It’s here. After a slew of imitators, the true successor to the ニコニコ流星群 is here. Yes, my friends, right now, NicoDou is celebrating the release of the next megamix. 七色のニコニコ動画 (Nanairo no NicoNicoDouga) is here.
This is my first real megamix since getting into NicoDou hardcore. I love the 流星群, since that gave me the jump start I needed to get into in the first place, but this one… It is like a summary of my last year of NicoLife. I’ve featured a number of these songs on the blog over the last year, although not all of them! Can you believe that this blog will be one whole year old in just over 2 months?! WTF.
I have a list of the songs after the jump, minus the HEROES section (the section of chaos from 9:40 to 11:10) since really you could just go to the 流星群 for those songs. If you are a experienced ニコ厨 (NicoChuu), listen to it before you check the list below. See how many you recognize! If you are new to NicoDou, this is a great way to catch up! XD
(BTW, as for the English name, I would call it Rainbow Colored NicoNicoDouga if I were in charge, but a few places seem to already be translating it as “7 Colors of Nico Nico Douga.” I hate translation. 日本語バンザイ！ Oh, and as always, if you don’t have a NicoDou account, why not?!)

A new voice for VOCALOID2 is coming out on January 30th! CV03′s name is going to be 巡音ルカ (Megurine Ruka). Seems like the official jury is out on whether or not he name should be spelled “Ruka” or “Luka.” I’m leaning towards Ruka since I have a very different image in my head of who Luka is.
The news coming out about her says that she will have both English and Japanese voice databases so she can sing in either language. He style is husky and jazzy. The character design, by KEI, has pinkish hair, blue eyes, and… well… large breasts. Yes, this is an official trait. (-.-;) Her special item doesn’t seem to be decided just yet, but it seems like it may be an actual tuna fish, a shovel, and or peaches.
Her other official traits are as follows:
* Age: 20
* Height: 162cm
* Weight: 45kg
* Style: Latin, Jazz, Ethnic Pop, House, Electronic Dance
* Tempo: 65 to 145 BPM
* Range: D3 to D5 (apparently she can do a wider range, this is just her specialty)
Anyway, I’m excited to see what Feburary brings us in the way of new NicoMusic. Not to mention all the random videos that will determine how we see her personality. Oh man, what a world.
