AR Character Diorama: “Expression of Future Characters

Instructor Kotoge (Bi-Kingu, Eiji Kotoge)
Instructor Kotoge (Eiji Kotoge), aka “Demon Instructor” of Garibenger V, teaches VTubers to become full-fledged Garibengers. His witty comments to VTubers at the beginning of the program such as “Don’t mess with me, you 3D guys”, “I’ll spray you with water”, and “I’ll cut the wiring somewhere” are very popular. He was appointed as a special advisor to the Galibenger V Development Department by the Galibenger V Headquarters and joined mode:GUARDIAN project without knowing what was going on. Garibenger’s people! In your hands, you have the hope of the future! I don’t know,” says the instructor.
)Buiko (AD mode)
Garibenger V has combined all the power of late-night television with the power of “industry firsts! The Thunderbolt Type VTuber”. To put it super crudely, Thunderbolt In makes it easy for anyone to get in! It was supposed to be a decisive weapon robot defending the earth, but it usually works on program staff duties as an AD mode with an AD program installed. The instructor doesn’t know much about it, as he goes into “Kotoge Mode” when he joins, or into “Battle Mode” when he is attacked by an evil minion. The mode:GUARDIAN from the future looks like Bui-ko, but what is the truth?
