Voicebanks

Two years after Meiji's release, Saccu began releasing append-like voicebanks themed around fairy tales and magic. These voicebanks cover a considerable amount of singing styles and genres and are considered the successors to the original three voicebanks. All of her voice banks can be downloaded on her official voicebank download page. These voicebanks were released on March 8, 2014.

As of November 11, 2019, Meiji has been discontinued and her website and voicebanks are no longer available. She has been succeeded by Saccu's newer UTAUloids, Bibi Jyougasaki and Wistaria Toujoh.
