Arisa Mitsuko; Are We Being Quite Fair?

Arisa_Mitsuko|Story | Website (Spanish) | Website (Translated)

Are we really being fair about this?  TnTvirtual DID say afterall on her website that she is an UTAU, they paid up, wrote a freaking apology letter, held no further concerts, and explained about her voice source.  What more do you want?  She has no English-speaking fanbase to the best of my knowledge.  I'm surprised this is the same fanbase that accepted Teto, Tei, Ritsu, and Ruko.  vip@2ch's 'products' are extremely popular, especially Teto.  They have huge fanbases while Arisa is a big unknown.  I downloaded her a few days ago.  She has a great (if slightly muffled) romaji voicebank.  If she was clearer you'd think she'd be a Vocaloid.  So for Pete's sake why can't we just listen to her.  Get her an American fanbase.  Spread the word.  At the end I'll attatch a video of her being properly utilized.  We should get her more popular, like we did with Rin and Neru around the time of "Okay, Green is the Enemy".  That started a large motion to use them instead.  Well this is the start for Arisa Mitsuko.  Thank you for reading.

The difference between her and the UTAUs you mention are the fact that Teto and Co were made as a fan joke. Mitsuko on the other hand :

  • Went under the Vocaloid name but only in a more serious manner; i.e. not as a simple joke
  • Was advertised as a Vocaloid even though it had an UTAU bank in her name (Teto gave up her title as a Vocaloid when she went UTAU in comparison, heck even long before that happened)
  • Was used commercially under the Vocaloid name (In other words money was involved)
  • Infringed the copyrights of both fan arts and mmd models (As described on her wiki page here)


TL;DR : Unlike Teto there is far more legal concerns with Mitsuko, even if she is UTAUed (Assuming she is using the thing, there are concerns about that too).

...And this is to not mention the code of contact those involved with her...

Regardless we don't touch her page because Twin Drill were in a legal bid last we heard over the use of Teto in the concert without permission. We were asked not to get involved with this and we've stayed out of things. Hence why we just don't talk about her.

Yeah... I'm dropping a hint here... :-/

On top of everything other people of said - her voicebank in itself is also terrible.

First off, she's not clear at all, she sounds like she was recorded in a potato a.k.a. a webcam mic or one of those crappy extremely cheap logitech mics - hell, MY UTAU recordings are better than hers, granted I use a Blue Yeti, which is a very good mic but at the same time it's very affordable, I got mine for like $70; now that says a lot that a self proclaimed "company" won't even pay money for a feasible mic, and the sad part is this is the second bank she's had recorded.

Secondly, her tone is extremely awkward, it sounds like her voice provider is conflicted on whether to record a normal-strong tone, or something similar to a "dark" voicebank, not only does it not sound very good, but it's really not suitable for most songs, her odd accent doesn't help much either, granted I've heard nice-quality Spanish-Japanese voicebanks with accents, but in this case, it just doesn't sound good. She also pronounces about 1/4 of her vocals incorrectly.

Third, her oto is god-awful, it's so choppy - even for a CV voicebank, if I actually liked her voicebank I might've just fixed her oto myself on top of being choppy about half of her consonants are streched. Additionally, while it's really not a huge deal, her preutterance settings are also in the incorrect position a lot.

And finally, it's very apparent that nobody at TNT knows a lot of Japanese period; while this may go along with issues with her oto, her hiragana aliases are often times incorrect. For example, many times her "s" phoneme is aliased like a "ts" phoneme, and vice-versa, her "ts" phoneme is also aliased like an "s" phoneme, and that's really just the tip of the iceberg, her oto just features a lot of problems in general, not to mention it's encoded in romaji, which is very unprofessional of a Japanese voicebank

Really it's only redeeming quality is that it has extra vocals intended for Spanish, which sounds awful in a CV voicebank anyways. Spanish just doesn't work in CV very well ( For the record, while I am not fluent in Spanish I can still speak it decently )

Ok so let's recap: Mitsuko Arisa has caused several copyright infringments, originally stole Momo's voicebank, and now has a very bad current voicebank, also, did I mention this was her second bank? Because apparently the first bank was worse than this.

In short, for all these reasons, she does not need an extended fanbase, at least get a well-functioning voicebank before she does
