Oh wait, what? Is it VocaRan time already? Huh, time sure flies fast when you’ve been doing nothing but stare at MEIKO’s tush 24/7… Y’know what? Lemme just embed that in here so you guys could also be hypnotized by MEIKO’s booty.
…Now that I got that out of the way, let’s get on with the rankings… which I am terrified to watch now, since a certain song just hit a million views on NND, and I fear that I might punch a hole in my new 21.6″ LCD monitor. I’ll need a MyList first before I tread into these silent waters.
*ahem* Not yet DK… it’s at under 100 away now, though. I’m F5’ing at the speed of light on this one. Now it is! Congratulations!!
Naho’s Opening Statement:
The time has come for this week’s VocaRan!
DIVA 2nd has finally been released…! Also, July 31st was Gakupo-sama’s second anniversary! Happy birthday, Gakupo!
Now then, this week’s ranking is very very interesting… With Gakupo’s birthday, and it’s just before Comiket, and the MMD Cup starting up again, we should have a lot of variety in our lineup this week.
And with that, let’s go have a look at the ranking, shall we? This week as well, from 30, it’s time to start!
-Editors: Holocauxt, DTKel, Joe Mello, deztora, rebecca, redemtion2, GreenSage , descent87, bunnychan
-Song Stats: Up (↑), Down (↓), Unmoved (→), Unranked (–), New (!!)
- #30: 【初音ミクdark】 colors 【オリジナル曲】 (↓12)
- #29: 【MikuMikuDance】ハートキャッチ☆ガンダム！ / 初音ミクAppend【ガンダム00】 (!!)
No love for G Gundam >: Love the modeling in this one!
- #28: 初音ミクがオリジナルを歌ってくれたよ「ブラック★ロックシューター」 (↑31)
Will this ever make it into the OVA? At the very least it must be included in the DVD/Blueray release, it bothers me. While I love this song, I never thought it fit the image of B★RS that well, but maybe thats just me.
- #27: 【初音ミクSweet】セカイにただヒトリの【オリジナル曲】 (!!)
3/4 <3 As prolific as Miku Append -Dark- has been -Sweet- is building its own strong repertoire.
- #26: 初音ミク – マイラストグラヴィティ (!!)
- #25: 【GUMI】オーバーテクノロジー【オリジナル曲PV付き】 (!!)
Meta This has climbing potential, the whole PV is worth the watch. I’ll watch just for the dancing monkey.
- #24: J-POPの歌詞における「何か」の探され率は異常【初音ミク】 (↓10)
- #23: 初音ミク オリジナル曲 『 Hypersomnia 』 (!!)
I love it when producers use a deeper Miku.
- #22: 初音ミクが円周率10,000桁覚えたようです。 (↓9)
The rank amuses me. Also, I’m disappointed no one realized last week’s ranking window had 22/07: Approximate Pi Day!
- #21: 【鏡音リン】 Last Night, Good Night 【カバー】 (!!)
Somehow, the swing rhythm doesn’t upset the apple cart. Ohno, help me, one of my favorite songs done by Rin. REPEAT!
- #20: 【GUMI】弱虫モンブラン【オリジナル曲PV付】 (↓14)
This has gotten into my head at work a couple times. Annoying, but in a good way.
- #19: 【初音ミクAppend】レディインザシンギングルウム【オリジナル曲】 (!!)
- #18: magnet【初音ミク・巡音ルカオリジナル】 (↑39)
So how many kids do you think plagiarized this to make Luka/Miku fanfiction?
- #17: 【鏡音レン】アウト オブ エデン【オリジナル】 (↓4)
You have my attention, sir. Once again this is how you make a good Len song.
- #16: 【初音ミクAppend】夏と廊下と花畑【オリジナル曲】 (↑57)
As do you, ma’am.
- #15: 【巡音ルカ】円尾坂の仕立屋【和風物語風オリジナル】 (–)
Where’s the inn? My party needs to heal up. One of the most delightfully creepy Vocaloid songs, my Mom’s favorite for some reason…
- #14: 初音ミク・巡音ルカ オリジナル曲 「ワールズエンド・ダンスホール」 (↓13)
- #13: 【オリジナル曲】リンネ【初音ミク】 (↓3)
- #12: 【巡音ルカ】Just Be Friends【オリジナルPV】 (↑19)
- #11: 【巡音ルカ 初音ミク】トゥインクル×トゥインクル【オリジナル曲】 (!!)
