Hey everyone! I’m actually alive, believe it or not! (which shouldn’t be too surprising for anyone who follows my tumblr). I havent had time to review anything (or even really watch anything) because of moving to Japan and all but I took all the photos for this review before I left Australia and decided to assemble the review here when I got some decent time. This review really should have been done months ago,this figure was released at the end of January… but… oh well.
It’s been a pretty eventful year in the Vocaloid scene- a slew of new Vocaloids, Project Diva 2nd, Hatsune Miku’s second live concert, KAT-TUN’s alleged plagiarism of Megurine Luka(AVTechno’s to be precise) song DYE, Miku being mentioned in news papers and tv shows around the globe, the release of the ‘Append’ software for Miku and Rin/Len, and the incredibly exciting announcement that Kaito and Meiko are being revived for the Vocaloid2 engine with something like an Append as well. And of course an absolutely massive amount of new songs.
This post is mainly for me to show off my favourite from each Vocaloid this year, as well as the best PV and best song of 2010 overall. So as we step into the Year of the Rabbit, let’s take a look at Moeronpan’s Tops of 2010.
Man it’s been a while since I’ve managed to get a figure review in; despite the fact that I have two earlier released figures I still havent reviewed, not to mention the 2nd Hetalia One Coin figure set (which are currently shipping so expect a review for them in a week or so).
I only really got this magazine in order to get the Black Rock Shooter DVD that came with it, but I might as well review this magazine because I can’t read it. (*doesn’t know any Japanese*)
Warning: Image heavy!
Nico Video seems to have been hit with a sudden wave of Awesome in the past two weeks, and a notable spike in GUMI PVs as well (never mind that her birthday was over a week before this…). This post has more videos than normal because of this…but also because this will be the last PV post for a few months due to me going back to university and limited internet and all that.
In vaguely-related-to-Vocaloid news, the Black Rock Shooter OVA is out and people have started to blog about it, it seems. I won’t get my copy for a little while longer (I’m getting the issue of Animedia it comes free with, which ships a bit later than the other two magazines it’s with) but I’ll be reviewing it. Provided I can tear myself away from Project Diva 2nd.
That’s right! And to be more precise, 62,817 hits as of writing this post. I probably should have made one of these ‘milestone’ posts at the 50 000 mark, but I never got the chance to, and I may as well do it now before I don’t have the chance to again. But yeah. Basically, on 62,817 separate occasions there are people who have looked at some part of Moeronpan; and considering this blog is just about a year old that’s actually rather impressive in my humble opinion. Hit the cut as I ramble a little about the blog and what seems to be its most popular pages, intercepted by various Pixiv pictures I happen to like.
Just as a reminder, Moeronpan is still looking for contributors, particularly for the upcoming new anime season as I probably wont be able to do many first impressions myself for that time of the year.(being when I restart university) People interested in helping in any way can refer to the end of this post, after the cut.
Whew, this is a little late. There’s been quite a few awesome songs lately (Hatsune Miku Append was released a few weeks ago after all) but the really impressive MADs weren’t quite so thick and fast. There were, of course, as usual, the attention-grabbers though.
