Lofi Girl formerly ChilledCow is a French YouTube channel and music label established in 2017. It streams low-fidelity hip-hop music 24/7 along with a Japanese-style animation of a girl learning or chilling out. Recently a news spread online related to the girl and below you will read about it.
What Happened to Lofi Girl?
On Monday, November 13 morning, Lofi Girl studies at her desk, as she always does. She will look out the window and turn the page in her sketchbook while her orange cat looks out the window in a lazy way. Then, sometime after 9 a.m. Lofi Girl disappeared while Kanisan’s “Morning Moon” was still playing.
It turns out that Synthwave Boy also stopped streaming. One second Lofi Girl was there and the next she was gone. If you closed your eyes, you might not have seen her go.
The official Lofi Girl account on Twitter shared an update at 9:03 a.m. that showed the empty areas and the glowing windows for each character in the background.

What is the Real Name of Lofi Girl?
Along with “Lofi Girl” streams there is an animation of a girl studying or relaxing. This girl is known as the Lofi Girl, the Lofi Study Girl or the “24/7 lofi hip hop beats” girl, but her real name is Jade. In March 2018, the station started streaming with the Lofi Girl.
In the beginning, Dimitri used Shizuku Tsukishima from the 1995 Studio Ghibli movie Whisper of the Heart as the channel’s face. The streams showed her learning or writing.
When the streams became so popular that the channel had to be shut down for copyright violations, Dimitri decided to keep the Ghibli-style look but give the character a unique personality and asked artists to join. One of the artists who responded was Juan Pablo Machado.
Before moving to Lyon to study at the Émile-Cohl Design School, Machado spent some time at the art school in Bogota, which is where he is from. In September 2018, when he was in the last year of his master’s degree, he chose to answer his school’s call for tenders.
ChilledCow’s bid was for a student busy studying for her classes with vivid images reminiscent of Miyazaki. Machado chose to send in his sketches even though he didn’t know much about the lo-fi style. For the Lofi Girl, different positions were tried out such as lying down and then going back to the first position.
This wasn’t used in the finished product because it took too long to animate. To save time on animation, the background was first just black, but Machado finally chose to put La Croix-Rousse in the window instead.
