Will Oliver be Our Miku?
Posted 31 January 2012 - 05:34 PM
We have a good bunch of producers, but We're lucky to get new orginals every few months or so. In japan, so many people write original songs that multiple originals come out every week.
Oliver has potential. Don't be all mopey and pessimistic. Oliver can be great. He might not be the miku of the west, but if one thinks about it...
If we don't have the producer base, the English Miku won't be the English Miku
Most of the people who buy miku will probably as well just make covers.
stop complaining and either write a song, ask your musical friends if they want to write a song. SONGS!!!! SONGS!!!!...

Oh yes, I agree. He, as well as all Engloids, needs more original songs and fanart in general. I think that was how Miku got popular.
To be honest I always thought the purpose of buying Vocaloids was to make music, not covers. Which why I bought the software and Music Studio. I'm actually planning on getting a bunch of English Vocaloids and making original songs. My old computer has issues, but I have a new one.

So, yeah, English Miku.
If it's all dreams, Now wake me up....If it's all real, Just kill me.

Then, yeah, I thought that might happen too.
I mean, he already seems like the most liked Engloid.. So he could easily become more popular.
Also.. some people still think Miku is the only vocaloid.. so if they hear about Oliver, they'll think his the 2nd vocaloid..

And, I bet english Miku won't be so popular in Japan, so we pretty much can expect loads of covers for her in youtube. Hopefully, her english bank won't outshine other engloids. And this might sound weird, but I have a feeling English Kaito will be the most popular once released... If they include him in Miku's Toyota CM.

Honestly, if they take longer to release English Miku and Kaito because they are taking their time to improve them it will make people want them more cause time can mean they might be "perfecting" them. So I'm hoping they are really good. Although, I am hoping Miku doesn't overpower the Engloids to much since they need love too, but I don't think anyone can catch up with Miku's high popularity otherwise.

(Sorry, that kind of turned into a bit of a rant...)

Though then again, Japan and America's Fandom cultures are completely different. Anime is obviously more popular in Japan than America, which is also why Miku had been likeable considering she's catagorized as "Anime" or "Cartoon" and is part of Japan's culture, seeing as all ages in Japan are familiar with and like anime, so they had no problem with it.
Where as in America, anime isn't in our culture, and seems foreign. Not a lot of people like anime, and think since it's a "cartoon" it's childish, and don't bother with it. For instance, when people who have never heard of Miku find out about her, people aren't as acceptable towards her than people in Japan because it's not what we're used to.
All I'm saying is, since Ollie has that "animeish/cartoonish" design and appeal, he might just get overlooked. I'm not saying he can't make it in popularity, I'm just saying a lot of people will overlook him. If that made sense? XD Sorry...It's hard to explain...
