Weekly Vocaloid Ranking # 219 (December 05-12, 2011)



This week, we have a lot of covers courtesy of the queen of Len covers, OrebananaP. There are also surprisingly a lot of returning songs, most probably because of their covers in the Utattemita Ranking. We also have quite a few unfamiliar names in this ranking so if you can, please spare a minute to check their music out!

Weekly Vocaloid Ranking #218 (November 28 - December 05, 2011)



A bit late, I'm sorry. The opening picture for this week's Vocaran is Yuzuki Yukari, the Vocaloid3 software developed by Vocalomakets and AHS. This week has a lot of awesome new songs, but a lot of the good songs from last week has remained too.

Again, many thanks to Stephie for covering the Vocaran for the last two weeks.

Weekly Utattemita Ranking # 152 (September 26-October 03, 2011)



This week has a lot of new songs from popular utaite, as well as some remnants from last week. Half of the ranking is also composed of the highly successful bandwagon song, Senbonzakura. You can see a wonderful transition portion at the lower part of the ranking, consisting only of Senbonzakura singers XD;.

As usual, not much description tonight. Sorry...

Apologies again for a post with lame comments. Anyway, Senbonzakura is in full bloom as it rises to the top, but there are also a loooot of new songs this week from people you already know and love so be sure to check them out! Some of them includes a new brainwash song (not again D: ), some GUMI V3 initial songs and a lot of hard rock stuff.

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..........

Since Nikki will be gone for a few days, I'll be filling in for her today! Also Sippotan is back, so this is likely the last weekly ranking by Iori.

Sorry my comments are so boring, I liked most of the songs this week (even the ones I didn't comment on) 8D;. There are some old returners due to new uploads and news.

Apologies for being so damn late.

Due to work issues, I haven't been able to do the Vocaran for this week. However, [personal profile] stephieku has kindly typed up the Vocaran writeup for the comm. The only thing lacking are the comments, since we both don't have the time right now to listen and comment properly on each song. But! Stephie has included everything else in the ranking. A big thanks to her!

Weekly Vocaloid Ranking # 189 (May 5-16, 2011)

This week has a lot of new songs (and a lot of returners!) and is interesting because there are actually many producers in the ranking which you probably haven't seen before XD;. This ranking is worth your listen, I guarantee it, so let's get to it!

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.

Weekly Vocaloid Ranking # 188 (May 05-09, 2011)

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...

Weekly Vocaloid Ranking #179 (February 28 - March 07, 2011)

Not that many new songs this week and most of the rankings are just movements of those from the previous ranking. However, I hope you won't skip this one because despite the few new stuff, most of the songs are from Ps you don't hear from often or you might have never even heard of before.

Weekly Vocaloid Ranking #174 (January 24-31, 2011)

I'm a bit late (by hours?) with this week's writeup, since I'm busy finishing some stuff for this month XD;. Anyway, this week has a lot of remnants of the previous rankings, but there are a few new songs worth a listen. Most of the old songs are at the bottom of the ranking, so it's apparent that the new songs are also top-notch. Super old regulars also showed some strength this week, either returning or not slipping away (yes, this includes daniwellP's nyanya song which is still stuck in my head XD).

I have a mod announcement coming up a bit later, so please wait for that, too!

Vocaloid Midyear Special Ranking 2010 2nd Part (GUMI Compilation)

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.

Vocaloid Midyear Special Ranking 2010 2nd Part (Hatsune Miku compilation)

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 :).

Weekly Utaran #113 (12/27/10 - 01/03/11)

Weekly Utattemita Ranking #113 (December 27, 2010 - January 03, 2011)

The first ranking of the new year! This week has a lot of movement because while there are new uploads, a lot of the previous week's hits managed to stay in the ranking for this week. There's a bit of a problem in the new upload ranking since the list in the mylist and in the video do not match, so at the moment, I'm waiting for confirmation/correction from the Weekly Utaran uploader. Very sorry about that! Anyway, geh, I can't say anything suspenseful since this week MIGHT be predictable to some of you ^^;.

