LiveJournaler ChibiYuuto reports on a recent(?) CLAMP project: apparently CLAMP worked with a couple of the people behind Vocaloid, the popular singing-synthesizer that spawned Miku Hatsune, Rin and Len Kagamine, Megurine Luka, and more recently Megumi Nakajima's Megpoid (also known as Rankapoid).

The manga powerhouse illustrated a video with a song called “Mugen no Yami -echo of the past-,” sung by Miku, of course. The video is up on YouTube, so you can check it out right here:
  

It's really just a few illustrations, no real animation and not the most exciting video...in my opinion it's not even a particularly good song. But it's gorgeous CLAMP art, so who cares?

@Schwindelmagier: Really? I thought it was pretty meh. Basically like, three drawings-- nice ones, sure --but I'd rather see large full-scale colored versions of them as still shots than watch the video. Maybe if the song was better.

Am I the only one that really dislike Vocaloid? It doesn't sound good at all and I don't know why I would like to hear an already good song sung in a different way unless its a real cover song? Like how JAM Project did a cover of the Lucky Star intro song. Now THAT was great.

@lanaswift: It's all right. I completely respect your opinion. I just like Clamps work and am usually, if not always amazed by their work. ^^

@Lance_McCloud: I don't hate Vocaloid, but it definitely doesn't sound like real people singing or anything like that.

CLAMP and vocaloid? We could use more of this. Love the art work but expected more from CLAMP. Lets hope their more of this to come.

Sometimes CLAMP can do really good art. This is one of those cases. The song is meh.

@MoonStorm: Sometimes CLAMP can do amazing art?! Ummm....more like ALWAYS does amazing art. I agree with lanaswift in that I would have preferred to see full scaled colored drawings and more of them. Don't really dig the song; found it rather annoying and not suited to CLAMP's art...by which I mean I want a pretty song to go with pretty art. :)

I'm just getting sick and tired of Vocaloid doing a cover for pretty much everything nowadays. >>;

I really liked it, mostly due to CLAMP's amazing art.
