1st Song Contest[edit | edit source]

The first song contest was announced on April 21, 2022. Applications started on May 1, 2022 and ended on July 31, 2022.[1]

What's up? Pop!, the winner of the 1st round song contest

The winning songs were What's up? Pop! by Capchii, Yaminabe!!!! by cosMo@BousouP and Jinsei by Ann-MeltsP.

What's up? Pop! was added on December 23, 2022.[2] The judging comments for What's up? Pop! were:

キラキラかわいいPOPでfutureコアな楽曲で、音数がかなり多く複雑なノーツ配置にできそうです。ミクの声もかわいい成分多めで楽曲に合わせて作られており、高速で複雑なだけではなくボカロ曲としても素敵な1曲です!全体がハイクオリティで超高難易度楽曲となりそうな楽曲なため採用とさせていただきました!
It is a sparkling, cute, POP, future-core song with a fairly large number of notes that could be used for complex note placement. Miku's voice is also made to match the song with a lot of cute components, making it not only a fast and complex song, but also a wonderful Vocaloid song! The overall quality of this song is high, and it is expected to be a very high difficulty song, so we decided to adopt it!
Yaminabe!!!!, the winner of the 1st round song contest

Yaminabe!!!! was added on March 4, 2023.[2] The judging comments for Yaminabe!!!! were:

BPMの激しい変化に加え、最大BPM300という超高速。ただずっと高速なだけではなく、低速も混ぜ込まれた揺さぶりがプレイしている人を想定して作られたかのようないやらしさをしています。さらに歌詞にも「これが真のラスト一撃」などリズムゲームとしての遊びも随所に散りばめられていて、超高難易度としてふさわしく採用とさせていただきました!「覚悟を決めて召し上がれ」という歌詞がぴったりな譜面になりそうです。
In addition to the drastic changes in BPM, the maximum BPM is a very high 300. It is not only fast all the time, but the shaking mixed with slow speeds is so disgusting that it seems as if it was designed with the player in mind. In addition, the lyrics, such as "kore ga shin no rasuto ichigeki," are scattered throughout the rhythm game, and we have decided to adopt this song as it is appropriate for the ultra-high difficulty level! The lyrics, "kakugo o kimete meshiagare," seem to fit the score perfectly.
Jinsei, the winner of the 1st round song contest

Jinsei was added on June 2, 2023.[2] The judging comments for Jinsei were:

バーチャル・シンガーを6人使った複雑な曲にも関わらず、それぞれのパートでキャラらしさも出しながら曲調が大きく変えられておりリズムを取るのが難しそうです。曲終わりの高速パートもシンプルに難易度を上げる要因になっていて超高難易度となりそうなため採用とさせていただきました!概要欄にある”音ゲーマー25年目、ボカロP15年目の全てがここに。”というコメントを存分に感じられるかと思います。
Despite the complexity of the song with six virtual singers, it seems to be difficult to keep the rhythm of the song, as each part is very different from the other, while also showing the character of each singer. The high-speed part at the end of the song is also a factor that simply raises the difficulty level, and since it is likely to be extremely difficult, we have decided to adopt it! We think we can fully feel the comment, "25 years of rhythm gamers, 15 years of VOCALOID producer, all here."

2nd Song Contest[edit | edit source]

The second song contest was announced on July 26, 2023. Applications will start on August 1, 2023 and end on October 31, 2023.[3]
