I get bored easily. I like lots of things. I also dislike lots of things. Ciaossu.

Kay, so these YT/NND artists who cover Vocaloid songs and Jap songs in general are called utaite.
Didn't think I'd have to dig up this old thread of mine but... http://thecolorless.net/posts/show/5278 :D
We don't have a thread on our own Vocaloid covers though so.. I guess this thread isn't totally redundant? :3 Idk also kinda delirious right now with a fever so why am I even here.
@kosuke ShounenT! <3 His voice is so soothing!
Some of my favourite utaite are: Valshe, Wotamin, 96neko, Piko, Pokota, Glutamine, Nami, ShounenT and the list goes on. XD
Also thought it would be appropriate to tag you. @momimochi

Way to derail my post @gargron LOL. I want my post to be visible as last post goddamnit. XD /blames gargron Loljk. Well actually I'm not kidding. I want my post to be last post so the recipient of my message can see it. Well that is assuming that they care at all and wanna see what I ranted about.
Hey you, you know who I'm talking to (this could possibly be a pun).
I've done some reflection on myself. Perhaps my actions were too rash, reading back, I don't even remember what I was getting at. I think I keep leaving these things to rot at the back of my mind, hurting myself every time I remember them, so I might as well let it all out here, in an outlet I'm sure you will click upon out of curiosity.
These few months since leaving the safety net of high school and the connections I had developed there have been rocky, with ups and downs. Being me, I craved friendship, yet was hesitant to approach people, so I felt very alone. During this time, I began to feel a strange resentment to everything... You, for not being there for me, our conversations noticeably dwindling to a mere greeting, silence, then farewells. Myself, for being reliant on someone whose face I've hardly ever seen, for lacking the ability to make friends easily, to not have many close friends who I can share my insecurities with, and for the idiotic pride which prevented me from reaching out more.
You probably don't get it. "Why don't you just talk to me? I'm there, I'm just busy so I don't start conversations myself." I don't like looking needy. I don't like starting conversations. I don't want to tell you this because I'm worried that you'd judge me for it. I felt like I was being left behind. After all, if we haven't had a proper conversation for a month, don't you want to talk to me too? Or am I the only one who wonders what happened?
This growing resentment of mine, towards everything, made me decide to let go of everything, to start again. After all, destruction is needed for recreation. I told you this. I thought it was the best idea at the time. Then a certain CL member's hammer of judgement came down and smashed all my reasons, for everything. I felt that it would be weird to suddenly backtrack, tell you "nevermind, loljk, I was drunk teehee", so I didn't say anything.
But these past few weeks, I've realised, that maybe, I don't really suck that much as a person. I'm not alone. There are actually many people who care for me. I don't have no friends. I can actually make new friends. It's not that bad to rely on internet friends, after all, they are my friends, it doesn't matter whether I made them over the internet, or face to face. And, with the first year mark since a loved one's passing drawing close, I realised that I should stop putting off solving problems I have with those I care about, before it's too late. Time is irreversible, if I take too long waiting for something to change, I may lose the chance forever.
So I'm extending my hand to you again, let's have a fresh start, you and me, here and now. You know where to find me. I'm gonna shamelessly spam you if you haven't seen this within a couple of days and reply. You know I'd do it if I say I will. It took a lot of courage to write this and post it so... might as well bare it it all.
Oh and thank you for remembering, it really made my day.
[And why yes, I did revive this age old thread. Had to do some searching to find it.]
So playing around a little, I realised that my little guy could turn into Lulu with a few adjustments.
So much kawaii.
It was a tough decision, choosing between reki's design and Teru's as first. I'll explain the reason why Reki's did not come first later on. The reason why I chose Teru's first was because it overall is a good design. The outfit is well balanced, despite being monochrome (which also fits the site's namesake "colorless") and it doesn't seem too plain/boring as some submissions unfortunately were but also isn't too "out there" like others. I particularly like the cord with the plug and the power button on the hoodie, they seem insignificant but they are the little details that make the whole outfit stand out and not be "boring".
His overall body language (incl. the inwardly pointing feet) gives off that perfect CL vibe - we may seem a little unfriendly and aloof on the surface but really, we're all soft and cuddly once you get to know us.
The only thing I have to really complain about is that there just seems to be a little something missing, to quote @Low, "Technically the best performance, but there is absolutely no zest." Absolute is an overstatement but I do agree that it's missing something vital, just can't place what it is exactly.
Second Place Reki's Now for Reki's. The art is great. I can see both male/females liking this type of character, though he is a tad to the "bishounen" side. I also really like the shoes and how they incorporate the logo as well as the cool tattoo on his collarbones and the bottom of the shoe. The addition of the server on his side is pre' cool, makes me feel like he's working hard for our sake. Meanwhile, the lollipop he holds gives a more "fun" impression, akin to the whole tsundere thing Teru's has going on. However, the outfit he is wearing is really quite dull, there's nothing really special about it, which is unfortunate since it is the main body of the design.
Similarly, the facial expression of the character is too neutral, it just doesn't really embody the CL feel.
Edit: So I was given a heads up that my vote might not count if I didn't choose a proper third place.
Kiboune's The overall design suits the purpose, also fitting with the monochrome thing that I feel fits CL. Although I'm not a big fan of the striped shirt and the tie, the outfit is pre' balanced. The only thing that I really have to complain about is the glasses, they really put me off the design. The red just doesn't feel right, and I'm probably sounding like a picky, pedantic asshole right now, since there really is only that tiny bit of red in the picture. But it could have looked just as good in a light gradient grey, showing the eyes (and hinting transparency).
Watched the first two eps and it seems promising with the great animation. Read the manga and I'm not sure if it was because I was half asleep/drunk but it's kind of confusing and way too fast-paced. I actually like the anime adaptation is better.
I don't know if it's just me, but whenever the giants smile creepily, I am reminded of that photo @SENsei posted up of himself. DAT CHESHIRE GRIN.
Hopefully there will be some Halloween parties I can go to or themed events at clubs.
Otherwise, I'll host one myself.
And my real name = "epidemic".
