Night Tempo - If You Love Me: Probably a 7. The intro is...odd in a good way, the sax is nice (how many times have I said these topics need more saxaphones?), and the outro is much the same as the intro (which is good). I'd prefer a fully instrumental version, but I wouldn't say I disliked the singing.

The water sounds are A+ of course, but I feel we've covered my thing with certain beaches well enough.



Beyond - 灰色軌跡: 7.1-ish. Good song in all respects--the lyrics are sad without being overwhelming, he's got a good voice, nice band, I'd say everything about is notably above average.

...Which may not be the most thrilling write-up, but I've written worse.



Takanashi Metro - 私、アイドル宣言: 6. She is cute, but the song doesn't grip me as much as some of the other cute songs did.

Takanashi Metro - イヤイヤちゃんのうた: 4. It's really short (27 seconds long) and somehow manages to feel repetitive even at such a short length. Voice is cute enough that I could never hate it and it ends before the Iyaiyaiya can get too annoying, but I'm not a fan of it.

Takanashi Metro - Third Song: (not sure that star would show up if I copy/pasted the title and don't feel like testing it tonight). 5.5-ish; again, it's cute, but only about 1/4th as cute as something like the PHYZ song.



NoWorld: I really think you needed to link the other related video?

Or maybe not. After the ending to the one you linked, I was expecting more of a connection between the tracks... and while I vastly prefer the inverted colors of the second link, I did prefer the song in the first link? Piano song gets a 7.5, other song gets...some amount less.

Yeah, i deliberately excluded the other one. As well as any of Ayame's covers. The song I linked is far more in line with the other songs NoiR does anyway. Incidentally, if you're interested in that kind of stuff, which you may be if you gave it a 7.5, there are night music streams that run from around midnight to 7am-ish japan time every night with playlists of other songs they've done. They get made private or at best unlisted after that so it's likely you didn't see any.

And since I'm down to 4 now, time to acknowledge the last ones i forgot to

Suisei
https://youtu.be/dPTeBvVJ_xY
The other failing idol in hololive. She was in a semi-independent group before joining. Which is to say, yes, she did not start as part of it officially or unofficially. Since she made the jump, she... has done virtually nothing music-wise besides karaoke streams, but that's fine because she's also godly at tetris and other things. Or rather had done, since there's this now. She's been starting to get some traction lately. Might even pass AZKi by next year.

Megururi
https://youtu.be/RP576lz4muI
Hoshi no Meguri is the other main surviving member of the group Ruri used to be part of, aims to be a virtual seiyuu and is a cute dork who secretly likes classic beat-em-ups and snk fighters. They're really good friends and formed this unit recently, starting with this cover of a song from official REALITY-based group KMNZ who are also pretty good. The original song is very heavy on editing so i don't consider it nearly as good though.

Ruri-Yuri
https://youtu.be/n93W0P_D8PM
Contrary to the name, this is very hetero. I was very surprised when I saw this group also form a week later. Not just because it came fresh off the debut of Megururi or even because she'd never interacted with any guys prior besides Fukuyamaster, but because I'd actually seen this guy with 10 subs before. He doesn't have an animated model so I had no idea he was even a vtuber, but Mashiro-sensei aka Yuri is a great singer and person in general. I first noticed him a few times while searching various songs, but the first time i listened to anything of his was when everyone was doing Onegai Muscle covers. His was good. Anyway, after this Happy Halloween cover, they did a radio stream together and it was adorable. Notably, this song was a very popular one to cover this year, and this one was probably top 3 for me. All of the ones I saw actually had their own fresh take on it, there weren't any two ones with the same lyrics.

Kano, Hareru and Hitona of Hanayori
http://nazr.in/1aPM
https://youtu.be/eBBOeYGqTvo
https://youtu.be/fLxzBuoPXbM
The Hanayori Jyoshiryou are a relatively new group that debuted right when noms for this started. They've managed to avoid being totally shut out of the scene mainly thanks to having Kano, noted utaite and anisong singer in general who goes by the same name outside this group. They're especially successful in China on Bilibili, where Kano just used her existing account with 400k followers. In the 3 months since debuting as a vtuber, that's over 600k now, and the rest are all within the top hundred vtubers on there too. Hareru's top 20. Anyway...

Kano song I picked before was yet another Hated By Life Itself cover, and one that had its work cut out for it to compete with the 4 others I posted. Now though, thanks to the power of link shortening, I can pick the actual one I was going to post, which is actually a recent acoustic cover on her non-vtuber channel (the actual link had a variant of f*** in it so it didn't let me post it, thanks GameFAQs). Hareru cover is some song that is half in Chinese to appeal to the bilibili crowd. No, the cat ears aren't normally there. All three of them have covered the song Hitona sang and I recommend checking those out if you like hers. Their face tracking is extremely wonky by comparison though. There's a fourth one, Nonono, but she hasn't done anything solo besides the extremely corny debut song all of them had variations of. I don't recommend that, I'm sure you'd give them a 2 or 3 at best.

The three bears
https://youtu.be/tvTf6vlifSk
https://youtu.be/j-ZzN1vY-Y0
https://youtu.be/8DHxDL5G_84
Hinokuma Ran is the other best member of Animare. You may have noticed she was the one controlling the cameras in Ichika's 3D stream i linked a while back. Hardly a singer like Ichika but just as fun as her and also cuter? That said, IRL she is extremely unfit and nearly died after like 5 minutes of Ring Fit Adventure, the big fad game that was all over the scene until today with pokemon's release.

Vivienne Kensington, or Vivi for short, is a singer/guitarist who covers all sorts of songs. I didn't know about her till a month or two ago when somebody else linked her on a server I'm on, and I still haven't listened to much from her but generally like what I've heard.

Coincidentally also a singer/guitarist, this Manjuu bear is one I found myself roughly 8 months ago, and you can kind of tell she's been around since then since she uses VRChat. A dying breed. She's a songwriter herself, and her songs are largely in this vein, occasionally with sillier lyrics though. She's nowhere near as active as I wish she was but has released several albums, including one with all the songs she's made since adopting this bear persona.

Sorry, haven't really felt like listening to much music lately. I'll take a couple more days off and then get back to it.

This story isn't likely to be of interest to anyone, but I really want to bring it up. Anyone remember Wagakki Band and their cover of Senbonzakura from the actual rankings?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K_xTet06SUo

I actually had heard of the lead singer before, I just didn't recognize her. She's the singer of the main theme of "SD Gundam G Generation Genesis"--a Gundam strategy RPG:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GVVHeEsIfFM

Which I've recently been replaying a bit of while waiting for Cross Rays to come out later this month. Oddly enough, they put her into Genesis as a free DLC so you can use her as a Gundam pilot. I'd been using her in game for a while and tonight decided to look up who Yuko was and...uhh...it was kinda weird to find out that one of my strategy RPG characters is the singer of a song from the ranking topic. Weird good, anyway.

Probably wouldn't have helped the song's placement any, but it would have been a slightly interesting tangent for the song's writeup if I'd known about it earlier.

Nice

Naturally I remembered it (since I have another cover of senbonzakura to be rated still), so I think that's neat

Speaking of, no need to rush, Raetsel. I'm more than happy enough you've continued to give your thoughts period on so many of my other selfish requests when you didn't really need to and I didn't even expect you to in the first place
