New unit, ANFLA, to release first album, Unlimited

ANFLA is a female trio formed with well-known Niconico utaite, Wotamin, Vivienne and Kakichoco. They will be releasing their first album on September 12th, 2012. The title of the album is 'Unlimited'. The name ANFLA is combination of the word 'anti' and 'flatter'.


BOD: Unknown
Years active: 2008 - present
Vocaloid impersonated: Hatsune Miku
World is mine
Her name Kakichoco was decided by herself, when she was uploading her first song in NND and she ended up seeing a persimmon seed chocolate in her house (persimmon seed = kaki). Kakichoco is said to be one of the most versatile female utaite in NND. Her list of covers had spanned almost every genre from pop, ballad, rock, hard rock, jazz, etc. It's said that she can sing basically anything.

BOD: Unknown
Years active: 2008 - present
Vocaloid impersonated: Kagamine Rin
Kisaragi Attention
from Y to Y

She has a thin, stringy and bouncy voice which can hit high notes very well, and she has the ability to scream well in her covers; therefore, she has one of the most well-known Rin-type voices, and often plays the Rin part during collabs for songs such as Mr. Music and Juvenile.

BOD: April 20, 1987
Years active: 2008 - present
Vocaloid impersonated: GUMI, Hatsune Miku, Kagamine Rin
She likes the colors Red and Pink.
Utada Hikaru is her favorite artist.
Nisoku Hokou
Sweet Devil (HachioujiP original)
Mozaik Role (DECO*27 original)

She has a well balanced range as she can hit both relatively high and low notes. She often does collabs with Clear, forming the pair 'Clewota'. Wotamin's voice has a wide range. She can sing low songs but she can hit high notes too. Wotamin can sing in any genre but she specializes in upbeat songs more.

A lot of utaite use drawings to represent themselves, especially if they don't like showing their faces :3

Eeeee <3 ANFLA!!! I love this unit so much! :) Thanks for posting about them so Arama can know more as to how talented they are!

You might want to change Vivienna to Vivienne in the profiles though so as not to avoid confusion!

liime_arix 4th-Sep-2012 12:16 pm (UTC)
Thanks, I kept reading Vivienne and then saying Vivienna lol.

The names can be quite confusing! <3

Only recently learned of VALSHE's origins and bought her latest single, so this post of more NNU talent instantly grabbed my attention. I'm liking what I'm hearing, not quite as much as VALSHE, but definitely up there! Shall keep an eye out for these gals. Thanks for the flawless post. :)

BTW I'm still a little foggy on how it all works because I don't follow Vocaloid that much. Do they cover Vocaloid songs and then start doing originals? Or does someone hear their covers, sign them up, and do the art for them? Kagamine Rin seems to be a popular character for people to cover/impersonate. Sorry for the Vocaloid/NNU newbie observations and questions.
liime_arix 4th-Sep-2012 02:42 pm (UTC)
From what I can understand, they usually start doing vocaloid covers (but they also cover other songs from anime/games/J-pop as well). They usually collab with artists from Pixiv to do their art:

They usually there after, I assume after getting a following, would release a CD (could be a complete cover album or contain originals). They usually sign with a promoter/agency (some that I've seen are indie or usually do anime related stuff). There are some that get to go major and become professionals like Valshe, ShounenT, Piko, etc.

I wonder if I was helpful ;;

That was super helpful! Thank you! :)

Those avatar illustrators are so amazing. *____*
liime_arix 4th-Sep-2012 03:37 pm (UTC)
I wish I could be that good, but I haven't drawn in such a long time, I've gone extremely rusty.

But their art is so good, I'm always in awe.

YATTA for Wotamin~.

Vivienne and Kakichoco are ok. I never really liked them in terms of how they sing; plus for Rin covers I prefer VALSHE. But they all sound great together. I'll be adding this to my Niko Artist collection.

But, ah, VALSHE used to do Len, right?

Wow, these three singing together. Flawless vocals.

Album is probably something I'd have to hear a lot to get into, seems the crossfade isn't enough to decide.

I know Vivienne more for her paradichlorobenzene and antichlorobenzene covers (and the "awasetemita" mashup of the two? Mindf###ingly amazing.), and I absolutely love Kakichoco's cover of "KiLLER LADY" by 8#Prince P (which is kind of a holy shit R-18 song, so, haha you were warned).
