    Alright, here's the new list:
    1: Gumi- Still my favorite, and worth the challenge. Official website cost: $192. On Amazon: $170. Problem: Amazon doesn't ship out of Japan, and I think Internet Co. doesn't either. Also, I can't find if there's a download version.
    2: Iroha- Still getting over her design(I'm sure I'll find a better version to use), but her voice is amazing. Official cost: $192. On Amazon: $150. Still can't find where to buy her on the official website.

    3: Sonika: Vocaloid Wikia has information on overcoming her glitches. Cheapest price: $99.99. Definitely getting her if I can't find a way to get a Japanese Vocaloid by mid-November.

    4: VY1 Mizki?: I know, I wasn't thinking about her, but she's cheapest on Amazon if anyone knows how to work around the no shipping outside of Japan.

    Consider:
    -what you want to hear
    -information in my descriptions
    -the order

    Iroha- Total win, but the Hello Kitty-ness bugs me.

    You shouldn't let the appearance of the character bug you, as it's the voice that matters more. Her voice is absolutely lovely and would compliment Luka and Gumi very well.

    Iroha.

    Her voice is so mature. Who cares about her appearance.

    Iroha. She's got a good voice, but more importantly she's best for beginners (since her voice has vibrato even with vibrato disabled, preventing flat-notes). I would not recommend Lily or Gumi, as while I love them, they are not good for beginners at all.

    Just a note, you cannot install Miku Append without Miku installed.

    I personally really like Gumi. Smile But you need to decide based on how excited you are about the vocaloid, 'cause the last thing you want to do is buy it and then feel like you're trapped with it.

    Ooooh, you should test Leon ^__^ I think it's one of the best Engloids (and maybe one with the less strong accent)

    Sonika may be one of the cheapest Vocaloid2 if the discount is still on.

    For the 1st rate ones you say I think I would choose the Kagamines as Rin is nice and, well, you have two for one.

    I checked all the prices I could find. Sonika and Prima are both $99.99 at the official websites, Leon and Lola are about $180 on non-official websites(what happened to the Zero-G homepage?), and Iroha is roughly $192, but I can't find where to purchase her.

    As for Iroha's built-in vibrato, that's not something I had thought about. How would you go about adding vibrato to other voices?

    You right-click the note, choose a vibrato setting. Usually it's done by default but all notes are flat when you import a UST or midi, meaning you have yo do it for every individual note unlike in UTAU. Very tedious. But Iroha has a smooth vibrato even without functions enabled (though function enabled is still helpful). She's also clear and smooth by default even with a bad VSQ or UST.

    If you're looking for good Lily users, I'd better not. XD I'm probably going to start out failing. Hard.

    Also, thanks, Aster S.

    You can pirate Vocaloid 1 editor too.

    So don't encourage pirating. I myself wish I could buy the original editor.

    No Vocaloid is free.

    I'm gonna suggest Iroha. She's great for beginners, and her voice has a great range and sound. Also, designs don't matter.

    Lily and Sonika require heavy editing, so I'm against those. Both can sound beautiful with the editing though. (Matt9five's Sonika config, Green Green Euglena's producer's Sonika config, the person who made Lily sing Gravity's Lily config)

    Now that I’ve found the actual version of Lily has many of its bugs fixed from the demo, I have a much better opinion of her. Still, I hear she still sounds robotic, so…eh.

    I still think Gumi is very unwieldy and not worth using as a beginner. I still heartily recommend Iroha. If you don’t like her Vocaloid design, then just stick with the Kittyler one.

    If you hate both, then you can just abandon it. A lot of Nico users see her as a girl with a ponytail.

    AH ships only through Amazon.jp, but it does indeed ship overseas. Her entry is here.
