Another year has passed again and it’s the time of our annual statistical report.

The year 2017 was a little more special with the 10th anniversary of the most recognized vocaloid – Hatsune Miku. We got to see a vast amount of the songs (and albums) that were published in the celebration of the two-digit milestone. The event page on VocaDB lists total of 229 songs and 40 albums released around the date of Miku’s birthday.

According to the first work -tag, there were over 400 artists new to the vocaloid scene the past year. By comparison, the total number of active vocaloid music producers was around 4700.

  1. Thanks Shiroizu, I’m surprized by the ranking of Clean Tears album, how are you ranking ? Number of hits on the reference or number of people that have flagged the album as owned ?

  2. The albums are ranked by the rating count. With the collection count sort, the list stays the same except the positions for Clean Tears and HachioujiP albums are switched (3 & 4).
