Welcome to Week 21st of the Weekly Vocaloid music post, I am your host DT as always. This week we had some sneak preview of the upcoming 1/8 scale Black Rock Shooter PVC figure by Good Smile Company which will be released next month, can’t wait to get mine when it eventually arrives over here in Singapore. ^ ^

Regarding the game Project DIVA I have been playing it since officially obtaining the game (finally!) together with the nendoroid petit on Monday and I would say I really enjoyed it very much with regards to the game play, couldn’t really complain about it much. =D Though if I were to point something out I do wish that the other Vocaloid (especially Rin and Len =P ) could play a bigger part in the game but I guess it’s not called “Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA-” for nothing. xP

Anyway I will be introducing some of the songs in Project DIVA since there are some songs which I really enjoyed but didn’t mentioned it on the blog before, so just continue reading for this week’s Vocaloid music introductions then~ (more…)

Ah, welcome to Week 20 of the Weekly Vocaloid music segment. This week we had news of the new English Vocaloid2 software Sonika released by Zero-G Limited and so far her voice seems promising for a English Vocaloid, though I do think she has a slight resemblance to Hatsune Miku in a sense. (Hopefully I am not the only one thinking about that though)

And in other news, my copy of the Hatsune Miku -Project DIVA- together with the Nendoroid petit has finally arrived! =D Though it’s hardly fun when you have to wait for half a month after the game is released. xP But at least I can get to enjoy the game now and hopefully I can post some gameplay screenshots soon then.

Anyway let’s get on with this week’s Vocaloid music then, shall we? (more…)

Well, I think some of you may already have an account on Pixiv, but just in case there are some of you who don’t, hopefully you will find this guide to registering for an account on Pixiv useful. :)

Why Pixiv? You may ask. Well that’s because Pixiv is one of the sites along with Piapro where you will find awesome Vocaloid fanarts and images created by fans and artists alike. And it’s also where I got the images from for the starting image of most of my posts here.

Just read on for more information about Pixiv registration~ (more…)

Welcome to another week of Vocaloid music introductions as always, and I am your host DT. This week we had more preview images of the upcoming Hatsune Miku CM Version PVC figure and Live Stage Version figma as well as the arrival of the Kagamine Rin and Len PVC figure here in Singapore, which I gladly add them into my Vocaloid figures collection. ^ ^

And this week’s Vocaloid music post may appear a bit late since I have been attending the Cosfest event which takes place here on Saturday and Sunday, though I would say I am there mostly to observe the Vocaloid cosplays other than the cosplay competitions (seen a handful of them actually, and even a Love Is War/Koisen Miku cosplay).

Anyway that’s about it from me, let’s get back to this week’s post then~ (more…)

Well, it’s been slightly less than 4 months since I started on this Vocaloid blog, in which I did out of pure interest as a Vocaloid fan initially and the blog serves to help me remember about the latest Vocaloid news at the same time.

It may not be much but I am glad to say that this blog has finally reached its 5,000th view earlier last weekend. :D I didn’t really bother with letting people know about this blog as I am still trying to improve my blogging skills on it. ^ ^;; But I was surprised when I was invited by the owner of Vocaloidism to blog about Vocaloid news on his site in late March, certainly have learnt more about blogging as well as knowing more Vocaloid news sources since then. :)

But more importantly I want to say a Thanks to all who has visited this Vocaloid blog, by chance or not, especially those who have commented as well. It does mean something to me and I hope this small blog will continue to go on so long as Vocaloid’s around, so do continue to look forward to this blog as I will hopefully be bringing you the latest and interesting Vocaloid news happening in the Vocaloid universe. :D

Thanks again~

Welcome to Week 18 of the Weekly Vocaloid Music segment, as usual I am your host DT. Last week we had news from Good Smile Company that they are going to release a 1/7 scale figure of Hatsune Miku and this time round, there’s a more solid feeling to our leek-loving virtual idol (more info on this figure very soon).

Also, something that I have been waiting for quite a few months has finally arrived here, and it’s none other than the 1/8 scale Kagamine Rin and Len PVC figure from GSC, I couldn’t be happier than to add them to my Vocaloid figures collection as a Kagamine fan. :)

Anyway that’s about the news from me, and onto this week’s Vocaloid music then! (more…)
