The latest information regarding the third vocaloid character has been released today. The new character is named “Megurine Luka” (I am working very hard not to call her “Luka Migraine”) and features the voice of Asakawa Yuu, probably best known for her role as Sakaki in Azumanga Daioh. I can’t expect her to become anything resembling the cultural phenomenon that is Hatsune Miku, but I must confess, I absolutely love this design:
Simply gorgeous. Those boots and that Futurama-style wristamajig really complement the future/fantasy style, and I love how pale she looks. Here’s hoping this achieves enough success for her to have a real presence in future vocaloid doujins.
