There are so many damn vocaloids now a days that it doesn’t make sense to make a fuss about each and every one that comes out. Mayu, however, I think deserves special recognition here though. Why? Because she’s Exit Trance’s vocaloid. Something to that effect anyways.
Details are scarce right now. The vocals behind her voicebank haven’t even been announced yet. All that is known about Mayu right now is that the concept around her is that she’s a yandere middle school student. While I’m sure she’ll slip under the radar and we’ll all forget about her in a week, I think the fanworks surrounding that concept alone could be really interesting. However, while her design is cute (which was done by Hidari who did the original character designs for Fractale and Natsuiro Kiseki) I think it’s a bit over the top for the whole yandere student thing. A simple design like the yandere CD girl would have worked but hey whatever Hidari is a great artist and it’s cute. (also that hair is really great so I think I can appreciate her design if only for her hair)
