Yeah, it’s time for another week of Vocaloid videos and music, and your host is DT here as always.

This week we have news from Mikatan that the Vocaloid Nendoroid Puchi 01 series, which has been announced during the Tokyo Anime Fair earlier this year, will finally be up for reservations in Japan in the next few days. So hopefully this would mean that online sites (and local shops as well) may be taking pre-orders for the figures very soon, can’t wait to preorder mine and get them eventually. ^_^

And back to the music introductions for this week, just read on for more~ :) (more…)

Yeah, this Vocaloid blog has gotten a bit more active in terms of viewership ever since it reached the last milestone of 5,000 views back at the start of July, and I am glad to say that the blog has reached another new milestone of 10,000 views and this was done in the early morning on August 28th 2009, which is about half a year ago since I set up this blog.

So once again, thanks so much for your support all this while. :D Hopefully I will still continue to post new and interesting Vocaloid news as long as I am able to, even if I may just return back to only posting on this blog as I keep my options open.

Anyway thanks for reading this as well, more Vocaloid news will be coming up so do stay updated as always. ^_^

Weekly Vocaloid Videos And Music – 25

AHHH~ Now this is nothing short of epic cuteness! =w= (Image source: ゆう)

Yeah, I apologize for my epic lateness in posting this. Basically I have been away for the past couple of days attending to personal stuff and hence I didn’t have time to access the internet. ^ ^;;

Anyway now that we know there will be an Black★Rock Shooter anime coming up in Spring 2010 what could possibly be better? Though it would be hard to imagine that initially an original artwork from huke chosen by songwriter ryo for a Vocaloid music video would gain such popularity from the general Vocaloid community that not only Good Smile Company decided to make two PVC figures of Black★Rock Shooter in which one of them will be released soon but also, the anime as I have mentioned above. ^ ^ Can’t wait to see the anime though, hope it will be good though. =D

And enough rumbling from me, and onto this post’s topic~! (more…)

Over the last week we had quite a number of nice Vocaloid songs which made it into the latest Weekly Vocaloid Ranking as well a particular song which sort of “cheated” its way to last week’s 1st position, though practically everyone knows that it’s probably a gag. =P

Anyway just read on for more about this week’s Vocaloid music then~ (more…)
