Apologies that this is late again. I'm having problems with Nicodou today and I can't load the individual videos, so I just settled for the ranking video itself and the song previews. Sorry of the comments are much more unhelpful than usual ^^;.

It's MMD cup season so you'll be seeing a lot of MMD videos. There's also quite a lot of Rin, which means variety from the GUMI-fest we had recently. You'll notice in the history from this ranking and the previous that last year, around this time was the time popular producers started using GUMI (hachi, SignalP, etc.), probably signifying her rise in popularity, too :). It's been a year since Matryoshka, WTF.... I am still looping it..........

This is so late. I'm so sorry. Anyway, this week, we STILL have a lot of GUMI and surprisingly many Luka songs. A lot have still remained from the previous ranking, though.

As you might remember, I posted the midyear special ranking sometime in July, where the songs included were those uploaded from December 2009 to June 2010. This is the LATTER PART of that ranking, where the top songs from June 15 to December 14, 2010 are uploaded.

The video has 80 songs, but the mylist has 200 songs O_O;. A-anyway, I've included them all in the list. As with the previous mid-year ranking and all the other rankings which aren't weekly, this is written in reverse for more suspense :D.

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

The last few are so predictable XD;. Anyway, I'll be doing the rest of the rankings, too (how many more to go? D: ) so please wait for them! /o/

...The tags...I...will do them later orz.

Just a heads up since you might not notice, but I won't be using YT links/embeds for utattemita/Vocaloid music anymore unless it's something not in Nicovideo. Some songs are being deleted off YT and IDK really how producers/singers think of people multi-posting their works in YT, so to keep it safe, I'm using the official Nico Nico Douga links forever XD;. This will also apply to my other websites ([community profile] onsenjikan, etc.). Thanks!

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 :).

I have a feeling that I don't want to tag this....

Hello DW members, LJ readers and readers from RSS/outside :).

As you may have noticed, we've been mostly concentrating on utaite stuff since this community started. It's not bad at all, imo, but recently, my friends and I have started learning about Vocaloid producers. You can't have covers without original works after all, right? :) So, in order to step things up, we (or rather I ;;;) decided to make Thursdays in [community profile] ofurotaimu Producer day XD.

What is a producer anyway? A producer is generally a Vocaloid song's composer, lyricist and arranger. Producers are sometimes referred to by their P name or their name (whether based on their works or not) plus a P suffix (RyuuseiP, KurousaP, FullkawaP, etc.).

What do we do during P-day? Basically, I'll just post a short intro on one or two Vocaloid producer/s, popular or not, a list of some of their songs and my thoughts on them (like my favorite songs, etc.). Of course, everyone else's homework is to check the producer out and find out more about his/her works! Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments. Any will do, like your favorite song from the P, your thoughts on his/her style, your favorite covers, etc.! If any of you know more about a certain P featured on P-day, please guide us :3. If you're new into Vocaloid or if you want to know more about the wonderful people behind the songs, let's learn together :D!

Today is Thursday, so I'll be starting P-day now :). Since this is the first post, let's talk about someone most of you might have heard of...


HeavenzP

mylist | piapro | Miku wiki entry

HeavenzP started uploading his Vocaloid works January of 2009 and is not as prolific as some producers, having only uploaded five songs with the most recent this March. Utaite fans might know HeavenzP as the composer of Just Call My Name, which Tourai covered a few months ago.

HeavenzP is known for his rock ballads and is also dubbed as a "bassline magician". He's not very flexible with his melody; you can totally notice the similarities among his songs, but it is part of why his songs have this distinct feel. He tunes his Vocaloid (Miku as of now) to sing in super high (Yurameku) or super low (Just Call My Name) notes, which makes his songs hard to cover if one is aiming to match the original pitch.

Unlike earlier producers, HeavenzP did not get his producer name from his works and has retained his original name for the P suffix. His first work, Yurameku is currently his most viewed upload at more than 100k.

Since he only has less than ten songs, I'm listing them all here, but for those with a massive up list, I'll just choose a few :).

Sample Songs:
Yurameku | Nicovid | Youtube | lyrics |
Mousou Daytripper | Nicovid | Youtube | lyrics |
Just Call My Name | Nicovid | Youtube | lyrics |
Imitation | Nicovid | Youtube | lyrics |
Atoms | Nicovid | Youtube | lyrics |



Nikki says:
My favorite works from him would be Mousou Daytripper and Atoms. Even though it's his least-viewed song, I like Daytripper because it is upbeat and Miku's voice is not as high or low as his other works. Atoms is just amazing with the catchy tune and science terms scattered all over the song! ♥


-----


ETA: I only know a few female Vocaloid producers (OSTER Project, iroha, natsuP) so I'm often unsure of a producer's gender. I will just use he whenever I'm unsure. It's not a bias, ok XD. It's just that some producer names are actually GROUP names and at that time, I have to use "they" for them :).


That wasn't so bad XD. Since we're trying to be more organized here (really, now?), we'll be implementing a day schedule for the posts :).

Monday - Weekly Utattemita Ranking
Tuesday - Weekly Vocaloid Ranking (or monthly, if there is)
Wednesday - free day (for my other sites minty rain and [community profile] onsenjikan
Thursday - Producer Day
Friday - ...you will know tomorrow, of course XD.
Saturday - none yet
Sunday - spam Twitter day for me LOL.


Thanks for watching the community. I hope the posts here have been or will be of help and will continue to capture your interest! BTW, if you are in LJ, our comm is syndicated there! Feel free to add our feed there :).




wow, our tags are massive. must fix stat. D:

I skipped this week's Vocaranking to give way to this massive list XD;. The video only showed the top 30 but the mylist went on to top 80 and being obsessive, I did the whole list OTL. Anyway, here's your top 80 songs for the month of March! Why am I not surprised at the amount of wowaka-san in this one? ♥
