This week still has a lot of Jin, which is understandable since he just released his album today (and it debuted in Oricon's # 4 :O). In the meantime there are quite a lot of remnants from last week, although there are wonderful new songs worth checking out! A couple of songs from the past also whooshed their way to the ranking, primarily because of their utattemita versions. Enjoy!

Songs are arranged from 1-30.
• Kisaragi Attention [IA]
• by Jin
• Jin's recent is a change from hsi usual angry rock songs. Instead, it's a cute, happy, upbeat song with muffled bass and cutesy sound effects. It's really a nice change.
02. 【初音ミクSoft】 アイロニ 【オリジナル曲PV付】
• Irony [Hatsune Miku Soft]
• by Scop
• I am amazed by this song because Scop actually did not go for the grand intro (piano/guitar/all the works) for this song, but rather toned down the intro a bit and then slowly rising into a beautiful piano/guitar ensemble yet not removing the "gentle" aura of the song. It's quite reflective of how much Scop has grown as a composer these years.
03. 【初音ミク】お断りします REMIX【MOSAIC.WAV】
• Okotowarishimasu -remix- [Hatsune Miku]
• by Satsuki ga Tenkomori
• This is just a remix of Satsuki ga Tenkomori's song.
04. 【初音ミク】 エンパス144 【オリジナル】
• Empath 144 [Hatsune Miku]
• by YuuyuP
• YuuyuP has now also entered the "fast, angry rock song" phase, although he had been doing angry rock songs in the past XD;. What I like here is the dominant piano in the background while the rest of the instruments were like, melded together as one sound. Miku sounds a bit too high for me, but then again, YuuyuP tunes them all pretty high.
05. 【MV】 じん 「カゲロウデイズ」
• Kagerou Days Music Video [IA]
• by Jin
06. 【MV】 じん 「空想フォレスト」
• Kuusou Forest [IA]
• by Jin
• ↓01 Title means "Fantasy Forest".
• Sentensei Burika Shoukougun [Hatsune Miku]
• by Yuzuhiko
• Title means "Hereditary Tin Plate Syndrome". This one is a rather eerie rock song with Yuzuhiko's trademark ascending chorus and strong drums against muffled guitars.
08. 【巡音ルカ】 スウィートタイム 【オリジナル曲】
• Sweet Time [Megurine Luka]
• by EasyPop
• Easypop brings out a less than stellar song this time, primarily because it sounds like most of his other works. I appreciate the Luka tuning, though, because the echoing really brought her singing out.
• Kakehiki Game [GUMI]
• by TakanonP
• Title means "Strategy Game". I'm very fond of TakanonP's simple upbeat songs and this is one of them! The fast lyrics at the chorus are such a classic XD;. The melody is very simple, yet so enthralling.
10. 【巡音ルカ】magician's operation【オリジナル曲】
• magician's operation [Megurine Luka]
• by EZFG
• Tasogareyuku Omoi [Hatsune Miku]
• by GingahoumenP
• Title means "Remembering the Twilight". GingahoumenP's latest is a lovely, dramatic ballad with an escalating chorus with a wonderful orchestraic background. Miku's voice is clear against the slow but powerful music.
• Setsuna Trip [GUMI]
• by Last Note.
• Touhi Care [Hatsune Miku]
• by lumo
• Title means "Escape Care". This is also an old song, being uploaded last January, but gained attention because of Touyu's cover.
14. 【GUMI】 arachnoid 【オリジナル】
• arachnoid [GUMI]
• by psycho
• This was uploaded last year, but gained attention recently due to Bis's cover.
• Kodoku no Kakurenbo [IA]
• by 150P and Suzumu
• ↓05 Title means "One-man Hide and Seek".
16. 【鏡音リン】 Chikuwa 【オリジナル曲】
• Chikuwa [Kagamine Rin]
• by ZanioP
• ZANEEDS' latest Rin song is a rather powerful rock ballad with echoey Rin, but the art is just so cute ;;
17. 初音ミク FINAL DANCE Original-PV
• Final Dance [Hatsune Miku]
• by rest or stay?
18. 【初音ミク】 刹那プラス 【オリジナルPV】
• Setsuna Plus [Hatsune Miku]
• by MikitoP
• ↓04 Title means "Plus Moment".
• Senbonzakura [Hatsune Miku]
• by KurousaP
• ↓13 Title means "A Thousand Cherry Blossoms". Wow, it's almost 3.5 million!
• Rokuchounen to Ichiya Monogatari [IA]
• by kemu
• ↓12 Title means "A Tale of Six Billion Years and One Night".
21. 【MV】 じん 「ヘッドフォンアクター」
• Headphone Actor [IA]
• by Jin
22. 【KAITO】Mind Scientist【オリジナル】
• Mind Scientist [KAITO]
• by ShinjoP
• A Kaito song in the ranking!! And by ShinjoP even!! ShinjoP's music style might have changed over songs, as this one is an upbeat number with a rhythm that reminds me of ballroom dancing, but his KAITO tuning remains solid and high, as if in a constant falsetto. It's something that marks his songs and gives it the charm, I think.
• Shoujo wa Ukkutsu ni Kasa wo Sasu [Hatsune Miku]
• lyrics by Touka Hako, melody by Hayaya
• ↑ 96 This is a typical rock song but thankfully, it didn't follow the footsteps of fast-paced, angry songs we often hear recently. Instead it's a suave, well-paced song, pretty similar to early Polyphonic Branch works. The traditional Japanese effect is a great touch.
• Astro Trooper [Hatsune Miku]
• by YojigenP and Satsuki ga Tenkomori
• ↵ 44
• Kusattenai yo [Kagamine Rin]
• by KatahotoriP
• Title means "Not Decayed". KatahotoriP's recent is another happy-tuned pop song with a questionable theme. It's really cute, and Rin's sharp voice fits the melody well.
• Souzou Forest [IA]
• by Jin
• ↓20 Title means "Imaginary Forest".
• Mousou-suru Shikanai [GUMI]
• by OwataP
• ↓06 Title means "No Choice but Delusion".
28. 【初音ミク】 ダンスナンバーを共に 【オリジナル】
• Dance Number wo Tomo ni [Hatsune Miku]
• by Nanahoshi
• Title means "A Dance Number at the Same Time". It's a fast, catchy song but with slightly blurry lyrics (bec. they're so fast)! Still, I like the phrasing and rhythm so much.
• Konoha no Sekai Jijou [IA x Hatsune Miku]
• by Jin
• ↓26 Title means "Konoha's World Circumstances".
30. 【GUMI・鏡音リン】 インビジブル 【オリジナル曲・PV付】

• by kemu
