oh, about the third to last song

that's kano. her non-vtuber form, specifically. they made a model for her amusingly. It's the first song on her next album which is kind of a collaboration with MONACA member Hidekazu Tanaka. Naturally, he composed this one too

there's a discord fan server for her and the rest of the hanayori group now and they've been talking about it a bunch

unfortunate that noted 7th place ranking person Lee Shion got no reaction, but oh well. Id probably score it the same, comparing it to Ordinary. Oh yeah, also did you notice Baton Rail was actually from the cute bear guitarist vivi? I was surprised she got an actual music video

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gWOfAzSIPkk Mitsuki Neu - Hanasaka Step
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YvfWB9YIPx8 VGaming - V Happiness!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wwFOQC9-mj8 Virtual Cat - Revision

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ct9lb2zgZ4 AZKi - Reflection
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lI861CIVGgo Aki Rosenthal - Sha-Le-Ys

jelly girl back. this song is ok (:

this vgaming song isn't new i only just found out about it

virtual cat. he's done a cool song this month too but i'll get to that next time

the prior azki song. honestly i'm not even sure how many are left from her album now, if any

aki sang this song at the big concert and i was also surprised it was an original one on her channel. It was amazing live

oh, and how could i forget. here's the song from the live that actually was clipped

only just got around to checking this after noticing it with neu's song when that went up. this botchibox arrange album seems guaranteed to be worthwhile honestly based off the two of them. not to mention, everyone else on it is also pretty interesting.

anyway

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TiY6dP4djQA AZKi - Kotonoha

speaking of worthwhile albums, AZKi's one seems to still have no shortage of songs. this one has a very different feeling to her other stuff and i'm okay with it

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e6w0Pi_h4So Monokaki Aer - Karakuri Pierrot

oh yeah, since i didn't do it earlier, i might as well. Aer has a surprisingly good singing voice, but she's in a similar boat to ichika in that I like her standard voice a little more, so here's a sample of what is her more standard content, from back when she still got translated videos.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RE1azAwfZOM
Nowadays it's more like she gives brief descriptions on various novel series with the odd stream to talk about merch being sold at conventions, and she's more active on pixiv fanbox posting stuff like blog posts written like chapters in an autobiography and voice clips, but essentially it's still generally this kind of stuff. also yes i donate to her fanbox

oh yeah, lastly, i guess i mentioned another virtual cat thing
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xBANEFIL5OY - Virtual Cat - Reiwa Equinox

now i'm definitely out of stuff, at least for now

Mitsuki Neu - Hanasaka Step: Pretty neat and I'm not sure which I like better between it and the original. 7.7 sounds right for this.



VGaming - V Happiness: A song so obscure one of the top results for it is this topic. That's weird. Also, this group has a lot of members, which I think hurts the song a bit--I rather like the group parts and the opening, but I'm not a fan of most of the solos... especially the first singer, I think it's safe to say that I'm not a fan of hers at all.

I do particularly like the guy who starts singing around 2:45. His flow kinda reminds me of Poemcore Tokyo and I wouldn't mind more of him specifically; (and really all four of the second group of four singers are better than anyone from the first four)

...no clue how I'd score this one. His specific section is an "8+" with the plus to probably be substituted with a number at some point after I decided how many tenths of a point to award (or possibly just kept as "8+" because my numbering scale includes words and symbols whenever I feel like it), but that first singer is probably a 2, and the rest of the song rather ping-pongs between the two extremes. Let's say..."at least a 6" as anything I type this much about and has a section I particularly like isn't going to fall below that line and leave it at that for now.

Also, yes, I think I do recognize a few of the artists involved. I know I've seen whoever Demon Horn Girl is before and...at least one other person. I just have nothing in particular to say about them, much like I didn't have any real reaction to Lee Shion from the last batch of songs.



Virtual Cat - Odekete Cat: 9...2; let's not try to decipher why this particular score has a triple decimal point, that path lies madness. Song feels like sitting in a cafe on a rainy day inside the Matrix, just sitting there drinking your beverage of choice and watching the rain, while occasionally seeing the lines of code reflected in the water because you are:

A.One of the few who know the truth

B.Drugged out of your mind

C.Completely insane

D.Reality is breaking

E.All of the above.

Been a while since a song gave me a good fantasy sequence like that.



Virtual Cat - Revision: I can't help but wonder if this song would have fared better if I hadn't accidentally clicked the other song first... like it wasn't really going to live up to it... 5.6-ish, maybe?

