Revision as of 05:30, June 18, 2019

Aiko Kikyuune (Kikyuune Aiko ( 気球音アイコ )) is a voicebank for the UTAU and UTAU-Synth program.

History

Aiko was originally created as a fanmade VOCALOID character named Hazuru Sora in June 2009. She was modified, given an UTAU voicebank, and subsequently released July 10, 2009 as part of Project UTAU XYZ, an UTAU character series created by MystSaphyr. (The project has since been rebranded as Studio VOXYZ as of 2016).

Concept

Likes: sweet foods, video games, revenge

Dislikes: spicy foods, sore losers, being seen when crying

Character item: blue helium balloon (sometimes depicted as Fuu--Aiko's pet balloon--an inanimate-object UTAU also created by MystSaphyr)

While Aiko has a basic personality given to her by her voicer, it is not "canon" information. She may be depicted in any way as long as it follows the Kikyuune family and UTAU software terms of use.

Aiko is tomboyish, and awkwardly lanky and tall. She's easily distracted and spends most of her time daydreaming or playing video games, and her temper is as short as her attention span. Aiko has a love of high places, and enjoys traveling in flying vehicles or looking out from observation decks on towers or tall buildings. She can be loud, proud and belligerent; she hates being seen as vulnerable to others. She sometimes slips into a Tennessean accent, moreso when she loses focus or becomes particularly aggravated.
