Title does not necessarily reflect the opinions of the editors of the UTAU Ranking posts. Actually, just the opposite. They revamped the UtaRan video format, and I, personally, kind of like it. In turn, I revamped the layout for these posts. I sincerely hope you enjoy. =)
Got a lot in store for you guys this week… I intentionally picked a picture with Ruko in it because apparently I totally missed her birthday. And boy is my face red! I didn’t get her a present or a blog post or anything! So this is my way of saying “happy birthday”. Happy birthday, Ruko! I know one blogger in particular who will be especially happy about all the songs coming out for your birthday. =D
Is it little old me you’re talking about there? 😀 I forgot about it too. Been busy. >< It's hard to keep track of all the birthdays, I may write them on next year's calender so I DON'T miss them. I LOVE YOU RUKO PLEASE FORGIVE ME!!
But enough chit-chat. Let’s get right to the good stuff! It’s the reason you guys are here, right? Onward! (Oh, and let me know what you think of the layout changes, please and thank you.) ^^;

Is this a new UTAU? Sounds nice. =O
- #16: コイヲシテイマス 水谷絵理【人力Vocaloid】 (↓11)
Ellie’s cuteness is hypnotizing… no, no! I love Ryo-chan! Ryo-chan!! Not too much into the voice, but the video is adorable.
- #15: 【重音テト】おにぎり【オリジナル】 (!!)
Lulz at the picture, and Teto’s voice really shines here.
- #14: 【天音ルナ（0704）】アーミラリ・スフィア【MMD】 (!!)

A nice, basic Teto song here.
☆THIS WEEK’S PICKUPS
- #21: 【揺歌サユ・Mac音ココ】今このとき【オリジナル曲】
Happy second anniversary Sayu-chan! You are still one of my favorite UTAU, and I hope to see many great songs from you in the future. After listening to Sayu’s voice, I will be searching and getting more songs by her.
- #26: 【大和内庵オリジナル曲】飛花落葉【UTAU】
Now this is a high-quality, immensely under-appreciated UTAU. I have like, two songs with him. And they’re both phenomenal. This voice works really well here.
- #31: 【UTAU】*虚構ノ庭園*【デフォ子オリジナル】
Always glad for more Defoko love. The drawing is amazing. *drool*
- #40: 【UTAUオリジナル曲】沙野カモメ – 願い事【重音テト】
I still believe songs in these genre is where UTAU and Vocaloids really shine; their voices fit it so well.
- #43: 【重音テト】ユニバース【オリジナル】
I wish Teto’s voice was louder here.
- #47: [重音テト]こいにこい[オリジナル曲]
- #48: 【UTAU/淡水ウパ】AM
Oooh, nice! Never thought I would download an Upa song. Love this.
- #62: 【NAMELESS】parakeet【UTAUオリジナル】 (NEW VB)
This is a nice-sounding voice, but since it’s male, it’s most likely doomed to obscurity. Might download the song, though.
- #63: 【桃音モモ】はちみつ色【オリジナル】
A sweet song.
- #64: 【ＵＴＡＵ新音源配布】 サヨナラの瞬き（カバー） 【歌撫キスケ】 (NEW VB)
This probably wouldn’t sound as lame if it didn’t have to follow NAMELESS. Also, overdone song is blah blah you know the rest.
☆WEEKLY RANKING PART 2
- #10: 真夜中の雨がつれてくるものは、忘れてしまいたいほどに大切な記憶 (!!)
Uh, yeah… always up for more Defoko… neat coincidence. The more I hear Defoko’s voice, the more I’m in love.
- #9: 【重音テト】 ヘッドバンキング☆サムライ 【ダンサムアレンジ】 (!!)
Innnnnnnteresting. Not sure I like the rhythm, though. Image made me LOL.
- #8: 【桃音モモ】lgk LUV【オリジナル】 (!!)
Beautiful. The world could use more Momo, whisper or otherwise. I approve of this image. Oh, and the song is good too. Imageimage….
- #7: 【エルシャダイ】ルシフェルのonly my railgun【UTAU人力】 (↓3)
- #6: 【VIPPALOID祭り】初音ミクの分裂→破壊【UTAUカバー】 (↓1)
Boy am I sad this dropped out of the top 5! [/sarcasm] There have been a handful of UTAU covers of this, all using different voicebanks. I love them all
especially the ones w/ Ruko.
- #5: とかちロイドで「プリコグ」【Voc@loidM@ster祭り4】 (!!)
