*lying in a hammock, slowing fanning himself…*
Uuuhh… slow and busy week is slow and very, very busy… no time to listen to new Vocaloid songs… flash drive with all my Vocaloid songs broke and I had to re-download most of them… going back to work tomorrow… Oh well, enough of my non sequitur ranting and let’s get to this week’s ranking. But before that, I just wanna plug-in deztora and the girls’ UtaRan review. Seriously, they’re already at full-stream in under only 3 articles (while I had to struggle with my groove for 10). Heck, even their layout is perfect! It only serves to make me wanna improve mine… but I got nuthin’.
Last week we saw the controversial return of the “new” entry, World’s End Umbrella. A lot of you guys thought that it was a bit unfair – taking advantage of a loophole in WVR’s rules and new MyList multiplier (which increases the score for each new MyList per week). I just want to know: what do the NND residents think about this? The NND weekly ranking seems to indicate that it got blasted out of the Top-10. How will it go for this week…?
Note: The upload of the Weekly Vocaloid Ranking #125 video has been delayed, we will get it posted on the blog when it’s uploaded.
UPDATE: WVR IS FINALLY UP, THANK YE GADS!!! >__<;;
NAHO’s OPENING STATEMENT:
Everyone, good evening! It’s time for the Vocaloid Ranking!
Kaito-san, happy birthday! I hope everyone gets to enjoy your cool and… sexy? beautiful voice from now on!
Because it’s Kaito-niisan’s birthday week, will Kaito songs dominate the ranking? We’re also into the second half of the Olympics, but don’t count on us here for that!

-Song Stats: Rank-Up, Rank-Down, Unmoved, Unranked, NEW
- #30: 【初音ミク 巡音ルカ】合鍵ガンマンと合鍵忍者【オリジナル】 (Down from 4) – It’s catchy, but it doesn’t appeal to me.
- #29: 初音ミクオリジナル曲 「初音ミクの消失（LONG VERSION）」 (Up from 44) – Whoa… zombie rising from the dead this week… It was the piano version, right? I think that’s what the comments said…

- #26: 【第4回MMD杯本選】 Mの誘惑【MMDドラマ】 (Down from 10) – So is the Hentai Sense standard for Ritsu’s program? I greatly lament the misuse of UTAU talkloid in this video. It has so much potential, but it’s squandered here… other than that I still love this video.

