    MIKU ENGLISH VOICE BANK CONFIRMED FOR BRAWL Empty MIKU ENGLISH VOICE BANK CONFIRMED FOR BRAWL

    Post by Zeny on Fri Oct 08, 2010 9:53 pm

    A few hours ago, the CEO of Crypton Future Media has announced at his New York Anime Festival/Comicon panel that Miku will be getting an English voice bank if one condition is met:

    A MINIMUM OF 39,390 USERS MUST LIKE THE OFFICIAL MIKU FACEBOOK PAGE.

    The URL he gave on the projector was http://on.fb.me/cB1xga

    Also, the CEO also said that a male vocaloid was in fact in development, but nothing further was said.

    Also, I asked what he thought of UTAU, and his response was "I support similar products like Vocaloid because it helps expand the market and makes more people aware of Vocaloid", or something along those lines.

    Finally, there will be a Hatsune Miku concert tomorrow at 11:45am in room 1E03 for those attending New York Comicon this weekend.

    My little brother managed to get his autograph, and I even got a photo with him, though I'll only show people in private upon request because I don't want everyone seeing me.

    Last but not least, Rin/Len appends are due December 2010.

    EDIT: URL FIXED

    TY MISHA

    OPERATION MIKUCASH IS A-GO

    Zeny.

    This is totally fake.

    Anything with the facebook petition is fake.

    The only source for this is the facebook petition WHICH. IS. FAKE.

    Fujita Saki cannot speak English. Keep that in mind. Also keep in mind that Luka's English was a business failure.

    Also, I would not like an English Miku. It'd be another Luka.

    Unless...you were the one who got the info yourself. Then I'd accept it (but not like it).

    By the way...Male CV04 is old news, isn't it?

    Read updated post plzkthx

    By the way.
    I am not pleased.

    Miku is seriously Crypton's mascot. I like her, but they need to concentrate on their other Vocaloids...
    And this English bank...is gonna be worse than Luka's. OTL

    I am interested in CV04 though

    Right, I know it's hard news to swallow from someone who doesn't have a video camera on hand, but Misha was also there and can vouch for me, Aster.

    I accept it.

    I'm not happy.

    I don't like this.

    This is
    1) Overendorsement of Miku. Yes, I like Miku, yes, I think developments are good, no, Crypton, pleae don't make her your goddamned mascot.
    2) Asakawa Yuu can speak English. Thus Luka English was born, and it sounds totally off. Fujita Saki cannot speak English. I know they can force her, but having lived among Asians for years has me know that it would be nigh impossible to even get near the phoenemes.
    3) I've never liked those "this-many-likes" facebook campaigns. Let's face it, Miku is really popular, you have enough support.

    The only things I liked about this announcement are 1) confirmation of Rin/Len Append date and 2) another reference to CV04 so we know the project isn't dropped.

    It was hilarious when someone asked about the male vocaloid. After the guy asked his question, the response was:

    "...We are making a male vocaloid." and ended the conversation there LOL.

    As for English Miku, it will sound awkward, but it'll also improve chances of Western companies making vocaloids too, as opposed to just PowerFX and Zero-G.

    Best vague response ever.

    Okay, I've decided. I will only forgive Crypton if Rin and Len get English as well.

    He sort of alluded to that, when someone asked if the other Vocaloids would get English banks. He said something like "Let's see what happens with Miku first". But nothing specific.

    Maybe that's a good thing then.
    Because if it becomes universal for all of the Vocaloids, then it's not just a cop-out to promote Miku.

    I think it's a good idea to test it with Miku first. I mean, Luka's been out for long enough for them to understand the fails with Luka's English... The reason they're doing this may be the reason they do... well, about half the things they've been doing... To test new methods. Well, hopefully.

    The appends for example. If people hadn't liked them, there's NO WAY they would have given them to Rin/Len. That's also a reason why they do it with Miku first (apart from, of course, guaranteed money). There is NO WAY one bad bank can affect the fanbases' views on Miku.

    Srs. She's too popular.

    Anyway, hopefully they're making her an English bank is because they have a better method of forcing English out of a non-native speaker, or at least configuring it. XD

    Like I said...it would be phonetically impossible...so they'd better have some good editing methods.

    Lessons...
    ...My grandmother has been taking lessons (diligently) for over 30 years to shrug off her Korean accent. No progress...(And Korean has more English-like phoenemes than Japanese!)

    And then what. Then she has an accent. Probably 99% of the fanbase will think it's moe and love it. 1% will whine about the accent.

    And Engloids have accents too, you know.

    -coughcoughLuka-

    Like I said. Asakawa Yuu can speak English. Fujita Saki can't.

    So it won't nearly be on the par of Luka...
