Aoki Lapis VOCALOID3

Aoki Lapis (蒼姫ラピス) is a Japanese VOCALOID developed and is distributed by the YAMAHA Corporation, and was created in collaboration with i-style Project. She was released in April 2012 for the VOCALOID3 engine. Her voice is provided by a contest winner, Japanese female, Nako Eguchi (江口菜子; Eguchi Nako). She is a "Character Voice" type VOCALOID.

ConceptEdit

Aoki Lapis is a fairy who has no memory of who she is.[1] She belongs to a race of fairies capable of transforming music into power and her voice is said to have the power to give life when she sings.

EtymologyEdit

Aoki Lapis is named after the semi-precious gemstone Lapis lazuli because of her color palette. "Aoki" (her surname) means "Blue Princess".

AppearanceEdit

The large gem she has on her head is a Paraíba Tourmaline, an extremely rare and precious gemstone. Her design is "light" in contrast with her sister, Merli.[2]

RelationsEdit

  • Merli: Lapis' older sister.
  • Violet (紫嫣 Zi Yan): A virtual Chinese idol who often appeared alongside Aoki Lapis in VR concerts because the companies that owned Lapis and Violet were all related to a company named Ima Group. Previously, it was always suspected that Lapis' image was being used illegally.[3]
