There’s something strange going on with two people who entered the YouTube industry from the entertainment industry. The number of views on former “Ameagari Kesshitai” member Hiroyuki Miyasako’s YouTube channel “Miyasako Desu! The number of views on his YouTube channel “Miyasako Desu!
The first video to exceed one million views was “[Urgent Video] I have something to tell you about Cow Miyagi” on October 1, and since then, most of the videos have had between 100,000 and 300,000 views. In the past, he has been a member of the “V6” team, and he has been a member of the “V6” team for many years. Soccer Showdown! which was released on October 16, had 85,000 views, less than 100,000 views (as of November 9).
Miyasako is also known to have the full support of Hikaru, a very popular YouTube star. Hikaru’s averages are consistently around 1 million views, and Miyasako seems to be the only one who is suffering.
“The number of subscribers to his channel is also decreasing, from 1.43 million in August to 1.41 million as of November. The number is still impressive, but there is no doubt that it is going down.
On the 26th of last month, a struggling Miyasako said, “I’m Miyasako! On the 26th of last month, a struggling Miyasako released a video in which he offered to give away one million yen if you could perfectly recreate the pose. On the Internet.
I can’t believe I messed with that.
It’s the kind of thing a failing artist would do.
I’m not sure what to say. As for the reason for Miyasako’s “struggles”, the aforementioned sports journalist said
“I’m not sure what to make of it. There were fans of the duo, too. The breakup of Ameagari Ketteitai was a big deal. Also, Miyasako is no longer featured on the Internet news. It was one of the ways to get people talking about him on the Internet news. I think it was a good idea. It’s a big thing that we are losing an important promotional tool.
He pointed out.
Another person who has been struggling is Yuya Tegoshi, who left the Johnny’s office in June last year.
His dance video “Yuya Tegoshi/LUV ME, LUV ME,” uploaded on September 22, was the last one to exceed one million views on his YouTube channel. Since then, there have been many videos with single digit views.
The video “Yuya Tegoshi Emergency Press Conference” uploaded in June last year set a Japanese record with 1.32 million simultaneous users. The number of registered users increased at once, reaching a peak of 1.7 million, but after August last year, the number of registered users leveled off, and from May this year, the number of registered users finally started to decrease, and as of November, the number of registered users is 1.58 million.
“The number of views per month is also less than one-sixth of its peak. The sluggish growth in the number of subscribers and views is often the result of “flames,” but Mr. Tegoshi has not caused any trouble.
The only thing I can think of is that he made his debut as a YouTuber with too much fanfare. He may be suffering from the repercussions of that.
On the other hand, her videos that make use of her singing ability and visuals are still popular. According to a person who knows Tekashi
“On the other hand, his videos utilizing his singing ability and visuals are still popular.
He has his own ideas. What Miyasako and Tegoshi have in common is that they both came from the world of television. Both Miyasako and Tegoshi have one thing in common: they both came from the television industry, which makes it difficult for them to compete with the YouTube industry because their fan base is different from that of the industry.
“The successful ones are Egashira 2:50 and Yuta Kajiwara, aka “Kazi Sack. The former is a perfect match for YouTube. The latter has been slowly increasing the number of registered users through repeated trial and error.
The type of people like Miyasako and Tegoshi who come to the scene with a bang tend to struggle a year or two later.
A person from the YouTube agency mentioned above said.
They have always been popular and talented, but will they be able to break out of the “wasteland crisis” with new ideas and ingenuity?
