Product information
  • Internet Co., Ltd.
  • Avex Management Co., Ltd





Lily (リリィ) is a Japanese VOCALOID developed and distributed by Internet Co., Ltd., done in collaboration with Avex Management Co., Ltd and YAMAHA Corporation, and was initially released in August 2010 for the VOCALOID2 engine. There has since been a second installment developed for the VOCALOID3 engine and dubbed V3 Lily. Her voice is provided by the Japanese female singer, Yuri Masuda (益田 祐里; Masuda Yuri).


She represents Yuri's anime-persona or avatar for anim.o.v.e.'s releases.

Lily is one of the few VOCALOIDs outside of those made by Crypton Future Media to have referenced the most popular Internet Memes. As part of her marketing, two figurines were made, one of them being her with a railway sign that referenced "Ievan Polkka" while the one was her with a bee.


Early speculation on Lily's given name was that it was derived from the name of her voice provider Yuri Masuda, as "yuri" literally means "lily".

She herself was part of the promotion for Yuri of ANIM.O.V.E. and thus most of the merchandise isn't directed at her as a VOCALOID. Regardless, the level of promotion had not been seen outside of the Crypton Future Media VOCALOIDs prior to Lily's sale and although not aimed at the VOCALOID herself, still gave strong support for her software.

Album animove01 Vocaloid Lily

Lily on the CD cover "anim.o.v.e. 01"

"Lily" as a character appears on all of promotions and CD cover arts of the group m.o.v.e for their "Anim.o.v.e." albums. The albums themselves are cover songs of popular anime based music. The character "Lily" was in-use for some time prior to her VOCALOID release and first started appearing in use by Yuri a short while before the the first Anim.o.v.e. CD "Anim.o.v.e. 01" was released on August 18th, 2009 (over a year before her VOCALOID release).

Also, "anim.o.v.e. 02", m.o.v.e album which comes with her anime movie, was released on Aug 25th, 2010. Prizes for her contest were Lily-related promotional goods, also a copy of Internet Co. Ltd.'s Singer Song Writer 9 Professional software. Judges included DJ Lily and MOSH from anim.o.v.e, Masashi Kamibayashi and Kenichiro Yorozu of DTM MAGAZINE, and Hideki Kenmochi of YAMAHA.

A digicomic movie(anime MV) titled "Schwarzgazer", which shows the world where Lily lives[1], has been produced and it will be released with the album "anim.o.v.e 02". The song was sung by m.o.v.e., not by VOCALOIDs. A short version has been officially uploaded on Nicovideo and Youtube. (Nico broadcast, Youtube broadcast) This short movie is unique in approach, as it provides an official English language version side by side with the Japanese version. It depicts Lily and companion "Mosh" as fighters against a virus, equipped with music as their weapon.

A manga of the same name, which is written by Kei, was released together.[2][3]

Lily's avatar was used by Yuri Masuda alongside Mosh and Luna in the PV "Love Shower" feat. Yukari Tamura, the song is in the cover album "anim.o.v.e 03" .
