Video tags/nicknames from Japanese Sonic fans

Since I don’t have the consoles for the newer games, I usually check on YouTube for a playthrough. Most of the time though, I checked Nico Nico Douga (a Japanese equivalent site for YouTube) because I want to hear the Japanese dub and Junichi Kanemaru’s voice heheheh.

Nico Nico Douga is known for its unique… viewer’s comment system. While I watched the videos, I noticed that the Japanese fans has their own nicknames toward the Sonic characters. Most of them are funny, while the other are adorable and the rest is weird. Nonetheless, they are quite interesting.

Also, the viewer could add additional tag to the videos. If the video tag is not locked by the uploader, chaos will definitely ensues lol. The tags is not that much different with the nicknames. Here is some nicknames and video tags I stumbled upon so far:

  • 世界一かっこよかったハリネズミ / Sekai ichi kakkoyokatta harinezumi (The world’s coolest/most attractive hedgehog) : Refers to Sonic, obviously :)
  • 音速紳士 / Onsoku shinshi (Speed-of-sound gentleman) : Again, refers to Sonic. And it’s kind of heartwarming how they acknowledged Sonic’s gentlemanly qualities.
  • 世界一かっこよかった自宅警備員 / Sekai ichi kakkoyokatta jitaku keibiin (The world’s coolest/most attractive home guardian/security) : Refers to Knuckles lol. Sometimes he even called NEET from not being in touch with the outside world.
  • セコム / Secom : Refers to Knuckles. Secom is a famous Japanese security service company. Now put one and one together.
  • ナッコ / Nakko : Refers to Knuckles. Short from ナックルズ/Nakkuruzu, Japanese pronunciation of Knuckles; used solely by Sonic on Sonic X episodes especially when Knuckles was being naive or being fooled by Eggman/other people—equivalent to Knuckie.
  • ニラ饅頭 / Niramanjuu (Leek Bun) : Refers to Knuckles. It became popular because of a certain episode of Sonic X where Knuckles shouted it on top of his lungs. Knuckles really has the funniest nicknames lol.
  • 棒読み / Bouyomi (The Monotone) : Refers to Tails’ Japanese VA, exclusively on Sonic Adventure and Sonic Adventure 2 (which the fans has come to an agreement that he sounded quite monotone…  still cute for me, though).
  • 髭卵 / Hige-Tamago (Mustachegg) : Refers to Eggman. Sometimes he called as 卵 (Tamago/Egg) only.
  • 片道切符(さん) / Katamichi kippu(-san) ((Mr.)One-way ticket) : Refers to Mephiles, taken from his dialogue on Sonic the Hedgehog 2006, and has become a quite popular gag among the fans with various MADs.
  • 汁婆 / Shirubaa (Soup old-woman) : Refers to Silver, a play on his name’s Japanese pronunciation, シルバー / Shirubaa.
  • もふもふ / Mofu-mofu (Fluffy) : Refers to Werehog because… just look at his furs! :3
  • マッスルズ / Muscles : Refers to Boom!Knuckles because… yeah ¬_¬
  • 人類には速すぎる動画 / Jinrui ni wa hayasugiru douga (Video that’s too fast for the mankind) : Sometimes used to tag Sonic Unleashed playthrough video, because the day stages could be really fast. I personally find this one charming because Sonic’s speed is indeed too fast for the mankind :)
  • 神曲 / Kami kyoku (Godly song) : Not a Sonic-only exclusive tag, but used quite frequently when some BGM played in the video. Should I really explain this one?

Just open up your eyes, why don’t you grow up and see?
But what the hell is “growing up” and tell me when will I be?
Can a single person out there just explain it to me?
Hey, just tell me how
It’s not like I care now!

hey i got stuff to do but i rather draw some weird Lost Ones Weeping fanart because dang that song just hits me right in the face everytime

NicoSound has officialy shut down


NicoSound Site 

This is sudden and I am sorry, but I will close the site due to various reasons. I’m afraid this is selfish, but thank you for your patronage until now.

This is the first paragraph of that announcement. I’ve been waiting for an official announcement from NicoSound since I wouldn’t believe it has shutdown until I see one, now here it is. NicoSound’s situation has been unstable since this time -> LINK due to Japan’s new copyright laws.

So guys, say good bye to NicoSound. Let’s find new alternatives for extracting audio from NicoSound. I might do another blog post later for recommendations.

Thank you NicoSound. Otsukaresamadeshita.

reasons why u should listen to utaite music
  1. their voices are hella rad just listen to this or this or this
  2. they cover some amazing A+ quality songs so if u don’t like how vocaloid voices sound then u can listen to real people singing them wow gr8
  3. you dont know what most of them look like so its easy to focus on their vocal talent rather than their faces
  4. most of them are regular folks like u, and a lot of them also like anime/manga/video games/visual novels/basically a lot of the same stuff u like (my fav utaite, ayaponzu is a huge madoka magica fan) and ofc if u like vocaloid then hELL YEAH bc they do too~~
  5. a lot of them have adoRABLE PERSONALITIES and sometimes if ur lucky u will catch one of their livestreams or someone cool will upload clips and tHEN YOU CAN LISTEN TO THEM TALK
