NIJISANJI VTuber Mika Melatika’s Friends Thought She Was OnlyFans: It can be challenging to describe your job when you’re a VTuber. Not only is streaming a cutting-edge industry for entertainment but how do you include the fact that you use an avatar rather than your face? What if you want to protect your privacy?
Many people struggle with this problem, especially agency VTubers. What they are permitted to say and display, even off-stream, can be spelled out in their contracts, as Mika Melatika of NIJISANJI did.
Therefore, Mika Melatika wanted to move the subject along as quickly as possible when she recently went to a party with friends and brought up her job: “Hey Mika, what are you doing now? questioned one of them. like, what are you up to these days?” I am bound by a contract, so I am unable to say anything. I will also not announce that I am streaming.
“I changed the subject by saying, “Oh, I’m just working, anyhow.” Sometimes that’s where things end, but not in Mika’s case. Instead, one person persisted in bringing up the subject since they had another idea in mind.
“One of my pals literally said, “Mika, you should be careful!” because they didn’t want to shift the subject. I questioned, “Why?” I shat myself when they remarked, “You know you may put rules in your description.”
“First off, does that suggest they are familiar with me? They read my rules, secondly? That person, who? They replied, “Rules so they don’t misuse it, you know, the things you make,” to my question, “What do you mean the rules in my description.”
“Oh my God, what do you mean?” I exclaimed. Now, are you telling me that in addition to the fact that you know, there is now controversy and turmoil surrounding me, someone has been misusing my content? I was in a panic because I wanted to know what was going on but didn’t want to confirm their suspicions. What if I prove that they were just talking out of their asses?
The friend’s allusion to OnlyFans became obvious as the conversation went on. Even though Mika made an effort to divert attention from what she was doing, the lack of confirmation and some rumor mill going on behind closed doors created some questions.
“Okay Mika, I’m just going to say this but I’m sure you know you’ve been doing this for a while, but sometimes when someone pays for a subscription, they don’t want to be the only ones seeing it, so they’re going to be showing pictures to other people, and then these other people aren’t going to pay for your subscriptions, and then you’re just going to be losing customers,” they said.
“We had a discussion about it, and yes, my friends have been legitimately convinced for the past six months that I have an OnlyFan. I questioned them, “What makes you think I’m sharing photos of my t*tties on OnlyFans? “
The finest part of the tale, however, might be how it came to be. It’s the standard parental slander. It appears that Mika’s roommate’s grandmother, in a roundabout way, learned about what she was doing and spread the word.
However, instead of identifying her as a VTuber, which she had no idea what it was, she merely called her a “night worker,” which further exaggerated the situation. ‘Mika has had this stable job for a year,’ they say to their grandparents, and this is quote-unquote,
‘like she’s literally going to start working at 8 PM, sometimes she starts working at 10 PM, sometimes she’s finished at 4 AM.’ Just follow me on this one. She would be observed by many individuals, who would then pay her for the things she did on the internet.
snapchat sent me a “do u remember what u were doing today, 5 years ago? 🤔” and i clicked to find a picture of me eating a tub of icecream in front of a 1 hour long meme compilation at 4 am and i guess i really do be the same..

Mika’s main concern right now is how far that information has been disseminated. Clearing the record will be difficult because she can’t just turn around and claim to be a VTuber. While she goes about making sure the air is clear, she has a foolproof plan in place: I’m not sure who knows right now. I had to say, “I don’t do OnlyFans by the way, I have things to do.”
