Art, Music and Other Fanworks
Content made with the Kikyuune Family voices may use any artwork created for them by MystSaphyr, or any artwork that is included within the voicebank folders, so long as proper credit for the images is given to MystSaphyr and the use is non-commercial.
The Kikyuune Family art and designs may NOT be traced, edited, recolored, or repurposed for any other characters. Similarly, “pitchloids” or any similar sound-edits created from any Kikyuune Family media are strictly forbidden.
None of the game skins, shimeji, or models featured on the Kikyuune Family pages were created by Studio VOXYZ. Users are advised to check their individual terms or readmes.
Commerical Use vs. “Doujin” Use
There are certain instances in which media made using the Kikyuune Family may sold, and certain instances in which it is strictly forbidden. For clarification, here is a distinction between “doujin” versus “commercial” use:
Physical copies of art and music that are self-published, printed and sold in limited small batches at single events. These include artbook anthologies, compilation albums, prints, small trinkets (charms, stickers, etc.), and so on. By definition, doujin materials are meant for promotion and fun rather than generating income, and are often “break-even” operations; they do not produce a noticeable profit, as the sales essentially only cover costs of production. Charity zines are also covered by this definition.
Commercial (LICENSE REQUIRED):
Continued or large-scale reproduction of a product intended to create profit. This includes items that are sold at multiple events or locations, or via online print stores such as Redbubble, deviantART, Cafepress, etc. This also includes sales of digital music, such as that sold through Bandcamp, iTunes and others, as well as YouTube monetization.
“Commercial” works as described are FORBIDDEN without purchase of a commercial-use license from the Studio VOXYZ store.
Propaganda and Hate Speech
Kikyuune Family voicebanks and/or characters should NOT be used for obscene, defamatory, libelous, slanderous and/or unlawful content.
Kikyuune Family voicebanks and/or characters should NOT be used for spreading a political or religious agenda. However, traditional anthems, choruses and chants are perfectly acceptable.
Mature/Obscene Content, etc.
Kikyuune Family voicebanks should NOT be used in songs that describe sexual acts in lewd or graphic detail.
Examples: Wash My Blood, Gomenne Gomenne, Shooting-Star Technica, Gigantic OTN
However, songs that allude to sex and sexuality without using such coarse language or visuals are fine.
Examples: The Madness of Duke Venomania, KiLLER LADY
It is strictly forbidden to make sexual or romantic media featuring pairings between Aiko/Akio and their parents Akihiko or Akiko. Akiko and Akihiko are voiced by my own real-life parents.
The Kikyuune Family characters may NOT be depicted in pornographic/erotic (R-18) artwork.
(Excessive violence/gore is discouraged, but not prohibited.)
Keeping the above in mind, please use the Kikyuune Family at your own discretion. If you are still unsure of media content, simply contact Myst.
