Vocaloid In The News: Brand New Nendoroids, A Special PVC Figure And The Latest Vocaloid China PV
Often confused as an anime or manga title, Vocaloid is a program developed by Yamaha Corporation that allows users to let “vocal androids” sing songs that are entered into the software. While Hatsune Miku (初音ミク) is the world’s most popular Vocaloid, Asgard takes a break from the Miku madness and highlights the other Vocaloids in this week’s Vocaloid In The News.
Gumi (グミ), otherwise known as Megpoid (メグッポイド), appears in the latest Good Smile Company line of brand new Nendoroids together with Kamui Gakupo (神威がくぽ). What makes this Gumi nendoroid very special is that it comes with four different facial expressions, a pair of trademark goggles and a giant carrot which can be ridden by Gumi. The Gumi and Gakupo Nendoroids are now available for pre-orders. Visit the Good Smile Company website for more info.
