(p ∨ s) → (q ∧ r)= ¬(p v s) V (q ∧ r)
or
¬(q ∧ r)→ ¬(p ∨ s)=(q ∧ r) ∨ ¬(p ∨ s)


invalid argument

Well, it is garbage and it is fake. Some individuals just can't take an opinion without getting easily offended. I personally don't care what the fans do, it's not going to hurt CBS ratings.

She is community-driven music, written by people passionate for various music styles and giving themselves a voice that can be shared and appreciated more rapidly than before. To me, that's more real than corporate-driven music by women with fake boobs.

Miku represents an artistic medium that created its own artistic identity, shared through different characters. It reminds me a lot of early religious pantheons, wherein man embodied his observations of the world in multiple deified forms. Why wouldn't the incarnation of an idea--even a virtual incarnation--be considered real? I can't touch her, so I should consider her fake? She can't touch me, either--should she consider me fake? (And just as a caveat, I'm much more of a Haku and Teto fan anyway. . .)

What exactly was offensive about that? I wouldn't stretch it as far as calling her "fake". But she's not a real, living person either. What's written there is simply the truth.

Oh, but don't mistake me, I'm a great fan of Miku, I'm simply tired of the people that believes as much in Miku as they do in Santa. None of them exists in the flesh. Deal with it.



The argument is not that they believe Miku exists in the flesh, it`s just the article`s poor word choice. Using fake gives the idea that something is a sham or a disgrace. A proper word to be used here would be unreal, because ANY sane Vocaloid fan knows that these animated characters are not real. With that being said, Miku is NOT entirely fake. "She" is just as real as any other instrument out there (because that`s what she fucking is), and her voice is actually sampled from a very REAL artist/singer. To dismiss that fact is not only disrespectful, but also giving the middle finger to the face to all the composers, songwriters, and animators behind this project. You have to remember that most actual pop stars FOR THE LONGEST TIME (not just this modern era) had their songs written by producers and other songwriters. Vocaloid is merely a tool for these unknown songwriters and composers to have a voice in their music when they can`t really afford or have the time to find a talented singer.
If you or anyone else is not a fan of her voice or music (which can`t be jotted down, since there are over 3,000 songs to her name), then that`s completely fine. No one will chastise someone for that. It`s just the implication that the Vocaloid movement does not mean anything because the "singer" is not real that gets its fans all riled up.

Well yeah she is fake but also real at the same time, if people don't like miku then who cares. I know for a fact if one of my m8s or the entire world told me i couldn't like something like miku i wouldn't really care i'd still like it.

So my question to all of you is, if this guy is putting his own opinion (from what i scanned it seems like it) then why do you allow yourselves to care?

I love vocaloid, but I certainly know it's not exactly the best source of music XD but nonetheless I still listen to it 24/7

And I agree that it doesn't seem too offensive, Miku Hatsune is indeed fake. It's simply the truth. It doesn't mean it's particularly bad :/

I think the whole vocaloid thing is a nice novelty, but they will never compare to real singers.

I don't see whats worth getting riled over in the article, they are fake at the end of the day.

Did any of the idiots who responded to this article actually read it?

From my experience, the vocaloid fanbase tends to be a bit...overly-sensitive and somewhat elitist. I on the other hand, don't see how this is insulting. I like Hatsune Miku as well, yet even I have the sense to know that she isn't technically a real popstar and is in fact, fake. Yet that doesn't stop me from enjoying her music.

olol~~

Watch dem Miku fans RAGE again~~! XD

Not sure fake is the right word though since no one tried to declare she was "real" in the first place. Q 3 Q;


I'm sure there are plenty Miku fans out there that have wished for her to be real at least once lol... and probably a lot of other creepy things with her that would make for a much more interesting news story than calling her "fake".
