All about Vocaloid!

    Wherein we discuss various aspects regarding the industry, the Vocaloids, and share the songs we can't get enough of. (≧▽≦)

    I recently discovered Ia's single, Higher, through Spotify's "Radio" feature (essentially turning it into Pandora), and I honestly thought they got the name confused with some indie Pop-Rap artist here in the States. This is the best English tuning I've ever heard! The music video is pretty cute, too. ^~^

    Y'know... I'm not sure why I thought wowaka passed away by his own hand. I'd then suspected it was because Samfree had taken that route in 2015 [ September 24th marking half a decade since ], only to realize my mind was still playing tricks on me. Huh...

    Well~, aside from my newfound worry about early-onset Alzheimers~, I suppose I should be somewhat relieved. After all, Wowaka gained a group of close-knit friends in the band would join, and Samfree would go on to have his music licensed in some of the best anime of the decade, including the Monogatari series.

    The song that inspired me to write this, Unknown Mother Goose, was the former's final Vocaloid song composed for Hatsune Miku's 10th anniversary. Given context, it's transformed for me what was once a cry for help, into the resounding sendoff it would've been.

    > If I can become “love” then what colour is that colour now.
    > Loneliness cannot be sorted out by a symbol, I lived shouldering my own heart!

    > And finally, today, at the end of it all;
