Finally we have our first Len song with over two million views on Nico Nico Douga and unsurprisingly it’s Servant of Evil (Or Aku no Meshitsukai), in which this feat was achieved on Aug 16th 2010 @ 12:07 hours Japan Time. Coincidentally this is also the first Len song to reach over one million views back in March 2009. For more information and images just continue reading after the break.

Here’s an description regarding the story of the song itself, just to refresh everyone’s mind on it.
The story of the song is told through the views of the evil princess’s servant, Len, who is actually her twin brother. The evil princess has done many cruel things and is cold by nature, but her brother only sees the nice and innocent side of her, serving her whole-heartedly all the while. Then, while on a trip to another land, Len sees a woman with green colored hair (Hatsune Miku) and falls in love with her instantly. However, the Daughter of Evil, being jealous of what she saw, orders Len to have her killed, in which Len obeys without any hesitation.
Later, the woman’s partner (Kaito) as well as an uprising army (lead by Meiko) attack the castle in which the evil princess is living in wanting to take the evil princess’s life. It was then her servant came up with an idea to save her by exchanging each other’s clothes and trade places instead. As they are identical twins, no one would be able to tell that the “evil princess” is actually a fake. Unsurprisingly, everyone fell for the trick and the servant, disguised as the princess, was sent to the execution table and beheaded, as the princess watches and grieves for her brother. However, Len says that he has no regrets and and was glad to be of service to her princess even till the very end.
With the addition of Servant of Evil this would make it the 16th Vocaloid-related song and overall 81st on the Nico Nico Douga 2 million views video list. And onto some of the images created by Pixiv after the song’s first million views.
Congrats on Servant of Evil and hope we can get to see even more Vocaloid songs entering the million views list on Nico then.