Yhe? Easypop and BETTI at it again, just a few weeks after Cheap Time Disco, get to the dancefloor!
- THIS WEEK’S PICK-UP: 【神威がくぽオリジナル】はたらきたくないでござる【るろうニー殿】 (!!)
- #10: 【APヘタリア合作】 ヘタれ！？ 【替え歌】 (!!)
Okay, confession time. Someone explain to me why this show is popular and why I should care.
- #9: 【初音ミクSoft】 ハロ／ハワユ 【オリジナル】 (↓2)
Decent staying power it seems, I’m really smitten with this.
- #8: 【初音ミク】 人間なんか大嫌い 【オリジナル】 (!!)
(^_^)b Not feeling the Vocals.
- #7: 【初音ミクAPPEND】 Parades 【オリジナル曲】 (!!)
Nice and different :3
- #6: 【初音ミク】The Endless Love【オリジナル】 (↑85)
Sounds like a Gundam Wing image song. Vocatrance is best trance, NND seems to agree.
- #5: 【巡音ルカ】 ７days 【オリジナル】【ＶＯＣＡＬＯＩＤ】 (!!)
Where has this stuff been from Luka? These are the songs that really play to her “cool” voice strengths. I agree, her voice sounds great here.
- #4: 【GUMI】モザイクロール【オリジナル曲PV付】 (↓1)
Looks like I missed a good one last week D: Did people really want to make sure the 3-peat doesn’t happen?
- THIS WEEK IN HISTORY: (WVR #95)
This spot is for a look back at the VocaRan one year before. Here are the top five songs from that week.
- H5: Not my favorite Vocaloid song, rather my favorite song of all time! Touching and lovely. One of DECO*27’s best.
- H4: One, two, three, four… if it’s fifth in next week’s history, I’m gonna call shenanigans.
- H3: One of my favorite Gakupo songs. Why can’t more songs like this be made?
- H2: <no comment>
- H1: One of the best Luka songs to date. I don’t know why this isn’t more popular– oh wait, yes I do… people don’t like trance. Russian, wide world of vocaloids indeed.
- #3: 【初音ミク(40㍍)】 トリノコシティ 【オリジナル】 (!!)
I really like the bass guitar and piano combination in the verses. It’s almost a shame to have the other instruments added in. Classic 40㍍, nice pic as well.
- #2: 【初音ミク】家に帰ると妻が必ず死んだふりをしています。 (↑117)
Hey, it’s Steve Martin!
- #1: 【神威がくぽ・他】ヴェノマニア公の狂気【中世物語風オリジナル】 (!!)
Okay, I’ll admit that the lyrics are hard to follow and aren’t exactly melodious, but the instrumentation is awesome, and lord is this pretty to look at. The universe likes me lately. Okay, Len song number one next week! Make it happen, please and thank you! Mothy Magic and good PV, no wonder Tailor shop also got bumped up. So much Miku hate in the comments, lol she is in this song stupids! Admire P’s instead. This is great Gakupo work. Awesome everything here!
- ED Song: 【巡音ルカ】teddy【オリジナル曲】
In Other Vocaloid News:
A concept album that follows the progression from the “birth” to the “disappearance” and “passionate song”, “Hatsune Miku no Shoushitsu / cosMo@暴走P feat. Hatsune Miku” will be released by EXIT TUNES on August 4th.
The 5th MMD Cup has begun and is gaining ground. August will be another month filled with various events! It’s so exciting, isn’t it?
With that, here’s the rest from this week, from 31 onward.
There’s something…right (for lack of a better term) about Gakupo songs oozing visual kei style. I wish it didn’t feel so rare in Vocaloid songs. I mean, yeah, you’re free to do whatever you want with the software, but this guy was the front man for Malice Mizer! Show some respect!
Yay, Lots of new stuff this week. Mosaic Roll had a great run but out top 3 were all deserving and the fall should be expected. Both of Luka’s Dancefloor songs were awesome and even the History brought back good memories, a good week.
…And so with that, we end this week’s Vocaloid Ranking review. Please join us again next week when Meiko hosts a pants off dance off.
