Had a big day today. I’m sore, I’m tired, and my allergies are taking their toll. In short, I spent all day moving logs around that are taller than I am, so this is a good way to relax. But enough about that, you’re here for the Vocaloid stuffs and I’m here to provide it.
Today’s stars are Rin and Len Kagamine who were released shortly after Hatsune Miku. Originally, Rin was the only one to be released, but there was a demand for a male voice as well. Luckily for the producers, they had a voice actress who could provide both voice banks. Fortunate, eh?
Their names are very obvious when you think about it. For starters, Kagamine is a combination of the words kagami (mirror) and ne (sound). Rin and Len also mean right and left, respectively. They are both 14 years old and are a package deal. As such, they are commonly conceived as twins, though that’s not what the producers were going for.
Their voices are commonly used together but they also have a fair share of singles as well. Though they are not as popular as Hatsune Miku, they are still extremely widely known in the Vocaloid community and have their fare share of products as well. Mostly figurines.
There are also a fair amount of comedic parodies involving these two. Mostly Jo-Jo’s Bizarre Adventure parodies involving the iconic steam roller.
Sadly, there isn’t too much information available information on them, so this is going to be a fairly short post. I did however come across an extremely adorable wallpaper to make up for it. Hope you guys like it
