Yahama’s popular voice synthesizer featuring the lovable Hatsune Miku (well, I don’t love her, but the world does), Kaito, and company.
Hello all! February 2010’s theme is Vocaloid, so I’ve started things off with a less popular character, Gakupo Kamui, the dancing eggplant Samurai. No really. I’m serious.
The Vocaloid wiki says:
“Kamui Gakupo has a samurai aesthetic—the Vocaloid is clad in a Jinbaori, a kind of kimono which was used as a battle surcoat, with parts of Japanese armor, and carries a katana which was named “Music katana, Miburi”(楽刀・美振,Gakutou Miburi). The patterns on its blade make sounds as a musical instrument when it is swung down.  His fanmade character item is an eggplant.“
The hardest part of drawing Gakupo here was probably the outfit. It’s pretty dang confusing with its many layers and buttons. I tried out my new eye style again, and I think it looks good with this piece. Though my brother, on the other hand, thought it looked weird. How unfortunate. I decided the hair looked better flat, and not shaded, in case you’re wondering why it’s like that.
Tell me what you think ;D. I might make some wallpaper with it later.

“Somewhere, there was a tiny dream. Such a tiny dream it was, No one knew who had dreamt it. The tiny dream began to think. ‘I don’t want to disappear this way. How can I make people dream of me?’ The tiny dream thought and thought, and then came up with an idea. ‘I’ll make humans get lost in me, and let them create the world.’”

The charm of 歪Ｐ‘s Hitobashira Alice (more commonly known amongst western fans as “Alice of Human Sacrifice”) comes from not only its dark, eerie image, but also from its long-lasting shelf life as a song, courtesy of the lyrics’ vagueness and the ever-thickening web of interpretations fans have spun around it. I’ve listened to the song at least a hundred times over and still feel like I’ve never heard it before.
