Well, I'd say it was badly worded. I really hate Vocaloids (I have sensitive ears and their mechanized voices irk me), but to call software fake is kinda stupid.

Vocaloids are mascots, so to say, and due to mass acceptation and idolizing, that turnes them into "something real" for the fans. But it makes no sense to make a mountain out of a molehill for something as trivial as this.

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".


Anything you want to admit?

She's just another instrument. I'm definitely not a fan of the hologram aspect and I probably wouldn't pay to go see it unless someone I knew was going and that will never happen.

My fav hatsune miku song:

The title of the article was in poor taste but most of them are! The only Miku song I like is the World is Mine. I love the cosplay and all her merch though... she's is just too cute. I would be bored going to one of her shows but that is just me!

lol intresting taker on it, sorry i must not have made myself clear. What i mean is the voice exists yes but she doesn't however using holograms you can see and maybe (i dunno) talk to her and have her respond.

I'm terribly offended that such a thing was said about a fictional singer.

While I dont really think that fake was the best choice of words there, the article itself didnt seem to be negative at all, it honestly seemed to present a reasonably positive view of Miku to me. So this article doesnt really bother me

Not a hater or a fan of vocaliods, Although, they are already taking over Japan and North America. It's starting a project in China too. Maybe in a few days, it'll become mainstream.

I can't see people paying for any kind of music where it's been tuned automatically..





oh wait.

^My car door, so clearly I'm a big fan of the music and character.
But, it's a true statement. She is FAKE. There is nothing real about her.
That doesn't mean you still can't be a fan, but, it's not like she's a real living entity :|

If you ask me it's just poorly worded. Journalist always try to play with words to get more readers. The fact that they're writing it just now means that they have no idea about the fans. Nothing more than poor research and nothing worth getting riled up over.

Wow that fan was so butthurt and he really believes that miku is real lmfao!

Let me ask you a few questions:

Can you touch, this miku character?

Does miku have a birth certificate?

Sorry to disapoint all the fans but fake is fake :)

PS, I don't hate the people behind the fake character at all, my buddies have showed me some songs and I love them... just hate the nolife fans that believe that miku is "REAL", which clearly you must be insane if you !@#$ing believe so and should seek help.

I don't care much for the digital voice, but I see this as a great opportunity for songwriters and singers. Songwriters can have total control as to how their songs are presented, and singers, with their beautiful voices, no matter what age, ailment (stage freight/shy, etc.), or image (not "beautiful" or "attractive") have a place for their voices to be heard. No more silenced voices! Maybe we'll finally get some good stuff besides the crap that passes itself as "music" these days.
