Along with including the art, EmpathP has included a little ‘dev diary‘ giving us a look into how exactly Avanna came to be. There are a bunch of interesting factoids included in this dev diary including how EmpathP got the job, some of the revisions they made, and the reveal that Avanna’s may be of Irish descent, thus prompting the ‘Celtic’ theme.
Probably most interesting of all was the insight in how Yamaha has input in all of their sub-licencer’s VOCALOID production. Yamaha expressed concerns “that Zero-G’s approved design was not “Anime” styled enough” and requested Avanna be redesigned into a “cuter, modern anime style”, maybe in an attempt to grab that ‘moe’ appeal that is oh, so popular these days.
