Twitch Streamer Shoutout: An Ode to lunriilu

As a short precursor, my past experience with this particular streamer came when they were streaming under a different name. Shortly before Autumn this year, she decided to completely revamp her entire channel to become a Vtuber, deleting all of her past clips, broadcasts, and anything else that may reveal her physical appearance. Going forward, I will detail my experiences primarily with their prior identity, but note that such is no longer the case, at least in appearance.

Earlier in the year, I played quite a bit of Kirby and the Forgotten Land. I quite liked the game, considering it among my favorites, if not the favorite of mine from the franchise. As such, I lingered within the game category on Twitch, finding anyone that could provide some fun background noise with it. I ended up finding that and quite a bit more.

Introducing (now known as) lunriilu. (← Link to her Twitch channel.)

A booming presence, specifically with the attention she provides to her carnal comforts: gorgeous 2D boys. Though I initially discovered her through Kirby, her interests tend to be a little more… “cheeky.” Not afraid to get “horny on main” nor does she shy away from the sexiest options for characters in RPG games, it’s certainly a more open space on the platform. Probably doesn’t help that she can do a very good “Ara ara~” (and specific community members know it).

Jack-O-Lanterns? Halloween is over!

I don’t recall if this was ever explicitly stated, but many of the streamers I end up following are due to the fondness I have of the game they played through when I first find them. There’s a sort of mutual benefit between streamer and game that, since the latter automatically works, if the former manages to captivate me or at least stay level in entertainment, I’m more willing to stay around. This has been the case for quite a few that have come before—my most cherished memory was seeing them play through “that first game.”

lunriilu was a bit different. Seeing her blast through Forgotten Land was an amusing ride, only it didn’t totally solidify me as a frequent visitor. That, in fact, came with what came shortly afterwards: Bug Fables. It was up next in her streaming game queue and I, having had it in my Steam library for a while by that point, decided to play it right then and there. As a joke, you see.

In reality, it was a game I did not want spoiled for me. Yet I also wanted to attend more streams! What was a fool to do but brute-force their head into the wall at full speed? So I played quite a bit, making sure to always be a fair bit ahead of her, then ended up being a subtle guide as she played through the game herself (even if she didn’t need help often). For those who have read these shout-out posts before, they know how much more enjoyable a stream is for me when I can aid people.

Some pleasant mouth sounds might have proceeded this image.

Eventually, I beat the game myself. (Highly recommended, by the way.) lunriilu took her time with the game, doing whatever she possibly could to get all content out of it. And I was there to see her do a large majority of it. There were times where I would stay up to 1-2 a.m. just watching her play through the game, fighting off drowsiness. (It doesn’t help that she’s two hours behind me.) Adhering to that level of commitment is something that is infinitely intoxicating.

This would not be the case if the streamer was anything short of underwhelming. “Lu” has always been considerably kind to me since inhabiting her community. Her conduct, outside of thirsting over some very fine husbandos, tends to be fairly professional… well, perhaps this feels contradictory, but she is both calm and chaotic at the same time. Almost as though she is in camouflage normally, waiting to strike when the opportunity is right.

She struck with her brain here.

That sort of flexibility makes each stream somewhat unique, particularly if she’s playing something that the community can howl at (and they do). I fondly recall the Dragon Quest XI streams and how a specific female character was allowed a bunny-girl outfit. It got a lot of mileage out of both streamer and her audience. Yet when the rambunctiousness dies, the entertainment keeps steady. Through fun commentary and vocal exaggeration, the stream has multiple moments of fun.

To this point, I may have painted an image of streams riddled in sexual debauchery. While this is true to some extent, they’re actually more chill than anything. That professionalism I alluded to previously speaks to that, with Lu always in (mostly) total control of the mood of the stream. She plays up frenzy for fun, but it’s generally a smooth operation. Her experience (she’s been streaming for years) and temperament exhibit knowledge of the platform and how to operate it.

As for game choices, she’s open to many things. From my experience, she’s been fairly fond of JRPGs, dating sims, and colorful chaos. Though I’ve followed her since April, her playthroughs of Bug Fables and Dragon Quest XI combined have taken up a substantial portion of that time. She likes her long games.

Look at all of those nerdy interests.

Recently debuting as an undine Vtuber, there likely won’t be too much different from her general vibe. She’ll just go by Lu instead of Phoenix and have a far different appearance. She made her official debut just last week, so there’s no better time to dive in. With the assumption that the short hiatus didn’t completely re-wire her personality and brain waves, there’s great worth to attending. Unfortunately for me, she streams a little too late for my current sleep schedule. Go in my stead!

If any of this has made you interested, I would highly encourage checking out lunriilu on Twitch. To catch up with her outside of Twitch, you can find her on Twitter.
