A sample of a cover song by Akie
"Shinpakusuu ♯0822", composed by ChouchouP

Akie (Chinese:秋绘 [Qiū Huì], Japanese:秋絵) is a Chinese utaite who mainly posts music covers on Bilibili and YouTube.

She is best known to sing with a soft, breathy falsetto. This enables her to perform well in songs which require clear high-pitch notes, such as in “Yakusoku”. However, she has also sung in her original voice since mid-late 2020, as in “Koiwazurai”.

Akie posted her first music cover on the Chinese video sharing website on 25th July 2016. However, her official debut is considered to be on 12th September 2016, in which she covered “Letter Song” and self-funded the production of the music video.

Akie joined YouTube on 10th September 2017. Since then, she has become one of the most subscribed Chinese utaite on the international platform, reaching the Silver Play Button milestone on 8th May 2021[2]. As of July 2022, she has amassed a total subscriber count of 140k. Her most popular song in YouTube, “Ama no Jaku”, has currently accumulated a total of 23.3 million views.

On her 22nd Birthday (26th January 2021), Akie debuted as a Virtual Uploader on Bilibili[3]. She decided to use a virtual avatar because she wanted to interact more with her fans, and to show her emotions as she streams[4]. Clips and recordings of her live broadcasts are uploaded on her fan channels in Bilibili and YouTube under her consent. A second avatar was revealed on her 23rd birthday on Bilibili[5], and on the subsequent day on YouTube[6].

Trivia[]

  • Akie was born in Shenzhen, Guangdong.
  • Akie graduated in Imperial College, London. She majored in Biology[8].
    • Akie loves cute animals, but she prefers wildlife over domesticated ones. She also enjoys watching documentaries about nature[9].
    • However, because she wanted to apply her knowledge directly into helping the society, Akie transferred into International Health Management during her Masters degree, which is supposedly a discipline in business. This decision was also partially influenced by the COVID-19 crisis[10].
  • Akie's favorite utaite is Kano. Her favorite anime are Gintama and Sora yori mo Tooi Basho[4].
  • Akie's favorite dessert is vanilla ice cream. She prefers Pepsi over Coke[4].
  • Akie is very multilingual. She speaks fluent Chinese, English and Japanese. She is also learning Korean and she understands some vocabulary in Russian[11].
    • However, although born in Guangdong, Akie isn't very good at speaking Cantonese.
  • The origin of the name Akie is rather convoluted. Originally, a Chinese name was created using Akie's birthday in a random name generator. The name was then translated literally into Japanese, in which the name "Akie" appeared as the final three characters of the string [12][13].
  • Due to Akie's inborn health circumstances, she is prone to contract respiratory diseases such as pharyngitis and rhinitis. This sometimes causes her to go on short breaks[12].
  • The following is an excerpt of the background story behind Akie’s virtual avatar[14]:"From a faraway planet named Huìxīng, I was travelling among the galaxies by Spaceship 870691 before I arrived at Earth, which was, well, when I found out that I've used up all of my fuel and was unable to leave. Since then, I've met a nice human girl, Qiū Qiūrén, who agreed to have me possess her body in order to build friendships with animals and mankind, generating my spaceship fuel by using the power of love..."
    • 870691 is the serial number of Akie's streaming space in Bilibili.
    • Huìxīng (Chinese: 绘星, Japanese: 絵星 [Esei]) is also the name given to Akie's fans[4].
    • Akie uses a virtual avatar which often features an addition of fox or red panda ears and tail. She is very conscious about the fact that the red panda features are not that of a raccoon[4][15].
    • Akie's second avatar represents a more mature form of herself, and she was evidently delighted when fans described it as an angel. Akie also has a Chibi avatar which she received as a surprise birthday gift from one of her Chinese fans[6].
