Vocaloid Weekly 51 - Road-Rolled by Kagamine Twins

With the weekends taken up by the Smexy September Figure Shoot, I had to delay this entry about Vocaloid Weekly #51.. The shoot was fun but since it was a test for the coming October event (will be revealed soon), I think that it was a success, although most of us who were there didn't really bring a beach-related figurines.. -_-;;

Well, in this week Vocaloid Weekly, we get to see more songs coming in as per usual.. But what you didn't expect is that most of the new songs are actually by the Kagamine Twins.. Yes, you heard me right.. And the weird part is that the Kagamine Twins' songs such as 【鏡音リン】Transmit【オリジナル10】 or 鏡音リン・レン・ミクでオリジナル「きえないひとみ。」PV付き are actually better than some of the songs sung by Hatsune Miku or Kaito..

Without further ado, lets take a look at this week Vocaloid Weekly #51:

Part A:

Part B:

Moving on to some of the songs in Vocaloid Weekly #51:

29 - 【初音ミク】憎悪の欲望【オリジナル】: A very fast-paced songs which will leave you breathless if you try to sing it.. This song by Miku is very catchy and very mesmerizing.. Although it is only 2 mins 45 seconds long, the song is indeed very nice to listen to.. I'm adding this as one of my ringtones.. :P
26 - 【鏡音レン】悪ノ召使【中世物語風オリジナル】: A romantic song sang by the Kagamine Twins.. It pictures the love between Kagamine Rin and Kagamine Len.. Well, don't put it as incest, think of it as brother-sister love... Anyway, the duet by the both of them makes this song very lovely and entice you to continue listening to it completely.. I do love the background pictures, very nice indeed.. ^^
25 - 初音ミクdeオリジナル曲「僕ラノセカイ」-Ver.1.0(旧版): A rock song by Hatsune Miku.. The beat is awesome and I love how the drum is played.. And Miku sounds nice singing this song, I must thank the person who made this song.. ^^ This song is perfectly fit for an anime OP truthfully.. I like this song and I added it to my mp3 collection..
17 - 【初音ミク】BRIGHT RAiN【オリジナル】: A very beautiful trance song by Hatsune Miku.. The song is very catchy while the beat to the song is great.. A hip song for those who like something to dance along.. This song can also cheer a person up.. I got stuck to this song after listening to it.. Its now played like 200 times since its showcase on Vocaloid Weekly #51.. ^^
12 - 【VOCALOID数十人分】 春日通り 【オリジナル】: A very lovely song sung by the original Vocaloid family, including Gackpoid.. The slow but mesmerizing song is well made plus it is a so-called "family" song, it is a rarity to have that.. I do love the picture of the whole gang together.. A very memorable song indeed.. ^^

Now let us move on to the TOP 3 songs in this week Vocaloid Weekly:

3rd Place - 初音ミクオリジナル曲 「Θ」: As stated in last week Vocaloid Weekly, I still find this song abit weird.. I seriously didn't find this song catchy or interesting.. The instruments playing in the background are rather annoying in a sense.. Other than that, the girl is just cute.. xD
2nd Place - VOCALOIDでニコニコ動画流星群【完成版】: As expected for this song since its been on TOP spot for the past couple of days.. But I don't mind, this song is still nice to listen to even after many times due to its variety of songs in it.. I also like the pictures and animations inside it as it somewhat fits each different type of songs perfectly except for the "Yatta!" song.. xD Well, you never know it might go back up again in rankings? ^^
1st Place - 【鏡音リン】Transmit【オリジナル10】: Congratulations to this song sung by Kagamine Rin.. This song is great to listen to and its the song is superbly well-made.. I love the chorus as it is very catchy and the tune will let you enjoy the song even when you are feeling down.. It is good to see one of the Kagamine Twins song in the TOP spot after such a long time.. Who knows, this song will stay on for another week? You never know.. ^^

It is a pity the new songs by Hatsune Miku and Kaito were abit disappointing.. I expected them to be good as previous Hatsune Miku and Kaito songs.. But I don't mind such disappointment since there are such good songs still in the rankings like 【初音ミク】BRIGHT RAiN【オリジナル】 and 初音ミクdeオリジナル曲「僕ラノセカイ」-Ver.1.0(旧版).. Those songs are awesome..

Well, lets take a look at this week Top Winner & 1 best song of the week:

17 - 【初音ミク】BRIGHT RAiN【オリジナル】

1st Place - 【鏡音リン】Transmit【オリジナル10】

Smexy September Figure Shoot

Looking at my whole figure collection, I was thinking real hard.. "What figure should I bring for the figure shoot?" was my initial thought.. I didn't know what to bring for the latest Team Blue figure shoot..

Well, at least we decided on the location a few days before the figure shoot.. We've decided to do so at Sembawang Beach at Sembawang Park.. Its located at the northern part of Singapore with a great view of Johore.. ^^
Back to figurine, the reason for me deciding so long was that I didn't own any beach-related figurines (I want to but its due to my parents not liking those one bit..) since the theme was "Beach" this September..

