SF-A2 miki VOCALOID2


SF-A2 codename miki (SF-A2 開発コード miki), is a Japanese VOCALOID developed and distributed by AH-Software Co. Ltd., and was released in December 2009 for the VOCALOID2 engine. Her voice is provided by the Japanese female singer, Miki Furukawa (フルカワミキ / 古川 美季; Furukawa Miki).

ConceptEdit

EtymologyEdit

Often shortened to just "SF-A2 miki", her codename of "miki" comes from her provider's name "Miki Furukawa". In Japanese, 'codename' or 'development code' translates as 'kaihatsu koudo'. The meaning of the "SF-A2" part of her name has never been stated.

AppearanceEdit

According to information that came from the 2012 redesign, miki was designed to look like she was made out of a inorganic material and was conceptualized as an android. Her body is designed to look like that of a child, but also give her the overall appearance of a young teenage female. Though she is an android, she is covered in muscles made from various materials such as carbon nanotubes, but were made loose to give a mild deformed look about them. Having an immature-looking body allowed her to appear younger then she looks, similar to how Miku and Rin could do the same.[1]
