About Ami Yamato

While there are many vloggers out there in the world, there isn’t quite anyone like Ami Yamato. Vlogging from the unique perspective of a 3D animated character, who seems unaware of the fact that she’s an animation, Ami inserts her avatar into everything from the real world, to on camera Q&A’s and even into a scene in Star Wars. 2018 saw a ton of virtual YouTubers, known as VTubers, breaking into the mainstream and finding large audiences, something Ami has been doing for over seven years. With a subscriber count of 135K+ that is rapidly growing, 2019 is sure to be a big year for the animated breakout star.
