She is, but without her appearance, the VOCALOID franchise would not have prospered as well as it did. KAITO was deemed a "failure" as he did not sell to well early on. But when Miku was introduced and he was used in some of her songs and such, he became much more popular and sold a lot of copies. If it makes you feel any better, KAITO's V3 sets have sold more than Hatsune Miku's original voicebank. > static4.wikia.nocookie.net/__c…
Being a pretty hardcore Vocaloid (and UTAUloid) fan, I would like to verity that THIS IS TRUE.
There are so many other beautiful Vocaloids like Meiko, IA, galaco, and even Rin! Yet everyone focuses on the cliche and overused Miku.
My friends and I (Miku fans and not) all agree: Everyone should respect Miku for singing all the songs as a basis for other Voca/UTAUloids. But then you can respect everyone else more, for doing a better job of singing it.
damn straight, that whole Vocaloid fandom should've gone up in flames along with the homestuckers the first day they walked in, useless reading without a plot and song maid up off computers, along with computer generated "fantasy" women.
As much as I'm a diehard fan of Vocaloid (judging by my username, whoda thunk?), I honestly agree. There are plenty of underrated Vocaloids that need more attention, such as Yuki and Kiyoteru. Hell, even the Engloids need more attention! I know that Engloids like Big Al and OLIVER are getting kinda popular, especially the latter, but they need more attention than Miku. Give her a break, guys. I'm not trying to start trouble or anything, but does EVERY SINGLE SONG have to revolve around her? Like ~Kawaii-Onigiri-Chan said, she's not the queen of Vocaloid; in fact, none of them are, they're Vocaloids and they should be treated as such. I understand WHY she's so popular, but people don't need to start freaking out and fangirling/fanboying whenever Miku is mentioned.
When (insert underrated Vocaloid here) is mentioned: "Meh." When Miku is mentioned: "OMG MIKU111!!!!!ONEONE!!"
To be perfectly honest, while Miku is a pretty amazing Vocaloid, she's not very close to my favorite. My top three would probably be SeeU, Kaito, and Rin. Now, let's not get into how "overrated" Kaito and Rin are, this is about Miku.
If this was TL;DR for you guys, the point is Miku is amazing and all, but people need to settle down whenever Miku pops in. People need to stop giving her so much attention and focus on other Vocaloids.
