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