The popular character has 1.4 million Youtube subscribers thanks to her entertaining Let’s Play videos and sarcastic humor. Ai’s success has kickstarted a trend of virtual Youtubers within the Japanese community.

Ai’s variety show will be titled Kizuna Ai no BEAT Scramble and it will premiere on April 6 on BSNii Tele. The show will feature Ai introducing the latest trends in music, gaming, anime, and online culture.

A show’s producer spoke to Animate Times and said that they were impressed in Ai’s talent. Originally, they were going to produce a web show, but opted out of it due to limitations, such as locking it behind a paywall.

Kizuna Ai no BEAT Scramble will be the first TV variety show to have a virtual host. Since the series won’t be live, there are no worries about a glitch revealing Ai’s true identity, like what happened to NoraCat.
