Vocaloid (ボーカロイド, Bōkaroido) is a singing voice synthesizer software. Its signal processing part was developed through a joint research project led by Kenmochi Hideki at the Pompeu Fabra University in Barcelona, Spain, in 2000, and originally was not intended to be a full commercial project. Backed by the Yamaha Corporation, it developed the software into the commercial product "Vocaloid".

I recently found this song and instantly fell in love. Definitely my new favorite Vocaloid song--I'd love to share it with those of you who haven't heard it! I hope you all like it as much as I do! The story behind it is the story of the Crane Wife, an old Japanese folktale. Look it up if you're interested!

The Kagerou Project is a famous cluster of Vocaloid songs that are already interconnected to tell a story. This Project became so popular that its adapted light novel series, Kagerou Daze, is the top-selling series in Japan for the first half of 2014 (see source: ); and its adapted anime, Mekakucity Actors, has the highest amount of followers on Twitter in Japan (source: ). The link below has a list of all the songs in the project as well as other info.

If the robotic voice is not really your thing, or if you were always curious about hearing the song with an actual human voice, here's a cover. Akiakane is a very....passionate singer. She kind of yell-cries (I have trouble describing it--but she doesn't do screamo, though). Personally, I think it fits the song.

A must-see for anyone being introduced to Vocaloid.

The Vocaloid "KAITO", one of the earliest Japanese vocaloids, was originally a commercial failure, selling very few boxes and remaining low on the popularity rung. However, Kaito accmulated a very dedicated fanbase, and following the release of his update (V3) in February, he skyrocketed to the number one position on amount-sold polls, even outranking Hatsune Mike software.
