Tohoku Itako (東北イタコ) is a Japanese VOICEROID2 voicebank by AH-Software Co. Ltd. in collaboration with SSS Co., Ltd.. She is capable of speaking and singing (as an UTAU only). She was released November 8th, 2018.

Her voice provider is Ibuki Kido (木戸 衣吹; Kido Ibuki).

ConceptEdit

In 2014, she and her younger sister Kiritan were successfully crowdfunded to have UTAU voicebanks developed. Later, in 2017, she followed her sisters and had another successful campaign to become a VOICEROID.

Her birthday is June 24.

HistoryEdit

A goal of ¥4,500,000 was needed: however, she achieved a total goal of ¥10,300,000, which was even greater then the amount Kiritan had achieved in her own fundraiser.[1]

On September 27, 2018, she was officially announced for preorders via press release. [2] She was revealed to have three expression parameters not unlike the VOICEROID2 versions of Yuzuki Yukari and Kotonoha Akane & Aoi, but instead of having emotional parameters like happiness, sadness, and anger, she instead has "Powerful," "Sexy," and "Flustered."

On June 12, 2020, it was announced on Zunko's twitter that there would be a new crowdfunding campaign related to Itako, with full details coming on Itako's birthday.[3] Two weeks later, on June 24, it was announced that Itako's new crowdfunding campaign would be for the development of a new singing voice project.[4] When details of the fundraiser were revealed, it was announced that money would be raised for the development of creating a singing database that could be used for research into singing software. The goal was for Itako herself to become an "AI Singer," not unlike Kiritan's NEUTRINO bank (which is commonly referred to as "AI Kiritan").[5]
