The March issue of Kodansha's Monthly Shōnen Rival magazine published the final chapter of the Gumi from Vocaloid manga on Tuesday. Enji Tetsuta launched the series in the April 2013 issue of the magazine last March.
The manga followed Gumi, the mascot girl of the Vocaloid voice synthesis software Megpoid, as she makes a boy's musical dreams come true. Tetsuta drew the manga in collaboration with "Internet," the Japanese software developer that makes Megpoid. Kodansha published the second compiled book volume in December.
As Monthly Shōnen Rival explained in its ad for Gumi from Vocaloid, Megpoid and other Vocaloid software allow users to create vocal songs from scratch, without a human singer, by entering melodies and lyrics on a computer. Megpoid in particular uses voice samples contributed by singer and voice actress Megumi Nakajima.
