Hoshikuzu Yuzuko (星屑ゆずこ(ほしくずゆずこ)) is a voicebank for the UTAU and UTAU-Synth program.

History

Yuzuko Hoshikuzu was a character conceived back in 2010, but was released as an UTAU voicebank on April 5, 2017 with a VCV compatible voicebank released the summer of 2017, under the name of Yuzuko Hoshine. Her 2 Appends titled "Calm" and "Excel" were released on her 1st anniversary, April 5, 2018. On January 1st, 2019, Mei-Saime made a post on the official Twitter of Azure Fragment about name changes to the group and Yuzuko's surname, which became Hoshikuzu instead of Hoshine. She is set to have a beta VCV voicebank to be an improvement of her previous incarnations along with beta Chinese and English voicebanks. Her new revised design was revealed on March 1st, 2019.

Concept

Yuzuko is a 17-year-old high school student and a mage who specializes in magic, and also psychokinetic abilities. Due to her "older-sister" type personality and the fact of her lineage heritage, she is given the codename: "Eternal Goddess". Her theme color is #FCAA95. Originally, her design had brown hair and blue eyes in an array of costumes in the lolita category from a maid styled uniform (2017) to a frilly type purple dress (2018). As she goes into her new design, Mei wanted to portray a gentle, sister-like character, but brimming with beauty and an easy approach for newcomers to familiarize.
