Like the previous Song of the Day, Arleigh and I discovered this song at a panel at Anime Boston this past weekend. It also uses the Vocaloid characters, although this one features Hatsune Miku and Megurine Luka. Unlike the character Mayu though, these two aren’t generally known for their yandere traits, so seeing them in this light is a bit shocking. All I can say about it is, I can never look at the two the same every again.
One of my newest obsessions. Newest in that I’ve only started collecting them in the last year or so. My newest obsession feeds the growing otaku growing inside me. This awesome and criminally cute little things are the “nendoroid” line of anime-based figures from Good Smile Company of Japan. This particular group is of the smaller nendoroid petit line and using the Vocaloid characters. Vocaloid is a singing synthesizer application software which has become the rage in Japan and especially those who are very into the anime/manga scene.
These have become the replacement to those damnable Pokemon’s everyone were trying to catch a decade ago. I do believe I’d rather have these than those weird looking critters. So, finally receiving this set in the mail today has made my inner otaku quite happy indeed. >.<
