Well… sorry for last week not writing about the ranking. To be honest, last week was a rather weak week. I guess it was only natural that after 3 week of quality works there is a little “down time” in the VOCALOID creative community. For this week I’ll blog the two week together~
Last week’s ranking: #112 11/16/09 – 11/23/09
As you see, there isn’t much extraordinary songs here, but there is a few, which you will noticed they were strong enough to stay in this week’s ranking.
samfree uploaded 3 new song, and 2 made it to the ranking ^^ and in top 10, one in top 3.
#3 is NOT a new song, but rather a remix by cosMo on the popular song “Infinity Hoilc”
I guess “touhou’s” popularity knows no bounds… Bad Apple! has made it to last week’s chart at an astonishing position… sadly falling off the chart completely this week.
#10 – Prism Heart (samfree)
#6 – 7/8 (ゆよゆっぺ)
#3 – Gravity Reality (samfree)
After a week of “down,” this week is back to the usual “great” stuff. Let’s take a look first.

Quite a busy week with new works. The surprise came at #3 and #2 which is a shock to many: #3 is a song featuring Len and … Tako Luka! (Octopus Luka). And #2 is a cover by Gumi on the song “kimi no shiranai monogatari,” a VERY well-known song from the anime bakemonogatari.
There isn’t any extrodinary song, but quite a number of decent/ok songs.
#1 is taken by ハチ (hachi) with his new work “Clock Lock Works,” an unusual departure from his usual “dark” and “creepy” theme. But it still have trace of his preference toward “abstract” theme. The music though is very different.
I wouldn’t normally recommend #4, but seeing it as a duet and we dont’ get many “great” ones often, this one is worth mentioning.
Surprisingly @ #10, “Envy” made an accend from last week to 10th this week…
Following last week’s strong showing from ゆよゆっぺ’s “7/8” we get to hear another great song at #7 “Psychopath” from him as well. Psychopath is actually an unusual song that it is somewhat bordering “screamo”/”nu-metal.” Might be the first time I’ve heard a Vocaloid scream…
Well that’s all my comment for these two week, might be too little… But if you have any comment or discussion feel free to reply to this post ~~
Last but not least… For anyone hoping that “Just Be Friends,” will disappear from the chart, it seems like it’s going to stay in the chart for an indefinite amount of time; it’s the only “mainstay” that went up in this week’s chart which are flooded with new songs. Judging at the rate it’s going, it’s going to become “Legendary Status,” (門番 status), if not already so. ^^;
Recommendation this week:
#7 – Psychopath
#6 – リミットフレンズ
#1 – Clock Lock Works
