First off, let me apologize for the lateness of this week’s ranking review. I’ve been experiencing some 502 Bad Gateway errors for the past week that prevented me from logging in up until yesterday evening (though I still don’t know if I can log in from my home computer, since I’m doing this article now on my office PC, at the risk of getting caught by my supervisors).
Anyway, I really haven’t been watching/listening much of Vocaloid as of late. In fact, I haven’t been able to watch last week’s WVR. Yeah, that’s how busy I’ve been. So hopefully I can rely on the rest of the V-ism staff to do finish up the rest of the article (like adding the opening image, since I can’t go to potentially NSFW ‘sites in my office).
BTW, just in case you’re wondering where I got the subtitle for this week’s review, it’s originally “I’m with CoCo.”

NAHO’s OPENING STATEMENT:
(I apologize for the lateness. I had a lot of other things going on in the background, but I won’t bore you with details. Let’s get started!)
It’s time again for this week’s VocaRan!
Happy birthday, Luka-sama!! I hope your beauty will continue to flourish from now on!
Having said that, this week Luka should rule the rankings. As a result, I wonder how things will turn out…?

- #2: 初音ミクが歌うオリジナル曲→「二人の虹」 (NEW) – A nice and smoothing Miku song, although what got me noticed about this song was the illustration actually. (The same illustrator as for “LINK -Full Version-“)
- #1: 【初音ミク】クソゲー実況プレイ【オリジナル】 (NEW) – Vid’s cool and all, but why is it number one?
- ED Song: 【初音ミクオリジナル曲】粉雪の空 – <no comment>
IN OTHER VOCALOID NEWS:
February has lots of release news. The initial release of “Exit Tunes Presents Stardom 3” will, for some reason, come with a デP-tan figure set. The release date is February 3rd.
Also, another long-awaited Vocaloid only doujin event is coming. On February 7th, “Voc@loid M@ster 11” will be in the Tokyo-Ootakusangyo plaza PiO, opening at 13:00. You might even get a chance to meet the creators…!
Once February has passed, it’ll almost be spring… I say that, but February has just begun, heh.