However, since I do not own any beach-related figures, I've decided to bring along Figma Hatsune Miku along..
Yeah, even though I didn't have the time to review her yet, I still brought her along to the shoot because she is more suitable than the other figurines/figmas I have at home..

Another reason is that Squee aka Sam brought along the Detroit Metal City (DMC) gang to the figure shoot.. So bringing along Figma Miku with her accessories suits both of us well.. ^^
While the DMC gang prep themselves for a concert later, Figma Miku sing up a few songs for us, borrowing a DMC guitar in the process.. xD
While Miku and the DMC gang prep fully for a concert, I took the liberty to walk to where Jon aka Wcloudx, Panther and DS were.. They were taking some beach shots with their figurines..

One of them is Al Azif, brought by Jon..
And here we have Dead Snake's Nendo Puchi Frog Mikuru.. Kawaii~~
Then we have Panther's Mitsuki Hayase.. Very smexy indeed.. ^^
Chibihien brought his figurine along for the figure shoot too; Reinforce Zwei.. Very MOE indeed..
Another shot of Reinforce Zwei..
Now it is time for...


After a few minutes of preparations, they are ready to rock out with all their might.. We found a stage big enough for the concert to begin..
We have the Hatsune Miku together with the DMC gang; Johannes Krauser II the leader of DMC, Camus the drummer and Alexander Jagi, DMC's bassist..
We could see Miku being the lead singer for the day, raising one of her hands high while holding the mic stand..
On the left we could see Alexander Jagi rocking on with his Bass guitar..
We have Camus playing greatly with the drums.. ^^
While on the right we have Johannes Krauser II singing along with Hatsune Miku.. ^^
The Team Blue members were eagerly away taking pictures of the concert.. Nobody wants to miss such good concert.. ^^
From left; Jon(Wcloudx), Chibihien (In black), Dead Snake and Sam(Squee)..

More shots of the concert..
Nendo Puchi Frog Mikuru also joined in the fun, much to the dismay of Panther.. xD
Hatsune Miku then did the unthinkable, she went upside down and sang another song for us..
It was not only awesome, it was totally superb.. We didnt expect Miku to do that anyway.. The good thing is is that the mic that she is holding on still stays when she went upside-down..
Even though the concert was fun, it was abit annoying to Nanoha who was passing by.. She didnt like the music so much that she aimed her Blaster at the concert..
A close-up shot of the target pointer..
Although Nanoha readied herself for the attack, the guards came in the nick of time and arrested her..

Well, more pictures of the concert..
Following DMC's tradition, it was nice listening to Miku doing her "10 MIKUs per second" -_-;;
Due to Miku going upside-down for so long, the DMC gang joined in the fun..
So did Mikuru-chan.. xD
Wow, we didnt expect this to happened.. Looks what Miku has caught.. o.O
A Close-Up of the incident.. -_-;;
Well, the concert must go on.. Miku didnt seemed that bothered about the snake at the *Ehemm*.. xD
The whole shot of the Detroit Miku City.. ^^
After that the concert ends with loud applause from the crowd, including the 8 of us that were there.. Anyway, the snake was caught by the pest control and brought to the zoo.. No animal was harm during the concert..

Before the whole group left, they did a signature move;
Well, you guessed it right.. It's the..
Well, it has been a fun time at the Sembawang Beach.. We were there from 4pm - 7pm.. The 3 hours worth of figure shoots + the concert was well worth it.. The pictures weren't much but hey at least we get to enjoy it..

For more pictures of the figure shoot you can visit my Photobucket album here.. Or you can visit Panther's site for his figure review of Mitsuki Hayase here..

Hatsune Miku Cosplay (HQ)

A week has passed since the CosCon @ Games Convention Asia 2008, I thought that I would have to wait for a few more months to the AFA08 to maybe catch a glimpse of a Miku cosplayer.. But my wait is over..For now at least.. ^^

Thanks to MikuFan, I found some High Quality (HQ) photos of Hatsune Miku cosplayed by Ibara-san.. Click on the pictures to view the enlarged version of them..
A very well-made and detailed costume I have ever seen.. From her main outfit to her sleeves, all very detailed indeed..

The small details like the “01 Hatsune Miku” tattoo on her arm make this one almost perfect... ^^
I wonder how much does the wig cost? It looks very smooth, it looks so real.. And it's hair colour is almost similar to the original Hatsune Miku's hair colour..
This is my favourite picture among the rest in this entry..

Pictures are taken from Kirinon Graphica who I like to visit once in awhile.. Their blog is filled with pictures of other cosplayers cosplaying a variety of characters.. Do check out their site..

I love it when someone cosplay as Hatsune Miku.. Usually they put in alot of time adding details onto their costume..

So what character do you love to see the most being cosplayed as? And which person do you want to see cosplaying that character? :D
