Since I dropped the monthly Vocaloid ranking, I decided to replace it this time with the Monthly Nico Nico Indies Ranking.



Nico Nico Indies is a small part of the Nico Nico Douga site where people post their original works. The concept that is different from Vocaloid/Utattemita/Ensoushitemita is that the works here are all original and are usually instrumental or sung by people. Of course, while there are many unfamiliar names here, there are VocaloidPs and utaites that participate in this area, too, especially when they collaborate to sing original songs. Oftentimes, original songs from NNI appear also in utattemita, so you might recognize some of them. NNI is also a very slow-moving category, so there are only a few views/participants than what you might be used to.

I'm glad this ranking is just monthly because gathering information on the artists is a bit difficult, especially since I am also a bit new in this area. Since this writeup is to introduce people to NNI, I tried my best to be as descriptive as possible. If you are a fan of anyone mentioned in this ranking please feel free to chip in other information you can share re: the artist!

Since it has almost the same format, this ranking will be arranged just like the utattemita ranking, minus the colorful letters :). This might be a bit tl;dr than most of my rankings, so please be warned! Also, as I said before, this is a slow-moving category, so you will encounter songs here which you might have already heard months ago :).

This "album" is a collaboration among Vocaloid producers, utaite, illustrators, and other artists, but it's not really an album. Actually, it's a series of songs uploaded in Nico Nico as a "set". If you know about the previous season albums "Utaite Tsunagu Album" which has included Clear, Wotamin, Re:A and others in the past, "&" is very much like them.

The theme is "relationships, ties and connections with all things". Each song is a collaboration of a VocaloidP, a singer, and an artist who did the PV. All songs are original and they are not covers of existing songs.

Here's the list of the songs, collab team and a short description on each song. The whole set is in this mylist. When you listen to one song, it automatically forwards to the next track, but in case it doesn't work, just check the mylist :).

Weekly Utattemita Ranking #122 (February 28-March 07, 2011)

This week's ranking has a lot of new stuff, despite the fact that some of the strong ones from the previous week are still hanging on, although most of those that had a huge rise last week have fallen just as fast today. There were some late-to-the-party bandwagoners of semi-old songs, quite a few parodies and possibly a new bandwagon song.

↑# - 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

I'll be including the weekly top ten and the overall top thirty of the week. Links to the nicovideo are included as well as some information. You may download the .mp3 file by inputting the link @ nicosound. Enjoy!

The first half of 2010 SP ranking (GUMI part) can be found here. For an intro on the SP ranking, please refer to the Miku compilation!

This compilation has even less songs at 80, but I'm sure they're all worth your listen!

Since all of them are GUMI songs, I'll just type the song, composer, and additional Vocaloids used if there are any.

Today is the 100th Weekly Utattemita Ranking and the upnushi has compiled a list of all the songs which ranked number 1 in all those 100 rankings. I posted a list here for easier access and understanding. The list of number 1's can be found here. All the rankings from 1-100 can be found in this mylist.

Some of the songs are mentioned twice/thrice, and it's because they are number 1 for more than one time. I hope you get to see familiar songs in this list of number ones! :)]

I'm really way behind ;;. I hope people are reading this even though it's late OTL. Two rankings ago, there is a new insert introduced to the ranking aside from the weekly 5 pickups. This is the "last year in top 5" segment where the top 5 songs in the ranking one year ago will be played. I guess I should be including those songs, too, but we'll see :).

I'll be including the weekly top ten and the overall top thirty of the week. Links to the nicovideo are included as well as some information. You may download the .mp3 file by inputting the link @ nicosound. Enjoy!

NEW UPLOAD RANKING

o1. 小鳥がry大漁のプロイセン [あとる]
Kotori ga (ry Tairyou no Prussia [Atoru]
singer's mylist
original MAD
• Atoru does a lot of covers of Hetalia MADs and I while I understand the Hetalia fever Nico people have, I will never understand the MADs xDD;.

o2. 1925 [Yoru]
singer's mylist
Hatsune Miku original by T-Pocket
• This is a nice cover compared to some earlier covers of the song. Yoru just sometimes overexert her voice and it sounds a bit whiny.

o3. カナザワカレー [ななひら]
Kanazawa Curry [Nanahira]
singer's mylist
• This is an original song and is the usual cutesy pop song Nanahira is used to singing.

o4. envy. [セリユ]
envy. [Seriyu]
singer's mylist
Megurine Luka original by 古川P (Furukawa-P)
• Seriyu has a really wonderful voice and while she sings by the book, she can still make the song interesting to listen to. Envy, however, is too slow and poignant to catch my interest. /sleepy

o5. シザーハンズ [マチゲリータ]
Scissorhands [MachigeritaP]
singer's mylist
Hatsune Miku original by Nem
• Machigerita is also a Vocaloid producer :). This is a rather sexy cover ^.^;.

o6. いろは唄 [志麻]
Iroha Uta [Shima]
singer's mylist
Kagamine Rin original by 銀サク (Ginsaku)
• LOL I'm used to guys singing covers of this Rin song, but Shima's still amused me. It's not as sexy as, say, Clear's or Dasoku's, but it's pretty well sung.

