Weekly Vocaloid Ranking #114 – “Here comes a New Challenger!”

Last week, the Vocaloid community saw the release of SF-A2 Miki, Hiyama Kiyoteru and Kaai Yuki to the public. However, it was only a couple of days before this week’s ranking tally, which leaves their first impression up in the air. Will any of their songs be able to make it into the Top-10? Will they be able to last, or will they have the same popularity lull that GUMI had?

Let’s head on over to this week’s chart review and find out…! The chart review is still incomplete at the moment, but I’ll let the other editors finish the job (I am paying them in M&M’s, after all).


-Editors: Crimson = DK, DarkGreen = DT, DarkBlue = JM, Violet = dez, Orange = red2
-Song Stats: Rank Up, Rank Down, Unmoved, Previously Unranked, NEW

(Don’t listen to him, we don’t get any M&M’s. At least, I don’t…) =/

This week saw the release of all three of the new vocaloids, and the December 8th release of the January 2010 issue of DTM Magazine announced that “Hatsune Miku append: dark/soft” is being recorded. How much more are they going to do…?


A further elaboration of a prior point.  The #1 spot has been held on consecutive weeks only 20 times in the VocaRan’s history, and 3 times only twice.  Hachi has had two of the songs this year (the other being the one I can never properly write), and “clock lock works” has a very viable chance of landing in the Pantheon of Vocaloid Songs.

Additionally, this has been only the second time in 2 years that no ryo song has been in the top 30 (The other being week 91).  A lot of the other 2008 songs seem to have been phased out, which is good news for some of you.


  • 2 Million: Koi wa Sensou (Approx. views: 1.85M)
  • 1 Million: Yokkora Sex (941k)
  • 500,000: Ura Omotte Lovers (450k)


Yeah, sorry about being late with this.  This will probably be my new time slot from now on.  Oh, and the candy is a lie.

The introduction of the AH-crew Vocaloids has shaken up the countdown in ways I hadn’t expected.  The old favorites have been dropped down on the countdown at least five spots.  It was a day of gains for Luka and the newer bloods.  Fate:Rebirth is falling slower than the others, and, shattering all of my expectations, CLW only lost 11% by gaining twice the amount of views!

I had to retire Desire, Boukyaku Alice, and InfiniteHOLiC from the tracker from dropping down underneath the 100 mark.  R-18 just barely squeaked by at 97.  Chain Girl (sad as I am to see it go) and Gravity=Reality won’t make another week.

Fate:Rebirth, Pretty Fundoshi, and GUMI’s Bakemonogatari, will sink down into the 20s, or possibly worse.  With the new flood of Miki, Yuki, and Kiyoteru songs and their first full week on the countdown, we might see quite a few leaps.  The chaos isn’t over yet.  I’ll be keeping a close eye, I hope you will too.

  1. Even with the Miki/Yuki/Kiyoteru rage, Paradichlorobenzene made it to 36. WITHOUT THOSE NEW SONGS IT WOULD HAVE BEEN AT 32. AT 31 IF IT HADN'T BEEN FOR LUKA LUKA NIGHT FEVER.

    I'm still in my desperate hopes. I love that song.

    No songs for Yuki this week. I kinda understand that…her songs were not really exceptional.
    And I was wondering if Eternal Snow would make it, but it didn't. Too bad.

    1. Hey, I'm with you. Shoutariffic science forever! o/

      I, too, am sad about a lack of good Yuki songs this week. I'm optimistic about "forbidden fruit" though. =)

        1. Oh man, I'm sorry. "Shotariffic." Better?

          「俺は男だ!」 only works when Len isn't being shotariffic. =D

          About Yuki, I thought so too, but there haven't been that many views/mylists since last week's bokaran, so at this point it'd be a long shot. Haha. Long shot. Get it.

  2. I really can't wait to see magnet get kicked out of the top 30. Half of the people who like it seem to be like my sister and just like the picture…

    I think that Named After You was really great and I hope to see CLW and JBF stay around for quite a while.

      Then you probably won’t like part 2 of the Vocaloidism Awards D:

  3. I'm glad that Hello Planet is increasing. We need more chiptune x Vocaloid. Also, I don't know why, but I really don't like the #1. Who knows, maybe it will grow on me like JBF did.

    1. It's very… Vintage, I guess the word I'm looking for is. It's not normally something I'd like but I couldn't bear to turn away. I also noticed the drips, cracks, and flowers blooming all were in synch with the music. It was a good effort.

      I predict a JBF Phenom with that one, matching Mylist points and Views to create a stable floating point.

  4. Does anyone know where I could get a list of the vocaloid weekly rankings with english titles? I just can't read Japanese yet.
