NAMI‘s ENDING NOTES:
Number one this week was KarapP’s original Kasane Teto song “Metro”. Congratulations!
At times when the endless grind gets you down, there’s a warm, melodic song here for you ♪
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. ^^; (NOTE: After this article, I will be taking out this blurb. Those who can read should realize what this section is by now. Thank you.)
deztora: Reminded by this week in history’s number three, my pick for this week is the Towano original Vague. A song that makes good use of Towano’s exceptional voicebank, it’s a must-listen for UTAU fans who are also fans of good music!
bunnychan: This time I’m featuring one of my all-time favorite songs, “Dreamy Dream” by IruuP. This song features Teto on main vocals w/ Luka on backing (honestly, you hardly hear her at all). This song tends to get repeated multiple times whenever it plays on my Sansa and is one I’ll never tire of.
Man, a lot of great stuff fell hard from last week. Next week is looking to be great, though, especially with more videos rolling in from the Kouhaku UTAU Battle that’s going on. Oh, what’s that? You have no clue what that is? Well basically, there are two teams: white and red. If you enter your NND ID number in a box that’s linked on the site, it’ll shuffle you into one of the two teams. Then, when you upload an UTAU video, it’ll be a video for that team. The tags for it are 紅白UTA合戦2010, UTAU紅組2010, and UTAU白組2010 (the last two referring to the individual teams, red and white respectively). This’ll be going on until, like the opening said, more than 200 people have done so. Exciting deshou?
Funny, I was more blown away by more Pickups than the main Ranking this week. The top three weren’t bad, but nothing like #64 or the Out of Ranking one. Though I will say #6 had great vocals. I wonder if we’ll see more Miko stuff as it gets closer to her birthday….
And that’s it for this week. Tune in next time, where I review the latest bonus chapter of Genshiken in great detail! (…uso)
