About Welcome Kokuri-san
Welcome Kokuri-san is a visual novel starring the VTuber Kurune Kokuri. The story is fully voiced, and will include scenes with realistic ASMR voices, so you can enjoy the scenario “as if you were there.”
“Kokkuri-san, Kokkuri-san, please come see us.”
When you fearlessly chant the “Kokkuri-san” spell at school in the middle of the night, what appeared was a surprisingly cute little fox named Kurune Kokuri.
And so begins the investigation of the Seven Wonders of School by you and Kurune Kokuri…
What is ASMR?
ASMR stands for “Autonomous sensory meridian response” and refers to pleasant sounds that stimulate a person’s hearing senses. Since ASMR is commonly recorded with special equipment, it can make you feel as if the voices are next to you, allowing you to become more immersed in the story.
Who is Kurune Kokuri?
Kurune Kokuri is a VTuber who was inadvertently summoned through the Japanese Ouija Board “Kokkuri-san.” Surrounded by her favorite games and delicious food, she is happily enjoying her modern life.
She is active on YouTube, live streaming games and songs with a focus on slow and soothing ASMR!
