Brand New Virtual Idol Looking For A Voice
Another singing sensation hailing from Hokkaido, Japan will making waves soon but first she’s got to have a voice! Enter Kitano Kamui (北乃カムイ). This adorable virtual idol that has a cat girl vibe to her was created on April 2013 and was designed by Hatsune Miku’s (初音ミク) very own illustrator, KEI. An audition held last December was made as a part of the Kitano Kamui Project with a total of 94 applicants in attendance. From the 94 candidates, only 7 hopefuls made it and only one of them has a chance to bring Kitano Kamui to life with that unique voice! The names of the lucky 7 were announced during the Sapporo Snow Festival held last February 11.
The winner will be hosting a radio show on HBC Radio as Kamui Kitano planned to be on air soon. The official Youtube channel of HBC Radio has uploaded a 9-minute video featuring samples of the voice auditions of the 7 with an introduction by MAYU. Who has won your vote?
