As the graduation season ends in Japan, a new Vocaloid Ranking Special have been uploaded. As opposed to the two before, this Top 100 countdown with a Cherry Blossom theme focused on the best songs from the 8-month span since the 2nd Special. To do so, any video that appeared before SP2 had their score from that special deducted from their total to make up their final point total. This allowed newer songs to earn airtime during the special, especially in the top 3. In addition to maintaining the Kiriban Channel and Otona no Vocoran, a new feature was the “…ga sugoi” lists, in which various contributors to the Vocaloid community are asked to give their Best 3 (ranking is optional). This time round with Megurine Luka entering the competition how will each of the Vocaloid’s songs fare in the ranking? Read on to find out!

Part 5, uploaded on April 9th:
Well, if you have been watching the comments during the fourth part of the Ranking Special then you would pretty much be able to guess what the Top 3 songs are, if not then just watch the last part of the video. Though I must say the No. 1 song has really been performing consistently well in the charts during this season (it’s by Rin, by the way) so it should come as no surprise as to top the rankings this time round.
As usual, songs that are out of the Top 100 ranking will be listed briefly in the Ranking Special. However, only songs from 101st to 1000th will be listed as it will be too much time consuming to list all the 2,456 songs submitted for this ranking. Song no. 2,456 will be given a mention though, as it’s the last song on the ranking. For more information on the Ranking Specials and Episode guide, refer to our Wiki.
That’s it for now, until the next ranking when the summer season comes. See you later!
