posted on 2011-07-26 01:15 EDT by Daryl Bunao
Vocaloid music artist Oster Project posted a music video for her song "Alice in Musicland," the final track off her Cinnamon Philosophy album released last October, on the Nico Nico Douga service on Sunday. (To turn off the display of superimposed comments, select the word balloon icon on the bottom right corner of the video.) The nearly 12-minute long video features six tracks sung by the various Crypton Future Media Vocaloid characters re-enacting a musical adaptation of Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll.
The story centers around Alice (voiced by Hatsune Miku) as she follows the White Rabbit (voiced by Kagamine Ren). In the process, Alice stumbles upon a fantasy world known as Musicland and meets a colorful cast of characters including the Strange Singer (voiced by Kaito), the Mad Hatter (voiced by Kagamine Rin) and the Empress (voiced by Meiko).
Despite being posted less than two days ago, the video has ranked first in number of times a video has been favored the day it debuted. The video is also shared and subtitled through the English version of Nico Nico Douga.
Update: Corrected detail that Oster Project is an individual, not a group of musicians. Added link to subtitled version.
