  1. May I just say that I am IN LOVE with her design? Not to mention I can’t keep her demo song off loop (I’d love it if they released a full version of it). I’m expecting some great things from SeeU!

  2. Ooooooooooooh~♥ I love her design it looks very nice!! And her voice, IS AMAZING. 😀 The only thing I’d have to say against it is the cat ears, I wouldn’t mind if they were cute bear ears that were the speakers. Or something along those lines. Cat ears feel a bit overused you know?

    But I love everything else about her!!! She might be up there at the top of my favorite Vocaloids list next to Luka, Gumi, and Kaito. 😀

  3. RANGE: C3~C5
    Japanese voicebank: check
    Zettai ryouiki: checkNekomimi: checkEnglish Voicebank: KoreanGreat potential undoubtedly. She’ll kill Iroha Nekomura and could very well endanger Luka.Drawbacks:Korean interface, although the VB is undoubtedly capable of doing proper English (enough phonemes) I don’t see anyone except Korean people use it this way.Good luck to render her hairs properly on MMD

  4. Shes adorable and the demo of her voice is freaking awesome. Random thought but wouldn’t it be cool if Rosetta Stone paired up with Crypton and the other vocaloid makers to make a learning program that not only teaches another language but also how to use the vocaloid program properly over a series of courses.

  5. Amazing design! I can’t wait! :3
    weird.. when I was reading about this and found out that she sang that song, I was actually already listening to it on repeat XD

  6. I agree with most people that the cat ears are a bad idea. This why I like the crypton vocaloids mainly because their designs are more versatile. For example Rin can look cute in one song, but she can also look badass while wielding dual pistols in another (see some of minus-P’s works). If she had cat ears though that wouldn’t look right and would limit sort of music/PV’s she could be used in without altering her design. 

  7. Her design just blew me away, and when I heard her VOICE, wow, I can see why there is such positive feedback.  I LOVE See-U!  Her design is so beautiful, and I can’t stop listening to her demo.  The song is an amazing choice as well, there have been SO many other Vocaloid covers (and I can see why)!  All the new Vocaloids coming up are making me so excited!

  8. Beautiful design, amazing voice, what’s not to like? I seriously think that her character item should be cream puffs. I also believe that her cat ears are actually part of her mic head set, since they’re speakers and all. But seriously, she looks like a cream puff all nice and sweet!

  9. Wow, she looks cute & have a nice voice =)
    Hope she will be a little bit better sing i like here voice but some pitches sound not really perfect.
    well its a demo?
    so i hope there will be more out. ^^

  10. I hate saying this, but doesn’t se look TOO MUCH like a certain UTAUloid?
    Although, that won’t stop me from appreciating her. I love the voice, and she will make a GREAT FIRST KOREAN Vocaloid. Who cares about the cat ears? If you don’t like them, ignore them! If you’re gonna make a cover, leave them out =P
    I really like this one. She has the same charm as Iroha. Cute, but EPIC voice!

  11. not quiet amaze because of the voice… yes its true!!! the voice is good, but not originally the voice of a vocaloid… Seeu’s voice provider was Kim Dahi a korean artist… ^_^ i love the character, Cute!

  12. Was i the only person who thought that the “I fantasy” song was sung by a different vocaloid? I heard it was this other one with a blue design… cute chara though… even though i dont like the cat ears much.

  13. I’d love to participate in the contest since I’m Korean buuutttt aksdjf;laskdjfa;lsdkjfsa;ldkjf!!!

    They say that I need to renew my social security number, but I can only do that when I’m in Korea EFF! OTL Why do Korean sites gotta hate on their own citizen?

  14. She being released on the 21st of october! it’s on the “SBS Artech_Vocaloid” twitter page as well as on her official site now xD
