A "Virtual Youtuber". A person that streams and/or uploads videos to YouTube using, mostly, an anime avatar following their movements in real time. These avatars may be in 2D or 3D models.

A vtuber is a virtual YouTuber who is typically animated on the screen and voiced by the content creator. Many Vtubers are anime characters.
He's kinda shy so he became a vtuber.

The reason I don't get any sleep, don't have any money, and don't have any social skills.
Most of the time an anime girl (or boy)
Many times from Hololive.
No mom, it IS a real person talking, they are called Vtubers.

Damn, I spent my life savings on these Vtubers and now I'm gonna die.

Someone who doesn't want to show their face on stream so they instead use an animated anime character that "talks" whenever they talk. It's a smart alternative rather than not showing their face at all (as it attracts more viewers).
User A: You should check out Insert streamer here, she has this totally cute anime character on-screen that talks whenever she talks! It's so cute!
User B: Oooo, sounds like you found a Vtuber!
User A: Vtuber? Didn't know they had a name.
