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 :).

This week doesn't have a lot of new stuff but there are tons of amazing ones! There is also a large part of duets and collabs, all of which are interesting. There are a lot of returners (hi Lon, Glutamine XD) and 2 songs that came back because they reached a million views. Anyway, I'm sleepy so let's get on with it. And make sure you listen to the ED because it's awesome.

↑# - 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 "album" is a collaboration among Vocaloid producers, utaite, illustrators, and other artists, but it's not really an album. Actually, it's a series of songs uploaded in Nico Nico as a "set". If you know about the previous season albums "Utaite Tsunagu Album" which has included Clear, Wotamin, Re:A and others in the past, "&" is very much like them.

The theme is "relationships, ties and connections with all things". Each song is a collaboration of a VocaloidP, a singer, and an artist who did the PV. All songs are original and they are not covers of existing songs.

Here's the list of the songs, collab team and a short description on each song. The whole set is in this mylist. When you listen to one song, it automatically forwards to the next track, but in case it doesn't work, just check the mylist :).

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

Weekly Utattemita Ranking #111 (December 13-20, 2010)

This week is a bit late due to some problems with Nico Nico Douga's encoding system. Anyway, this week will have a lot of old faces rising up due to 1) a newly released album, 2) someone being just plain popular, and 3) the new number 1. While there is a lot of movement in the ranks by the old songs, there are also a ton of new songs to enjoy. Overall, this is a really good ranking with very interesting twists (LOL Glutam(ry ) so please do read on.

Utattemita Ranking #110 (December 06 to 13, 2010)

This week has a lot of movement from old songs, some returners and some expected rises. There are a lot of new songs to check out, but sadly, a lot of great songs from last week disappeared (where's my Keisen x 5coma collab ;_;). Anyway, this is a satisfactory ranking with a balanced entry of new songs and retaining of old ones. You might also notice a little change: I included the link to the writeup of the ranking in the "history" section so you can check out what other songs were popular in that ranking a year ago :). Enjoy!

Weekly Utattemita Ranking #109 (November 29 to December 06, 2010)

This is late (and the rest might be late, too) because of certain difficulties as I have no Internet at home and my work has blocked Nico Nico Douga. I apologize for delays in the future, too, if this kind of fail happens for a long time OTL.

Anyway, a big thanks to [personal profile] stephieku and the person who uploads the weekly utaran himself (who is so kind, I don't even...), I managed to get the ranking list and just...listened to them one by one instead of the ranking itself. I might miss some comments re: some of the songs, so sorry ;;. Anyway, on to the ranking, which is pretty predictable given the songs released this week :). There are tons of new songs, there wasn't much space for the oldies to cling on :(.

PS: The Vocaloid links in the blurbs inevitably lead to nicosound because it's what I used to listen to the songs ^^;. I'll try changing them but for now, please tolerate them Y_Y; Hopefully fixed the links back to Nicovideo.

↑# - 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
