I know some vocafags are still out there, so let's have some nice, general vocaloid discussion here! There's a Western Vocaloid Community thread on /w/: >>71172 , but there isn't a thread for general vocaloid discussion as far as I'm aware so I hope this is okay.

>Who are your favourite composers?
I always come back to Okame-P and Yuyoyuppe, I'm a sucker for angsty songs with vague but heartful lyrics that allude to tragedy. I used to like Utsu-P and I listen to a lot of other genres but things like Palette and Leia are my staple.

>Who are your favourite vocaloids?

I used to like the Kagamine twins back in the day, Rin especially because she tends to sound bright and sharp, but I was never one of those people who disliked Miku for being #1. Can't really say I remember any Vocaloid past 2012, there's just too many of them now and they didn't have enough of the same meme magic and intricate story PVs that made the previous characters memorable.

>Any songs you'd like to share?

"Existence" ft. LOLA by shu-t, found it while looking for proof LOLA and LEON could sound good. The GTA font and the fact LOLA's face looks like she came out of an Ace Attorney game makes me laugh.

Why do I only see this word when people are talking about loids who are sort of popular, but just don't get good merch or concerts?
Not hating, it just throws me off when there are actual no-content loids like Chika and Unity-chan that people in certain circles would pretend to like to look cool.

favorite producers will always be hachi and pinocchioP (mushroom mother and common world domination are TOP TIER). miku always has the catchiest songs imo, but i like luka and gumi's voice banks best.

sage for blogpost but happy synthesizer weirdly makes me sad because it is basically the entirety of ninth grade for me. reminds me of when i used to cosplay as vocaloid characters at cons and do the dances, including this one which still have embedded in muscle memory. and this song makes me miss when the nnd dance videos would get uploaded to yt without being taken down! even though it was the same 5 or 6 dances i loved seeing everyone's outfits and the locations. apricot was my favorite uploader

I rediscovered this song a while back. Something about the music video is captivating.

No. 76312

PinocchioP is by far my favorite. Even if I don't like the music I love his lyrics, it's always so…. I don't know how to explain it but it's a mix of nostalgia/sadness/hopefulness ? The lyrics for Zero are probably my fave. I love Mei Mei, Apple dot com, What's inside and Nobody Makes Sense.

Kikuo is really hit or miss but it's always an….. interesting song. Recently I really liked Batsu Neko.

Overall my favorite vocaloid song is Mozaik Role but it's the only Deco27 song I like with Ghost rule. I also usually like CrusherP and her remix of Ghost Rule is superior.

>Fav vocaloid

probably Gumi ? I don't really care to be fair it depends on the tuning. But Rin's voice is sometimes too high / shrilling for me.

Oh and I completely forgot to talk about something that's really interesting in the vocaloid community imo.
On youtube there are some songs you can only find if they are recommended to you since they don't have a title or anything. The songs are in the same style as Koronba (A Sardine Grows from the Soil for example) and I think it's for respect for him that the videos have no name or producer since he completely disappeared a few years ago.
Anyways, I really like this style, the song I linked is a little different because it has a producer with a channel and a twitter account but usually you really can't find who made the song.

I thought his Halloween song was pretty alright. Not something I'd listen to a lot, but it at least had some kind of structure.

Fukase, Len, (specifically his Cold and Serious voicebanks), Meiko, KAITO, Otomachi Una, Vy2, ZOLA project, Piko, Kaai Yuki, vflower and Iroha.

>Any songs you'd like to share?

Covers: Near (Fukase cover), No logic (vflower cover), Satisfaction (Len cover), Higurashi moratorium (Piko cover), Housenka (kaai yuki cover), The snow white princess is (Meiko cover), Melt (Otomachi una cover), Kamisama nejimaki (Piko cover) and 7/8 (Len cover) All of these are from kyaami/cillia since i rlly like the way she tunes. I also like Donut hole (Kyo from zola project cover), Doll and left eye (Fukase cover) and Carnival (Vy2 cover). These ones are from MioDioDaVinci, I also like his tuning. I'm a sucker for covers since some of them sound better than the original.

Original songs:
Soushuu renbo, Fight for pride, I hate sailor uniforms, Your highness my princess, Inochi bakkari, Cherry Blossoms Falling (VanaN'Ice), Q-kyoku theory of evolution, Wifi bosou boy, ALICE, Dancer in the dark, lili., Crescent Moon, Melody Line, and a classic, Butterfly on your right shoulder.

