Introduction Video

Official Bio

"A circus performer who joined hololive in hopes of becoming the ringmaster of the VTuber world. She enjoys wowing audiences with acrobatics, and lives by the words, "When the going gets tough, the tough get going." If you ask her, her occasional mess ups are also part of her charm."

Overview

Omaru Polka (尾丸ポルカ) is a member of the 5th generation of Hololive talents, and debuted on August 16, 2020. She is a quarter-part fennec circus-less ring mistress who decided to turn Hololive into her circus.

She streams talk streams, singing/karaoke streams and sometimes game streams, even if by her own admission she is not very good at them. She tried keeping a stream schedule at first, but eventually gave up: dubbing herself a "guerrilla queen", she now schedules her own streams from anywhere between 15 minutes to 2 hours in advance with next to no prior warning, and at unpredictable times ranging from early in the morning to very late at night.

Because of her circus theming, Polka's representative mark is a circus tent (🎪). A bell (🔔) is also associated with Polka by her fans because of her prolific use of it in streams.

Personality

Polka is highly energetic, and often speaks faster than even native Japanese viewers are capable of understanding. Her emotions fluctuate wildly: one moment she is extremely loud and energetic, and the next she is quiet and subdued.

Polka's streams are chaotic: she talks fast and loose, jumping quickly to and from a variety of topics. Even if she has a list of talking points, she quickly veers into related tangents, only returning to the original topic after a long time. Her unpredictability extends to how she plays games; this is more noticeable in open world games, like Minecraft and ARK, where she plays with a plan in mind which eventually gets abandoned in favor of doing something else entirely that catches her attention on the spot. Her in-game projects are often stalled by these distractions despite her intention to work hard on them, though when she does complete one it is after numerous adventurous detours.

By her own account, Polka is easily affected by the weather, in particular atmospheric pressure. If she decides to stream on a day with low pressure, she almost always starts with less energy than usual; eventually she perks back up as she has fun doing whatever activity she is streaming. On more than one occasion she has streamed 2+ hours of karaoke early in the morning simply because she had a headache and thought to get rid of it by singing.

Like Marine, Polka is knowledgeable about 90s and 2000s anime and otaku culture, and is touchy about her age.

Streaming Information

Stream Rules

For the main page, see Stream Rules.

Polka has the following streaming rules in her streams' descriptions[13]:

🎪前説

  • 公演前の待機所では喋りすぎないように!(※内輪ノリにならないようにね、みんなのマナーでここは変わります)
  • 公演中は関係ない話題を話しすぎず!
  • 話題に出ていない人の話はしないように!
  • 座員の皆は、他の配信者さんのところでポルカの話題を持ち込まないように!
  • ポルカの配信の雰囲気はここだけで楽しんで
  • 過度なネタバレ気をつけて!空気読みがんばろう
  • だからといって、守れていない人をやんややんや言わずに!仲良くしてくれるのが一番!
  • つよい言葉や意味のない連投、ポルカの意図していないコメントはやめてください。見つけても触れずにスルー、ブロック。答えは沈黙。

🎪Introduction

  • Please do not have conversations in the pre-stream chat! (※ Don't have private conversations, they change the atmosphere)
  • Please do not talk too much about unrelated topics during the stream!
  • Please do not talk about other vtubers unless I bring them up!
  • Likewise, please do not bring me up in other streams!
  • The atmosphere of Polka's stream should be enjoyed in here only.
  • Please be careful about excessive spoilers. Please be considerate of others and go with the flow (of the stream).
  • Please don't be overzealous about enforcing the rules. Getting along with others is the number one priority!
  • Please refrain from getting into arguments in chat; that is not what Polka wishes for in a stream. If you see something you don't agree with, blocking the sender is an option. The best response is to not engage.

Fans

Zain mascot character

Polka's fans are collectively called "Omaru-za" (おまる座, "The Omaru Troupe"). Individual fans are called "Zain" (座員, "Troupe members"), and are represented by a small fennec-like mascot from a fan-made (Ultimately adopted and made official by Polka herself) Zain dress-up maker[14].

Trivia

  • Her favorite color is red.
  • She is a fan of music idols. Her karaoke repertoire includes songs from many idol groups like Morning Musume or Momoiro Clover Z; Polka is a big fan of the latter in particular.
  • Has a notoriously poor sense of direction in games. Coupled with her curious and unpredictable nature, her gaming streams are equal parts getting lost and getting back again.
  • Polka and her chat tend to use the syllable POL (ぽる) and substitute/add it in other words. Some examples include:
    • OHAPOL: Polka's "Good morning" greeting in Twitter.
    • HIRUPOL: Another greeting, when her first Twitter post of the day occurs around noon.
    • OYAPOL: Good night greeting, said by Polka on Twitter when she goes to sleep.
    • POLMAO[15]: A portmanteau of POL and LMAO.
    • POLTATO PC[16]: Used to describe the old computer Polka was using when she started streaming.
  • One of her streaming quirks is the ending fade-out: as her stream ending sequence plays, she frequently keeps talking over it, her voice volume fading out gradually.
  • Even if she cannot speak English, Polka frequently tries to engage with her foreign fans:
    • At the start of most streams, after her greeting in Japanese, she always greets everyone in the world in English: "Good morning, good evening, good afternoon!"
    • She has played Among Us, in English, with fans around the world[17].
  • Owns the following instruments:
    • Maracas, Güiro, Duck sound maker, Big duck sound maker, Castanets, Mini horn (bike horn), Otamatone, Cajon, Cajon shaped maracas, Vibraslap, Triangle, Various whistles, Chimes, Cowbell, Mokugyo ,Duck whistle, Crow whistle, Baby rattle, Ceremonial bells, Snare drum, Tambourine, Agogo bell, Flexatone, Shinobue flute, Kalimba, Harmonica, Hand bell, Ukulele, MIDI trigger pad, Glockenspiel[18]
    • For her 2020 Birthday, she received: Tamayurarin Buddhist Bell, Pachi Pachi Clappy, Red-Blue Clapper/Hand Rattle, Kazoo, Alto Recorder, Street Drum, Vuvuzela, Tongue Drum, Accordion[19]
  • Since early 2021, she started frequently incorporating the kazoo into her streams. She'll start playing it in the middle of a game[20], during collabs[21], and even as a solo in the middle of a karaoke song[22]. She has also released a kazoo cover of her first original song, HOLOGRAM CIRCUS.
