This week, Senbonzakura still reigns supreme, making it a bandwagon song that doesn't pale in comparison to Matryoshka and Ura Omote Lovers. This week also gives us a bit of nostalgia because there are a lot of covers of old songs, songs we have encountered when we're all new to the fandom. I hope you enjoy this one.

Also, as a very kind move, Utaran-san is trying to upload the Weekly Utattemita Ranking IN ENGLISH. That means the blurb, the intro notes as well as the data in the ranking will all be in English. This is really a plus especially to those who have a hard time watching and/or commenting in the original ranking. The English ranking will be uploaded in Nico Nico.Com and for starters, he has created a mirror of the ranking there. If you cannot comment in Japanese in the original NND video, go all out in commenting in the English site to show your comments and reactions to the ranking as well as thanks to Utaran-san, who is painstakingly trying to reach out to us foreign fans.

From now on, I'll prioritize linking the English version.

↑# - the song moved up from a previous top 30 rank

Inakamono / イナカモノ

mylist | community | mixi community

Inakamono started his utattemita career way back from 2009. Last August 10, he reached his second anniversary as an utaite. He is fairly active in updating, uploading songs at least every two months. He is also fairly popular in the community, with all his uploads exceeding more than 10,000 views. He holds irregular namahousou, sometimes of him singing not only Vocaloid songs, but also popular J-pop/rock songs.

Inakamono is known for his deep, solid, "ikemen" voice that can shift from being "refreshingly gentle" to "impressively erotic", as his listeners say. He also has a very stable hold of his pitches and tones and while he only sings covers by the book (meaning almost always without his own adlibs or additions to the original style), he always brings out a wonderful cover of each song. Most of his songs are ballads/rock ballads in nature and he rarely does screaming, harsh rises in his voice or even falsetto/high pitches. Compared to other utaite, he is mostly categorized with Tourai or Nero.

Aside from singing solo, Inakamono also sings in duets with utaite like maro., Soraru, Wataame and Seriyu.

nikki says
I rarely talk about Inakamono, but he is one of my favorite utaite. I don't know much about him nor do I follow him as much as I follow Clear or other utaite but I always make it a point to listen to his songs. Actually, I don't remember disliking any of his covers at all! He just seems to be out of the limelight sometimes because he's singing the songs everyone is singing, though I think he should have more listeners as he's just...a wonderful singer. He reminds me so much of Tourai, with their similar voice qualities as well as with their tendency to sing songs as exactly as they were in the original (no adlibs, crack whatsoever). While that might seem boring to some, I appreciate it because I can see how well he manages to sing each song.

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.

Today's week is interesting for two reasons: 1) there's a new CM meme people will cover over the next days; 2) There is quite a large number of covers of non-Vocaloid songs.

The CM I'm talking about is this one. If I'm not mistaken, this is an ad for a deodorant and the singing boy does not seem to have any connection to the product aside from the fact that he is cute. Of course, when covers come up, crack ensues. You do the discovering XD.

As mentioned in the past post, the utaran is now color-coded according to the colors in the Utaran video.

Weekly Utattemita Ranking #126 (March 28-April 4, 2011)

This week still has some AC's going on, but there are no other bandwagon songs, so enjoy the variety this ranking has. The top 3's quite unexpected for me, but maybe it's just me :D.

Weekly Utattemita Ranking # 116 (January 17-24, 2011)

This week is awesome because there are many, many wonderful covers from people we all know and love. The new number one caused a lot of songs from the same singer to return to the ranking. Some of the songs I expected to stay dropped out while some I didn't expect to excel rose far above others. I'm pleasantly surprised with some, so let's get started with this week.

Weekly Utattemita Ranking #112 (December 20-27, 2010)

This is the ranking for Christmas week, which means there are tons of Christmas-related songs and parodies. Surprisingly, the top ones are very predictable since they haven't been toppled since last week, just rearranged a lot. Still, there are many interesting uploads this week, a rather big influx of parodies, and returners you wouldn't expect at all.

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!

As expected, two things are moving this week's ranking: 1) The Heart Sutra madness in Vocaloid-dom, which affected this side, too and 2) Jimmythumb's Calc, which already has tons of covers. Sadly, I am VERY biased with Calc covers (I like only ONE. And it's not in NND /shot). Plus, there's still remnants of Shinbakusuu #0822 and some of the returners are still persistent in staying. There's someone who invaded the ranking with three songs in the top 10, I wonder who that is XDD.