What I really like about Vocaloid songs is once you search deep enough, There are a lots to listen to that you may adore. It started from watching their concerts cause I found them weird, then listening to the popular and earwormy kawaii~ songs and then searching about different Vocaloids because I was that obsessed. Good times. I guess I reaped the fruits of my labor because I found a lot of favorite songs lmao.

Too bad that all I see from the fandom nowadays are just cringy tumblrinas who screech how vflower is trans!!! or any other vocaloid is "insert gender role here" smh

Anyway, the most popular vocaloid right now other than Miku is vFlower by a long shot. She has seen abrupt but strong popularity within the last couple of years, with maybe even a majority of the biggest hits being songs that use her. This song is one example– it's a serious earworm.

Have any of you been playing the new Miku (and friends) mobile rhythm game? I’ve been having fun with it so far. I wasn’t expecting to care about the new original characters, but a lot of them are really cute! It’s also interesting to have an idol game with a mixed gender cast.

The game is super easy to navigate without knowing Japanese. Personally I can read a little, but it’s not really necessary besides the stories. Since the eng fanbase is very active, all stories are translated before long anyway.
The card art is really cute. The MVs feel a little lacking compared to similar games so far, but I think they’ll improve over time

No. 115395

I'm playing it, anon!! Very casually though. Is it my impression or is it a bit easy?? Like, I feel like it's really hard to get perfect combos in the game but that the game is also somehow more forgiving than other games like it.
Its really pretty and runs like butter on my phone too, I'm constantly amazed with how fast it runs for a game that seems to be quite heavy. I also really like that they put in 'cover' songs too.

Right? So many of the vocaloid fanbase, especially Mitchie M fans, are quite young. Its not hard to imagine a child listening to that song and then wanting to buy things. It's kind of worrying.

Vocaloid fans were always autistic but the type of autism they have now is different. Before vocafags were rabid character/shipperfags who hated vocaloids solely based off their fanmade personalities. Kaimikufags were notorious for this. They were all like
Or they were 12 year old len fangirls who wrote horny posts like

Now the vocaloid fanbase is made up of troons who worship fukase and v flower (then again there's a lot of troons in different fanbases). They're less focused on characters and more on producers which is a double edged sword since rabid characterfags aren't really a thing anymore but producer wank is on a whole nother level. Len fangirls still exist but now they think he's non binary and ship him with oliver because kailen is pedophilic. Rinlen is also a big nono since that's incest even though they're canonically not siblings.

Overall the fanbase has dwindled somewhat but I suspect that's because a lot of them jumped ship to kpop.

Oh god, you are so right!! I remember being a GumixLen secret shipper (I self-inserted as Gumi) and feeling kind of ashamed because everyone shipped him with Rin and bashed fans who didn't. When songs paired him with other Vocaloid girls, people didn't like it at all and even ignored the songs completely. Man…


kek anon. I wish this was an exaggeration but it really was like that. Ah, I feel nostalgic.

Fans were more invested in the characters than in the producers, but they also payed a lot of attention to the songs and liked to create theories about them. I remember going to the wikis to read the lyric's interpretation and being super grossed out by some of them.
I think this generation of fans peaked when KagePro released its "final" song. I still listen to Vocaloid songs, old and new, but I think most of us grew up and lost interest over time. K-pop/J-pop and Vocaloid fandoms were always related, I remember I got introduced to Miss A and 2NE1 in a Vocaloid forum.

Good taste anon. I also really liked that ship back then. MikuxLen was another ship I remember being popular as well.

And yes I totally forgot about song theories too. I remember people anxiously waiting for the final part of synchronicity and crying when everyone died at the end. Seven deadly sins was a another big song series and iirc it's going on even to this day.
I also got exposed to kpop with vocaloid. It was around the time 2nd gen groups were still active. There were a lot of MMD dance videos to gee and bo beep and I started discovering more songs on my own. You're probably right about a lot of us outgrowing vocaloid once we got older though. The older gen fans are now in their 20s and 30s so it makes sense that we're not really into vocaloid like that anymore.

Most of my headcanons are about their personalities, like how Gumi is your average Genki girl, or Meiko being the mom friend (and her not being an alcoholic).

Never liked his music. I’m not a fan of producers who mix their Vocaloids that way, they don’t sound remotely natural. It’s like they wanted the breathiest Billie Eilish tone yet did zero work to make it less choppy. Some engine noise can sound charming but this is so…whatever. These lyrics kind of suck by the way, it’s so boring hearing yet another Japanese person belt ‘I WANNA DIE I LIVE IN A SOCIETY’ literally with awkward clinical English subtitles.

