I simply dislike people who do face reveal of any vtubers without their consent, just for the sake of getting clout from it. It’s pathetic.— Saruei 💥 (@Saruei_) May 19, 2022

Following the post, many of her fans questioned what she had done wrong, to which Saruei responded that she had been posting similar content for almost a year, and the ban made her feel strange. She drew the exact game avatar she sees in video games, but the game is glorified, and her art was banned by Twitch, leaving Saruei and her fans clueless.
After a few days, her Twitch account was back, and she resumed her regular twitch activity. Later, she posted a poll with four options: First Anime, Last Anime, Best Anime, and Worst Anime. While fans have differing opinions on which anime is the best, a few options have received far too many votes. Some are startling, while others aren’t.
