Earlier today, as I was browsing through Youtube, I came across this live-action video of TravoltaP’s popular「Kokoro」song. This version uses vocals from NicoNico fame singer, Namakonyuruko. Apparently it was made as a school project by a group of college students from Simon Fraser University in British Columbia. Live-action Vocaloid songs are a rare thing to find, so I felt I would share this with those who may find it to be interesting, as I have.
Last summer there came a young 10-year old American cosplayer out of nowhere who would dress up like Hatsune Miku of Vocaloid and sing/dance to well known ani-songs on Youtube. Her karaoke videos were then later discovered by the otaku denizens of Nico Nico Douga and thus, an internet star was born…
