Vocaloid Reincarnation – Ghost in the Shell

motoko-cityscape.jpg

This is the signature tune to the original Ghost in the Shell movie, 謡Ⅲ~REINCARNATION / Utai III Reincarnation, by the esteemed anime composer Kenji Kawai, and hauntingly styled on a Noh chant; however, it has here been given a rather interesting Vocaloid workover, with singing provided by Meiko and Ren.

Tachikoma Miku

Tachikoma Miku - Tachikoma holding a leek/negi in tribute to Hatsune Miku - ネギを持っているタチコマミク

Why is it holding a leek? For that matter, why does Miku hold a leek? Whatever the answer to these important questions, this is a great looking figure, as expected of a figure a year in development; apparently it also has a lot of die cast parts, hence the metallic finish. Not cheap either.
