Weekly Vocaloid Rankings #140

Posted in Nico Nico Douga with tags , , on June 8, 2010 by kumoriha

Nico Nico Douga.
World’s End Dancehall strong as usual. This is like…Meltdown-strong. First place is obviously cosMoP’s new song. Yay for Miku Append.
Not much else to say. JBF and the usual gatekeepers strong as usual.

Recommend me some good anime please.

Random Japanese Word of the Day:
調子に乗る(choushi ni noru) – to be caught up in the moment. Literally “riding the moment.” Sounds weird in English, but it kind of makes sense, right? Right?


Cirno’s Perfect Math Class

Definitely paying a visit to Tokyo University sometime. Hopefully during my college years.
Tokyo U students dance to Cirno’s Perfect Math Class. So so awesome.

The comments were the funniest part though. “This is the future of Japan right here…” Well, it certainly better than the future of America…
This Toudai Project included the Touhou cast, of course (minus Alice, sadly), along with other favorites. Abe, Ronald McDonald, Obama (lolwtf), and I think I saw Goku too.

Reminds me of the Hokkaido dancers, only…y’know…without freezing snow. And with national level students. Yep. So going to Tokyo U.

Random Japanese Word of the Day:
下らない(kudaranai) – useless, stupid. Pretty intense word. Unless you really despise something, I’d stick with baka or dame.

Esu! Ei! Tiiiiii!

This morning I took my SAT IIs. I was originally planning to take US History too, but after I went through hell Math II and Physics, I fell into “screw this” mode. It was very fun, especially since I couldn’t sleep at all last night. And thanks for the text message at 12:26 am, Clint.
That aside, I should have scored okay…maybe…hopefully…


Also started working out. I feel like POO.

In happier news, local NND god J has come back, with THE old favorite, a cover of Nico Nico Douga Ryuuseigun.


Random Japanese Word of the Day:
あり得ない(arienai) – “Impossible!”; lit. “can’t be.” By the way, the neutral form of the verb is ariuru, not arieru. People who say arieru are doing it wrong.

Weekly Vocaloid Rankings #139

Nico Nico Douga.
Wow. This week.
Thanks to the Vocalogenesis Vocaloid album hitting first in Oricon rankings (WOW), a bunch of old songs came back up. Watashi no Jikan…that was the song that brought me into Vocaloid (and Melt, too, later). World’s End Dancehall remains first! Even くたばれPTA(kutabare PTA/”Fuck you, PTA”) only managed to make second. Interesting song.

Random Japanese Word of the Day:
出鱈目(detarame) – nonsense. Daily conversation in Japanese class: Dillon – Nanda sono detarame! (What’s with that nonsense?)/Me – Maa, ii ka? (Eh, whatever)
