No, seriously, this is an actual plea for help. We have been severely lacking in Vocaloid news lately, since more of our editors have gone missing –
DTKel has been MIA for a while now *Smacks DK* I haven’t been MIA, mind you. I am always available on the IRC/MSN/YIM/forums if anyone needs to contact me. Also, I have just asked rebecca to help me translate the news article regarding the new upcoming Vocaloid “Lily”. More information on this will come up very soon. and JM is… oh, I don’t even wanna know the messy side of that one. Anyway, we really need people who are willing to contribute news and information with regards to anything Vocaloid-related, and you don’t even need to apply for an editor position. DTKel has also posted some useful tutorials on the forums on how to make articles using our WordPress system:
- Basic Blogging and Article Editing on WordPress
- Blogging Rules On Vocaloidism
- How to keep links unbroken
Every little bit of help would be greatly appreciated, so please contribute whatever you can to our Vocaloid knowledge pool. I’ve been seriously thinking about recruiting Crofesima from the “Queen of Spades” blog for her awesome WVR Top-10 song comments and summaries.
Is this a good time to mention I’m back? Well I’m back! Who missed me? *crickets chirp* Hmmm. Well anyway, since I’m back, look forward to the UtaRan posts returning as well!
Naho’s Opening Statement:
It’s time for this week’s VocaRan. To the wonderful people who brought us this recent Vocaloid Master, thanks so much for the hard work! There was a lot of variety in the genres collected there.
This event, at a critical time of the season, was the reason behind the rush of new songs here, but has it hit its expected climax? Watch the rankings carefully!

- H5: <no comment>
- H4: <no comment>
- H3: <no comment>
- H2: <no comment>
- H1: magnet debut here…
- #3: 【古川本舗】 グリグリメガネと月光蟲 【初音ミクdark】 (–)
If you ask me, which I know you didn’t but I’ll say it anyway: this deserves to be number one.
- #2: 【オリジナル曲PV】沙上の夢喰い少女【巡音ルカ】 (!!)
As happy as I am that hachi is using Luka, see my comment on number three.
- #1: 初音ミクオリジナル曲「フラッシュバックサウンド」 (!!)
Although I do think it’s great that KuwagataP has a number one song. His stuff always rocks.
- ED Song: 【鏡音リン】LostMemory【オリジナル】
In Other Vocaloid News:
Golden Week and Vom@s are over, and it seems everyone has run out of steam, or, it seems there are a lot of people who are tired out. This feeling is commonly called “May blues.” But if we set our sights on a new goal, then we can get out of this funk.
But more importantly, this talk of “Lily-san”… just which direction will it go, I wonder…
Also, UtaRan articles will be starting up again, beginning with next week! Look forward to it!

…And so with that, we end this week’s Vocaloid Ranking review. Please join us again next week, and we really need your help! >_<;;
