Design Of GUMI For “Megpoid” Revealed!
Internet software company, which was revealed to be releasing a new Vocaloid character to be voiced by Nakajima Megumi earlier on, has now unveiled the design of their latest Vocaloid character which will be titled “Megpoid”.
The new Vocaloid character was designed by manga artist Yuuki Masami (of Mobile Police Patlabor and Birdy the Mighty fame) and the software itself will be released on June 26th 2009 at a pre-order price of 15,750 yen. It’s already available for pre-order in Amazon Japan. For more information regarding the software you can visit the official Megpoid page on Internet software company’s website. Here’s the demo video, confirmed by ITMedia, which was embedded on the first Nakajima Megumi post. Megpoid does sound strange in this video, but that was because the VSQ was tailored for Gackpoid. (Thanks htsuji for pointing this out!)
And for those of you who are fans of Nakajima Megumi, you may want to purchase the software since you can get to create songs using Nakajima Megumi’s voice. =)

She's like seven feet tall. XD
She's designed in the anime style, she only LOOKS tall.
Huh. I'm kind of disappointed. xD
Heh, INTERNET's Vocaloid designs always disappoint me, just like Gakupo does xD
Oh well, I doubt I'll like her voice too – so Megupo, huh…? =/
No, Gumi, Megpoid is her last name (I think)
She looks slightly like Ranka, just taller… =3
And her first song will be Seikan Hikou… >_>
I think she will be the 04. XD
Well, this is the second Vocaloid by INTERNET Company, after Kamui Gakupo =)
CV01 (Hatsune Miku), CV02 (Kagamine Rin and Len) and CV03 (Megurine Luka) are Vocaloids who are created by Crypton. So they're basically different brands. xD
I think she's cute… I preffer KEI's designs, but Gumi doesn't look bad at all! She reminds me of some magical girl from the future ^_^
I actually like this Megupo. So pretty~ ^^
Her song was revealed already. If you have Niconico account, go watch http://www.nicovideo.jp/watch/sm6608376 .
Her way of singing sound a bit strange but that is because the VSQ file is originally made for Gakupo (not tailored for her).
To tell the truth, when I found this on April 1st, I thought it was a fake and April fool's joke and completely forgot it.
I did embed that video on http://www.vocaloidism.com/2009/05/next-vocaloid-…
But I'm not sure if it's real or fake. Since it's not confirmed yet by the Internet Company. =/
Me too 🙂
But according to an internet news site itmedia.co.jp, it's real.
Oh, ITMedia is a reliable source, so I can believe that it's real xD
I'll edit the article with that embed later on, thanks for the link! =D
Also Amazon.co.jp started to take pre-orders.
It says it's the first press limited edition but doesn't show us what the bonus would be.
Maybe the publisher hasn't decided yet, I suppose.
I didn't like much her design… but her voice is beatiful <3 ~
I love her design I get why people complain about it D:
