1. Best Anime Streamers Group: The Hololive English Generation 1

2. Most Popular Male Anime Streamer: CDawgVA

3. Nyanners: Extremely Popular Anime Vtuber
Nyanners started her career as an anime vocalist on YouTube. She was massively popular there as one of the most renowned anime cover artists on the platform.
But in 2020, she made her debut as an anime Vtuber. She got signed with the Vtuber talent agency VShojo and since has become massive as one of the biggest anime Vtubers on Twitch.
She currently has 383K followers on Twitch, with her YouTube going over 1.11 Million Subscribers at the time of writing.
4. Ironmouse: Veteran Anime Vtuber
The second VShojo anime Vtuber on this list, Ironmouse is one of the most popular anime Vtubers out there. Her gleaming personality has won her 424 K followers on Twitch, and 312 K subscribers on her YouTube anime channel.
Ironmouse is a veteran Vtuber, as she has been streaming on YouTube and Twitch since her debut in 2017. She is also known to collaborate with other big-time streamers like CDawgVA and more.
But to just call Ironmouse another massive streamer on Twitch is an understatement. The only reason she is ranked below Nyanners and CDawgVA is because of her low subscriber count on YouTube.
5. The Anime Man: Youtube Otaku Streamer
The Anime Man is one of the most popular Anime YouTubers ever. He has a massive 2.76 Million Subscriber count on YouTube and supports a staggering 268k followers on Twitch.
The Anime Man is one of the most popular personalities on this list. But the main reason why he is so low on this list is because Joey is not a regular streamer.
He may be popular, but he has streamed only a handful of times on Twitch, or any other platform to say the least. But his popularity is so hard to ignore that despite only having streamed so little, he makes it on this list just because of the sheer volume of viewership he can get through his streams.
