Another new feature, absolutely and utterly not ripped off in any way, shape or form from TG’s Film Fridays, regardless of what I may have said in the comments section…
So, with this being something new, I figured I’d bring the blog something new too.
HISTORY LESSON TIME! There was recently something of a phenomenon on the internet called Vocaloid, which is a music synthesiser product which replicates auto-tuned singing. Each voice has a character associated with it, the most famous being Miku Hatsune. As I pointed out before in the music vid compilation, auto-tune is a pet peeve of mine but I will admit that when done well it can sound pretty damn good, and the same applies to Vocaloid music. More info on the Vocaloid phenomenon can be found on KnowYourMeme and about Vocaloid itself on Wikipedia. Because I’m not going to bore you further with history.
Well, not on the subject matter anyway. There’s an image site called danbooru (which I won’t be linking to – bear with me here~) full of fanmade artwork of (mostly female) characters from various anime, manga and videogames. The appropriateness for work varies considerably and if a kink exists, there’s probably some artwork that fulfils it.
As such it should probably be very obvious where I’m going with this. If it’s not, here’s the jist of it – my favourite pics of the Vocaloid characters in rule-compliant WAM-related scenarios. First, Miku herself:
I’m sure you’ve all got plenty of questions like “why Vocaloid?” and “why is there more of Miku than the others?”. The answers to those are “because I didn’t feel like reposting, I’ve not seen a good video as of late and the Rihanna/Katy Perry cake fight seems to have been a red herring” and “because there’s just more art of her” respectively. Next week I’ll be bringing some actual singers and/or musicians (in the literal sense – I’m not implying that Vocaloid music doesn’t count as real music).
I don’t take credit for any of these pics, just for posting them here.
