- VShojo featured talents participating in Anime Expo Lite 2021 include:
- A demon queen who proclaims to be Satan. Friendly, fun loving demon who ran from her duties in hell to make new friends, learn new things, and live life to the fullest. She has an obsession with internet, music, lewd, nerdy and all things cute. She wears bells on her body to contain and control her power to better blend into the human world.
- A sentient AI from a cyber dystopian future with a deep interest in anime and internet subculture. An adorable airhead. Melody is often a clueless AI, which leads to adorable misunderstandings. Melody has an almost encyclopedic knowledge of doujin, anime subculture, and random facts. Loves making friends and sharing her knowledge.
- Ancient evil creature that exists as a pink-haired catgirl. Tries her best to be pure hearteed, dreams of becoming an idol and world domination.
- A cherry blossom/Japanese Wolf Spirit who loves to make new friends. She sees herself as a delicate blend between lewd, wholesome, and gamer. Energetic, affectionate, and optimistic. Laughter and cozy vibes is what she loves to spread, along with a childlike sense of wonderment.
- Half human/half red dragon rockstar. Very headstrong and tends to yell at everyone around her. Loves to make friends, meme, and prank. She has aspirations of ruling humanity but is too much of an airhead to accomplish it.
- A bittersweet Lich who spends her days in her underworld castle drawing art. She sees streaming as a method of harvesting human souls through Twitch subscriptions. She is a hopeless necromantic and expects that you will watch her for all eternity.

After the stream concludes on July 4th, ticketholders can re-watch the content, as well as access additional programming, on a VOD basis from July 5th -16th, 2021.
