Sakine Meiko (咲音メイコ) is an officially recognized derivative of MEIKO. The term "Derivative" is used here to describe a fanmade Vocaloid character that is based on an already existing character.

ConceptEdit

She was conceived through the efforts of Producers working with MEIKO's voice, When many producers wondered if MEIKO was an older-sounding vocal, or younger-sounding vocal. (They quickly set on KAITO's voice since he sounded older.) Because of this, MEIKO had become forgotten because of Hatsune Miku's popularity, leaving her behind. MEIKO in particular did not have the younger sounding voice of the released VOCALOID2 voicebanks released at the time and therefore was not as appealing as they were to the Vocaloid Otaku based fandom. Meiko Sakine was established by Nanameue-P to push the limits of the Vocaloid software to make MEIKO sound younger. Her official setting is "the MEIKO who came into the music trend in the age of 16" (i.e., she is not a younger MEIKO variation but MEIKO when she was young) and Nanameue-P is "the producer who rediscovered MEIKO in her youth". She was later made famous by the PV "Honey" featuring her and other derivatives such as Hachune Miku, Yowane Haku and Akita Neru, as well as the UTAU Kasane Teto alongside official Crypton Vocaloids.

EtymologyEdit

Her name of Sakine 咲音, literally means "Blooming Sound" and has the same pronunciation as 先音, "Preceding Sound," i.e., she precedes Hatsune Miku. Her family name is sometimes shared among her other fanmade "siblings", such as Meito in particular.

AppearanceEdit

Sakine Meiko's design is reminiscent to that of MEIKO. She has light brown hair styled into teased bob. She has a side swept bangs and her eyes are brown and large, done in a style similar to illustrator Kei. On her left upper arm is the black mark "00 MEIKO", its significance is currently unexplained, though it may likely be homage to MEIKO's mark being CRV1.

Her top is red-orange sleeveless crop top with a black hem. The rest of her attire follows the same color scheme. She has a red choker, wears fingerless gloves with computerized print, a frilled skirt with a white belt, and another belt that hangs on her left side. She wears light brown boots with white fur trim, and has headphones.

Voice PortrayalsEdit

Unfortunately, Nanameue-P has not disclosed the voice configuration so far, though theoretically, she carries a younger voice (and perhaps higher-pitched voice as well) of MEIKO.

In Project DIVA (PD), Sakine Meiko is an available character in the PSP game, Hatsune Miku ~Project Diva~ and again as a playable character in its sequels. If the player does not choose her for a long time, she will get angry.

TriviaEdit

  • It is common to refer to Sakine Meiko as her namesake, or simply Sakine. The original MEIKO is sometimes identified through this name as well, being the personification of MEIKO when she was young.
  • There is also another fanmade who's name is pronounced similar to Sakine Meiko, and belonging to the Hagane group as Sakerune Meiko. The only connection these two share is being derived from MEIKO.
  • Some fans think that Sakine Meiko is actually MEIKO's younger sister.
  • Her appearance in the Project Diva games are slightly different from Daigoman's design.
