Japanese analysis website VStats.jp has released its own record of the most-watched VTubers in 2022, with Nijisanji's Kuzuha, Hololive's Usada Pekora and VShojo's Ironmouse on the top of its results.
The result of the ranking is based on a combination of data from YouTube Live (gathered by VStats using the YouTube Data API) and Twitch statistics (from TwitchTracker.com).
Out of the top 25 channels listed by VStats:
- 18 are YouTube channels, and 7 are on Twitch.
- 9 are from Hololive, 7 VTuber channels are from Nijisanji, 5 are from Korean virtual idol group ISEGYE, and 2 are from Neo-Porte.
- Shylily is the only independent VTuber in the list.
- Nijisanji Japan's YouTube channel is the only one on the list that is not a VTuber personality.
A detailed explanation of how the data is gathered is available on VStats' blog post (in Japanese).
