After the past week I honestly don’t have a lot to say right now. Nami’s Opening Statement this week is a good sum of what I’d like to say, so I’ll just jump straight to it.

Sorry for the wait. It’s time for the Weekly UTARan!

Last week-end, a disaster occurred, with an earthquake and a tsunami striking mainly the Touhoku region. There are a lot of casualties and missing persons, a lot of victims. Many things still remain unpredictable, and it’s all very worrying. It’s not much, but I hope this video will ease your heart a little.

☆THIS WEEK IN HISTORY (Weekly UTAU Ranking #70)


The number 1 was ”Tokushu na Seiheki wo Motsu BASARALOID Hentai Ooji Taikyuusen,” with BASARALOID. This week I don’t feel like talking a lot. I just want to get back to brighter days, so we can smile again.

To conclude this ranking, let’s see number 21 to 100, as well as the extra ranking number 6 to 25. See you next week.

Each week we’ll feature one reader’s video pick. If you’d like to see your pick here, please comment and list the video and why you like it; it can be any video, so long as the main focus is UTAU!

This week reader nyaa recommended the updated version of Armillary Sphere by Pika-P. They stated, “The same pretty video & music, with improved vocals. Just beautiful.” I completely agree! Wow, you guys are throwing out some excellent recommendations, please keep it up!

Still don’t have a lot more to say; my comments next to songs this week pretty much sums it all up.

What I’d like to do is point out a couple of stores that are doing sales to help raise money for Japan. KarenT will be donating all the money they make between March 16th to April 15th to the Japanese Red Cross. HobbyLink Japan is doing a disaster relief sale. There is also, of course, our post here that points out NND’s efforts. This is only a small portion of donation options that are available. Our hearts go out to Japan and we wish them only the best.

    1. Wait, Holocauxt? That's interesting… I wonder why.

      Anyway, no comment on that amazing "Imitator" cover by Defoko? It's so clear!! :O I also love inaphon's nonsense Pine song. It's really catchy. 😀

      Oh, the name and link are missing on history #5…

      As far as recs go, is a PV okay? There's a PV of "Orbital" that I really like (sm8733626). I like the song, too, and the video features a lot of different UTAU. Some of the art's a little stiff, but for the most part, it's really well put together.

      1. Oii, that was where I had to stop for a night, so I was in a bit of a hurry. I will correct that ASAP.

        Anything goes for the Reader's Picks, so long as the UTAU is the main focus (if it would allowed in any part of the UTAURan then it's pretty much fair game). If you would like I'll add your pick to the list; is there anything else you would like to add about it?

        1. Well, since it's an UTAU-PV, I guess it'd be in the Extra Ranking… so that's my rec, then! I don't think I have anything else to add about it, though. ^_^;

    2. Haha, it's actually all me in these articles 99% of the time, though I can see how it's hard to tell Holocauxt and my color's apart; I'll see if there's anything I can do about that.

      And I'm glad AkiGlancy likes my comment. It's a BEAUTIFUL piece of work.

  1. #6 is really interesting. Gotta applaud inaphon's use of Pine there. Loving his Pamyu song too~ [/fangirl]

    Thanks for putting up my rec ! If I could rec something again, here's "Futari" (http://www.nicovideo.jp/watch/sm10690456) by neL/Maiyo-P. A really nice and calm song with Yufu and Sayu, their voices really fit together.

    Last but not least hoping for all the best for Japan, I wish I could help more but I'm a broke college student as it is ;_;
