Today's ranking has a lot of movements, especially in the old songs (I'm a bit surprised at the rises XD). There is also the Kira Miki Fest, which is why we have 2-3 Miki songs in the ranking this week. There are also a lot of new ones to check out! :)

As always, thank you so much to Iori-san for adopting the ranking and taking the time to upload! Let's also hope that sippotan and his house/family are safe and are near recovery! That said, let's go on with 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

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.

The last one for this year, this is our third list of songs Vocaloid producers sang. They can be self-covers, covers of other songs or original songs altogether. You might be familiar with some of them as they appeared in the utattemita ranking.

mylist | piapro |

kaoling, who first named herself as "kaoling koto deita", started uploading her works in Nico Nico Douga January of 2010 and remains satisfactorily active at present. Aside from Vocaloid works, she also covers a few songs and does some mixing for other songs/covers.

kaoling's works are inspired by Celtic, ethnic/traditional and trance-new age music, which is why all of them sound surreal and magical. Her melodies are always rich because of the influx of various instruments she uses. Her works are a bit near to BungaP's/Vocalotus' works except that BungaP uses approaches closer to Japanese traditional music while kaoling's works sound closer to Irish/Celtic folk songs. Despite that, her works are mostly centered on Japanese themes.

She uses solely Hatsune Miku for her works, who she tunes impeccably. Her tuning is not as clear or flawless as most seasoned producers, but she uses Miku's voice to the fullest to fit her songs. Multiple background vocals, echoes, alternating low and high chant-like voices, breaths, etc. - she uses Miku in a special way apart from other producers. Think of KAITO in ShinjoP's works.

kaoling also occasionally sings and has sung a cover of her own song as well as one of another producer's. I must say she also sounds wonderful in her type of music.

sample songs
Memoria "Kimi no Omomuku Mama ni" (Hatsune Miku) [celtic]
title translates to: "Memoria: As you Indulg"e
Nagisa wa Gozen 9-ji (Hatsune Miku) [trance]
title translates to: "The Beach at 9:00 AM"
Hane wa Nai Kedo Watashi Toberu (Hatsune Miku) [celtic / orchestra]
title translates to: "I Do Not Have Wings but I will Fly"
Chitte Shimae yo Sakura no Gotoku (Hatsune Miku) [traditional japanese]
title translates to "Scatter Forth like Cherry Blossoms"
Kami no Namae ni Ochiru Mono (Hatsune Miku) [celtic / ethnic]
title translates to "One who Falls at the Name of God"

Pane dhiria (original by ShinjoP)
Kami no Namae ni Ochiru Mono (self-cover)

nikki says
I have truly fallen in love with kaoling's songs since I heard Memoria, mostly because I love Celtic/ethnic/traditional music very much. She does it so well from the intruments used to the lyrics to Miku's tuning. I especially love how her songs sound alike yet they have different instruments used for them. The vast range of melodies you can hear in her songs makes her songs loopable. The details she puts in the songs as well as the expertise in making all of them sound wonderful is really impressive.

With her type of music, it might seem that her works are impossible to cover. But actually, a few people have wonderfully covered her works including Lilie and Re:.

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....

Not a very eventful ranking, some of the oldies are pushed away by what I call the Kaito matsuri (not really) XD;. The top tiers are a bit predictable, though XD.

↑# - 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

The songs are arranged from 1-30, please be reminded :).
