French TV Pans Miku: “She’s Atrocious!”

Hatsune Miku’s world conquest seems to have stalled in France, where commoner celebrities had the temerity to call her live performance “atrocious” and “horrific.”

    Look here, not all of people's taste is the same. Some of us love it, some of us hate it, some of us is indifferent or don't care.

    So, because of only small portion of French doesn't like it, doesn't mean all French doesn't love Miku.

    I love Miku just like she is.
    With her 'scratchy and high-pitched voice' and her voice is unique like 'machinated' period

    I'm French and I can say that nobody cares The Big Journal... It's a show for people who want to relieve their frustration by insulting people...

    Hatsune Miku IS known in France (in certain circles)... If you want a french show that talks about Japan without being prejudiced, forget Canal+ (the channel which is airing The Big Journal) and try "Nolife".

    Saying nobody cares about "le grand journal" isn't true, some people enjoy the show. You don't, and as a remainder, Canal+ war the first channel to air Evangelion, Escaflowne, Cowboy Bebop and some anime movies... they contributed in more way than TF1 or TMC in implanting anime in France.

    Nolife on the other has great shows, but I find its definition of "otaku" pretty vulgar most of the time. I won't say the whole channel is bad though.

    You guys seem to have a very bad memory: Do you remember the CNN reporter who exposed the Bad Apple!! video (with the shadows) and said it was done by stopmotion and some reporter said it was "creepy"? SO by YOUR standards, should I call every American a "frightned pussy"? What's wrong with this place? Can you guys think just one second without all your peasant prejudices (which are wrong by default) and use some scientific sense!
    Here are some principles:
    1- TV is not a trustworthy source, any channel can create the biggest bullshit ever: look at the Chinese Tv, do you believe everything you see there? Of course not. The same goes everywhere.

    2-Never generalise the citizens of a country if you only have one point of view! The "Hampel's ravel " axiom and the Probatio Diabolica are the same things used during the Inquisition! And you say you are more advanced than some peasant of the Middle Age?

    3- If you want to bash something/someone, do it neatly, with facts,arguments and a coherent speech! This way a discussion is possible with counter-arguments (as a Court).

    These are the principles of every scientist, and it should be yours as well!!

    America's a melting pot, so we blame specific subcommunities and minorities (especially blacks, Mexicans, and Fox News). France is composed of French and Albanians, so we blame the French as it is the only group to blame. As for the countless times people on SC bash Americans, I am mature enough to not get offended and instead laugh it off. French should do the same.

    Miku is only cool for an otaku, that's a worldwide reality. The reason why I hate our journalists is they never do their job right, and here they chose to make people think Miku can only sing "Popipo" and Japanese people'd go for that.

    French people seem to have an inferiority complex about not speaking English, so they probably relish the chance to hate on music in another language.
    In fairness though, shows like this are terrible regardless of what country they're from.

    The same thing can be said about how English people seem to resent French people. How many time do I see the English population insult the French for some crap that happened oh so many years ago. And frankly, I don't like Miku either. Her voice simply isn't natural enough.

    While the colonialist thing might have been right for a certain time, French people resent learning English because a large part of English teacher are f*king bad. I'm French and during my whole scholarship, only 2/3 out of all the English teacher I had (+/-10) could be considered good, they were interested in teaching and by English culture, where most of teacher only learn how to teach and do nothing more.

    Anyway, the whole bunch of people commenting about French ranting non stop and claiming we are all xenophobic... you're no different, there are French like that, but not all, it's like us saying all American came from Texas or being all Redneck.

    The commentary from the show on a Chinese singer with a very high pitched voice would have been the same, we just (for a major part) can't stand this type of voice, popipo not being a clever choice too. Some people hate Miku, they have the right to do so, deal with it.

    I admit I was grossly exaggerating there, but it is true that there is a lot of nationalistic pride attached to the French language, combined with a certain bitterness that 19th century colonial attempts to establish French as the global lingua franca failed, and it was the English language that filled this role instead. Hence, some French people seem to resent speaking English and avoid doing so wherever possible (obviously this is a broad generalisation).

