Kizuna Akari (紲星あかり) is a Japanese VOCALOID developed by Vocalomakets and distributed by AH-Software Co. Ltd.. She was released for the VOCALOID4 engine in April 2018. She is also a VOICEROID2 product.
Her voice is provided by Madoka Yonezawa (米澤 円; Yonezawa Madoka), a Japanese voice actress and singer.
The concept for Akari is "She illuminates you all with her voice" (縁で結ばれた人達（星）との紲を灯で照らす).
Her age and height were listed on Vocalomaket's blog. Her official birthday is listed as December 22. As Yukari is based on the moon, Akari is based on "starlight", keeping with the astrological theme.
Her name is a play on "stars" or "light" (星), with "Stars" being a representation of people, her name means "Star Light".
She is themed on the word "Connection" (結), though originally they wanted to go with a play on "bond" due to translation issues with the kanji, there were issues with translating details about her. There were also troubles with getting her name to match the team's themes and ideas for her.
A number of her design details, such as her hair ornament, are based on the design of her predecessor Yuzuki Yukari. However, she does not have a moon rabbit concept and instead references a star, keeping the astrological theme. Her hair is silver, she was purposely designed with the intention of having long hair.
The orange colours come from the phrase "縁で結ばれた人達（星）との紲を灯で照らす". Her design is based on a star shining its light on people and the orange represents the concept of "shining light".
To differentiate from her VOICEROID design, Akari wears headsets instead of hair ornaments for VOCALOID4. She is also wearing a pair of lace-up boots rather than heeled mary-janes.
