A new Vocaloid has hit the waves, and her name is Akikoloid-chan! Read on for all the information.
Lawson, a convenience store chain in Japan has made their mascot, Akiko-chan, into a Vocaloid. Below you can view her original and Vocaloid versions.
She was developed by both Lawson and Yamaha. Her official illustration is drawn by Hidari. She will be used to announce messages, and be Lawson’s mascot for their NND channel (a video showing her “development” can be viewed here), but there is no word on if she will be a public product at this time. According to the video, Akiko-chan is a second year student at college, working part-time at Lawson. Her older brother, a science student, secluded himself in the college laboratory for a week, and created an android, Akikoloid-chan, to his little sister’s image. Akikoloid-chan’s voice was sampled from Akiko-chan.
