Some recent stuff, some "old" stuff, and some birthday stuff for Meiko. (I was actually going to do this a Meiko-only update, but then I remembered I had a backlog of other stuff to post, and... yeaaah.)



I was absolutely sick of seeing this song on the ranking until A CERTAIN SOMEONE in chan made me pay attention to the lyrics and now I completely love it. ._. ANYWAY, if you click on anything in this post, make it this video because holy crap Vivienne. At first it takes you a couple of seconds to realize it's her and not Len singing and once the song gets going it's really hard to do anything but go *___* at it. Pitch/emotion/everything is perfect and I could loop it for hours without getting tired.



SHIGOTOSHITE-P FUCK YEAH. \o/ A lovely, melancholy song about a girl waiting for someone by the sea. Meiko's tuning is fantastic, as always, and the piano line (HEY STEL HEY) is beautiful. If this song doesn't get you even a little bit ;_; you have no heart.

Wheee songs. )

Yeah, I just don't know what half the entries this week are on. To make up for it, there sure are a lot of them, though. Oh yeah, since it's come up - these aren't necessarily completely new songs, they're just whatever Nicovideo's had it's eye on recently. So there y'go. Again, if a video's tagged MMD, then it features a silly singing robots video using MikuMikuDance, the animation package. If it's marked Typographic, then it's got floating text crap by that one guy I'm getting just a little bit tired of.

In other news we are pretty much doomed; some horrible people who will go unnamed may have started something terrifying. It is left as an exercise to the reader to figure out who might be who.

... I wonder if I should add them as maintainers?

You lucky people get two songs above the cut because there's so damn many this week. We stride the line solidly between a collection of complete what-the-hell, and a massive amount of solid, awesome tracks. In short, Japan loves us. As ever, corrections to my translations (especially fandubber names, I am terrible at learning them) are welcomed.

(The Crow Who Could Not Fly And The Stray Dog -Special Edition-, Miku + Haku + Len + Rin + Luka, THRASH METAAAAAAAAAL, MMD)
This is the first of two - yes, two - videos featuring practically the entire group of vocaloids (Gumi and Gakupo clearly don't count, and Kaito's busy doing his own emo videos) rocking out with instruments via MMD Band Edition to a pair of surprisingly good tracks. If nothing else, watch it for the amazing video.


(Dischotheque, Miku, Pop/Jazz)
An astounding video, made up of SHAFT-style papercraft animations and strange cuts of material, encompasses this smooth track with fantastic singing robotting. Discotheque clearly isn't it's real name, but without understanding wtf that katakana is on, it stays.

The best of the rest. )

Also, since we never explicitly mentioned: yes, posting is absolutely public. Go for it.

Hello, new people! Somehow we have gained about six people since I last checked, about four of which are completely new to me and didn't even need to be brutally coerced into joining. The fact that people are actively of their own free will adding themselves to our ranting descent into a love/hate relationship with moe moe singing robots both gives me solace that we are not alone and also terrifies me.

This is, by the way, still not a post about Gumi. SUCK IT, MOPTOP.


(Puzzle, Miku, Rock/Pop)
One of the latest Big Sensation tracks that's probably going to get covered by everyone and their dogs. It's worth it, though, a catchy tune with some great instrumentation and a cool video.

And lo, with Miku's Birthday comes a whole slew of songs. MMD post still on hold because JESUS CHRIST, MUSIC. )

AS A BONUS, since I should probably start talking about MMD at some point, here it is. The video that started this whole mess. The video that cemented the moeblob. The genesis of our dramatic, complete and total fail.

Miku, in MikuMikuDance, doing a step-perfect rendition of Jamiroquai's Virtual Insanity. Complete with hat. Be sure to stick around for the close-up.

Huke’s popular character Black Rock Shooter, a reimagined Hatsune Miku with guns, has been announced as receiving a music video anime by Haruhi director Yamakan’s Ordet production studio; however, it now transpires that this is actually a pilot for a full anime adaptation.


My next post was going to be all about the wonders of MikuMikuDance - the animation program primarily involving Stupid Singing Robots that Japanese people use to make a collection of batshitinsane videos. However, right as I was planning to do this some kind of MMD competition dropped and there's suddenly a ton of both awesome MMD song videos and awesome MMD ... moron singing robots videos. So I'm going to split them - if a song is tagged MMD in this post then you should watch it for the video at least, as some of the work that people put into their animations is absolutely astonishing. More information on the whole thing (together with non-song, older or plain hilarious videos) next update.

Floor's slacking on her linking of awesome fandubs.

(Out of Lies, Luka, Pop/Two-Step/Not Sure)
This has lovely pianos, especially in the second half of the song.

(Ignition, Luka, Jazz/Two-Step)
From the same guys who did Just Be Friends.

【ニコニコ動画】【第3回MMD杯本選】 SET FREE 【PV】
(Set Free, Miku/EVERYONE, Pop, MMD)
Watch it for the amazing MMD video involving the entire damn cast, gratuitous twins angst, and piping.

(The Disappearance of Hatsune Miku, Miku, Bluuuuh what the hell do you categorise this song as? ANGST TECHNO?, MMD)
Yes, you've heard this before. But have you seen Miku doing it in sign language at the same speed?

【ニコニコ動画】【鏡音リン・レン】 Never 【オリジナル曲】
(Never, Rin/Len, Funk)
What's with all the random smooth funk synth stuff recently? Boggling.

(Just Be Friends SUPER J-RAP VERSION, Fandub (Rapbit), Pop with hilarious J-Rap)
Included mostly because it makes me giggle, but they are good singers.

(Strabo Nights (M-Set Performance), Miku, Dance, MMD)
Catchy Perfume-esque dance track from Project DIVA re-choreographed in ridiculous detail.

【ニコニコ動画】【初音ミク】new sound【オリジナル曲】
(New Sound, Miku, Dance/Very Nearly A Chiptune; think Capsule)
Basically just delightful. Quite old, but enjoying a resurgence.

(ACUTE, Kaito/Luka/Miku, Gothy Pop...?)
Kaito's a scheming bastard, Miku's an infatuated gothloli, Luka is a blushy maiden. They fight crime An amazing video and YANDELOIDS ensue.

【ニコニコ動画】【初音ミク】wktk Hello【オリジナル】
(wktk Hello!, Miku, Candy Pop)
Who am I kidding, this one's just in here to make Floor's teeth hurt. Okay, it's also in there for brilliant piano-work, which gets anything a pass.

(Delete... Enter, Miku, Thrash Emo Metal)
This is Disappearance's angrier, misunderstood twin whose room is painted black with skulls as opposed to Disappearance's unhappy grey.
