    Do you think it's a good idea to make an UTAUloid sing with an accent?

    In case of my UTAUloid, Chilean accent isn't very noticeable ^^;
    But I like Aline's Brazilian accent :D so cute!
    and well...many times depends of the voice...

    No. Just no.
    It is DAMN annoying hearing English Ru and Ro and such. If you can't pronounce the R just say the L. Also hearing U as OE (like in shoe) is annoying as well. Sorry but that is just my opinion. ^^'

    yeah that's true, English pronunciation is really different from the Japanese one.
    In case of Spanish, they're most equal...the only difference is the pronunciation of "j" and the fact that "b" and "v" has the same sound.

    It's easy for me to pronounce proper Japanese since German is very similiar to Japanese ;o The only difference is the "u" and "z" and a bit ther "r" which is softer in German.

    I don't like English r's either, though it's very cute with Ebi's voice for example.

    Someone said once that Brazilian Portuguese is the Western language more similar in pronounciation to Japanese... But I don't really agree, as our accent is too strong, while Japanese accent is soft XD

    And to me, few people can pull off the English-like accent. Keito is one of them, makes me want to hug Yuuta :3

    yeah! Yuuta's accent is adorable <3
    and I don't think it has a similar pronounciation xD Brazilian accent sounds more like a mix between Spanish and French accent.

    ACCENTS ARE GREAT.
    And I'm not sure about the difference between a japanese "U" and a English "U" (as on Shoe). -_-; So I try to do it right, but if it's wrong, my bad. (Though honestly it sounds right to me)...
    YESSSSS I LOVE ENGLISH AND JAPANESE ACCENTS.
    In UTAU, I don't know yet. Probably.

    Have you heard Zanda's Meltdown? Everything was so great except of the U sound that was...too english?

    And me, I think Miku's accent when she speaks English is pretty cute...

    Pfff, I think all the non-English accents are adorable! As long as it doesn't sound like, ah... what's the word I'm looking for--? As long as it doesn't sound like you're trying to speak English when recording the sounds for a Japanese bank, I don't mind accents.

    Especially the cute hispanic accents... ;A; *creepy*

    Ummm ummm
    Ye ye--

    I really don't think deciding wether you record with or without an accent is your choice, if you're recording a language you don't speak. ;u; ;;;;;

    Like, no matter how hard I try, I'll always pronounce japanese words with a korean and english accent, since those are my languages of birth.

    Also, using the english L in pronouncing the whole E. Asian "r" thing-- *A*;;;
    It's just as noticeable to korean speakers when somebody uses the english L as it is when they use the english R, both of them would get you made fun of in Korea, so I assume its the same for Japanese speakers too. @^@;;

    Ugh, accents.

    At the time of recording Fuyu's ACT3, I decided to try and give Fuyu an Australian-ish accent with some of her English sounds - her "or" sounds have no emphasis on the letter r whatsoever. Her "er" and "ar" sounds still have some emphasis though. So I dunno. And I just gave out a bit of information on Fuyu's new bank.

    I remember all those times I had to record the "r" sounds for my UTAUs (you know... ra, ri, etc). Midway through I kept forgetting how to pronounce it Dx In my opinion, English "r" sounds in a Japanese voicebank don't sound very professional (and I should know, remember Kii's ACT1? Dx)

    ^I agree that english r's in place of Japanese r's are not very professional. I recorded my r's as l's because when I listen to Valshe singing, I really like her Japanese r's... which sound like l's. But I can't really do a Japanese r, so I'd rather go with l (which IMO, is better than a hard r).

    But I also think, if you want your UTAU to have an accent of any kind, let them be. But then r thing would be really iffy if so.

    *shrug* really, it's up to you.

    It's very noticeable to some non-speakers as well. Tony's "ra"-set is actually a very strong L, for example, there's a difference XD

    I left Aline's accent kinda on purpose, since she was supposed to be trilingual and stuff... But I failed on the "ri". No matter what, I can't speak the weak Portuguese "ri" properly (it comes kinda L-ish), and people here kinda make fun of me because of that T_T

    I am so anal about this, and I can spot it pretty easily due to working with Engloids.

    Hence;

    "lRu FUCK rrlluuue FUCK llrruFUCKDAMMIT"

    It takes me a good half hour to record my basic R sounds ;__;
