    11 years ago, Pompeu Fabra College in Barcelona, Spain started developing Vocaloid software. Ironically no spanish-speaking vocaloid was released because is not cool enough so instead the first Vocaloids were english speakers.

    Anyway, today the Spanish Vocaloids were revealed and people is mad because they were designed to look like normal people and appeal normal people instead of animu characters with some fantasy or sci-fi suit to appeal only western otaku weaboos.

    I think they are forgetting that they are a voice software and not some cartoon.

    Anyway, the website where you can also hear a demo: http://www.voctro-vocaloid.com/es

    I like Clara's voice, but she still needs tweaks.

    I would complain about how much of a hipster Bruno looks but I wear hats like that...

    Western vocaloids will always have a normal look, stupid weaboos. The only western vocaloid that I like is Prima but lets see if these two develops well.

    Is anticipating when the spanish vocaloid makes remix of shitty marachi and Selena songs, also when it knifes the Japanese one for 4 pesos (after money exchange for yen)

    Some people said that they (designers) are racist because they look like average hispanics...

    If they didn't look like hispanics it would be way more racist, lol.
    They redesigned the Western Vocaloid for Taiwanese release and they look nice but their appearances doesn't match at all for mostly...

    Are you telling me that this:

    Pesos in a lot of Américan spanish-speaking countries, Euros in Spain.

    If Mexican Pesos, 4 pesos is like 20 cents of Euro, lol.
    The companies responsible of western Vocaloid actually attempted moe. This is the original Big Al box:

    Then they redesigned him into this:

    [​IMG]

    ... He looks bad, it's like if those clothes were designed to be worn by someone WAY younger (Big Al is 25).

    And this is his voice if someone is curious:

    I think they sound nice but I don't really like the design. Not because they aren't all weeaboo but they look way too much like hipsters.

    I wish someone would make a German Vocaloid now.
