Now that we actually have a few pictures
to go by, it's time to catch up with the latest Vocaloid
girl. Her name is Lily, and although she doesn't seem to have a voice-bank yet, she does have a face - once again drawn by KEI, the same artist who gave virtual life to the original Vocaloid lolis Hatsune Miku
and Kagamine Rin
, among others. This is just a short month after Miku's very hot "Append" version
was also revealed.
Lily's rough character design was exposed in a certain DTM Magazine, on May 8, and naturally it didn't take long for artistically-inclined otaku to start putting out some fanarts. It's also interesting to note that her name "lily" translates to "yuri" in Japanese - a term which, of course, is more popular for its other, more arounsing meaning of girl-on-girl action
Still, despite the fact that Lily was created by the series' "official character designer" of sorts, the music software's production company Crypton claims to have no relationship with this new Vocaloid character, according to a post
on its Twitter account (via ANN
). Some say that Lily is being released by AH-Software as part of their Vocal Artist series
(which includes Miki
), but nothing official at this point. Trivial details, anyway.
More importantly, Lily could use a flatter chest...