Hyper realistically tuned vocaloid is a fun novelty but if you're looking for natural vocals, just listen to human vocalists. Vocaloids are artificial and they sound like it, better to roll with it then try to avoid the unavoidable imo.

I base their headcanon "personalities" from their appearances and vibe. Miku's the typical popular girl. Len is the arrogant 14 year old who has a lot of fangirls. Rin is cute but sassy and fierce. Luka is sexy, elegant and intelligent. Meiko is sexy, witty and badass. And Kaito is her submissive, silly and very sweet boyfriend. Lastly Kaito, Meiko and Luka are the adult figures so they care for everyone in the group.

But that's the thing. I actually like UTAU (CV ones are charming af) more than Vocaloid. I'm not looking for realism, I think they try to fight the engine too hard.

iyowa is a moid, btw. I was hoping it might be a woman from the general vibe but nope. That's actually why I stopped listening to vocaloid music around last year. I realized "where are all the women in this scene?" and there aren't really any, save a few examples. not to sound like a conspiracy theorist but the one "woman" producer ppl point to (OSTER project) is almost certainlyt a troon. I saw an IRL panel with them on it, they were decked out in lolita gear, tall, wide shouldered, and had a deep voice. Not to mention their original -P name was literally "futanari(dickgirl)-P" additionally, if you browse japanese imageboards, you can see most people there think he's a tranny too (example: https://anago.5ch.net/test/read.cgi/streaming/1339869329).

Just search for Kaito-focused producers, there's a 90% chance they are women because he's such good husbando material.
I also highly doubt Oster is a tranny (just chubby lmao), judging from more normie pictures, from her music and from the bits of personal info she tends to tweet about.
Also kek at that 5ch link, that reminds me too much of 4chan moids who think everything and everyone is a tranny while they themselves are full of trannies. Scrotedom is universal.

No. 186023

I usually roll my eyes at tranny tinfoiling but oster is def a man. So he went by futanari-p until all the way up until he announced he was "actually a woman"? very likely story. Voca producers don't have to show themselves, especially when starting out, so "she" could have easily just larped as a normal dude in the beginning, no problem. What motivation would a woman have for crafting a persona around being a "dickgirl"? Also, in japan, lolita trannies are a very common type of tranny (so common it's even a trope), and oster is always seen in layers of lolita clothing, so…

anyway, here's a song by an actual woman

I always liked Meiko and thought she was underrated. I went on a long hiatus and discovered her cover of Snow-White Princess last year. I'm 10000% convinced she can be at least as mainstream as Rin and Len, especially since the Vocaloid fanbase is getting older and more attracted to more mature characters. Her older sister/cool aunt vibes are unmatched.
I also like Gumi and get worried that I'm relating to her songs more now than when I was a little teen. The themes of identity, existentialism, and giving way too much… girl get help.

Mine has to be Yuzuki Yukari, while I don't like most of her originals, her voice is very sweet and not very typical for the kind of voice they go for. Otherwise, I of course enjoy listening to Miku, as she has more originals that I like and the cutesy schtick for vocaloids started from her.

There were rumors that the reason goodsmile company picks such simple designs because they know they'll have to make a figure for it (they always make the snow miku design of the year into a figure, for those who don't know).

Yeah she got a ton of shit recently at Twitter for saying she was against obvious predators getting inside women's bathrooms. First the western tranny scum took advantage of the language barrier since she was just tweeting about it to her Japanese followers to say she was being "homophobic", she had to make a long post in English trying to explain she was worried about women's safety and ofc these twats jumped at her throat calling her a homophobic terf and had to delete her post.

I'm lazy to look for the screenshots but if you dig a little you'll probably find some of it easily, as it was pretty decent drama. Honestly I wouldn't be surprised if the Japanese fanbase at this point just doesn't wanna have anything to do with this bunch of overdramatic sociopath wokies the western fanbase is made of. They are not as exposed to this garbage as we are and I know I would be becoming really westernphobic in their place if every little contact I have with English speakers turns out like this lmao.

I haven't listened to voca music (outside of games) in almost a decade but I really want to get back into it, most stuff just isn't in the style that I like.

I hate when certain producers switch exclusively to singing, and they're bad at singing/their voice doesn't fit the songs they make.

This sucks i bought tickets for eu tour before the na tour started. Adds for the eu tour showed the glass hologram not an led screen. I'm going to see if i can refund the tickets. So sad that i missed my chance on actually seeing a cool vocaloid concert with hologram

Is it the new standard everywhere? Seems dumb to not appeal to tradition after the long break in worldwide shows.