- #18: 【巡音ルカ】Just Be Friends【オリジナルPV】 (Down from 16) – I feel bad about the remix… I kinda liked it. Wasn’t enough to hold my attention, like most of his remixes.
- #17: 【初音ミク・巡音ルカ】 天雪ノ乱舞【オリジナル】 (NEW) – Finally, our first new song. Sheesh! And an unimpressive one at that.
- #16: 【初音ミク】Can’t stop fallin’ in love, baby【オリジナル曲】 (NEW) – The Engrish! >: Can’t stop fallin’ in love… tell me you will be true, forever baby… I’d actually rather have a Miku cover of that than this song.
- #15: 【初音ミク】Sweet Devil【オリジナル】 (Up from 53) – Ah, I was wondering where this went! Same P who did Electric Love, right?
- #14: 【第4回MMD杯本選】 ボーカロイドM-1ぐらんぷり ミクandハク (Down from 6) – <no comment>
- #13: 【第4回MMD杯本選】 だぶるらりあっと (NEW) – Support your local singer-songwriters. I like how I start at Haku the entire time.
- #12: 【初音ミク・鏡音レン】 幻月環 【オリジナル曲】 (NEW) – At first I thought it was meh, but now I like it and have it on my Sansa. This is actually my pick for the Rising Starlet of the Week
- #11: 【初音ミク】愛ト茄子ト 平和ナ果実【オリジナル曲】 (Up from 49) – … Ow.
- THIS WEEK’S PICK-UP: 【GUMI】 dolce～空の絵描きうた～【メグッポイドPV付オリジナル】 (#66 – Unranked) – Like I said before, any GUMI song in rank is always good. You guys should do your part and get this on the Top-30!!! Could you tell me how to get to Megpoid Street? :3 This song is really catchy and hard to get out of my head, but I’m not sure if I like it or not…
- #10: 【KAITOオリジナル 曲】歩ノ路【3者コラボ】 (Up from 22) – Yes, that’s it Kaito, give us more awesome songs! More!
- #9: 【初音ミク】 恋率方程 式 【オリジナル曲】 (Up from 15) – <no comment>
- #8: 【オリジナル曲PV】 WORLD’S END UMBRELLA【初音ミク】 (Down from 1) – Drastic drop after 3 2 “straight” weeks on Top-1… Can’t say I’m surprised, really.
- #7: 初音ミク オリジナル曲 「裏表ラバーズ」 (Up from 12) – I don’t even hate the song anymore. I’m just tired of it now. Please, please, get off my rankings.
- #6: 【デュラララ!!】池袋 ラバーズ【替え歌カバー】 (NEW) – What’s with all the URA-OMOTE!!! parodies lately!? Wait, what’s the difference between 6 and 19? Aren’t we Ura Omotte’d out? Durarara!! Taking the world by storm, one fandom at a time. This one is the Gakupo cover. >:[
- #5: 【初音ミク】 好き好き好き好き好き好き好き好き好き 【オリジナルPV】 (NEW) – Well that was different
- #4: 【鏡音レン】ボクとアリ スのワンダーランド【オリジナル曲】 (NEW) – I like this. It’s fun and fluffy in an 80’s pop-y sense. Makes me go “aw”. れれれP returns! And Len fangirls everywhere rejoiced.
- THIS WEEK IN HISTORY: GGRKS!!! Wahahahahaha~!!! I think GGRKS should have been a super hit! Actually, I think that for not getting a major amount of views or mylists, ggrks is a pretty big hit.
- #3: 【KAITO】 Sweet’s Beast【オリジナル】 (NEW) – Creepy Kaito is creepy xD As long as Kaito gets something for his birthday, even if hes suggestively eating (your) heart.
- #2: 初音ミク オリジナル曲 「ローリンガール」 (Up from 8) – To me, this is the best song of this series from wowaka. I said it last week, and I meant it: I actually do like this song. I honestly think it’s really good. That’s probably the reason instead of just peaking for one week and then dropping off, it actually went up by a huge amount. Lulz at the number of points though. The chorus versions are already starting to roll in.
- #1: 【KAITO・ MEIKO】ホール・ニュー・ワールド【アラジン】 (Up from 11) – Eeeyeah~ I sorta knew this was gonna happen… The only thing left now is for Luka to sing the Japanese version of “I Won’t Say I’m In Love” *hinthint* Are you accusing the Japanese of having bad taste? I hope you don’t consider yourself a child of the 90’s. >: *slaps JM for accusing me of accusing the Japanese for bad taste* DISNEY LOVE! Made my day XD I was doing math all week last week at regular intervals to check to see how many points this was ahead of Rollin’ Girl at any given time, just to make sure it would be number one this week. [/geek] Little known fact: Japan LOVES Disney. They love it so much, they want the English dub over the Japanese dub. I’m not surprised that this one launched into the stratosphere.
- ED Song: 【初音ミ ク】～Party～【オリジナル曲】 – A nice peaceful warm-down.
IN OTHER VOCALOID NEWS:
Well, last week was the last of the Nico Nico Daikaigi tour. I went as well and got to enjoy lots of Vocaloid songs, like “magnet,” “1925,” “Just Be Friends” and the like.
We want to rise too… Anyhow, “Miku’s thank you celebration Thanks(39’s) Giving Day” with Miku-san will be on March 9th (Tuesday) at the Zepp Tokyo venue in Odaiba.
Miku-san’s power will break through into the real world!
(I want to go SO MUCH it actually hurts.) ;_;
First, a stat dump. Let me just say WOW! 841,621 is a record for all songs under with current system and just 1612 points from breaking the all-song/all-system record (RIP=RELEASE in 2009). This is also the first time a non-debuting song has ever hit 700k or more under any circumstances.
Sort of lost in the margins between the above, Kaito’s B-day (7 Kaito songs this week, btw), and all this Omotte are three interconnected stories. First, wowaka is another A-lister who made the Top 3. Second, “Rollin’ Girl” was one of 11 songs who improved rank, 4 of which were out of the Top 30 last week. And third, it’s likely because of all these improvements that only 8 new songs made it to air.
Definitely a lot to take in this week.
A lot indeed. I was sad to see so much plummet on the list. Pardagim Shift, the one I was hoping would make the jump to the top 3 plummetted nearly off the top 100. It was a real shame. We even lost our beloved Pane Dhira to the depths of the non-tracked, 135th place to be exact. As for this week’s stuff, someone get a comfy chair out from storage because Rollin’ Girl is going to be staying for a while. Sweet’s Beast isn’t going to last, and I doubt we’ll even see it on the countdown at all next week. WEU will continue it’s descending flightplan, just like CLW before it, losing nearly 10 spots weekly before it balances out around 60. On another sad note, our beloved White Princess is also following the same path.
