Today marks the day of my 1 year anniversary of becoming a fan of Vocaloid, and so I decided to finally make an account on the wiki. So much has passed since that time, and I continue to find more and more songs that I love. At first, I thought that Vocaloid will just be another fleeting interest (I lose interest in things VERY easily) but an entire year tells me it's something that will stick for a long time. I'm not new to the fandom, but I am new to using the wikia so I won't be able to edit pages for a while (since I still don't know how to edit properly).
Now onto the story of how I became a Vocaloid fan:
My first encounter with Vocaloid was actually all the way back in early 2009. I was an ignorant, stubborn teen who refused to do further research. At that time, I only knew about Miku and the Kagamines and I thought they sounded like robotic dying chipmunks on helium (no offense to anyone who likes them, I promise that I don't think of them that way anymore!). Because of that, I was anti-Vocaloid for a very long time. Had I known about Sweet Ann back then, I would have been a fan but I had no idea that Engloids existed. The CFM Vocaloids were the reason that I avoided everything Vocaloid for so many years (which I regret, looking back). Even now, I am still not very fond of the "Big 8" because most of them have high pitched, unrealistic voices.
I admit that I was still hesitant about listening to Vocaloid music last year. It was only by accident that I rediscovered Vocaloid while doing a "related videos journey" on Youtube. However, this encounter was much more pleasant. I had stumbled upon VY2v3's Cendrillon demo, and I thought the voices and singing were very nice. I decided to Google more about VY2v3, which I thought was a stage name. To my surprise, it was a Vocaloid and my first thought was "Wow, Vocaloid sure has changed!" Through this accidental discovery, I decided I should actually do some research. I felt terrible when I found out that there was more to Vocaloid than just Miku and the Kagamines during my first encounter. Now I know better, and there many Vocaloids that I love. VY2 will always have a special place in my heart since that is the Vocaloid that got me interested. Some other Vocaloids that I like include: Sweet Ann, VY1, Yukari, Oliver, Kiyoteru, Yuki, Avanna, Iroha, Yohioloid, Big Al, Merli, Flower, Dex, Daina (I might be missing a few more).
I'm glad to finally interact with the fandom, and hopefully I'm here to stay. Let's get along!
My question to you is : How did you become a fan of Vocaloid?
