VOCALOID 4 AZUKI & MATCHA Released!

Fans of the PS Vita games Utagumi 575 and Miracle Girls Festival, as well as the anime Go! Go! 575should be very familiar with the green tea and red bean girls of the VOCALOID world. The two were famous for being rather private voice banks only available in Utagumi 575. That is, until now! Finally, these two are publicly available voice banks in the form of VOCALOID 4 AZUKI & MATCHA! Even better, they’re already available for purchase!

About the Voice Banks

Azuki Masaoka and Matcha Kobayashi are part of Project 575. The two were originally VOCALOID 2 voice banks that were unavailable to the public for use on the V2 Editor via legal means. The only legitimate way to use the voice banks was through the actual game. Now, years later, fans can finally use these two voice banks on their home computers! And they’re set for the newest VOCALOID Editor available: VOCALOID 4!

AZUKI

“VOCALOID 4 Library AZUKI” was produced based on the voice of voice actress Yuka Otsubo, known for voicing anime characters such as Kyoko Toshinou from Yuru Yuri and Kanako Mimura from Idol Master Cinderella Girls. It features a cute voice that is perfect for the cheerful Azuki Masaoka’s character image, and perfect for upbeat tempo pop songs, rock, etc.

Voice Provider: Yuka Ohtsubo
Recommended Range: F2-C4

MATCHA

“VOCALOID 4 Library MATCHA” is voiced by the same woman who voiced Uzuki Shimamura of Idol Master Cinderella Girls and Adeltrud Olter of Knights & Magic, Ayaka Ohashi. The natural and calm singing voice reflects a quiet and calm disposition suitable for slow tempo songs, such as ballads.

About the Characters

Of course, being from video games and an anime, these girls have personalities! Both are different from the other, but compliment each other very well.

Character Name: AZUKI

This voice bank is based on the character Azuki Masaoka, who first appeared in the PS Vita game Utagumi 575, which is a rhythm and word building game, where players sing and dance over melodies while trying to build traditional Japanese 5-7-5 tanka and haiku poems.

Azuki Masaoka Profile

Blood Type: O
Birthday: June 11th
Sign: Gemini

Azuki is a lively, cheerful, and positive girl. She often wears her heart on her sleeve, and can be very direct with others. People seem to gravitate toward her dynamic personality, but this can also make her become lost in the moment, without thinking about the consequences…

Character Name: MATCHA

This voice bank is based on the character Matcha Kobayashi, who first appeared in the PS Vita game Utagumi 575, which is a rhythm and word building game where players sing and dance over melodies while trying to build traditional Japanese 5-7-5 tanka and haiku poems.

Matcha Kobayashi’s Profile
