    What is everyone’s favorite detail in a vocaloid design? Mine is Luka v4x’s belt being a musical score and also fashion

    Sonika's fashion in general (especially her Taiwanese's star earrings and her original 3D art's hairstyle), galaco's triangle and iconic hair (without forgetting her tiny marks), Airi's jacket, Lily's Cd too fascinates me... Maybe because I felt like it was both original as of an accessory on a fashion outfit and because it made so much sense for a musioc-driven program ; then Sweet ann's stitches, IA's asymetrical boots, Luka V2's cabochon jewel, The Kotonoha Sisters' hair jewelry, Lapis' gemstone, TONIO's bowtie in a few fanarts of him I used to see, Gackpoid's electronic samurai attire as well as the rest of his outfit, especially his sleeves, Bruno's hat and Clara's heart-shaped glasses -I'm a sucker for heart-shaped glasses it never gets old- Rin's bow, YANHE's garterbelt because for some unknow reasons it minded me to mew mews' and because the raspberry colour constrast so much with her main white/cyan theme, Qingxian's flower, SeeU's cat ears-shaped speakers, Uni's transluscent pink part of her top, Tsuzumi's bow, Sasara original's shoes (they look so cute)

    I don't know if it's a "favorite," but it amuses me that Kagamine Rin has the fortissimo symbol on the top of her shirt. It's basically saying she's "very loud."

    @MillyAqualine yes to all of that so much yes. The one thing missing from Taiwanese Sweet Ann was the stitches ;-;

    @Vector she loud and proud it’s who she is lol

    I see all of these and raise Lumi’s everything but if I have to pick one it goes to her legs being inside the jellyfish
    I wish I had a harp with an electronic pick up installed to do proper harp covers of vocaloid songs have a rendition of shujou rei in the works

    Same, I had the idea a few months ago because it pains me people still consider harp as "that one classical instrument that is in the background" and think it is limited only to traditional Celtic songs and classical while this instrument can work for all genres

    Yes!!!! Like it is amazing for moody songs like hirari hirari but if you know what you are doing it can pull off any genre ;-; and sound gorgeous while doing it
    Can someone explain to me why the amount of underage sex scenes are so high in Netflix originals like why?????????
    MillyAqualine
    MillyAqualine
    Because Netflix loves to screw every kids' show making it an unecessarily gruesome spin-off version of it for the sake of views and money, and use as gruesome content for their originals too
    The topic about fee got me curious about the designs of vocaloids I enjoy and how they appeal to people. Kokone is one of my favorites and I think she has an unproblematic design??? Tone Rion I know is based on moe but idk if moe is bad?

    Let's say with moe there are mainly two roads : what could be the original moe as "being the cutie pie that you want to protect from the baddies because she's like your little sister or one of your close friends" and then the lolicon one.... Sadly some people seem to favour the second

    I don’t see anything fetishy about rions redesign but unfortunately the internet is well the internet I can see a uh some points in the original design e.e why fetishize kids :(

    Unfortunately pretty much every "moe" design trope has some extremely unsavory origins, to put it very mildly. That's not to say that you, or anyone else for that matter, is necessarily weird for enjoying characters/designs that employ those tropes, or even that everyone who uses them in their own designs is doing so maliciously. I think they've become so normalized and distanced from their origins that the vast majority of people are into it for perfectly wholesome reasons. It's kinda like how white gloves on cartoon characters was originally based on blackface costumes, but I wouldn't call Mario, the Animaniacs, Spinel, Sonic, etc. racist just for having them because they've honestly long grown past that association.

    All that being said though... there are a lot of moe character designs that are distinctly un-wholesome in their intentions, and I'm sorry to say that V3 Tone Rion is one of them. Her character designer, Watanabe Akio, has a Pixiv dictionary entry that flat out says he's most notable for drawing "loli characters", and with Rion herself I can count like, six tropes at least that I'd consider red flags. Maybe not by themselves, but all together in one character, and by that artist especially? Pretty skeevy. I think the little bandaid on the knee is probably the worst, because it's so distinctly childish. Luckily her V4 design is a big improvement in that regard, and Kokone also doesn't set off any big warning signs to me.
    Furbies are back in vogue

    They have been for quite some time. There was a very small community of Furby fans and Furby old guard on tumblr, which was a community sadly pretty much entirely dismantled after its sudden mega-spike in popularity. The furby fad on Tumblr also gave way to a small community of other robot enthusiasts on tumblr, but it had the same effect, and that community also kind of died. The one good thing is that they got a positive spotlight nobody could have predicted.
    Who here remembers the ages of the gumi gang. By which I mean the constant dismissal of Kokone and Galaco because they had a similar voice type to Gumi. I sure do >_> now I picture them bonded for life riding unicycles in leather jackets.
    As an individual who keeps various invertebrates as my babies including various isopods I would like to one day have a rubber ducky isopod colony but they are so mind bogglingly expensive I don't know if I could ever justify it :(
    I wasted my v6 demo lol so quick question does v6 allow you to use other files than Vsqx? Like ust and such ? Might impact my decision on upgrading or not
    There is just something so charming about old horror movies tbh watching the original Carnival of Souls right now and it’s very enjoyable
