Got home from the beach and it was lovely, and I get to see even more VOCALOID updates which is nice! Also plan on finishing up a couple song pages which are on my to-do list among other things. Got a tan and some burns and salt water up my nose, but we caught a crab, saw a deer, caught a dead crab, saw three little beach cats and I finished another playthrough on Fire Emblem: Awakening, so hey, all is well!
In other news;
It looks like Natasha Allegri did Ruby's final design, correct me if I'm wrong, but after being a massive fan of her art it looks an awful lot like her style. I hope she did it because again, I'm a big fan// Is it just me, or does Ruby look a little angry in the picture? Chunkier than the concept art too, not that it's a bad thing. I love how shiny it all looks, which is nice.
If anybody could direct me to the Sachiko Free Trial please set me up with a link! I'm dying to try her out because I heard her demo and I fell in love. It's a little more robotic than I would have guessed, but I'm sure that's due to the fact that she's both mature and powerful beyond understanding.
Dex and Daina will have alternate designs which is cool, for those of you who were turned off by the kemonomimi aspect like I was (though it's started to grow on me now), and Uni's going to have multiple banks which is interesting! Though it does call to question whether Dr. Yun had that planned from the beginning, along with the V4 conversion, or he's just deciding to do these things now because people have expressed a lot of interest. It's certainly curious, and I'm wondering what the other banks will be. Bilingual maybe, or possibly "appends" of sorts?
I'm so dang excited for V4 now, all my doubts cast aside. And dang man Akira's getting his own bank released too! His boxart looks amazing which is great, and I know that he'll be popular given he's a new, MALE vocal with some pretty solid power behind his voice. And of course the hype is still real for Yuezheng Longya. Longya is wonderful to me and I am so happy he's up for the first male Chinese VOCALOID!
Last but not least, Zhanyin Lorra has sort of just disappeared in the updates/news category? I love her to death and tbh I was looking forward to her more than I was Ling. I'm disappointed/concerned we haven't heard anything in forever!
Ah well. I hope you all had a good time while I was gone, it seems the drama's died down a bit! *cough*saveforzephyrbutwedonttalkaboutthat* ( ͡~ ͜ʖ ͡°)
