This fall, Fullkawa Honpo will release three CDs. Two are limited run exclusive singles and one is a full length album.

SKIRT is a HMV exclusive single that goes on sale September 4th. STORYWRITER is a Tower Records exclusive single that goes on sale October 2nd. Both are limited to 1,000 copies per store. Fullkawa's third full length major album SOUP goes on sale November 6th. It is not an exclusive album, so it should be available at many import stores. These CDs are released under Fullkawa's own label under SPACE SHOWER MUSIC called "". PV animations are by gaph, Fullkawa's design team.

Unlike his previous albums, these CDs will only feature vocals by Kikuchi Ryota, who is also known as Buzz Panda. The single "STORYWRITER" features a version of "Yoru to Nijiiro" featuring Kikuchi Ryota's own guitar accompaniment.

Last weekend, the_desserter and I were talking about HoehoeP/Nanou and his singing skills and eventually, it kind of branched out to producers in the utattemita category. Hence, this post is born XD.

Producers are known in the Vocaloid part of Nico Nico Douga as the composers, lyricists and Vocaloid tuners. But not many people know that a lot of producers also sing (either in the utattemita section only or in the whole doujin scene). Sometimes they sing covers of their own songs (self-covers) or songs of other Vocaloid producers. You may know one producer who sings covers of songs, you know, Tourai (minato/RyuuseiP)? XD He's one of the few who uses a different name for his covers, but that was because he was named Tourai/Tolie/Turai even before he admitted that he's minato ^^;.

Here are some of the producers who also upload their songs. Most of them have rearranged versions of the songs they are covering, sometimes just accompanied by guitar (they sound awesome, btw XD). These are some that I know of, but there are a lot more producers who upload their own singing, so if you know of them, please do inform me in the comments :3. The songs I used are just samples, though. Please visit their mylists for more.

Sorry for the late updates. I'm having so much fun in the "introduce yourself post" I kind of got lazy with the spotlights and updates, all of which I'm doing now! Also I'm trying to get a couple of friends into the fandom (again) and I'm still thinking of how to go about it. I suck at writing intro posts seriously XDD;.

Anyway, updates!

• It seems that there is a planned novelization of mothy's Aku no Musume/Meshitsukai series. There are no details released yet but here is some more info in Fujyoshinews (in Japanese), though.

• If you enjoyed the Utattemoratta CD 1 (theme: ikemen voices), you'll definitely love Utattemoratta CD 2 (theme: gender-defying voices). This is going to be released August 27 (clear's birthday lol) and will include Hitori, che:sakurai, vip-tenchou, Kogeinu and Lon. It's kind of stingy there are only two people in the cover though ;;.

• As I said in twitter, clear should take lessons on "how to pose for a CD cover" from Piko, who is to release his debut album. Limited edition has a DVD, too! Pretty face is pretty, I'm ashamed to be female, etc. While you're ordering why not order Irregular Voices by Ouzoku Band (y'know, the one with Tissue hime) feat. Sekihan, too XD. This was released last month so it's a bit older.

G.W. Nicolai website is updated with some info, art and demo of the seven singles they're releasing. Remember the ones having singles are ASK, Gero, Nodoame (lol lollipop art), Pokota, Yuge, Kogeinu and Makomakkou. You can view the crossfade demo in the "special" part of the site. And the tracklist at the "product" part. Here's a translation of what they are going to sing:

Gero: Kutabare PTA (NashimotoP) and From Y to Y (Jimmythumb)
ASK: Eh? Aa, Sou (papiyon) and d's (Kudou Yasumoto)
Kogeinu: Kusari no Shoujo (NoboruP) and Shinryoku no Kaze (Studio IMO)
Yuge: Dancing Samurai (mathru) and Neta Kiri Goukin Depenza (Don McCow/MML)
Pokota: Scissorhands (Nem) and Kuro no Kata Tsubasa (Studio IMO)
Nodoame: Migikata no Chou -Len ver.- (Noripy) and Spider Kiss (Ritsu Inoue)
Makomakkou: Spice! (minato) and Heaven's Door (Don McCow)

Some of them aren't Vocaloid songs :). At the moment, there is no way to buy the CDs aside from the shop but it might be available in Animate and other sites soon :).

• Usa Colony 4 has its site up with MP3 previews of the tracklist. It also has a crossfade demo in Nicovideo here. This will be released August 14, 2010 at Comiket.

• That kind of epic collab CD in a graceful sound has released a crossfade demo here. Remember this CD involves collaborations with producers 40mP, FullkawaP, Scop, ←P, KuwagataP and kous; and singers Tourai, Tabun Jibun, Erusi, Rumdarjun, Usa and F9.

