Today's week has uploads from quite known producers (and new awesome ones), but they comprise only about half of the ranking, as most songs are old hachi songs that are stuck in our brains forever in a good way XD;. Anyway...

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

This week's Vocaran has a LOT of new stuff, most of them very awesome, so you guys better check them out. You might notice the descriptions are missing in some of the songs. That's because I can't load anything in Nico today and the ones I have descriptions of are those I've watched before. So, most of those written there are my opinions based on what I remember of the song (please kick my slow Internet). Sorry. ANYWAY...

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! :)

monaca:factory / 10日P

mylist | community | blog | piapro | KarenT profile | HearJapan profile

Since I've featured all the other members of s10rw (which you might remember includes yuxuki/sorairo club, whoo, ryuryu), I might as well introduce the remaining member of the group :).

Monaca's P name (10-dayP) originated from the number of days he took to learn the basics of Vocaloid/music-making, composing the song, setting the lyrics and uploading his maiden work ^^;. He's the final member of s10rw, which is a group of Vocaloid producers centered on technopop, electronica, and other similar music styles.

Like with the rest of the group, Monaca is not a chronic uploader in Nico Nico Douga, having only produced a handful of songs even though he started his Vocaloid career in 2008 with Nijiiro. However, he has participated in more than 10 CDs/compilations including EXIT TUNES Presents GUMIism, which will be released soon.

Monaca's style is very different from his co-members. His music is described as technopop, electronica and shoegaze, although I'm more inclined to think that instead of shoegaze, his music leans more towards post-rock with chiptune and ambient (almost like ryuryu) inspirations. He also does wonderful piano and guitar ballads. Distinct characteristics of his upbeat music include simple but repetitive electronic beats reminiscent of early Vocaloid works (kz, azuma, etc.). His ballads almost always have piano music laced with subtle electronic beats which gives off an ambient/trance-like appeal. Aside from that, he also uses orchestraic effects.

Monaca uses Hatsune Miku (append and not) in almost all of his works, although recently, he has started using GUMI, too. In this part, he's also unique from his co-members because instead of giving Miku a breathy, gentle voices, he tunes her sharp and ringing. His GUMI is also crisp and edgy.

sample songs
Shuukyokusei to Ao no Oto (Miku)
Genshoku no Refrain (Miku Append)
AQUA (Miku Append)
SPACE SHIP (Miku)
Rosetta (GUMI)


nikki says:

I discovered monaca:factory after he released Genshoku no Refrain, but I never got to listen to all of his works until I saw him collaborating as part of s10rw. What's interesting about his works is that he never settles on a single music style. His list has a ballad, a couple of rock songs, a lot of pop songs and earlier chiptune-like works. His experimenting usually yield hits like Rosetta. If you haven't listened/bought his works, his album "Kasei no Yureru Mizu Koe" is a good way to start because it showcased the genres he is good at: post-rock, ambient-cum-piano-ballad, and technopop.



I think, for the utaite spotlight, I'll feature someone related to these people as sort of closure to the discussion about their circle :).

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.

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.

There are a lot of new songs this week from familiar/popular composers. There is a drop in Heart Sutra arrangements don't worry. Also, is it just me or a lot of the songs here are affiliated to water-related things like fish, etc.?

Today's ranking is pretty predictable because you all know what's coming, right? Yeah, HEART SUTRA WEEK is this week. So please be prepared to be enlightened to Nirvana with all the sutras in this ranking (don't worry, there are some amazing, nonheart sutra songs as well ^^).
