With the release of MEIKO V3 nearing, and the plan to retire the original MEIKO, I feel kind of sad that all of the VOCALOIDs from the first generation will be gone (they're retiring). I dunno... I remember when they first got rid of LE♂N, L♀LA, and MIRIAM (they all have capitals names... odd.), and I thought that it'd never happen to MEIKO or KAITO (capitals names again). I feel kind of "empty" in a sense. I know that they're technically being moved to VOCALOID3, but I feel sad knowing that VOCALOID1 will not exist afterwards. And they also retired the original Miku (and her append), and the rest of the Crypton Media VOCALOIDs will follow in her steps some time in the future. It just feels strange. I'm not grieving or anything, but it's just sad in a weird way. And I think it'll be even more sad when all of the Crypton (Future) Media VOCALOIDs are "moved." It isn't extremely sad because they're still going to exist, but their original voicebanks are being replaced and are gone for good.
In a few days, we'll say goodbye to VOCALOID1 forever (or at the very least, I will).
