Randomness

Post by Fusion on Fri Dec 24, 2010 4:41 am

You guys know I'm a big vocaloid fan. Lemme share just a little bit of its very nice and somewhat strange world with you guys =) (just in case you were curious). There's a lot of links, and I know how it's a bit aversive when people try too hard to push their interests onto you, so feel free to not do anything xD.

If you can only watch one video, I guess it should be this:


Basically...:
Long story short, Vocaloids are vocal synthesizers. People started by making covers and memes (such as that leek spinning thing), but the true heart of the Vocaloid community lies in original content. Every week, all vocaloid songs uploaded to Nico Nico Douga (like the YouTube of Japan) are ranked by number of views, comments, and favourites during that week, and a ranking video is uploaded similar to music ranking shows you see on TV. Not all the songs are gonna be to your taste, but maybe a few will be.

Nico Singers:
Some people, in fact, like Vocaloid songs so much, they sing it themselves. Internet selection does its work and the cream of the crop rises to the top. And many of them actually went pro. My personal favourite is Tourai. What's even more amazing are the choruses, which collect many covers by these singers into a single video.

composers:
Finally, the most famous Vocaloid composer is ryo, with songs such as World is Mine. ryo and artists who teamed up with him formed the group supercell, who went pro. One of their pro works was the ending of the anime Bakemonogatari, The Story You Never Knew. The singer actually used to be a singer on Nico Nico named Nagi/Gazelle, whose covers of ryo's songs got famous. Supercell also recently did the 14th ending of Naruto Shippuuden.

The Most Popular Song on YouTube is:
The most viewed vocaloid video on YouTube seems to be Ura-Omote Lovers (3.5 million), which is different than in Nico Nico Douga. Frankly, I think the animation/art is superb, and the lyrics brilliantly rhythmical. It's also very fun to sing along to, because it's so fast. But most of us probably won't understand it without english subtitles.

Hey Sunny, what was the song you sang at the party??

XD I suppose this is directed at you, sunny but this has got to be my favourite vocaloid song.


And Kaito's version of rainbow girl is so touching. I've looped it soo many times harhar

It's called from Y to Y, it's an old song, though, and the utatte mitas are much better than the original

I always wonder at how they make such elaborate PVs. Imagine the time and effort that would have went into them! And little Miku is so cute =) Did you see her bite her teddy bear's ear?

Such a soothing song. Btw, is he related to Maaya Sakamoto in any way? =D



It's a duet by Steve Conte and Maaya. I think it's from the Wolf's Rain soundtrack XD
