Merry Christmas! This week is indeed "merry" because of the large amount of collaboration uploads, plus interesting uploads which include covers of English songs, dance covers by utaite, and rearranged covers of songs. There are also quite a few PONPONPON covers lingering this week, which are still awesome by default. This is the last Weekly Utattemita Ranking of the year, so enjoy!

Baru / バル

mylist | community | blog

Baru has been singing since 2009, but she got her break in 2010. She is also known for her pretty cover of Scop's "Top Secret", which had more than 200k views.

She had a rough start when she was starting in the utattemita community (and is often called out for it even now). After all, her name is almost the same as that of prominent utaite-turned major artist Valshe, and Valshe often used the name "Baru" in her namahousou. She was accused of taking the name to ride on Valshe's fame, which she quickly denied since her name came from "ganbaru", which is one of her tag lines. Because of this issue, Baru contacted Valshe about the problem with their names. Valshe told her to keep the name and strive to be known not for her name but for her talent. In order to not confuse them, Baru sometimes use the name "Baruko" (バル子).

Baru's voice is of medium range, somehow among the lines of Riseha and surprisingly, Valshe XD. She can sing moderately high songs but she lacks a bit in low notes. Despite that, her voice's power and clarity makes up for it and her covers are always said to be "clearly ringing". She's often described as someone having an "adult voice" because of her range, but she can also sing cute songs without awkwardness. Her first few covers were well-received but did not gain much attention because they weren't mixed/encoded well, and as soon as she got them right, she has gained popularity pretty fast.

She has made friends with a lot of utaite including Wotamin, Ryou-kun, etc. although her collabs aren't a lot. She has also collaborated with composer Utamaru for a Nico Nico Indies song.

sample songs
A. Solos
Kimi no Te, Boku no Te (40mP original)
Monochrome Blue Sky (NoboruP original)
crack (keeno original)
Usotsuki no Sekai (scop original)
Aquarium (Kihee original)

B. Collabs
Aa, Subarashiki Nyansei (w/ TaMu; Nem original)
Nakimushi Kareshi (w/ Ryo-kun; FernandoP original)

nikki says
Baru didn't really get my attention until she uploaded "Top Secret". She was one of the first who did covers of the song and it was really well done. When I checked her mylist, she actually has a lot of good songs already, like her first upload "Namae no Nai Uta", but she didn't get enough attention back then. I guess the mixing really helped. It's sad that she had to undergo a lot of criticisms when she was just starting out, but looking at it now, I think she has more than made up for that with her wonderful covers. I don't like her extremely low or high voice, but her regular range is really impressive. I think my favorite cover by her would be "crack" and "Usotsuki no Sekai".

This is a combination of the rankings for September and October. As the NNI category is pretty slow with updates, there's still a lot of old stuff in this ranking. However, there are also a lot of new ones worth watching, although you may have already encountered them somewhere if you follow some VocaloP/utaite's original stuff. Apologies for the lateness, I didn't realize it was already uploaded OTL.

This week has a lot of uploads, although not so much by popular people. Which is why this week is a good chance to be acquainted with awesome singers with satisfactory popularity! There are still remnants of awesome from last week, but I hope you'll take the time to listen to some people new to you this week :).

Also, ignore the lack of comments in some of the videos. I can't load them :/

ATTENTION: Apparently, the MAJI LOVE COVER phase is 1000% STILL NOT OVER. So we're getting them by the bulk this week, some of them cracky, some of the....wait. ALL OF THEM CRACKY. Which is probably the reason why I'm writing in caps today. Apparently, the large amount of Maji Love I watched today has affected my cracky mentality! /shot

Seriously, though, there are only a few remaining from the previous week and there are a lot of wonderful songs this week. Of course, there's still the Shiryokukensa madness (a few), and lots and lots of collabs, which means you'll be seeing new names today :). Anyway, I'll stop rattling like a parrot and get on with the ranking.

PS: Thank you to everyone who offered their condolences and gave me comforting words during my trying days. I'm okay now, just still busy with work but I'm back online and I'll try my best to keep up with the community activity. Many, many thanks to [personal profile] stephieku for being patient with me even if I'm overworking her :(. So, so, sorry for the delay and angst and everything else! Next month is a new beginning /o/ ♥, nikki

I'm so late. Sorry. There's a lot going on right now which I can't enumerate so yeah. The Vocaran is also late. I'll...upload it tomorrow. I really am very sorry T_T;

Anyway, this week has a bandwagon song and that's 40mP's Shiryokukensa, so you'll be seeing a lot of eyesight test covers today. There's quite a few returners this week, too, if you might notice. There are also some repeating names (Glutamine, 96neko, Wotamin...) but there are also a lot of left-overs from the previous week. Anyway, it's not a letdown or an impressive week, pretty normal but there are still a lot to check out.

This week has overloads of maji love 1000% (still?!), Kuwagata (not the P) song by UramanbouP (both versions are awesome), 40mP songs and Ano Hana theme in the pickup. We have an interesting yet limited selection this week, it should be easier to go through them. Enjoy :).

Also, if there are any errors, please forgive me. I fell asleep while writing this and I woke up just in time to stop myself from writing "Koman" instead of Marasy and "Chef" instead of Soraru (yeah, don't ask). OTL.

Apologies for being late. I have no Internet at home and I just snuck!wrote this while I'm busy with work. I'll try my best to post Vocaran later or tomorrow, too. I'm sad that I don't get to flail much with the songs since I can't load Nico Nico Douga here at all so please ignore my lack of witty comments. There are a LOT of wonderful new songs this week, particularly in the top ten. There's also a gratuitous amount of crack and parodies. There is also a ton of tapir song covers XD. A couple of singers here in the ranking are more known in the namahousou part of NND and just crossed over here. Hope you enjoy them despite the boring writeup!

PS: You may also notice the lack of "overall ranking" data in my writeup. It's because I can't load the video to see them ^^;. Ignore those for now as I'll add them later when I find an opportunity to watch the video. Sorry again.

This week's a bit slow and there are a lot of pull-ups, as well as retains. Still, that doesn't mean there's nothing to see (Dasoku and ASK have two songs each in this ranking, oi!). Not tl;dr-ing tonight so let's go.
