Photos and video of the new Vocaloid Lily surface

Well, she's no Hatsune Miku


I kind of feel bad for any vocaloid who has to follow in the footsteps of Hatsune Miku. I mean, she's like this ubergoddess to the Japanese, and while people keep making more and more vocaloid characters, none of them seem to even come close to the popularity of Miss Hatsune. Well, whatever. Do vocaloids have feelings? Probably not.
 
Alafista reports that the newest vocaloid will be called Lily and will make her debut this August. Designed by famed artist KEI, her voice comes from m.o.v.e. vocalist  Masuda Yuuri. You can check out the first demo song using the software in the video below. To me, it pretty much sounds like most vocaloid ... it's good, but it's nothing I'd go out of my way for. She is very cute, though. What do you guys think?  Could she usurp Hatsune Miku's throne?

I doubt that Lily would dethrone Miku as the most popular Vocaloid....she might surpass Kagamine Rin in popularity though.

She kinda looks like a mix between Rin and Miku though so she might forever stay in the shadow of those two mega idols:3 
 
Also im still waiting for the apil's fools day when Kasane Teto will finally become a full fledged Vocaloid(and i'll rue the day when Acme Iku becomes one):p

It sounds ok. I don't know anything about vocaloids so I have little to say besides she looks cute.

i like her better than the kagamine twins, she might surpassed them, taking miku(the original, not the grown up) might be really hard to do