    There's nothing supposed about Japanese xenophobia. Some Japanese people are not xenophobics or work really hard not looking like it to anyone from inside to outside. That's the only limit to it.

    Please. That show decided to broadcast that song. They don't mean anything but bashing "crazy Japanese culture" as they want us to think this is about.

    Yet another case of awful journalism, reminding me of MEUPORGs.

    I accept than most of my fellow citizens would still think it sad to pay money for that kind of concerts if they had a clue what it is actually. They'd think the same about idols (and I do too.) But what was shown here is way beyond that. No excuses for this fail of a show, no excuses for our failed journalists.

    (Now technically that same show also chose to bash a ridiculous virtual singer, a 100% French product. Of course, *that* one does not have any good song, and isn't meant to be made sing by any fan with some software. Frenches do not hate non-French sings. Frenches hate *everything*, *everyone*)

    @HouseLife's statement: That's most likely the case. For me, although I'm highly into the otaku culture, listening to Hatsune Miku is like listening to someone scratching a chalkboard. I have no problem with the other Vocaloids, though, & rather enjoy them. So maybe her crazy pitch and the terrible choice of such an overwhelming song as "PoPiPo" to present to foreigners right off the bat is what broke the deal for them.

    But I wont deny the high possibility of it just being a case of the French being French.

Because, of all the awesome songs of the concert, they choose to show the most (In my opinion) annoying and retarder song of the list. So of course "normal" people are gonna make fun of it and like always, diss everything that involves vocaloid because of ONE song. This is what you call a "plan con maña" or a cunning plan

    As a french, even I can't help but agree. For some very obscure reason, french media has been doing japan-bashing for decades, while even the deepest shit coming from deh USA is considered as gold (we hate your politicians and your tv shows tho, we're tsundere for you). But as a fellow french said earlier, 'we' do hate even our own culture (which is indeed I must say been shit for many years now) and country, so how can 'we' even love another culture ?

    Despite that, don't blame ALL the french, cause we are cool, hence our high presence on the english internet (sankaku is full of us~)

    >> I say better off start invading france and change the snobbish attitude of those Mo Fo's they don't know the meaning of entertainment if it slapped them in there huge @$$ noses.

    But seriously guys, that song is one of the most annoying ones with Miku. It's that area like with many touhou songs that it's so annoying that you start to like it.

    This show is pretty popular and serious in France and even though is broadcast in a pay channel, free streaming is available.

    A lot of French people like japanese culture.

    As a French Otaku, I understand what they mean. Miku Hatsune is cool but paying for listening those song is a little sick. It has to be say and no harm was done by saying it in this show, it just mean it's true, you have to face it.

    But the idea is cool, I'm talking about the hologram and I like Miku too not cause of her singing. Sometimes I use her as my wallpaper.

    Peace

    The french only like french things. They discounted the japanese 'porno' statues even though they were the ones to invite those statues over.

    Apparently, the French's appreciation for Japanese culture is pretty lacking.

    I wonder what's going to happen next?

    Am I mistaken in that Miku isn't really liked much outside of Otaku culture? I mean aren't more of her work Denpa songs anyway? Japan is a technological hub of course, so Hatsune Miku is a revolution in more ways than one, especially that concert, but I figured it wasn't uncommon that this music grated on the nerves of those not embedded in the otaku culture?

    ...of course that's not an excuse to not consider France a waste of time and space. Please continue either way :D

    This is why the french are not to be taken seriously. They have nothing but hate or indifference for things not of there culture.

    I say better off start invading france and change the snobbish attitude of those Mo Fo's they don't know the meaning of entertainment if it slapped them in there huge @$$ noses.

    I really don't want to hate on the French. I really don't. But then I see them coming close to competing with Japan in the xenophobia category and I don't know...

    Of all the songs they could have shown, it had to be that one.(Facepalm)

    I like Hatsune Miku but Even I can't stand the intro to that song.

    Don't underestimate French snobism ! We're not just snob about things coming from other countries, we're snob about things coming from our own country first.
    Actually, ranting could be considered a national sport for us.

