Lily originally appeared on the cover of the CD "anim.o.v.e. 01" released on Aug 19th, 2009 before the announcement of her VOCALOID development. Lily was introduced as "Code Name: Lily" on DTM MAGAZINE published in May, 2010. The voice source is the lead vocalist of m.o.v.e., Yuri Masuda. The idea of the developing a VOCALOID based on Yuri's voice occurred, as one of the members was a user of VOCALOID. The illustration of Lily's VOCALOID was used on the Anim.o.v.e album while the voicebank was in development.
Two official demos, "SUPER SONIC DANCE Lily Ver. With G" and "Gamble Rumble Lily Ver With G" have been released. Gackpo Camui is also used in both of them. "SUPER SONIC DANCE" and "Gamble Rumble" are songs released by m.o.v.e.
Internet Co., Ltd. is the distributor and also provides her support for the users. This was also announced by t-kimura (Takashi Kimura), once a member and now a music producer of m.o.v.e, on his Twitter. Lily was published on August 25, 2010, and was designed by KEI. The data for the voice was created by sampling the voice of Yuri Masuda, a Japanese vocalist of the Japanese musical group m.o.v.e.
At the end of 2015, it was announced that from March 31st 2016, VOCALOID2 was being retired and no new serial codes were be issued by Yamaha.

|Software issues as noted:|
The demo gave users the ability to test Lily's upcoming software for 30 days for free. This allowed users to test to see if they liked her voicebank enough for purchase. It was issued with DTM magazines September 2010 issue, it was also issued with the ANIM.O.V.E 2nd album.
Some users reported Lily's demo voicebank had a pronunciation problem; she could not carry the "i"s (い) over two notes. Her "o"s (お) could get distorted if followed by "n" (ん). Another reported problem was that her consonants could not be pronounced if left on the end. Due to its wide distribution, it was relatively easy to get a hold of and ended up being cracked quite quickly.
