May has been a fruitful month for the Vocaloids, Toyota Miku, samples of new voicebanks, the Charity song project and many more… But, I think I could fairly say this May has bought the most million hits than all of this year months combined! xD
So, I’ll cut to the chase, ACUTE and IMITATION BLACK both reached one million views!
Well, let’s get to the details, so stay with us after the break:
Kurousa-P’s “ACUTE” gained it’s millionth view on May 26th, 2011 at 02:29 Japan Time. Below is more information and some illustrations.
“ACUTE” first came out on the 21st of August, 2009. The song’s story is about a love triangle, including a man (Kaito) and two women (Miku and Luka). Though they have been good friends, Miku and Luka both fall in love with Kaito, who is full of regret. Miku becomes engaged to him (since there is a ring on her finger). One night when Miku phones Luka, she finds out that Luka is with Kaito. Miku, feeling betrayed and angered for having her promise broken, goes up to Kaito while he is fondling Luka. Miku pulls out a knife and brings Kaito close to her in front of Luka. The one who she stabbed (herself, Kaito, or Luka) is not clearly described in the video and the interpretation is divided. (Plot synopsis is based on information from Vocaloid Wiki).
Nowfor some lovely illustrations of this song:
On to the next hit!
Natsu-P’s “IMITATION BLACK” hit one million views on the 31st of May, 2011 at 02:54 Japan Time, making it Gakupo’s second hit to enter the one million views list.
“IMITATION BLACK” releaed on the 1st of June, 2009, and comprises Gakupo, Kaito and Len, in a PV by SCL Project as the debut of their Visual-Kei band named VanaN’Ice. The song is about forbidden love and passion for the one they madly desire. The lyrics also suggest that one of the lovers (most likely Len) has been murdered.
There’s no decided interpretation for the song, besides the depiction of a love triangle. According to SCL Project, Len wears a dress because he’s playing the role of the ‘female character’ which is common amongst real Visual-Kei bands. By this statement, the interpretations of the song being “yaoi” are technically incorrect. (Once more based on Vocaloid Wiki. Thanks for your wonderful work!)
Next let’s enjoy some illustrations for this song!
Thank you for reading, and let’s hope this month will bear great fruits like the last!