Eh, I'll try to circle back to it after catching up on everything else if I think about it, give it another try later. Right now, it's late and I need to catch up a bit over at the VGM topic, that backlog is starting to stack up a bit.

...Also that one Virtual Cat song made me want to log into my fox account, so here I am posting with this account for one second before switching back to the usual one because rating VGM under a third username would be incredibly rude. </.<
New account! Yay!

considering i don't think i shared any of them prior, that's unexpected.

vgaming is a group i have very barebones knowledge on past one of the members (yanmi, the second one in the first group)

i've been wanting to address that for a while and still haven't...

https://gamefaqs1.cbsistatic.com/user_image/4/1/7/AARWb-AAALVR.png well

sure, i threw together a bunch of groups i hadn't checked worth of songs together (half of them are vgaming, but there were a few others too), but i didn't expect this many

chances are i will post more, but it's going to take me a little while to get through all of these and whittle them down to a reasonable number

Well it's possible I'm misremembering things... dragon horns and that hat seem familiar and hard to forget, but I poked through the rest of the songs on her channel
and none of them were things I heard before... (there was a V Gamer cover of some Sakura Wars song and I may have heard another version of that specific song, but not theirs).

But then I have occasionally poked around searching for VTuber related things (like when I wanted to track down the girl from the Fake.Fake.Fake video, which led me to her doing a duet with someone, which IIRC led to that other person doing a duet with someone) so it's possible I did run into her on an unrelated search.



AZKi - Reflection: 8.something, I'm thinking 8.2 at the moment but might be slightly undervaluing it. A notable improvement from last song. I like the choice of instruments, I feel like the song suits her voice more than some of her other tracks (it could just be me, but her voice sounds more pleasing here), and I think I'd like the lyrics--the auto-translation is mostly gibberish (as is to be expected), but there's bits about praying for lost time where I get the feeling that it's probably right up my alley.

Aki Rosenthal - Sha-Le-Ys: I dunno. I like the story here--with her being from another world and singing a song from her home. It's got a very JRPG feel to it, for obvious reasons. It feels fairly traditional, but that works for the setting and the story... probably around a high 6 or a low 7?

Hololive Gamers - Shin Takarajima: 6. It's fine? Better than the original, but nothing about the song really grabbed me. It was just consistently nice in all regards; the concert seemed nice, they had nice models, the group performance was nice, the song choice was...alright?

KMNZ Liz - Tantakatantan Tantanmen: 7. Good song choice; I kinda wish I could play this song on Audiosurf, it seems like it would give a neat stage.

AZKi - Kotonoha: 5.3. "Okay with it" sounds about right.



And I'll have to stop here for the night, unfortunately.

agree on azki remarks and scoring

the shin takarajima cover was honestly just there for me and i wish it wasn't the only thing people cared enough about to archive

and well, I'm pleasantly surprised and a little relieved you didn't mind the aki song. i had another song i was prepared to post if you didn't like it... but since that didn't happen... meh, I'll post it anyway.

Monokaki Aer - Karakuri Pierrot: Hey, I remember that song title.

*after going back and listening to the YuNi & Ao duet*

Well, I definitely undervalued that one at the time... let's retroactively raise the duet to an 8 and give the 6 to this one. It's not bad, but as of this particular listen, I prefer both YuNi and Hibiki Ao's voices with this song--and yes I know I said I didn't want YuNi involved at all last time, I don't know why I like her more today than I did a few months ago.

April Fools Video: She does have a cute speaking voice, but I'm finding it tough to find much to say about it.



Virtual Cat - Reiwa Equinox: 8. <3 Virtual Cat.

Monetization Song: 4.5; kinda funny in some places, but eh...

Souran Bushi: 2.



Hey, it's early enough I can get a decent amount of catch-up on the VGM list.

i don't know why either but i can relate. at the time i originally heard the duet cover, i'd only listened to one other thing from yuni (a collab cover with osanai mei where she came i across as tryhard compared to mei). really, i guess you could say i was averse to the idea of dedicated virtual singers then. anyway yeah when i first heard that cover i really didn't care for yuni's side and now i guess i'm more on board with it since i get what her... i guess her voice's gimmick is meant to be more now. it's one of those things that you can really only notice if you're evaluating her voice on its own merits though. ao just stands out more there.

also, it's unfortunate mei doesn't do anything like she used to. the virtual cat collab might as well be her swan song. funny that by contrast, virtual cat's done so much since then that even you've become a fan. and so have i
