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.


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.


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


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]


  • Merli; Older sister
  • Violet (Chinese name: Zi Yan); A virtual Chinese idol who often appeared alongside Aoki Lapis in VR concerts and has a surprising relationship to the fairy due to her design.[3]

VOCALOID ReleasesEdit


On August 10, 2013, Lapis was shown in a demonstration using another synthesizer called "ToSpeak". Her voice was also shown at the "Comic Market 84", an event held at Osaki West Station shopping centre.[4][5]
