Rorochan was a girl in Japan who did live broadcasts on the ‘Niconico’ page, which was mainly used to do live broadcasts on topics like Vocaloid.
Roro’s broadcasts varied in themes, from playing the piano to singing or chatting with those who saw her live performances. Roro was a very shy girl, and she didn’t have many friends, to the point where, on a school trip, she sat in the bathroom all day in order not to socialize with her peers.
Her mental health also declined rapidly when her parents separated, who argued a lot and made Roro worry even more about them.
The theme of her live shows quickly took a dark turn, from broadcasting simply crying to filming herself with her feet on the train tracks. A frequently mentioned theme in her broadcasts was that she wanted to be a legend, even if it meant dying.
On the day of her death she was in her room, talking about being a legend again, until she looked out her window and asked the chat if she should jump. Two camps quickly formed, one of them inciting him to do so, the other insisting on avoiding it.
This latest broadcast is not available on her profile of Niconico, since it is suspended, but clips of her other live shows are on a YouTube account under the same name, although she confirmed that said account did not belong to her.
The suicide scene is available in many places on the Internet in GIF format, although the audio version is very difficult to find, although many people, such as Reddit users, have confirmed that their last words were about how much she regretted doing so.
Her declining mental health is also visible in her posts on Twitter, which is still active, and contains posts such as ‘I am bullied’ or ‘I’m sorry for everything’.
Information about the case is also available in the lyrics of the song ‘Roro’s suicide show on a Livestream’, by the band Shinsei Kamattechan, whose lyrics translated into Spanish contain messages such as ‘Jumping from the Chūō line’, which was where she was recorded with his feet half dangling, and also where three girls jumped on the day of her death. Another line from the song is “There is no point in calling the FBI,” referring to the fact that the Japanese FBI tried to hide as much evidence as possible, although they could not prevent the case from making the news.
Two other references in the song are ‘The bluetooth of this city is destroying me completely’ and ‘I’m a witch who talks to cats’, in reference to how she called her fans and those who saw her live broadcasts, and as they were the cause of her death.
Many people on the internet have said that it is possible that she had the syndrome of the “walking corpse”, due to the train lines and the fact that her profile picture on Twitter is an anime character who dies from a car crash.
That is all the information available on the case.
Many people also opened wikis or posts about her, yet quickly began posting negative things against her. Most, if not all of them, have already been taken down. Twitter user @HatsuneMikuArmy is also doing investigation on the case and has helped write a part of this one, so thanks to them.
Her Twitter account is still up, however not active, but her NicoNico and FC2 accounts have been taken down. There is an active subreddit under the name of r/rorochan_1999 that investigates her case and has discussions about her and/or her life.