    As a result, we're probably one of the less patriotic country on the planet.
    Here's a survey that kinda demonstrate it :
    http://www.reuters.com/article/idUSL2626428720070427

    Also the guys on TV are living in their own little world. They're not as popular (quite the oposite) in the french crowd as japanese celebrities are in their own country.

    Lol at all these France-bashing comments, and all of you are right about French TV. These Frenchies really have the guts to say something disrespectful to our goddess Miku. They are simply jealous because Miku is bigger than the entire country itself. This site bashes China and now it bashes France because of this.

    Edit: I don't condone racial discrimination and it's not the country's fault.

    Hello, I AM FRENCH !!! YEA !!

    Just to tell you guys some things...

    1. I didn't even know this program even exists.
    2. Actually our "representatives" are just retards, it's not all french's fault.
    3. We're fkin late about all anime related stuffs, it's seen as kid's stuffs, heavily censored (when it come to be broadcasted)...etc

    If this continue (remember the canceled expo earlier ?) i think french on the net will hide the fact they are french... Just because of a bunch of useless geezers :|

    Don't judge all frenchs on unknown crap TV show.

    [info] this has been displayed on "Canal+" TV which is private encoded (pay to watch) TV channel.

    Pourquoi t'excuser à la place de quelqu'un qui n'a apparemment pas les mêmes gouts que les tiens ? C'est pas nouveau que Tania à des gouts douteux, comparer Miku à Gorillaz... juste ça suffit à discréditer sa rubrique, et c'est pas une question de jugement d'un tel ou de l'autre, mais ce sont deux type de musique différente.

    To Kamuro, She wasn't really comparing the style of music, she was comparing the way they do live performances. When I saw Metalocalypse live they did they same thing, ish.

    I do agree that one shouldn't apologise for someone else, but for different reasons. Simply put we all have our own opinions, so we need only excuse ourselves. The girl above has poor cultural relatism, and that affects her opinion, but that doesn't warrant an apology for it is just that, an opinion.

    You don't have to apologize for the ignorance of others. Some of the people here apparently can't difference between "a few idiots on TV" from "the French people", but that's their problem. I'm willing to bet that every country in the world has a few brain-dead monkeys that would be willing to mock a foreign culture they don't understand on TV.

    HEHE France thinks they are top of the world in everything and because of that, everything not French sux. Typical French BS.

    Thx for the amuzing story. Im not a vocloid fan either (The only thing Vocloid has on me is the hot girls. The rest is pretty dumb). However the charm is with the girls I think. The songs all sux, almost reminds me of euro pop. Ya... that bad. But shit.. this is France. Its to be expected and ignored LOL

    lol...they don't have a clue what they are talking about. Miku's singing might not sound natural, but it is that unique style of singing that make she who she is.

    If people want to compare Vocaloid's singing with real people, they should compare it to Vocaloid like GUMI instead.

    Being french and a vocaloid fan, that bullshit made my eyes roll around so hard I'm still dizzy 10 mins after. Please don't go thinking that bitch is representative of France -_-

    The human brain is quite adept at recognizing humans. Basically if we see something like Miku, we will naturally say, "she," even if we should be saying, "it." So there isn't anything wrong with this person's statement:)

    "Makes she who she is"

    If there's anything wrong with that sentence, it's the grammar. When referring to a ship, we can say 'her', but when referring to a virtual GIRL, we can't? You've got to be kidding me.

    Some people talk about their plants, furniture, cars, penises etc. as if they were people. That's somewhat natural if they feel the object is precious - it doesn't necessarily mean they're complete schizophrenics. So talking about a virtual PERSON as if they were real is somehow wrong? Give me a break.

    Get a grip on... reality? You mean, get a grip on YOUR reality, the one where logic doesn't exist? No thanks...

    Shut your hole ignorant fag. The "she" I was referring to is not just about the character design that represent her, but the software/application people use for assisting song and music composition.

    "She" is "real" and people can buy "her" for around 15,000 yen.
