Mo Qingxian VOCALOID4


Mo Qingxian (墨 清弦) is an upcoming Chinese VOCALOID4 to be developed by Shanghai HENIAN Co. Ltd.

Qingxian was a runner up entry to the first "VOCALOID™ CHINA" contest in 2012, held for choosing the design of the first Chinese VOCALOID and was a Vsinger supporting character for four years.[1] On December 8, 2016, Qingxian was confirmed to be in production along with Zhiyu Moke.[2]

HistoryEdit

2012Edit

A contest titled "VOCALOID CHINA" was held to determine the design of the first Chinese VOCALOID which ended on January 3, 2012. On January 17, the winner was revealed to be Yayin Gongyu, the original version of Luo Tianyi, in Shanghai. She was the top ranked design of 5 winning entries for the contest, with one of them being Chou who is now known as Mo Qingxian. Their finalized designs were revealed on March 22. Since then, Qingxian was only used as a promotional character concept.

2013Edit

Due to controversial issues occurring in 2013, Qingxian and the other members of VOCALOID CHINA were unable to become VOCALOIDs for the time being.

2014Edit

In March 2014, Shanghai HENIAN repurchased the character rights for all of the VOCALOID CHINA cast members and relaunched the project as VOCANESE.[3]

2015Edit

On May 29, 2015, during a Q/A Session about Stardust, Shanghai HENIAN confirmed that all VOCANESE characters are their main priority, despite receiving commission works from small groups and other companies.[4]

2016Edit

On December 8, 2016, during a media press, it was stated that Mo Qingxian and Zhiyu Moke were in production.[5]

ConceptEdit

According to the short animation series promoting VOCALOID CHINA, Qingxian is a fashionable high school student. Because of her elegant and mature outlook, she is extremely popular in school. Even though she seems to be a mysterious character, she actually has a slow reaction due to her poor health. She dresses fashionably most of the time, yet her actions show great elegance and traditional beauty. Qingxian loves traditional Chinese literature and is capable of skillfully playing many traditional Chinese instruments. Even though she reacts slowly, she still tries her best to take care of the juniors and people around her. She also has a tendency to become randomly philosophical.[6]

In 2017, according to Shanghai HENIAN's official website, Qingxian is listed as a Taurus.

EtymologyEdit

Her original name was "Chou", however, this was dropped because it was written in a Japanese naming style rather than Chinese.

Her surname, "" (墨), means “black” or “ink” in Chinese. "Qīng" (清) means “clear”, while "Xián" (弦) is a “string of musical instruments”.

AppearanceEdit

The design was originally drawn by HANS, but was refined and redrawn by illustrator ideolo.

Located on Qingxian’s neck, there is a purple charm with a Sanskrit character which represents the "Earth" element, the "Middle" position, the color "yellow", and the "Long Summer" season. This character’s Chinese equivalent is "宫" (Gōng), one of the 5 Traditional Chinese melody characters.[7]

Qingxian’s officially appears in the third episode and the fourth episode mainly revolved around her.

In January 2015, VOCANESE promoted a 2015 calendar celebrating the Year of the Ram. Qingxian appears in the inside content.

Two contests were held in 2016 to allow fans to design a set of Spring/Summer and Autumn/Winter clothes that are based on the Vsinger girls.

In the Chinese fandom, Qingxian is the least popular supporting Vsinger character as she appears in less fanart and PVs than the rest of the supporting cast. In the Western fandom, she is relatively well liked in comparison.
