I didn't care too much about Avanna's male counterpart before but if that was almost his design then now I'm kind of disappointed he's on a hiatus lol, since I like to see Vocaloids that don't always look happy-go-lucky in colors and such, I would really like Darius' design among Vocaloids had he been a thing. He also seems to almost look opposite from Avanna. For example, she's smiling and is wearing brighter colors while Darius has a more neutral expression and is dressed in an overall darker look. Don't know if that was on purpose or if I'm just imagining it but still, he looks neat and it's too bad he'll probably never leave the "on hiatus" status.

Sorry for interrupting, but I hope you are interested in this article.

cutIMG_20180914_183331.jpg This performance will be the first costarring of Hatsune Miku and Kizuna Ai, but their fans in Japan don't seem so excited.

Anyway, I will go to the show tomorrow night.

I came back from the theater.

SETLIST

I predicted that Hatsune Miku was a cameo or a walkon, but actually she appeared in more than half of the scenes. She was singing, dancing, talking or rapping while she was on the stage.
However, cluttered elements were stuffed up in this show too much to call it a vocaloid jukebox musical.
I did not enjoy it as a completed work. In spite of that, luxurious kimonos, virtual actors and real performer duets, a variety of dances, stage equipment, plays using Hanamichi, and waves of our green lights, all entertained me well.

Thank you.

Miku got a quick little mention in this Entertainment Weekly article

Recently, Amuro has shifted her sound into EDM territory, working with SOPHIE and Zedd on club bangers like “Heaven” and “B Who I Want 2 B” — which also features Hatsune Miku, the pop star persona created in a vocal synthesizer app. In other words, the song includes guest vocals from a computer program (one that also opened for Lady Gaga on her ArtRave: The Artpop Ball in 2014).

Okay, there's something about the way UTAU synthesizes voices that just bothers me. I can't figure out what it is though? It's like, every sound start-stops, the transitions aren't natural. Unless every UTAU but no Vocaloid somehow has this, it has to be the engine. I'm just hoping someone can help me put it into words I guess?

Are you talking about the voicebank type?(like cv or vcv or cvvc) I've found that overall if voicebanks aren't recorded well and/or they aren't configured properly they can sound choppy. (especially cvvc)

Miku is now showing up in japanese history textbooks みんなは知ってた!?初音ミクが日本史の教科書に登場&定番アイテム"ネギ"のルーツって?

Oh, I almost missed this on reddit. The dev behind the MMD photo app Mikuture said that a new version is in the works and the old version will be pulled from app stores
Miku is really making it far, getting in textbooks is a big accomplishment! I’m really happy seeing that.
Same! I'd love to get a look at that textbook. The context in which the little blurb appears would probably be just/almost as interesting as the blurb itself.

Congrats on literally making it into the history books, Miku! :)

Adding to Miku in textbooks, I noticed in the replies of Miku in the history textbook, she is alwo in a high school English textbook! Miku is helping spread language tol, it seems.

EDIT: As I keep looking through the replies, there is a lot more! Miku is a lot more common in textbooks than I thought. Many people are sharing images of their textbooks.
