Chika's character status
Reaction

Chika's main problems when first released were centered around her lack of distinction from fellow Internet co., Ltd Vocaloid Gumi. The two shared many traits that caused some producers to hold back as there seemed little "new" in the Chika voice that wasn't already covered in the V3 Megpoid range. Another factor was that Kokone had been release based on the Gumi voice in Feb 2014, so releasing a second Gumi-like voice in the same year resulted in some lost interest.

The other issue was, that VOCALOID4's existence was leaked the same month of her release in October 2014 and later released in December, 2014. As a VOCALOID3 vocal, she lacked access to the new features such as GWL and had no second voice to use to access XSY, furthering her issues with Megpoid comparisons. In terms of quality, the release of the new engine saw the overall quality bar move upwards and any improvements Chika had over any other VOCALOID3 vocals was short lived. As a result of the ill-timed release of her package, focus fell on VY1v4 and the (then) newly announced upcoming Megurine Luka V4X packages.

Impact

While acknowledging that an increased amount of triphones does not necessary result in a smoother voice, it was stated that they were working to increase the triphone amount of their Vocaloids. This was spoken at a VOCALOID4 conference soon after its release.[2] While not directed at Chika herself, it is notable that her voice marked the line between the old VOCALOID3 voices and the Internet co., Ltd. voices that followed her in VOCALOID4.

Miscellaneous

In 2015 a survey was made based on the popularity of VOCALOIDs on website Nico Video. For the year 2014, Chika was the 42nd most popular VOCALOID and the least popular new VOCALOID of 2014.[3]

Achievements
  • Has the most triphones out of all Internet Co. VOCALOID3s.
