  • BiliBili has their 4th quarter earnings call tonight (which is in english because it's exchanged on Nasdaq). I guess i'm so desperate for v5 bank news I might consider listening in or finding the transcript later.

    Their 3rd quarter call from back in november talked a bit about them buying a majority stake in VSinger
    Bilibili is now one of the largest producer and broadcaster of documentary in China. Additional content such as our first half produced show variety show Star Men 2 is also resonating well with many users. Being a community for young generation enable us to learn and identify what’s trending for young minds including rich IT carries high potential and which entertainment forms will be the new frontier.

    With our investment in these we added considerable new content in virtual idol including China’s most popular virtual idol Luo Tianyi and we started to explore Virtual Youtuber or Vtuber. We believe this initiative will further enhance our extensive portfolio of industry leading license and the PUGV material.

    No new news from the earnings call really. Only a brief mention of Tianyi and how Vtubers are starting to get popular on the site Bilibili Inc. (BILI) Q4 2018 Earnings Conference Call Transcript -- The Motley Fool
    And for the live broadcasting, currently the gross profit is not that high, but actually if you count the -- our subscription membership revenues, the overall margin is still reasonable. So, we will not like to calculate gross profit margin in like just look at one quarter or two quarters numbers. We will keep invest in our Comic business, so that will -- well will incur more content cost for our Comics and we will also invest in different areas like virtual idol, Luo Tianyi, that will help us to grow our communities.
    (Foreign Language) Okay. So first of all, in the core ACG content, target users, they themselves are growing bigger and bigger. That includes, for example, for the domestic animations, we have more and more viewers, who will -- who are interested in domestic animations and more and more users are starting to accept and grow fond of VTubers. And e-sports, nevertheless to say has become countrywide sensation.
    Why does Nico's design from the new Dead Or Alive game remind me of a wide variety of utau & vocaloid designs? (not saying it's a bad design btw)

    Definitely her jacket and the exposed shoulders seem futuristic/idol. Her outfit looks similar to Mirai Komachi or Annon and Kannon. I think the outfit looks more idol-ish than scientist.

    Komachi? Yes. Mixed in with a bit of Rin and Aiko Kikyuune
    The VSinger metrocards reminded me of something I was thinking about. It was about how easy & cheap it is for people in Japan & China to get out to vocaloid concerts because of all the high speed rail. It's more difficult for people in the US because of all the travel costs.

    I mean look at how far CFM had to travel with last year's MikuExpo shows in the US



    Made that a while back ago in an attempt to guess at then not yet announced show locations

    And also somewhat importantly, look how far people in certain states (say anything north of Kansas) have to travel.

    I couldn't go to Miku Expo mostly cuz it was just too far away.
    Yamaha had 6 months to get a 2nd third party bank for v5. SIX MONTHS! I can understand a delay for eng & chn banks technical reasons... but not for jpn banks. No updated jpn banks. No brand new jpn banks outside of Sora. WTF Yamaha?

    I honestly also wouldn't be surprised if people aren't really happy with the removal of XSY from V5, and that's part of why people don't want to release updates right now. To me, Sora's voicebanks literally seem to me like they were originally created with XSY in mind. On top of that, XSY seemed like a pretty important feature to me, and I was actually kind of angry when I found out it was removed.

    The JP fandom wasn't too fond of XSY, supposedly.
    It could be very broken.

    It could also be improved upon in V5 instead of just completely ripped out, especially because there are people who do like using it anyways. And in most cases you're not even forced to use it if you don't want to, with the only exception being ARSLOID.
    So that's why Tomo from AHS is heading over to NAMM (that's voice modulation and NOT synthesis btw)

    RC Voice has been around for a few months but they're moving from their apps to full function programs for windows/mac that can be used in a daw. Still hoping that Tomo is there for vocaloid stuff too

    I realized today that Haruno Sora is turning 6 months old this saturday. The even more shocking thing? Realizing the last v5 bank was released 6 months ago. I really hope Yamaha is gonna give us news at NAMM this week.
    Huh. Bandai Namco have noticed the western vocaloid community's reaction to Komachi... and how few loids that have come out here.
    1st Place: 'We want to have alot of concerts overseas'

    Also 1st Place: Forgets to mention on the socials that concert tickets for one of the biggest US cities is on sale.

    Also 1st Place: Throws the concert at one of the most controversial cons who's CEO is known to have gone WAY over the line with goth loli exhibitors

    Man, what the heck is going on at that company?
    I guess I was really tired this morning and completely messed up my post. At least I made the proper edits hahaha

    I do stuff like that, too. But I learned to use the Preview feature before posting anything and also get my twin to proofread it. OTL Sometimes I wonder if I even know English anymore, or how to paste the correct links, or space out the text out properly so it's not one giant wall...
