Vocaloid NND Weekly Ranking
Weekly Vocaloid Ranking #149 “Unselected”

First off, allow me to vent for a while about my work: IT SUCKS, plain and simple. But at least I made some friends at work to make it all a little bit easier. Unfortunately, the world of office politics is a fickle one, and due to a (not-so) unforeseen circumstance, my friends’ contracts have finally expired. Take note, they’re also part of the project I’m in, so now I’m left with the burden with nobody to talk to… so yes, this is a really desperate time for me.

But anyway, enough about that, let’s move on to this week’s ranking, which will hopefully see some brand-spanking-new songs courtesy of newcomer Lily. Don’t get too excited, though, as we have no idea if songs made from a demo program would be allowed in the charts. Let’s just head on down and find out!

Naho’s Opening Statement:

The time has come for this week’s VocaRan. As Oban is ending, this is another week that’s busy, huh~ Also… For those who participated in Comiket, good work everyone!

Comiket is where people from all over Japan gather two times a year. Everyone, did you get to meet new and interesting people when you were there? Did you want to meet people but didn’t? I imagine there are a lot of people who feel the same way.

People want to meet others and make new friends because that kind of connection isn’t as prominent as it once was… Everyone, you should take the time to meet new people too. Well then, this week as well, from number 30, let’s start.

    This spot is for a look back at the VocaRan one year before. Here are the top five songs from that week.

    • H5: <no comment>
    • H4: BRB, adding this back again to my Sansa.
    • H3: <no comment>
    • H2: <no comment>
    • H1: Uh, don’t remember this one.
  • #3: 【弱音ハク】探偵弱音ハクの憂鬱【亞北ネル】 (!!)
    HAKU!! I loled pretty hard through the whole thing.
  • #2: 【GUMI】モザイクロール【オリジナル曲PV付】 (↑5)
    GUMI is really owning the VocaRan lately. Between this song, YowaMon and this week’s Top-1, I think we may have found Miku’s replacement. I wouldn’t say “replacement” (each have their own good/bad traits) but I have been a GUMI fan, so I’m happy to see her more in the rankings.
  • #1: 【GUMI】 会いたい 【オリジナル曲】 (!!)
    I… wha-… huh… To the P of this song: ARE YOU A WIZARD!? Dios/SignalP did the music, no wonder its amazing (I love what he did w/ her voice). I have a new top GUMI song.

In Other Vocaloid News:

Lily-san has finally arrived!

The voice from m.o.v.e’s yuri, the illustration by KEI (yes, that one), the database worked on by avex, the unique VOCALOID2 Lily will be released from Internet Co. on August 25th.

(This news is a week early because next week’s info section will be a notice about SP5.)

Final Thoughts/Analysis:

GUMI really is starting to get more recognition, awesome! I hope this happens w/ some other Vocaloids soon (Len and Miki would be awesome). While it appears Lily’s demo hasn’t made a huge splash yet, but I’m excited to see what happens after she gets officially released (ohplzplz a new samfree “Night” series song!!!).

…And so with that, we end this week’s Vocaloid Ranking review. Please join us again next week, and I’m still infatuated with MEIKO’s ass, mind you…

  1. I was hoping to see the awesome cover of Good Night by Gumi (Original by Miki), I was lucky to find that song when it appeared in the daily watcher

  2. asfkajsfh how could hello/howareyou fall to 56?! ;__;

    but, I'm still glad Gumi got two songs in the top 3 today! Go gumi!

  3. Nice to see all the GUMI songs and all that~!

    (Watching the Vocaran is painful this week… All those comments in English? They were really bad.)

  4. I’m pleasantly surprised and quite happy to see that GUMI ranked first again after Mozaik Role.

    I like how Gumi’s voice is rendered in [aitai]~ I don’t know, but I find it to be well done and well, realistic, I suppose?

  5. anyone noticed “The Game Of Life” in rank5’s ナキムシピッポ?