Okay seriously, what… no, no, never mind. Sounds good.
- #4: aloof-重音テト shortPVのような何か (!!)
Ahhh I love these models. Song’s good too. Good song and nice video.
- #5: 【im@s×SLAM PINK】 もうHOIなんてしない～ボカマス祭り4～
- #4: 【エルシャダイ】ルシフェルのonly my railgunに映像つけてみた
That video, what in the world….?
- #3: 【MMD】蟹音ぱん。を作ってみた。
What’s up with Pan’s hair? Pan’s hair doesn’t look like that. B(
- #2: 【重音テト】てってってー てっとってとー【UTAU+MMD】
Yeah, we really needed another one of these videos. [/sarcasm] This reminds me, I need to make this a ringtone on my phone….
- #1: 【アイドルマスター】Voc@loidM@ster祭り4 ＯＰ【VOCALOID】
Coooooooool. I love seeing fandoms mesh. But seriously, what kind of god-like editing do they use on those im@sloids to make them sound so smooth? They must use a list of programs a mile long. Love this one.
☆THIS WEEK IN HISTORY (Weekly UTAU Ranking #53):
- H5: 【重音テト】 そう言えば、忘れてた 【オリジナル曲】 – I want a television like that.
- H4: 【Voc@loidM@ster祭り3】スタ→トスタ→【桃音モモ】 – Too…. cute…. *dies*
- H3: 【Voc@loidM@ster祭り3】ほめ春香ファンタジア【Mac音ナナ・木曜っぽいど】 – OHGOD. o_<
- H2: 【初音ミク×重音テト×Aquestone】3拍子5拍子7拍子【オリジナル曲】 – I remember this one, very nice.
- H1: 【リン＆テト】 汽車の窓が映す恋 【オリジナル】 – Oh! Oh! I have this song! Ahh, nostalgia. I also remember this one. Teto and Rin go well together.
- #3: 【春香ロイド】 耳のあるロボットの唄 【Voc@loidM@ster祭り4】 (!!)
*sigh* I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised… sounds good though. Song is cute.
- #2: 【重音テト】 KING OF THE BLUE!! 【オリジナル曲】 (!!)
Don’t really like it. Everything about it is solid, I just… don’t like it. Might be a matter of taste. The opening lines gave me chills, veryvery nice.
- #1: 【D’n’B】 シーケンスライフ 【雪歌ユフ】 (!!)
This, however, is awesome. I love a good Yufu song. Hurray for Yufu! Amazing use of Yufu’s voice. I hope this producer does more w/ UTAU.
- ED: 【欲音ルコ】 my wish 【オリジナル曲】
Good way to get us prepped for the slew of Ruko songs in next week’s ranking. My lovely Ruko, you sound so amazing here. *swoons*
NAMI‘s ENDING NOTES:
Number one was tom_atom-san’s song with Sekka Yufu, “Sequence Life”. Congratulations! It’s a very fashionable song, very lovely ♪
Since this is also tom_atom-san’s first time using UTAU, I think we should keep an eye out for more works from him in the future ♪
Well then, it’s time for the ending, consisting of the rest of the top 100 ranked songs and the rest of the 25 extra ranking songs. Until next time!
This is an experimental new section I’ve decided to try out after mulling it over for a while. Here I (and any other editor who feels like it) will post an UTAU video that is considered a “must-see”. The only requirement is it must be an UTAU original song. It could be a PV, an MMD video, or even just a really cool song. It doesn’t have to be new, but it can’t have been mentioned in this section before. We shouldn’t have that problem yet, though, since this section just got started. ^^;
deztora: My pick for this week is No Reaction. It’s a really cool song with a really great tuning of Teto’s voice, and I’m hoping to help it get some much-needed recognition.
bunnychan: My pick is for #ffffff for Shirataki Ito by my favorite producer, UtsuP. I think her voice fits really well w/ the style. I really like Ito’s nasally voice as well.
We had a nice variety this week, which is always good. I’m actually a little sad for the loss of the New UTAU section, although that means less time spent painstakingly romanizing each name on the list…
We’re baccckkkk, and w/ a shiny new layout for the WUR. Do be sure to give dez some feedback so we can make help make it even better. Anyhow, some great images (lol) and songs this week. If I had to pick a single one, I’d say listen to the ending, ’cause Ruko is awesome like that.
Hope you enjoyed the brand new UTAU Ranking, and hope to see you next week for another installment! And tell me what you think of the new layout, please. [/redundancy]
