IDK how many times I've already apologised for being late OTL. This week's ranking has a ton of new songs worth checking out, some from Ps you might not be familiar with but would love to get acquainted with! Aside from new songs and Ps, this ranking also has a lot of varied genres and Vocaloids you seldom see in the ranking.
↑# - the song moved up from a previous top 30 rank
↓# - song moved down from a previous top 30 rank
↵ - song is a re-entry to the top 30 rankings

Songs are arranged from 1-30.
• Rokuchounen to Ichiya Monogatari [IA]
• by kemu
• Title means "Tales of Six Billion Years and One Night".
• The most popular song even in the utattemita ranking (it has become a bandwagon song) is kemu's latest. It starts off slow and gentle, gradually rising to his typical super fast and convoluted rock song. I find his IA tuning quite interesting. She doesn't sound flat at all, I guess it helps that she's tuned to sing fast and high. This sounds so much alike kemu's other songs, but the fact that IA sounds softer than Miku or Rin adds an adorable touch to this particular song.
• Kimi wa Inase na Girl [IA x miki]
• by Ishiburo
• Title means "You Are a Smart Girl". I never really get hooked to Ishiburo songs but this is just so damn catchy, I can't help it. I guess the jazzy swinging rhythm in exchange for his usual strong rock is the reason. The comic effect in the PV also helps in the charm.
03. 『風待ちハローワールド』 : 初音ミク/add9(ヘリP)
• Kazemachi Hello World [Hatsune Miku]
• by HeliP
• Title means "Hello World, Waiting for the Wind". This is quite interesting because it's a refreshing rock song that reminds me of 80s and 90s music. I think the PV is so fitting because of that XD;. The piano melody is beautiful and the guitars (by Totototom) is snappy and adds a dramatic rising effect on the song. I like the ascending notes towards the chorus and Miku's emotional tuning, too. Overall, I think it's a simple but really wonderful song.
04. 【初音ミクappend】 虹 【オリジナル曲】
• Niji [Hatsune Miku]
• by whoo
• Title means "Rainbow". Whoo is one of my most favorite (lol note on "most"), so I love anything he does. This one is hauntingly slow with reverberating beats infused within a complicated melody against Miku's whispery voice. It's very beautiful. (I'm so biased).
05. 【GUMI 】彩愛クレパス【オリジナルPV】
• Ayana Cray-pas [GUMI]
• by utml
06. サイコロジック／164 feat.GUMI
• Psychologic [GUMI]
• by 164
• This is Hiroshi's typical GUMi rock song with very strong, sharp guitars against high GUMi tuning.
• Stella [Mew]
• by Dixie Flatline
• It's quite rare to hear Mew in the ranking and I'm glad DF decided to use her! She sounds amazingly clear and a bit mature-sounding compared to Miku and other prominent Vocaloids. Very classy.
• Leucocoryne [Hatsune Miku]
• by ryuryu
• I'm a big sucker for ryuryu's songs and their wonderfully nerdy titles, so all I can say about this song is that I love it so much, especially the repetitive drumming beats against Miku's echoing vocals.
• Nihonbashi Koukashita R Keikaku [IA]
• by Jin
10. 【初音ミク】 絆創膏 【オリジナル】
• Bansoukou [Hatsune Miku]
• by MikitoP
• Title means "Band-aid". MikitoP makes another sad, emotional song with echoey Miku against softened guitars. It's very pretty.
11. 【初音ミク】Hello_World 【オリジナル曲】
• Hello World [Hatsune Miku]
• by ZanioP / ZANEEDS
• ZANEEDS' newest is their regular upbeat, danceable pop songs with very catchy lyrics and of course, CHANxCO's adoraaaable art!
• Ikasama⇔Casino [Kagamine Rin/Len]
• by HitoshizukuP and Yama△
• ↓02 Title means "Fake Casino".
• Konoha no Sekai Jijou [Hatsune Miku x IA]
• by Jin
• ↓04 Title means "Konoha's World Circumstances".
14. 【GUMI・鏡音リン】 インビジブル 【オリジナル曲・PV付】
• Invisible [GUMI x Kagamine Rin]
• by kemu
• iMaschine [Hatsune Miku]
• by Syomi
• Miku x iPhone. 'Nuff said.
• Korera 6 Kono Koumoku wo Gomibako ni Idoushimasuka? [Kagamine Rin]
• by Ryouga
• This is part of the so-called "Ishiburo-san, I'm Sorry Series" because the title format and PV is similar to Ishiburo's uploads.
• Instant Heroes [Hatsune Miku Solid]
• by NouP
• I like how this song "swings" both in rhythm and theme. The melody reminds me so much of Nem songs for some reason, but Miku's tuning here is special because it's low, clear, and kind of melancholic, something that is rarely seen in Miku songs.
18. 【蒼姫ラピス】 煙に巻けッ！ 【オリジナル】
• Kemunimaku! [Aoki Lapis]
• by ChieP
• Title means "Smokescreening!" One of those rare Aoki Lapis songs! She sounds adorable, albeit a bit shaky in this traditional music-infused pop song. The PV is also very pretty.
• Senbonzakura [Hatsune Miku]
• by KurousaP
• ↓15 Title means "A Thousand Cherry Blossoms".
• Super Hero [Kagamine Len]
• by Nem
21. 【初音ミク】 Black Board 【オリジナル曲】
• Black Board [Hatsune Miku]
• by papiyon
22. 【GUMIpower】 幸福列車に乗ろう 【オリジナル】
• Koufuku Ressha ni Norou [GUMI power]
• by UtsuP
• Title means "Let's Ride the Train of Joy". The title is just...the opposite of the song, isn't it? XD. It's your typical angry UtsuP rock song, just a bit slower than most of his works.
23. 【GUMI】 イカサマライフゲイム 【オリジナル・PV付】
• Ikasama Life Game [GUMI]
• by kemu
• ↑24 Title means "Fake Life Game".
• 22 Seiki Kara no Hello [IA]
• by RiderP
• Title means "A Hello from the 22nd Century". One of the slower, gentler IA songs that I really like. The beat is simple and IA doesn't have high reaching notes, but it works like a charm. IA, as usual, sounds a bit flat, but I think it's already becoming part of her character ^^;.
25. 【V3Lily】Lying and Lying【デモソング】
• Lying and Lying [Lily V3]
• by PeperonP
26. 【初音ミク】 ムテキノヒーロー 【オリジナルＰＶ】
• Muteki no Hero [Hatsune Miku]
• by KanabunP
• Title means "The Unrivaled Hero". What's with all these hero-themed songs? XD This is a typical rock song with impressive drums and guitars. Miku sounds a bit monotonous, just reciting the lyrics, but she worked well against the strong instruments, imo.
• Rin-chan Nau! [Hatsune Miku x Megurine Luka]
• by OwataP
• Souzou Forest [IA -Aria on the Planetes-]
• by Jin
• Flashback Ambience [Hatsune Miku]
• by Eight
• This is a rock song that has a slightly muffled effect to keep the instruments less sharp and Miku's voice more prominent. It's a bit confusing at first listen because the guitars sound messy, but it grows on you as you loop.
• Fuantei Kanojo [Hatsune Miku]
• by 19
• ↓07 Title means "Insecure Girlfriend".

• Kazoe Uta [Hatsune Miku Append]
• by shalo
