Hatsune Miku; an Anime char??

I wish the exam are actually over so that I can sleep for 1 day straight.. The last paper is 2morrow and I hope to do well for it.. Well, nothing is better than to drink Milo in the morning while doing my entry..

Anyway, lets talk about the character my brother make the mini-poster you see on the left side of the blog.

Her name: Hatsune Miku

Who is she?? Well, Truthfully she is not an anime character. She is the first of many characters created for Vocaloid2.

Vocaloid2 is the latest version of voice synthesizing to make songs digitally without the need of real singers. It is created by the collaboration work between


Yes, it's really the Yamaha team.. No kidding..



Well, buying the synthesizer isn't gonna come cheap.. Each set comes at a price of ¥15750 which is equivalent to..

SGD$ 210 !!!

What's better is that they've released the second set which include 2 new characters, Kagamine Rin and Len...

Anyway, back to Hatsune, she became a worldwide phenomenon and alot of people idolized her as if she is an anime character..

Well, what made her really famous is the Levan polka she sang and it is posted on youtube..

The original Polka phenomenon came from someone making the video from Orihime from BLEACH... It is from episode 2 where she is holding the 'leek'.. But the song wasn't nice back then..

The song however comes from a Finnish group named 'Loituma'.. It's quite an interesting music video to watch while listening to the song..

People can come out with anything to entertain us..

So since Hatsune Miku became a worldwide phenomenon online, one Japanese 'zasshi' or Magazine in Japanese made a manga about her.. I've read the first chapter and it's quite nice..

I'm now hoping of new chapters in the coming month and maybe and anime in the future.. Whether she's a character from a synthesizing program, people still gonna treat her as an anime character..

Finishing touches with Infestor51

Finally, I put the last few touches to make my anime blog complete. It took me and my bro, Infestor51.. Ok.. He put in alot more effort to making those banners and side picture.

You know why?? Cause he has finished his semestral exam.. Damn the papers.. My last paper is slated for this friday and I'm kinda worn out to study anything after doing alot of coding for my blog..

At least I've completed it after just releasing it to the public yesterday.. Well the blog used to be in this condition before some finishing touches are made.

Well, collected all the feedbacks from my friends, I began to do some big changes from my old blog which truthfully was alot laggy to load fully..

Well, what can you say.. I put so much spam on my blog since I was just trying out some javascripts and also the music player which users can press the stop button. ( It's better than those who hide in behind their whole blog and users can't even stop it. )

Then theres also the too much advertising from BlogSg and WorldBlog. I think I'm not into those big world blog community yet so I removed them from my blog.

Furthermore theres the archive list which spans almost to half the blog page. I had to get rid of it.. Kinda makes the page loads faster after that.

Well, to prove that my brother really did the job and not some other random dude, heres a screenshot of his work.. I surely need to learn from him to get in the same level with him.. Hmm..

By the way, both pictures that he worked on are not his. Must somehow thank the original scanner/wallpaper-maker for the great pics.

Next on the blog project list is to make the blog loding time faster than the current one. My bro and I thought of splitting the CSS and the Javascript into files and upload them to webhosting sites. From there, my blog can refer to the files and thus load faster.

Well, I don't really care of becoming famous or whatever. I just want to blog so as to kill some free time..

Reactivation of Asuka's Blog

Finally, after some long break from World of Warcraft. I finally rid my addiction of it. So with some free time I'm back to the blogging business.

Instead of just writing about my gaming life and my normal goondu life, Im will also include abit of Anime review in this new blog.

So first up, I would like to talk about my new banner on top of my blog. Thanks to my brother for that. Anyway, I chose the anime pic from a framegrab of 2 animes.

They are:




Ah yes, 2 of the few best animes I've ever watch. So I let my brother whipped out his laptop and use Photoshop to edit the banner and Voila!!

I will keep on reviewing some animes currently on show and maybe a few entry about my slice of life.

Dont worry about me taking candid shots of ppl anymore. I stopped doing those things and will only take pictures of ppl if the person agrees.
