Out of the Box: Exit Tunes Presents Vocaloanthems ft. Hatsune Miku

Good evening everyone! Tonight I’ll be bringing you guys a quick review of the unboxing of my most recent Vocaloid collectible. This might or might not be the start of a new type of article here on the blog so feel free to give some feedback if things like un-boxings, figure reviews, collectibles continue to interest you.

Yesterday I received my official first edition of Exit Tunes latest and highly anticipated Vocaloid Album release: “Exit Tunes Presents Vocaloanthems ft. Hatsune Miku. For those who are unaware, Exit Tunes is a Japanese record label which has released a several Vocaloid collaboration albums so far including the well known Supernova series. Their compilation album “Exit Tunes Presents Vocalogenesis” was the first Vocaloid album to have the distinction of topping the Japanese Oricon Sales Charts back in May. It is important to note that Exit Tunes is not the producer of any of the music found in the album. Given the very diverse nature of top Vocaloid songs and the plethora of producers who create them it is often necessary for labels like Exit Tunes to compile them into these type of albums for better sales success.  Its also fair to say that the title is also bit misleading, as not only does it feature the world’s most famous virtual diva, Miku Hatsune, but it also includes songs featuring the voices of Kaito, Ren Kagamine, Len Kagamine, Meiko, and even upgraded UTAU program Teto Kasane.

Follow me after the jump for some photos of the item, a look at the goodies that came with the 1st edition, and a review of the tracklist.

I admit that I wasn’t all that high on the ColossalCon 2010 Dealers Room selection when I first went through it last Friday and I honestly still believe that the it really was rather subpar. However, this being my second-ever convention and my first after becoming a massive Vocaloid fan I was nevertheless determined to bring home at least a few things for myself and even a gift or two for some of my good friends. So Saturday morning with a bit more determination and a little luck I was able to find several small but exciting trinkets that definitely brought a smile to my face for a reasonable price and I was definitely a little more impressed with the dealers. Please follow me past the jump to see a small photo-diary of all my purchases and try your best to excuse the ultra-amateur photography courtesy of my lack of skill and half-broken camera (no snide remarks panda!).
