Fury at China’s “Fake Miku”

fake-miku.jpg

Hatsune Miku fans are outraged at China’s latest “original” creation, a Chinese virtual idol whose looks and live performance bear an excruciating similarity to those of Miku herself.

The video, currently disliked by 1483 and liked by 32:

Miku’s legion of loving fans, whether Japanese, Chinese or western, seem to be outraged:

“China just made Miku red and passed her off as their own virtual idol!”

“They could have headed off most of the critics by just changing her hairstyle.”

“At least give her a decent face.”

“Made In China… Not a big surprise.”

“Why does China not have its own ideas?”

“Red… like communist China. Not impressed.”

“I’ve never seen anything this bad before…”

“Why all the dislikes. Most of you may look at this as a Hatsune Miku rip off, but come on every great star needs a worthy competitor. Just give it a chance, it is about to get awesome. Now we need a Russian and American version.”

“It’s not fake. It’s original. Originally imitated.”

“The voice is faked… it’s a real voice but mixed so it sounded like a computerized voice.”

“China seriously..?!

Then Chinese go around saying everywhere that Japan steals their music contents and now this…

China, be more creative please…”

“Oh China, you have you own Vocaloids in development already. You couldn’t leave well enough alone could you?”

“Welcome to China: The Home of Where we Bastardize Everything, Even your Waifu.”

“I’m ashamed for being Chinese.”

“I’m so proud as a Chinese, copy everything from the world. Only copy the look but never reached the quality.”

    Great music (if you have 5 years)
    I'll never understand why this music seems to be made ​​by an 8bit pc ?!..
    Virtual avatars should evolve, not back in time ..
    How not made a version Blue Miku made ​​in USA? :P

    How is Tupac the American version of Miku or the Chinese copy? That makes no sense at all.

    I'm not a huge rap fan but I'd rather listen to 3 months of Tupac than 3 minutes of that mindless autotuned jack-off fodder these otaku hillariously refer to as music.

    While I was a little angered at 2Pac for dissing Prodigy because of his sickle cell anemia, I have to partially agree with you on this one.

    I don't hate Miku or any of the Vocaloids, I find them interesting and as we improve the technology to approach the realism of human voices, they'll provide a better experience overall. But I prefer listening to hip-hop, though.

    And never mind the disses, the West Coast vs. East Coast wars of hip-hop are dead since the late '90s anyway. So either listening to Mobb Deep, 2Pac, etc. doesn't matter anymore as long as the music is good.

    Oh, and before anyone asks, I'm a white person and NOT American.

    I for one would NOT be listening to Miku if her voice was synthesized to be human. That's part of what being a virtual idol is about, and something rap-lovers just can't come to comprehend (no offense). In the end it still comes down to what type of music you prefer in person.

    Jesus crist, this whole "omg u racist" crap is fucking pathetic. Man the fuck up!!

    It's almost like the word "Racist" has become some kind of shield for practically everybody when they run out of arguments, it's repulsive.

    Instead of crying like a babby every single time someone offends you, instead show yourself the better man and don't give a single fuck.

    With that many people I'm sure there are many Chinese artists who could make something better, I fail to understand why China resist so much to hire a few chinese otakus to make something original. It would be cheapper than all the structure and equipament needed for that horrible show.

    Seeing the amount of ranked chinese pixiv artists there are, I fail to understand why such a crap character design was used.

    Yeah. I know for a fact that there are a few pretty decent doujinshi circles in Hong Kong and Taiwan, so why didn't they ask one of those to come up with something?
    I don't think outrage describes my reaction to Red Miku. Not at all. Rather, I'm completely mystified.

    Money, hire relations who have no art skills and pay them millions of yuans.

    If only China would tap into the possibility of free creativity. So many talents and merits not hired for the job...

    As other articles point out China waste.

    There's a hell of alot of great talent in China. The problem is China's big businesses and industries don't want to shell out more money for it unless it came from somewhere else *cough*government*cough*. Take into account that almost every product made in China can't be sold in China...you really can't be surprised by all the plagerism.

    No surprises here. China envies everyone else's creativity. Mostly because they've stamped out most of her own in order to keep control. sad really.

    I agree 100%.

    She may be a 'knock off' of Miku, but the animation wasn't that bad.
