Welcome to another week of the Weekly Vocaloid Music post. Now, it’s been quiet for last week and there hasn’t been much to post with regards to Vocaloid news, though I did actually went to do a post on English video tutorials about the MikuMikuDance program that has been uploaded onto YouTube lately, will be posting that later when I finished editing it. Also, I will setting this weekly Vocaloid music segment to be on every Saturday or Sunday from next week onwards, seeing as I will be more free on the weekends. And in the future you may notice some of the weekly music posts may be pre-scheduled to be released on the weekends, as I may have done it in advance.

Anyway, let’s get to this week’s Vocaloid music introductions then. ^ ^

Sennen no Dokusouka – Kaito

The story of this song talks about a Vocaloid whose master has long since passed away, but the Vocaloid continues to sing on. The music itself is traditional sounding and this was the first original Kaito song that managed to get the number one spot on the Weekly Vocaloid Rankings. Read on for more Vocaloid music and videos! (more…)

Welcome to Week 7 of the weekly introductions of Vocaloid videos and music, as usual I am your host, DT. This week I will mostly be mentioning Vocaloid songs that have been uploaded onto Nico Nico Douga and YouTube recently, as well as those that have appeared on the Weekly Vocaloid Rankings lately as there have been quite a number of songs that’s worth a mention here due to the songs being simply good in my opinion. So I shall not delay any longer and here we start off with the first song of the introduction.

forbidden canvas (English subbed) – Hatsune Miku

A nice and peaceful Miku song that’s good to listen to, and this song has been kindly translated as well.

This was told to me last night by a friend who’s also interested in Vocaloid, late last month a video documentary featuring the history of the 3D PV models of Hatsune Miku from 2007 to 2009 has been uploaded on YouTube and it was subbed in English for fans’ better understanding. From the initial design of a deformed Miku model to the models used in Caramelldansen, “Kurutto, Odotte, Hatsune Miku”, Melt, to the more recent ones of Miku used in the anger (PV Edit), Project DIVA and Nebula, all this was described in the video and there’s also a corrected version in Japanese which states the appearance of the 3D PV models in chronological order from 2007 to 2009.

If you are a big fan and supporter of Vocaloid or you are eager to know more about Vocaloid then I think this video would be a must watch for you. Here are the videos after the jump. (more…)

Watch as Miku accidentally falls onto Haku just like in the original 3DCG video. XD