• For those interested in BL games, "Nessa no Rakuen" has an OP teaser here (SLIgHTLY NSFW AND BL OF COURSE!) You might remember Dasoku is singing the opening song. Get your tissues ready.

• In case you missed it the first time I posted it, here is another page of the Utattemoratta 1 (clear, ASK, Dasoku, Pokota, Kettaro) CD interview. This one contains voice messages as well as handwritten ones (holy crap ASK's message D:).

• Before we get to the crazy part, have some random dancing by Pokota which is the reason why my brain broke last night.

• Now for the crazy part. Nico Nico Douga is actually holding an end-of-summer fest which involves a 27-hour marathon of guests from 18:00 TODAY up to 20:40 of the next day (Sunday). There is a list of guests here and they will only appear at certain times. In order to watch, just click the view tab in the site and you'll be seeing few ustream channels. The guests are singers, musicians, producers and gamers. I translated some of the guests' names (only the ones relevant to this comm) and the time they will appear under the cut. All of the time is in JPN time so please convert to your timezone~.

time table )

And that ends our update XD. I'll squeeze in some of the news later if something comes up~!

This is my first time actually waiting for and transcribing the midyear Vocaloid Ranking, so I'm a bit excited despite the work before me XD.

This ranking considered Hatsune Miku songs uploaded from 12AM of December 15, 2009 up 11:59PM of June 14, 2010. The formula of computing for the ranks is not included in the blurb, but I think it's almost the same as the weekly Vocaloid ranking formula. The video included the top 80 songs, but the mylist link has 478 songs OTL. There's no way I CAN type up all of them so I'll just include here the top 100. There's still the Kagamine, KAITO, Luka and GUMI rankings, so please look forward to them :). Please take this as an opportunity to listen to Hatsune Miku songs considered as the best this half of 2010 :).

So far, this and the annual rankings are the only ones I type in reverse order (from 100-1) so that it'd be more exciting :). If you want me to do the midyear/annual rankings in the traditional way (the 1-xx order), just tell me :).

• There's a news in nico nico douga regarding multiple accounts with the same IP address.

Asamakku (Asamaru and Jack) has issued some new rules for members of their community, rooting from the HIGH STREAM housou Asamaru guested in. I think Asamaru was a bit uncomfortable during that housou because of his fans spamming the chatbox, so they are asking their fans for some things when listening to them in a non-Asamakku live. These include:
- not calling them by their pet names if possible (Marutan, Jack-tan, Maruko, Asako, Jakko, etc.);
- not spamming about Asamakku as a unit when only one is guesting and the housou is not related to Asamakku;
- not spamming with too much emoticons (you know those scrolling shooting stars, etc.);
- not mentioning inside jokes and info only known in the community;
- not chatting with other members with trivial stuff not related to the housou;
- not mentioning anything trivial which is not related to the convo (e.g., I'm sleeping, I'm eating, etc.).
I think this generally means being more formal when listening to Asamaru and Jack in a housou outside the Asamakku community. Since HIGH STREAM is a more...formal housou, with musicians who do not know the inside works of Asamakku and its family, it must've been a bit uncomfy seeing the spam.

• The production of the album in a graceful sound is already in the works. This is a CD with original songs written by Vocaloid composers and sung by Nico utaite. The mentioned collabs are:
- FullkawaP x Tabun Jibun
- 40mP x Tourai
- KuwagataP x Usa
- kous x F9
- ←P x Rumdarjun
- scop x Erusi
It will be released August 14, 2010 and will be sold for 1000 yen

• You can now order the MGS Utattemita CD ~Starry Sky~ in Amazon, instead of doing it the roundabout way in toranoana :). Kudos to hatsudai-san and the people involved for making it possible.

notes: Thanks to [personal profile] southerncross for the heads up re: asamakku :)

This is a good week for uploads and pull-ups. We get Rin, GUMI and Miku in the top 10, a couple of Hayabusa dedications and some oldies surprisingly returning to the top 30. Of course, there's also wowaka's classic works haunting us XD.

Another normal week save from some of the ones at the top. The Ochame fever is not going down either, so we get a lot of that again, although the number of World's End covers have somehow disappeared. There are a lot of returners, for some reason, as well as mysterious disappearances XD;.

↑# - the song moved up from a previous top 30 rank

For some reason, I think this week's ranking doesn't feature a lot of new uploads. In fact, most of the entries are old songs rearranged into the rankings. There were a lot that fell, but there were some who held on strongly, probably affected by album release or a cover from the utattemita category.

↑# - 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
