Her design is also the first to not be based off of a school uniform.
(and more like a RPG LOL) Though I do like her singing voice, and was suprised that the less-than Engrish version of Amazing Grace Smile

-waits for nenodoroid/figma- lol.

Reminds me of Tear Grants from the game/anime "Tales of the Abyss"

Sorry, but when I hear that voice I see a biker chick in red leathers. XP

Fun!

I wonder with all the popularity of the Vocaloids, what are the chances of an actual anime coming out of this?

The difference between her and Hatsune Miku is quite impressive. Nice to see a new design, and that sample is much better than I expected.

I wonder what this software will be like in 10 years ... completely natural singing in several languages?

D= Stop forgetting about Kaito and Meiko~

I'm really excited about Luka though. ^__^ It'll be great to have a new Vocaloid, I wonder how the fanon will end up treating her? xD She's got a great design, too.

And what was really incredible was the explosion of fanart in the hours since this has been announced. o__o;; There's over a hundred images tagged with her name on Akibakko. I'm kind of impressed, and kind of scared. xD lol.

Interesting, a vocaloid that could sound like Rider from Fate Stay Night.

Her outfit makes her look like a Suikoden character.

So, if they are very popular, why isn' there an anime? Can it be done? Would it be as popular or be a another crappy story? How do you guys imagine it?

It's a more generic character design. Dunno how instantly recognizable a symbol she will be.

She is HOT!

Her character design looks more Japanese-Chinese than Japanese-English. I am VERY curious how this is going to turn out since English is soooo not as easy to pronounce as Japanese...

The voice sounds OK, it has sort of a sultry jazzy quality to it. But Vocaloid songs always sound so monotone to me. I don't think I'll be giving up real people music anytime soon.
