Based on the previous post here, you should've known that this is the PONPONPON Matsuri Week, which means there are TONS of covers of this super catchy song you'll end up singing it while you sleep! Worry not though since there are actually many arrangements of the song (and many styles in terms of covering it) so you won't be bored. It's a PONPONPON dominated week, but make sure to check out the other covers, too, since they are all equally good.

↑# - 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

I'll be including the weekly top ten and the overall top thirty of the week. Links to the nicovideo are included as well as some information. You may download the .mp3 file by inputting the link @ nicosound. Enjoy!

This month's Indies Ranking still has a lot of songs from the previous ranking, but there is surprisingly a large number of new ones. There are instrumentals, V-kei material, and your usual dose of post rock.

Like with the Weekly Utaran, a mirror to the English Nico Nico Site is also provided for the Monthly Indies Ranking, so if you want to comment in English, feel free to view this one.

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.

You might remember that I did a sort of intro post (plus a previous ranking writeup) for Nico Nico Indies Ranking. This is the ranking for this month. As I said, NNI is much more slow-moving compared to utattemita and Vocaloid, so you might still encounter songs here which appeared in the previous ranking. In order to keep your interests piqued, I'll copy my intro discussion on the artist from last ranking as they appear here. :)

Since I dropped the monthly Vocaloid ranking, I decided to replace it this time with the Monthly Nico Nico Indies Ranking.



Nico Nico Indies is a small part of the Nico Nico Douga site where people post their original works. The concept that is different from Vocaloid/Utattemita/Ensoushitemita is that the works here are all original and are usually instrumental or sung by people. Of course, while there are many unfamiliar names here, there are VocaloidPs and utaites that participate in this area, too, especially when they collaborate to sing original songs. Oftentimes, original songs from NNI appear also in utattemita, so you might recognize some of them. NNI is also a very slow-moving category, so there are only a few views/participants than what you might be used to.

I'm glad this ranking is just monthly because gathering information on the artists is a bit difficult, especially since I am also a bit new in this area. Since this writeup is to introduce people to NNI, I tried my best to be as descriptive as possible. If you are a fan of anyone mentioned in this ranking please feel free to chip in other information you can share re: the artist!

Since it has almost the same format, this ranking will be arranged just like the utattemita ranking, minus the colorful letters :). This might be a bit tl;dr than most of my rankings, so please be warned! Also, as I said before, this is a slow-moving category, so you will encounter songs here which you might have already heard months ago :).

Chano / シャノ

mylist | community | blog

Chano was first known in Nico Nico Douga as a namahousou personality and had started as early as 2008. She usually held namahousou to sing accompanied by her own piano playing. At first, she mostly sang Jpop songs as well as her own compositions, but she eventually started covering Vocaloid songs, also because of her closeness to FuMay and 40mP.

Chano's voice is thin with a high range and a slightly rough feel to it, although she rarely strains her voice and keeps her covers simple without vocal stylistics. Her voice can be likened to aiko's (the Jpop singer) and is very similar to singers like wotamin and Kakichoco. Her voice quality suits ballads and slightly upbeat poprock songs. She is also known for her wonderful diction and clear singing, even when she's singing while playing the piano and even while performing live in her namahousou.

She has formed namahousou units with FuMay and 40mP and they used to perform live with her on vocals and piano and the two guys in guitars. She has also participated in the CD Panoram a Note with 40mP and last year, has released her own CD Shalimar Tea where she both composed (with prominent producers like signalP, 40mP, yuxuki, etc.) and sung the songs.

Last September/October 2010, Chano got married to Vocaloid producer 40mP as you can see from the greetings in their collab Natsukoi Hanabi (which was also part of "Panoram a Note"). Recently, Chano and 40mP both reported that she is pregnant with their first child.

I didn't know much about Chano before because her covers then were not as many as other more prolific female singers. What introduced me to her was actually her own CD last year, Shalimar Tea, when its crossfade was uploaded in Nico Nico Douga. It is probably one of the best ballad CDs I've ever heard in this fandom and I'm amazed that most of the songs there were her own compositions. I like her gentle voice especially when accompanied by her own piano-playing. Sadly, I've only been to her namahousou once long ago and I'm hoping there will still be a time when she'll perform like that again.

And as for the baby news, best wishes to her and 40mP :).

Weekly Utattemita Ranking #122 (February 28-March 07, 2011)

This week's ranking has a lot of new stuff, despite the fact that some of the strong ones from the previous week are still hanging on, although most of those that had a huge rise last week have fallen just as fast today. There were some late-to-the-party bandwagoners of semi-old songs, quite a few parodies and possibly a new bandwagon song.

↑# - 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

I'll be including the weekly top ten and the overall top thirty of the week. Links to the nicovideo are included as well as some information. You may download the .mp3 file by inputting the link @ nicosound. Enjoy!

Weekly Utattemita Ranking #101

This ranking was uploaded twice, because the first one had some problems with the data from last week (I think it hasn't been included or something). Anyway, this writeup is of the second one. I'm sorry for the lateness.

NEW UPLOAD RANKING

o1. 「天樂」を歌ってみた【グリリ】
Tengaku [Guriri]
singer's mylist
Kagamine Rin original by YuuyuP
• One of the better female renditions of this song that I've heard. It does sound like she's overexerting herself in some parts, though ;;;.

o2. 【重音テト】テトでブラック★ロックシューターつくってみた【MMD】
Black Rock Shooter (Kasane Teto Edition) [Oyamano Mano]
• Hatsune Miku original by ryo
• 10-10-10 was Kasane Teto day, according to Nico Nico Douga and the Vocaloid-dom was busy uploading songs to commemorate the day. This is a unique one since it's a cover of Black Rock Shooter Teto version by the Oyamano Mano. Mano is the source of Teto's voicebank.

o3. 【シャノ】「君の手、僕の手」を歌ってみたよ
Kimi no te, Boku no te [Chano]
singer's mylist
Hatsune Miku original by 40mP

Starduster [Chomo feat. Kogeinu]

Hatsune Miku original by Jimmythumb

o6. ハロ/ハワユ 歌ってみた *リツカ*
Hello / How Are You [Ritsuka]
singer's mylist
Hatsune Miku original by HoehoeP
• Ritsuka sounds cute as usual, although not as cute as the hit cover by Kano. Somehow, she reminds me of Wotamin here.

o7. 【ぎらり】ロゼッタ、歌ってみた【秋赤音】
Rozetta [Aki Akane]
singer's mylist
GUMI original by monaca:factory

GUMI original by Faye x Junky
• Kano is back with another cute song.
