Only in Japan can you be bombarded with anime to sell a damn product. I want my Pocky to be moe-rific too!! Laughing

So how come the guy doesn't get to sing about what treat he's representing? Oh pooh, that's not fair.

Do we have this kind of thing outside Japan? No?
Okay, I guess it's Japan fault to make everything moe.

I really like the moe character design, and the song is quite catchy too. Moreover, they're representing my favorite snacks Very Happy
By the way, it is written there that the song is created with Vocaloid, but which (or who)? Don't tell me Glico is planning to create its own Vocaloid character series.

I really love their designs and the video's super cute. thank's for sharing.

I cant seem to find the vocaloid behind the vocals though. It doesn't even sound like one tbh, even the newer voicebanks do not have that kind of clarity.
One of the sources links to a page comparing them to the designs of twin vocaloids Rin and Len, but at best those sound like this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0kynZ3Gc4RI

my guess is that its just some other idol who was told to try and sing like a vocaloid? or possibly even just normally sounds like that.

but Glico's video description doesn't mention any of that, so who knows.

Or simply a singer who used auto-tune.

The article is inaccurate. The singer is, in fact, Chii Arredondo, https://www.youtube.com/user/lolichiidesu/, an American contracted by the company to do the vocals.

Her facebook announcement of the video is here:
