No, but here is a work item.
so, in song lists, you can add your own comments about the song in the description.
I have a few lists that make extensive use of descriptions - is there a way I can search for songs by their description, in a song list?
Can Piapro tags be mapped as well? It would be cool.
@VY2Yuma he has one! https://vocadb.net/Ar/67099
I hope he get's a V5 Voicebank!!
@zhantianzuo2018 This is strange. I can't find Cosmo's Midnight credited for this song anywhere other than at VNN and in this YouTube upload. It's exactly "Koto Hamana / Mes / KAIDO / Sadaharu Yagi / EDGAR / Hayao Konishi" everywhere else.
I did some googling and here's what I've found.
Koto Hamana (or 濱名琴) is usually credited with lyrics, Mes is a fandubber that sometimes helps producers with English lyrics for their songs, Sadaharu Yagi seems to be a sound engineer/composer, Hayao Konishi is a member of "out of survice", a composer/keyboardist. EDGAR (or Edgar Camey) is somehow affiliated with NewMonkeyStudio, and, judging by a post in his Facebook, he is a recording engineer. Couldn't find any info about KAIDO: his Discogs page is not informative at all, but on vgmdb page of the album we see the following:
Lyricist: Koto Hamana, Mes
Lyricist: Koto Hamana, Mes
(Note that there's no artist entry for KAIDO there)
So now we know for sure that KAIDO is the composer, Koto Hamana & Mes are lyricists (Jap & Eng respectively), which leaves us wondering as to what the other three had done. It would be logical to assume that Sadaharu Yagi was responsible for mastering, EDGAR oversaw recording and Hayao Konishi played keyboard.
Phew. ~~Case closed~~
(Well, this is the hard way, the easier one would be to ask someone who owns the album to look this up in the booklet :3)
May I ask about the creater of this song ? I checked official website (http://1stplace.co.jp/works/specialized/ia04/#about) and it says "絶対領域 | Song by Koto Hamana / Mes / KAIDO / Sadaharu Yagi / EDGAR / Hayao Konishi", so...is "Cosmo's Midnight" equals "Koto Hamana / Mes ..." ?
ps:I 've just signed in......I am confused cuz I do found that data from here (vocadb.net) could be more accurate even than offical website. e.g. the song "ミライ", official website only said that "song by ATOLS", but at youtube ATOLS offcial, we can find out it's actually by ATOLS (as composer and lyricist) and 神無月P (as tuner), and here (https://vocadb.net/S/104650?albumId=24195), it accuratelly said that.
made me feel nostalgic upon my first listen, it's been a couple years now and i still get that feeling.
Even English Wikipedia says that sexual orientation regardless of romantic intent is enough to classify it as yuri. I updated the tag description.
I removed it because I didn't see anything suggestive in it. I mean, come on, it's not even about a romantic relationship ._.
JP Wikipedia states that yuri genre fiction typically encompasses works about romantic relationships between women, as well as very close friendships with ambiguously romantic themes. A lot of works tagged with "yuri" here are very explicit about their themes, but this type of song would also be considered yuri.
Depends on the connotations for those terms. I don't know if there's differences between Japan and west. I guess here "yuri" is usually suggestive, but I'm not sure if it's limited to that. Maybe someone should translate Nico tag descriptions or NicoPedia?
@zodiacrain I think the yuri and yaoi tag are meant for songs which are about such gender relationships, same with the "love" tag, it has nothing to do with them being suggestive or not, I don't get why @mi.chan removed the tag. If they are suggestive, you can add the "NSFW" tag as addition.
Is the yuri tag meant for "suggestive" songs only? The tag description itself is pretty vague.
If the "yuri" tag is meant for any song about two women in love, rather than exclusively suggestive songs, I think it applies. According to the song translation on the Evillious Chronicles wiki, the singer even says "I am in love with you" to another woman.
@BokaAnon sorry for the super late response, but if you're talking about the alias "Fuck You Santa Clause", it looks like it's from Vocaloid Wiki. IMO it's not really a good translation of the title
@ayuumii, @SpaceZinnia - Those are all possible with with the API. Let me know the details if you want help.
conversely, is it possible to merge two custom lists?
Is there an option to make a copy of a custom list without re-adding every song by hand?
about the entry report : https://www.nicovideo.jp/watch/sm21423202
@goldenchild I think they are two different people, just using the same account, like a small team producing songs.
Edit: I worked a lot on their entries, it should be more clear now.
What's the difference with https://vocadb.net/Ar/5312 ? in this song there are different user names : https://www.nicovideo.jp/watch/nm15985469 but the artists entries have common links.
I have a question. is there any source for ero guro being more about despair and absurdity, as opposed to other definitions?
I tried to do some research on this, even aside from the Wikipedia article, but this is the only place (that I can find) that defines ero guro as plain despair/absurdity outside of a sexual or gory context.
could it be this song ? : https://vocadb.net/S/217117
小さな聖夜の手紙 has been subbed
Lack of detailed information, names shown on Weibo that aren't in accord with PV...it's just so TIRESOME to figure out everything when almost nothing can be accessed.
I removed the additional cover tag. It is not needed for songs which are already marked as cover.
Uh Isn't this supposed to be a cover?
@VocalNexus added, thanks for the info.
Avaible at Itunes US, but i don't find a link for reference :/
@Riliane, when an album has alternate versions of a song, please make a new track for the derivative instead of adding the original song as a track. in addition, please add the vocalists to the album entry.
from the entry report:
this song has been deleted by the producer. we usually don't add deleted songs without good reason, such as the song being on an album or having existing derivatives.
Japanese have a little different understanding of what metal in general sounds like.
I take it the people who tagged this as "death metal" have never actually listened to death metal.
Cause this ain't death metal.
is there an appropriate tag for songs that aren't necessarily religious in and of themselves, but discuss or are otherwise related to religion? (for example, カルティック愛情 is about religious abuse, まさに・・・まさに・・・女神サマ！！ is definitely related in some way to religion but is not a religious song itself)
@MoveForward Thank you for your kindness!
@comorebi_notes - I have merged the entries. Thank you!
Thank you! "comorebi notes" is new name of my circle, and "BIRUGE" is old name. If possible, and there is no problem, I want to merge them.
Alright, I just didn't want to merge the entries if Comorebi Notes was actually the name of a circle. If that doesn't seem to be the case, I can merge them.
@MoveForward - Based on the identical links, yes.
Is BIRUGE and https://vocadb.net/Ar/67515 the same?
Also the Published date seems to be Nov 3 2018, not 06.11.2009.
@RenTheRipper - Original media refers to an official upload by the content creator. In this case, your cover should be in Original media, and the other video should not be in this entry. You can see the edit of this entry: https://vocadb.net/S/211056 as an example.
The mad man is back, and you can get most of his albums on bandcamp for only 1,500 yen at 80% off. Get it while you can.
Looks like the album version (youtube upload) is a new/remastered version.
Edit: moved to https://vocadb.net/S/216611
@gift , thank you for the checking.
@goldenchild : "One More Cup of Honey Tea" is the official English title on KarenT (not a translation). The other one is an inaccurate direct translation of the Japanese title.
why is the english translation here so different from this one here : https://vocadb.net/S/61091 ?
I don't know how useful those import tags are anymore considering you can import almost any voicebank to higher Vocaloid editor.
