For more information on Yukari as a VOCALOID, see here.

Yuzuki Yukari (結月ゆかり) is a Japanese VOICEROID+ voicebank by AH-Software Co. Ltd. in collaboration with Vocalomakets. She is capable of speaking and singing (as a VOCALOID only). She was released December 22nd, 2011. Her software was later upgraded to VOICEROID+ EX on October 30th, 2014, and VOICEROID2 on June 9th, 2017.

Her voice provider is Chihiro Ishiguro (石黒千尋; Ishiguro Chihiro).[1]

ConceptEdit

The concept for Yukari is "She unites you all with her voice" (VOCALOIDに縁のある人達が音(月)を結ぶ).

While Akari is based off stars and starlight, Yukari is based off rabbits and the moon (specifically, the Moon Rabbit).

EtymologyEdit

The kanji for Yukari's last name, Yuzuki (結月), is comprised of "musubu" (結ぶ) and "tsuki" (月). "Musubu" means "to tie," "bind," or "link," referring to her theme of uniting people with her voice. "Tsuki" means "moon," referring to her concept.

Yukari is a common female Japanese name. One possible meaning is "connection," once again referring to how she unites people. Another meaning is "violet," referring to her color scheme.

AppearanceEdit

Yukari has purple eyes and lavender hear tied into two low pigtails - while the pigtails are long in length and reach her chest, the back of her hair is cut short. She has a pink hair accessory that glows, with the same accessory also being on either side of her hips.

She wears a sleeveless lavender tube dress that reaches her thighs. Over that, she wears a dark jacket with pink accents - the jacket is rabbit themed, as seen by the hoodie branching off into two long rabbit ears. She also wears lavender thigh high socks, same color as her dress, and black flat shoes.

Trivia
  • While Yukari is the first VOICEROID to be sold as a VOCALOID, she is not the first VOCALOID with the ability to speak. She is only the second, the first being Ryuto (Gachapoid). However, Ryuto uses V-talk and VOCALOID-flex instead of the VOICEROID software.
  • At the time Yukari was first released for VOCALOID and VOICEROID, she was rather very expensive if you wanted her to sing and talk.
