I guess once you enter this web, some of you who didn’t know much or just started to know about Vocaloid. ｢(ﾟﾍﾟ) Vocaloid(ボーカロイド) is a singing synthesizer(its a software yes :D) which can create epic melody of voices from a variety of virtual singers including Hatsune Miku(初音ミク), Megurine Luka(巡音ルカ), Gumi(グミ) and so much more! With a piano roll type input of melody and lyrics, voices will ring throughout your speaker. (・ω・ ) ~♪~ This amazing program has been developed by Yamaha Corporation.

There’s these facts about Vocaloid, which is that some people thinks Vocaloid isn’t a real song just because it has virtual voice in it. Some people categorized Vocaloid music as Otaku Music(Lol).

Hear Vocaloid? There are so many reasons for me to say it, but I’ll say this, the voice..its Unique and Epic!ヽ( ´ー`)ノ Not something we always hear from any other songs and not only the voice is cute and soothing. One of the most important part is the music! Vocaloid artists are one who had potential in computerizing and guess what, the songs, music and lyrics were mostly part of their thought within. With their feeling pouring out when making the melody of voices, they tend to master the music with the best flow to align with the voice. So most of the vocaloid songs had very nice music, may it be dupstep or orchestral.

I’m going to tell my adventure of encountering Vocaloid（￣ー￣）. In general, not much people knew Vocaloid(At least in where I live). Whenever some people past through a poster of Hatsune Miku(初音ミク) or some other place in a game station or somewhere that has comic books sold, they will only think of “ONE” thing, thats gonna be :”Owh, its just another anime movie thats popular but never once seen its movie or heard of her sound, owh well~” ==(I’m one of them) I don’t know, non of my friends or relative ever bother about Vocaloids.(including me…I guess)
And so! There this one day, after few years of looking at that green haired girl with twin tails acting cute, I got HOT, and finally search what in the world is this all about. With no knowledge of that girl at all, I took the courage to search the web, typing the epic word : ” 初音 ” (We Chinese usually only used 初音 which read as Chū Yīn). And thats a big bomb in my life knowing the world of music with the strangest sound is such a wide popular topic among so many countries! When im searching youtube, the 1st song I heard is “Melt” by Supercell ft.初音ミク. I was like OMG!!! Who the hec- would even wants to hea-…!!! BUT! I want to know why. Everytime I hear, I scratch my head with confuse while the sound of Vocaloid keeps ringing beside my ears. And in the end, I still couldn’t accept how would this even be popular. And I try to hear it again and again, every day passes and somehow my rating for Vocaloid had been rated from “WTH” to “its ok, I guess” . I try to hear it because I want to know why people hears them. And as times goes by, who would have thought I’m in love with this amazing melody and had 30 plus songs. I was like..Σ(￣ロ￣lll)…(I had ton of vocaloid songs now >:D) I’m pretty sure you guys will love them! Maybe it takes time for us to love them, but I’m sure of one thing, without And theres how my story goes.
