I have another Soniko merchandise related post for you, this time Soniko sings a few songs for us. This CD is called SONICONICOROCK Tribute To VOCALOID – Initially Pressed Limited Gorgeous Edition. As the name implies Soniko is performing some popular songs of Vocaloids. Don’t misunderstand Soniko is none of these synthesizer singers, since the Sonicomi game promotion started, she has a real voice, which is given to her by Ayano Yamamoto.
To tell you the truth I mainly bought this CD, because I liked the cover and another reason was that it is a limited item with some small nice extras included, AmiAmi also added a postcard for purchasing this CD. The included extras are a metal keystrap, a telephone card (my second Soniko telephonecard, lucky!), and a small illustration booklet. You know what this means?
I don’t know many vocaloid songs, but I guess most of the songs were already sung by vocaloids, I could find a few of the songs on youtube, anyway the following titles are included.
|1.||ロミオとシンデレラ||ROMEO & CINDERELLA|
|2.||Dear (From Sonico to You)||DEAR|
|3.||ハッピーシンセサイザ (SUPERSONICO VERSION)||HAPPY SYNTHESIZER|
|4.||ARiA (Tribute To VOCALOID”SONICONICOROCK”)||ARIA|
|9.||from Y to Y||FROM Y TO Y|
|10.||朝焼け、君の唄。||MORNING GLOW. YOUR SONG.|
|12.||cat’s dance||CAT`S DANCE|
As I inserted the CD I was quite surprised that the songs sounded that good, she has no exceptional strong voice but I really like the tone of it and it works well with the music. Im really enjoying this CD. To give you a little impression about how Soniko sounds, I will show you a few of my favorite songs.
However here you can see the advertisement which features all the included songs in short
Dear (From Sonico to You)
HAPPY SYNTHESIZER (ハッピーシンセサイザ)
The CD has a good mix of songs, most of them have a Rock/Pop touch, befitting to the girl with the electric guitar, there are a few ballads, a few faster songs and a few dance hall songs, the less artificial voice makes the songs better in my opinion. I expected nothing but now I keep playing the songs like there is no tomorrow. The songs turned out so nice, the box is pretty and so Im glad that I ordered this Initially Pressed Limited Gorgeous Edition. I paid 2800 Yen for the limited edition which is already sold out, but the regular release for 2200 Yen is on backorder
Nitro+ is sure milking a lot this franchise. I wonder when they’ll actually announce another proper game like Muramasa…:P
you are a meanie !
And you have her signature too! >.<
Those are really cute illustrations of Sonico. Maybe she'll have her own album one day, singing her own songs.
haha it probably wasn’t her who signatured it, but the thought itself is nice =)
I also liked most of them, so many different artists illustrated her so far.
Soniko will have an album son, but not as solo artist, bus as member of the Daiichi Uchuu Sokudo band.
Maybe I’ll also get this 😀
You have a virtual idol, doing covers of the songs from another virtual idol… the world we live on nowadays.
Looks like a nice item, I’m liking all the different illustrations in all those different styles.
I don’t thing I ever actually heard her singing, doesn’t sound too bad.
Thats japan for you XD, well with a real voice I would judge her as half virtual ^^
Definitely something a Soniko fan would like, many artist had drawn her, I like the mix.
I still keep listening to the CD, I havent expected this in the first place.
Getting CDs that come with an illustration booklet is nice. It seems that more singers are loaning their voices to 2D characters nowadays, I guess it helps sell more CDs.
A limited edition like that doesn’t feel like a ripoff, you get something for your money, here.
In some cases the 2D characters are much more cuter than the singers, in Soniko’s case mhh Ayano Yamamoto is a pretty girl as well.
Those illustrations are sexy! As expected of Sonicom 😀