The discrepancy has been clarified, thank you as always to @weekly_utaran

Even More Singing Producers?

This week's ranking doesn't have as many new uploads as before but hey, 15 new songs in the ranking isn't bad. There are strong keepers (LOLwowakadecoetc) but the ones who rose to the top are new, lovely music definitely worth a listen. I apologize for the lateness of this post, though, as well, Christmas = parties = sleepless nights. Yup. Not to mention the Internet is amazingly slow during the holidays, isn't it? Anyway....

This week is an extension of even more Matryoshka bandwagoning and people trying to unleash the MMORPG gamers/singers in them. And new names, you might be surprised :). Someone decided to flood the rankings with his weird yet well-done covers, wonder who that is? XD

NEW UPLOAD RANKING

o1. 【Vin】Corruption Garden【吐いてみた】
Corruption Garden [Vin]
singer's mylist
Megurine Luka original by Caz
• This is actually the first male cover of this song that I've listened to, and I think Caz's song has been upped in GAR points by Vin ^^;. I don't usually like screamo, but wow, wth was that. I guess people have also been checking Vin after he was announced as a guest in a mini-concert next year :).

o2. 追跡立方体、キューブ 歌ってみた-遊
Tsuizeki Rippoutai, Cube [Yuu]
singer's mylist
Kagamine Rin original by NankaisekaiP
• I haven't gotten used to Yuu's voice, but I also haven't gotten to his choice of songs LOL. It's always creepy though XD.

o3. 【つきじ】「また君に恋してる」歌ってみた
Mata Kimi ni Koishiteru [Tsukiji]
singer's mylist
• This reminds me of old anime ;_;. The voice is really pretty, too! Like...Okiayu Ryoutarou.

o4. 「Sweet devil」を歌ってみた【グリリ】
Sweet Devil [Guriri]
singer's mylist
Hatsune Miku original by HachioujiP
• I actually like this better than Nobunaga's version. There's still a mountain of autotune in this song, which can't be helped, but Guriri sounds more solid and more refined. There's a bit of awkwardness with the phrasing but you can't help getting confused with the Engrish in this song ^^;.

o5. 「after this」歌ってみた@そらこ
after this [Sorako]
singer's mylist
Hatsune Miku original by NioP
• I haven't heard from Sorako much before this so I'm kind of glad she's uploading pretty covers again. Her high voice suits NioP's Miku range, although sometimes a bit missing from her cover. Very simply sung, which makes it a nice listen.

o6. 「Specification」歌ってみた【柿チョコ】
Specification [Kakichoco]
singer's mylist
Hatsune Miku original by papiyon
• One of the clearest covers of this song that I've heard. Kakichoco nailed the song and how to make it sound crisp and clear and full of feelings without effort.

o7. 【APヘタリア】アメリカとイギリスでマトリョシカ【歌ってみた】
(Hetalia Parody) Amerika to Igirisu de Matryoshka [collaboration]
Hatsune Miku and GUMI original by hachi
• Here comes the anime!Matryoshka bandwagon. I find them really amusing for some reason, the serifu especially.

o8. 声 - 歌ってみました。
Koe [Konori]
singer's mylist
Kamui Gakupo original by TambourineP
• Konori does Gakupo really well as always, although I have to remind myself to separate him from Machige's creepy works as I listen.

o9. 「ネトゲ廃人シュプレヒコール」 辻ヒールしてみました
Net Game Haijin Sprechor [Boku]
singer's mylist
Hatsune Miku original by Satsuki ga Tenkomori
• Reminds me of Nanahira, just one the more shriller level LOL ^^;

1o. 「ネトゲ廃人シュプレヒコール」歌ってみた。 ver.こ~ら
Net Game Haijin Sprechor [Ko~ra]
singer's mylist
Hatsune Miku original by Satsuki ga Tenkomori
• Ko~ra has a nice voice that I wouldn't think would sound good in rock-ish songs but he actually did the song well.

Also, we have quite a beautiful number 1 and a lot of new songs. Most importantly, we have KAITO in the ranking XD. Enjoy!
