Magni, on July 23, 6PM (PST) (July 24, 9AM Manila time).

Noir Vesper

The final debutant is TEMPUS’s academic adviser, Noir. I assume that he’s taken the role of the “smart guy” in the group, based on the fact that he “holds the posts of custodian and arch-scholar at the Grand Library.” He’s also described as logical and rational but doesn’t like the sunlight since he spends a lot of time indoors, absorbed in his research. It’s nice to be smart but touch some grass dude. He will debut on his YouTube channel on July 23, 7PM (PST) (July 24, 10AM Manila time).

After all their debuts, TEMPUS will have a collab stream with all of the four members in one place. It will take place on July 24, 12nn Manila time.

If you’re excitedly waiting for some TEMPUS streams, you can check out the member’s Twitter accounts to hype yourself up, as they have been pretty active on there for the past few days. Check out their socials below:
