Yummy!

It's hard to tell from that small picture how much of good ol' Miura is in there. The blue shadowing on the clothes and the "gracefully decending look" reminds me of his art a bit, though.

This character has a katana and some sort of armor, I like how it looks different from the vocaloids. Badass but then again, can't beat the overwhelming moe of Miku.

But I like her. Or, wait, Gackt is male, right. So his voice must have a male character too. But it's a girl.

Oh, right, Griffith...

I'm looking forward to the flood of new Vocaloid videos on YouTube =D

The design looks pretty cool, actually... The insane moe of Miku though (Especially after having read her 4-koma, which is one of the cutest things I have ever seen) still takes my heart.

Anime hyper I'd also like to hear the pitch of the Vocaloid...

The artstyle doesn't look like it was drawn by Miura to me. Confused

Whoa. I couldn't really see the details of the Vocaloid/Gacktpoid from ANN's picture, but the one that Rawshark provided is clearer.

I never imagined that Gackt was that... pretty. I'm waiting for all the people on YouTube who find this vocaloid, thinking it's a girl, and hear a voice more similar to KAITO's rather than Len's.

(Anime hyper Len's character design was obviously a guy's, while his voice was more iffy because he's the shota type, and now the character design for Gackt's Vocaloid is rather androgynous (but that's probably what it was meant to be) and his voice is obviously a guy's. Ahhh... Irony.)

I can't understand why people aren't satisfied with simply putting Microsoft Sam through a reverb.

This looks more like Griffith Toki than Gackt...

Oh my gosh, Kentarou Miura... designed a character based on Gackt?

Kentarou Miura and Gackt.

I think I'm having an aneurysm.

On a serious note, I was just going to quietly pretend this Gakupoid thing wasn't happening until I saw the character design. *_____*
