If we accept the rhetoric that Gura is popular because of her own hard work and talent, we also have to accept the fact that others are less popular because they didn't work hard enough, and they aren't as talented.
So did Gura actually earn her success? Is every other vtuber less talented than her? Or did she just get lucky?

The options you've laid out are a false dichotomy. A person can believe that working hard is a necessary condition for Gura's popularity but not a sufficient one. Put differently, no one will become that popular without hard work, but someone CAN work as hard as Gura without enjoying her success if they lack the same personal qualities that make her entertaining or run into worse luck. This is pretty common in a lot of fields, people at the absolute peak of their craft have to work hard, display innate talent, AND get lucky in order to make it to the top.

Technical skill is only one part. As much as people harp on about what they call >nepotism, networking *is* a skill that gets you far. And... yes, luck has a lot to do with it, particularly the the luck of other people noticing you.

If it was luck that factored into Gura's success, then why hasn't anyone else gotten as lucky as her? This logic stinks.

>> No.11497544

Combination of hard work, circumstances and sheer fucking luck. Like anything in life, nothing is black and white. Some people will work a fuckton harder and never get close to her success, some will do less and get more successful than her, some will be born in an environment that molds them to be naturally entertaining for a lot of people (see pretty much any big Twitch streamers, they're absolute lazy retards and they mog all of the Holos despite the holos "working" harder with lessons)

>> No.11497758

Learn to read please? I explicitly said that while luck was PART of the equation, luck ALONE isn't enough to make someone Gura 2.0. You need the right personal qualities like a good voice to be a strong streamer, the right work ethic to hone your craft, and then the right luck to be picked up by a big agency (most likely Hololive) so you don't spend years streaming in obscurity.
If you want my honest answer, "getting as lucky as Gura" is basically impossible now, because part of the perfect storm that made her so successful was coming along right at the height of the pandemic vtubing boom. So even if you checked the other two boxes, you're never going to debut in as good a situation.

>If we accept the rhetoric that Gura is popular because of her own hard work and talent
Yes. I'm not claiming she's the hardest working or the most talented, just that she didn't sit on her laurels and do fuck all.
>we also have to accept the fact that others are less popular because they didn't work hard enough, and they aren't as talented.
No. The world isn't just or fair. Just because Gura got there by her talents doesn't mean that far more talented vtubers weren't given the fair shake or didn't get screwed over in some way..

Cunny is both a buff and a debuff. Arguably, Gura should have flopped HARD when that one Youtuber chick made some noise about Cover pandering to pedos. The fact that she didn't and also made people stay is a testament to her quality as an entertainer.

Compare this to another (albeit smaller) Vtuber, Kyutto, who is almost non existent nowadays because of the stink raised at her
