That’s right people, it’s been one whole year since this blonde lady invaded our ears. Won’t you join us in celebrating her past year?
Lily was INTERNET Co.,Ltd’s third Vocaloid, after Gakupo and GUMI, and her voice is supplied by Masuda Yuri of the Japanese band m.o.v.e. Her character designer is KEI (who also designed the Crypton Vocaloids). She is different in the fact that her design originally appeared in August of 2009 on the cover of m.o.v.e’s anime theme song cover album, “anim.o.v.e 01” as a personification of the lead singer. It wasn’t until May of the next year that a Vocaloid (originally called “Code Name: Lily”) was introduced in the DTM MAGAZINE. Two demos were released on her product page before release, both being covers and remixes of m.o.v.e songs (with Gakupo on the rapping vocals). A music video starring her and companion Mosh titled “Schwarzgazer” was released on both Nico Nico Douga and YouTube, however the vocals were done by the group m.o.v.e, not the Vocaloid. It is interesting to note that the video contains both the Japanese text version and an English one.
Her release saw multiple related promotional products as well, which included t-shirts, mugs, straps, and other various products. She also got a 1/8 figurine by Phat Company. Her products are still being released and can be acquired at stores such as AmiAmi and Hobby Search.