o7. ねぇ [ヲタみん]
Nee. [Wotamin]
singer's mylist
Hatsune Miku original by ほえほえP (Hoehoe-P)
• Wotamin has gone back to singing high ballads after her amazing cover of "Tengaku". I'm not complaining though, since her voice fits this kind of ballads.

o8. B.O.M. [tane]
singer's mylist
Kagamine Rin and Len original by マイゴッドP (MyGodP)
• Tane is back with a great cover! I really miss this guy. He's not as amazing as some of my favorites but for some reason, he always sounds good to me :3 (Well, I did listen to his sheep-counting thing sometime ago...)

o9. Fate:Rebirth [ココナシ助]
Fate:Rebirth [Kokonashijou]
• mylists: Kokoru, Takanashi, Kiijou
Kamui Gakupo, KAITO and Kagamine Len original by natsuP
• I love natsuP's VanaN'ice songs. This is a pretty good cover, a little lacking in punch but I might be just spoiled by VaSoClear's Imitation Black :3. I've seen quite a lot of covers for this. A new trend after Imitation Black? :P

1o. ナーバス [新社会人]
Nervous [Shin Shakaijin]
singer's mylist
Hatsune Miku original by shizuru
• Another new name to me that I should look up XD;. This is an okay cover. Not impressive, but also not bad (well, it's in the ranking after all). I guess it's just that I listened to Anima's version before I watched this cover fully so I'm a bit biased :x.

Wow, I can't believe I'm NOT catching up XDD;. They are piling up /cry. Anyway, I've discovered a lot of Nico singers thanks to the countdown, so writing this down is also helpful to me ;3. Now, to keep up with the weekly updates...

I think I should put some sort of commentary on the songs, right? ^^;. The list looks boring ;;.

I'll be including the weekly top ten and the overall top thirty of the week. Links to the nicovideo are included as well as some information. You may download the .mp3 file by inputting the link @ nicosound. Enjoy!

WEEKLY UPLOAD RANKING

o1. 御饌津の祭 [エリ赤音]
Sakujitsu no Matsuri [Eri Akane]
Elie's mylist (Aki Akane's mylist is empty o.o)
Hatsune Miku original by マイゴッド (My God-P??)
• I love this song when Rin and Len sang it and this is an amazing cover! Pupi mixed this song for Eri and Akane, btw. The high voices tend to be a bit strained and you notice it at the end of Rin's lines, but I think that's okay.

o2. 欲求不満マーチ [柿チョコ]
Frustration March [Kakichoco]
singer's mylist
Hatsune Miku original by 21世紀P (21st Century-P)
• I don't know much about Kakichoco but I definitely love her covers. Her Yume Sakura with Valshe was amazing and so are her other "hits". This is what I think is another hit. The first part starts off as slow and suddenly you're submerged into very fast techno beat with Kakichoco's superb vocals.

o3. OVER [みかりん]
Over [Mikarin]
singer's mylist
Hatsune Miku original by ShakeSphere
• Kettaro mixed this song for her. Mikarin is an unknown name to me. Her voice reminds of Usa, Hanatan types: High and has the tendency to get shrill, but since this is a gentle song, she sounds okay :). There are some high parts that sound awkwardly sung though.

o4. Bad Apple!! [てり団]
Bad Apple!! [terry + Oredan]
• singers' mylist: terry, oredan
nomico version
• I think this is an amazing cover. Terry singing while Oredan provides background beat <3.

o5. ロマンシング サ・ガ で、”Choose Your Future” [ヒャダイン]
From Romancing Saga: "Choose Your Future" [Hyadain]
singer's mylist
• NOSTALGIA! I thought Hyadain was a guy, but he sounds like a girl? Anyway, this is a powerful rendition. I'm not surprised it made it to the charts :).

o6. RAINBOW GIRL [らさ]
Rainbow Girl [Lasah]
singer's mylist
Hatsune Miku original by 再うp
• Lasah is also a new name to me. She has a rather deep and strong voice that reminds me of Yamai, that is why the song is a bit awkward when she sung it (she can't reach the high notes clearly). However the alternative/rockish way it was sung it kinda cool.

o7. 朝だお [よっぺい]
Asa dao [Yoppei]
singer's mylist
• LOL a very short one by Yoppei. This guy always surprises me. I love him.

o8. 7/8 [meola]
singer's mylist
Megurine Luka original by Yuyoyuppe
• meola has a wonderfully high voice which she uses well. This is a nice rendition, some parts were a bit hard for her it seems, but the overall feel is cute.

o9. Futatsu [エリィ]
futatsu [Elie]
singer's mylist
Hatsune Miku original by uzP
• Erii has a strong voice. Her low melodies reminds me of Valshe's songs, only more rockish. It's interesting to know that uzP himself mixed this song for her :).

1o. 7/8 [no name]
• no mylist ;;
Megurine Luka original by Yuyoyuppe
• Somebody needs to find out who this amazing guy is because he sings this song so well ;;.
