A video containing previews of two songs featuring Ring Suzune, more formally known as VFS-01/R, has just been released on NicoNicoDouga. This video also announces the upcoming VOCALOID FESTA 03, as well as the second ‘Everyone’s Vocaloid Project’. More info after the break!
The winners of the Everyone’s Vocaloid Project (Minna no Vocaloid Keikaku, otherwise known as MinBoka or VocaloKeikaku), or Everyone’s Vocaloid Project, had been announced in May 2011 during the VOCALOID FESTA02 (Vocafes for short) sponsored by Wood Bell. Fans had the opportunity to submit illustrations in the hopes that they would be chosen and later become Vocaloids. The two winning illustrations were Hibiki Lui by Yuukari, and Ring Suzune by Muraichi. The voice provider for Lui hasn’t been revealed yet, but it was announced that MiKA, from band Daisy×Daisy, would voice Ring. Three months later, Wood Bell uploaded a video on NicoNicoDouga containing previews of two demo songs, “Yakimochi Toki-Doki Hare no” and “Sweet Pain”, both by Yuuhei Catharsis. This is a side-project by the soundmakers of the doujin circle Yuuhei Satellite, primarily known for their Touhou arranges. You can watch the video below.
More information on the headset Ring is wearing is included in the PV: “the design of her headset is based on a piano. It is also meant to be reminding of a memory plug.”
The full version of these two songs will be revealed during VOCALOID FESTA03, held on September 11 at Tokyo Big Site. Wood Bell also said that “submissions for MinBoka 2 will open soon”, without giving any other further info. Keep an eye on VOCAFES03 if you’re interested!
Lastly, it has also been announced that the two demo songs will be used in the MinBoka game, tentatively called “V・F・S”. Again, we can expect to hear more about it on September 11, so stay tuned!
