Pococha, live streaming service, review: Don’t get involved with weird live streamers.

pococha live streaming service in Japan

Pococha is a video live streaming service that is popular in Japan.

I’ve been using pococha for about a year now. I’ve come across many things in the past year, but as a listener, I’d like to take this opportunity to say something.

The point comment (,)
Pococacha is basically a tool for communication, as the official announcement says, so pointing commenting is prohibited. However, I think it’s a good idea to control bots, but some of our streamers say it’s OK to use dot comments because they want people to take the box freely.

I’ve heard that some streamers don’t need to say hello at the beginning or after you get a box, but if the management thinks you’re a bot, they might suspend or terminate your account.
As a listener, I think it’s minimum manners to say hello at the beginning and the end, and to type at least a Kirakome-like message to get a box. kirakome ☆

In the past, there were some steamers who didn’t talk at all and just broadcasted themselves sleeping, but now those streamers have been eradicated. I used to think that no matter how much I wanted to get a box, it was just weird when the other streamers didn’t say anything and didn’t react in any way, but as it turns out, there are no such streamers anymore.

On the other hand, there are also those who ban kirakome☆. This is the most disgusting type. Be careful of those who add “sama” to their name. These people are the ones who explicitly ask you to give them coins, so I wouldn’t want to get close to them.

I like the streamers who can take boxes freely, and who don’t ask for any coins at all with their greetings and kirakomes, because they don’t want to be mistaken for a bot. At first, I’m just here for the box, but often I want to throw coins to support them. Such streamers are in the A and S zones and can afford it. Once the crowd has gathered, there is no need to give back and the fans will throw a lot of coins. If streamers one of them, you can get a box without worrying about it. I’d like to introduce you to some of them, but I don’t have their permission, so I’m not going to. I know about 5 of them, so you can enjoy the show without paying for it, although it may not be enough.

By the way, as a rule of thumb, if you throw 100 coins, you can get 1k in 3 days. A listener with 20K coins is probably spending 50,000-100,000 yen a month. I’d say that’s a lot of money. One of the listeners I know said that he spent 3 million yen in one year, which is not unusual in the world of pococha. I don’t know why people go to such lengths to support the game, but if it makes you feel better, it’s probably a small price to pay. They use the human mind to get people to pay for something in both real and unreal world.

I think Pococha is such an inconvenient network, because you can’t throw coins except for watching the live streamers, but I think it’s an application that makes good use of people’s feelings that they can enjoy both free and paid in a limited time, which is different from TV or YouTube.
By the way, there is one account per person.

If you have any comments or suggestions of your own, or if you have a favourite streamer, please let us know. It’s another beautiful day.

I’d like to throw it all together today for one who has had a string of “oyachikes” (tickets where streamer’s meter never goes down if they can’t deliver, streamers get two a week). Just the thought of it is enough to keep me alive as I imagine the look of amazement on the face of the streamer.
