ConceptEdit

EtymologyEdit

Her name, "Sachiko", was taken from her voice provider, Sachiko Kobayashi.

AppearanceEdit

Her design was done in collaboration with YAMAHA and Sachiko Kobayashi to create a singer who represents Japan.[1]

The calligraphy kanji 幸 (sachi) on the fan was written by Sachiko Kobayashi herself.

Her Obi is worn backwards. This was a style of clothing made popular with the Oiran courtesans.

According to her product page on the VOCALOID Shop, Midori Fuu said that Sachiko's kimono and headdress is based off the Yukitsubaki (snow camellia): the official flower of Niigata Prefecture which is Sachiko Kobayashi's hometown. It also references the title of one of Sachiko Kobayashi's hit songs.

    • Her design is SO HARD to draw I've actually tried drawing it before and it actually turned out ok...after I worked on it for like a week nonstop

    • This has got to be the quickest "unveil to release".
    • Yahama seems to focus on post-release marketing, I wonder how successful the technique will be
