DT’s Figure Photoshoot Session – 1

October 1, 2010

Pink Miku and Miku together

Well, haven’t really been taking photos of the Vocaloid figures I have been collecting since becoming a fan.

A friend asked me earlier last month if I would like to go with him on a figure photoshoot since he has just finished doing his custom Miku nendoroid and I went along, bringing some of my Nendoroids and figmas for the session, which you can see the images after the jump~

Disclaimer: I don’t have those DSLR cameras (mine is just a point-and-shoot camera) so please excuse me if the photo quality isn’t great sometimes. ^ ^;; (more…)

Clarifications On The New Vocaloid From AH-Software (Updated)

August 20, 2010

First of all I would like to apologize on the misinformation brought about by the article earlier regarding the new Vocaloid which will be released by AH-Software and any inconveniences resulting from that. I am sorry about that.

Update on Aug 21st: Further clarifications made, Rio is NOT the official name of the Vocaloid, her name is still not known currently.

An interview was recently carried out with a staff member from AHS in which the following information was corrected and listed as below.

1) The YouTube video showing the new Vocaloid’s song demos over at the Comiket 78 event is only an image, KEI’s kittyler Rio is NOT the official illustration for the new Vocaloid. Kittyler Rio is part of another collaboration known as “Kitty to Issho!”.

2) The new Vocaloid’s official illustration will NOT be done by KEI but by another illustrator who’s not yet announced at the moment.

3) The reason for the collaboration between Sanrio and AHS is simply due to Sanrio having its 50th anniversary and AHS choosing Sanrio in a random selection for the Vocaloid collaboration.

Additional information to add: The new Vocaloid’s public showing is officially set to be in September with the sales of the software starting in October.

Thanks so much to Aster for pointing out on the clarifications.

The original article has since been edited accordingly to reflect the corrections. >____<;;

Welcome to Week 32 of the Weekly Vocaloid Music segment, some of this week’s songs tend to be on the sad side as it reflects my mood for the past week, sudden changes are hard to adapt to in real life, sometimes. :< But all in all they are still good songs and definitely worth you listening to them in my opinion. And also, it’s mainly Miku songs only this week so hopefully you won’t mind with that.

Without any further delays, read on for this week’s songs! (more…)

Weekly Vocaloid Music – 31

Simply can't resist the cuteness of Rin and Len wearing cat ears! >w< (Image source: 紅雪)

Welcome to this week’s Vocaloid music introduction segment, DT here as always. With the official release of the Miku Append earlier on Friday producers have been uploading new Miku songs using the Append and a few of them sound very promising to be up on the next Weekly Vocaloid Ranking.

Truth be told the new Append makes Miku sound much more realistic and natural than before, and we can expect many more Vocaloid songs to be created that way (when would news of Len’s new Append arrive?) and for me to introduce in this weekly segment as well.

Without further ado, let’s move on with the song introductions~ (more…)

Weekly Vocaloid Music – 28

Hello and welcome to this week’s Vocaloid songs introductions, I am your host DT. It’s been six months since I last posted this and it’s a good break for me as I try to concentrate on other Vocaloid news and life in general as well. Now I am feeling much refreshed and ready to introduce more songs. :D

Anyways now that I have restarted on the Weekly segment there will be some changes in place as well, hopefully for the better. Along with the songs I will be listing the credits for it (such as the Producer who created the song and the people who helped to make the PV, if any) as well as where to download the songs, I will be referring to Piapro or any website/homepage pointed out by the producers for the downloads. If not I will simply use the Nicosound link instead.

Without further ado let’s get on with this week’s article then~ (more…)
