Vocaloid NND Weekly Ranking: LINK HERE
Weekly Vocaloid Ranking #120 “Unselected”: LINK HERE
Talk about a spoilerific title, but given their debut album release on Vocaloid@Master11, this shouldn’t really come as a surprise (I’m more surprised at the fact that they “renamed” KAITO as Kyte… XTREEMLY KOOL LETTERZ FTW!!!).
On a minor note, my presence here in V-ism may dwindle for the next 3 months due to my Internship, so I’m really hoping for the other editors to step up and fill in the gaps that I will be missing. I am especially hoping that they got the whole “adding song links + song stats“-thing pat down. <-- I am with you on this.
-Editors: Crimson = DK, DarkGreen = DT, DarkBlue = JM, Violet = dez, Orange = red2
-Song Stats: Rank Up, Rank Down, Unmoved, Previously Unranked, NEW

IN OTHER VOCALOID NEWS:
Luka-sama is coming! So exciting!! On January 29th, “Nenderoid Megurine Luka” will be released.
With the face part from the song “Double Lariat” and the nenderoid puchi “Takoluka” included, it’s really wonderful! I’m looking forward to it!
First, I need to point out that I am not perfect, and never will be. If my translations could ever be considered on par with those of a professional, I would die happy, but as for now this is just a labor of love. I try my best, but I can, and will, make mistakes. I know there are lots of people out there with skills that trump mine easily, hands down, so if anyone notices mistakes in my translations, please point them out so that they can be fixed. Never be afraid to tell me I’m wrong! (^^)v
Also, there’s a few notes I’d like to make about the ranking itself. I thought this was a really good week– a huge improvement over the slumps we’ve been having lately. We got a new Len song, a new Rin song, and new Len/Rin song, a new ‘bananice’ song, and THREE new Kaito originals, one of which made number one. It was really a… diverse week, in terms of songs.
Why is this significant? Maybe it isn’t. Lately, though, the countdown seems to have watered down to half mainstays (only one of which isn’t Miku or Luka or both, and that’s Paradichlorobenzene), and half new Miku or Luka originals. Miku and Luka seem to rule the rankings pretty consistently– or at least, that’s what I’ve come to notice.
So, not only was this a higher-scoring week, but we also got some nice variety thrown in. Hopefully this trend will continue, and other Vocaloids will get to share the spotlight in 2010. ^_^
