Oh man, I totally haven’t updated this page in months… Well, a lot has happened…
Well, first off, I went to Anime Expo 2012 and got to meet Tamiyasu Tomoe in person! To welcome her, I made a song called makinano using VOICEROID+ Tamiyasu Tomoe and handed it to her on a CD at the con; it was quite fun! I also got to see LiSA and FictionJUNCTION live, doing otagei to oath sign and getting super moved listening to Liminality in person. I also got a very cute surprise on the flight back from LA (which transited through Tokyo).
Next up, I submitted two songs to the OreImo second season ending song contest, where they ask fans to submit songs that could end up in the real show. I submitted two songs, one called Comet Nuke and one called Ion Tail. The former is a cheerful song about friendship, describing Meruru during season 2 of Stardust Witch Meruru, whereas the latter is a sad and forlorn song, the way I imagined Meruru in season 3.
And then, I found out that I actually won an award from Dear Stage with my song Secret Stage as part of the VOCALOID3 Release Commemoration Song Contest. The prize gives me one free entry to Dear Stage as well as a drink, a meal and a photo of one of the idols working there. It’s not a super high level prize but I’m still quite happy about it, since I wasn’t expecting to win anything at all except to get qualified to download galaco. This prize has a catch though, I’d have to go to Japan <_<;
Of course, on August 5, when galaco became available to download, I spent the whole day working with galaco to produce a new song called Cosmic Cruise, which is my first attempt at progressive trance; it's a duet with IA.
Afterwards I um... decided to go to Comiket; it was my second time in Japan and first time to Comiket. I'm so happy I got to meet Blasterhead and Taishi in person, but my bank account wasn't so happy <_<; I also went to Dear Stage for the first time, with mandi-chan as my guide, but ... Rion wasn't there ;_; Oh well...
Last but not least, I made a song for Miku's birthday called 3939555. The song name and lyrics all have references to many things! See if you can spot them.
Oh, and before I forget, I also submitted two songs to collaborators over this time period, but I can't talk about them yet since they're not public yet <_<;
