Day 2 of AFA Night Live on November 27 lists Riot Music's Yuka Nagase and Virtual Cinderella Project's NHOT BOT.
Yuka Nagase from Riot Music
Yuka is introduced as "young musician, wrapped in a mysterious aura with a youthful touch to her singing." The release of her album "A Look Front" released this year makes her the first in the whole Riot Music roster to have her own solo album. She became a member of Riot Music in September 2020.
NHOT BOT from Virtual Cinderella Project
The six-member NHOT BOT virtual idol unit from the Sony- and Bilibili- backed Virtual Cinderella Project is composed of three Japanese VTubers who are popular in China—Kagura Mea, Hanazono Serena, and Hiseki Erio—along with three new members selected through auditions—Amane Luna, UsuMe and Seira Mint.
Former HKT48, AKB48 and STU48 idol Rino Sashihara serves as the group's lyricist and creative director.
