It’s officially July 30th in Japan and, as fans may know, that’s Una’s birthday! VOCALOID Otomachi Una was just released in Japan, and hopefully an international release will come soon.
At the moment, Una is available for purchase both on Internet Co.’s website as well as the VOCALOID SHOP. Both are selling the digital version while Internet Co. also has orders for the physical version. The physical version is set to release August 8th.
At the moment, Una isn’t in the English version of the VOCALOID SHOP. Hopefully she’ll be added soon!
The Otomachi Una voice bank comes with the voice banks Sugar and Spicy. Sugar is Una’s softer, sweeter voice while Spicy is a more powerful voice bank. Both are capable of Cross Synthesis and Growl, and come with many pre-recorded phrases.
In addition to Una’s voice banks getting a release, we now have two Sugar and Spicy MMD models as well as motion data!
In order to obtain the models, users must log into Niconi Solid. This website uses the same account information as Niconico. By pressing the green “ログイン” button at the top right, you’ll be taken to the login page.

Otomachi Una belongs to MTK and INTERNET Co., Ltd.
In addition to the MMD models, two motion data were released. These also require you to have an account to download them.
The first, titled “立つ→あぐら→立つ” (Stand→Sit→Stand), is for the character to stand, move into a sitting position, and then stand again. You can download it here.
The second, “前転して開脚座り” (Rolling before and opened leg sit), is for the character to stand, roll forward on their head, and then stop in an opened legged sitting position. It’s available here.
Both of these motion data are optimized for the Sugar and Spicy models. You may need to make modifications to the motion data for other models to move as smoothly.
Just like the MMD models, the motion data come with terms of service as well.
