Before Crypton thought about creating Megurine Luka with
the capability of singing in English, which in turn, opens up
the possibility of true multilingualism, this concept has
already been hatched, carefully planned and made
possible. That is what Riza represents for the older
VOCALOID generation; multilingualism! Existing Vocaloids
from Crypton and Internet Co. are still capable of fluency in
languages other than Nippongo!
Enter Sotone Riza, the Multilingual Vocaloid based from
the wonderful voice of Hatsune Miku! We admit, it's not an
independent VOCALOID, but the point of her existence is this;
VOCALOIDS, no matter where they're from, are
capable of true multilingualism! It can be hard, but
it can be really done.
Despite Miku’s surprising popularity in all over the world, for a mere
computer vocal synthesis program, unfortunately, it is seen that content
creation involving her and the other VOCALOIDS remain rather low outside
Japan. If there are any, some would be substandard in comparison, and are
not very well done.
Everyday in Nico-Nico Douga and in YouTube, you
will see plenty of Japanese VOCALOID songs, but very few non-Japanese
songs. The only exception to this is those sung by Megurine Luka, who is
designed for both English and Japanese language, resulting in English
Perhaps the saving grace in all this is
the high output of fan art and derivatives in both east and west. Japan’s
window to fan art is PIAPRO, also run by Crypton Future Media, and Pixiv,
a similar fan content site,
while in the western world, we have DeviantArt.
Using the same
formula Crypton has used
Miku, POLYGLOID aims to raise awareness of VOCALOID, its
potential for multilingualism, using what else? A mascot cartoon
character that is represented as an evolution for the VOCALOID users.
That’s what Sotone Riza is for.
Her English name is Riza Sotone. Unlike other VOCALOIDS, she has a
true name (like how celebrities has a different stage name from real name).
