Optional Background / Personality Info
Aiko is a biodroid (primarily artificial, but with some organic aspects) designed to perform, sing and play instruments. She’s easily distracted and spends most of her time daydreaming or goofing off, and her temper is as short as her attention span. She can be loud, proud and belligerent and hates being seen as vulnerable.
Aiko has a particular love of high places, and enjoys traveling in flying vehicles or looking out from observation decks on towers or skyscrapers. She also enjoys playing pranks and thinks up elaborate schemes to get back at anyone that she perceives to have wronged her, though they usually end up backfiring somehow. On occasion, she’ll slip into a Tennessean accent due to her language processor malfunctioning, typically when she loses focus or becomes particularly aggravated.
Appears to really like Omanyte, has a fondness for monsters and dinosaurs, moonlights as a magical girl and also might be Kagami Kawaiine’s sister…
Voicebank Sets in Progress
Japanese & English Dual Pack:「Atmosphere」
Multiexpression, 4-pitch VCV JP and VCCV EN combo pack of Nimbus (strong), Cirrus (soft) and Stratus (mid-tone).
A package containing VCCV Korean, CVVChinese, nJokis VCCV Spanish and VCCV German. May include more languages later.
“Twisters” – Experimental Banks
An English voicebank recorded with a strong Southern accent.
Was going to be “Nimbus” but was renamed due to a microphone upgrade. Will be released in 2023.
Formerly “RockLoud”, this will be Aiko’s standard “strong” voicebank.
Formerly “PopMellow” (which never quite got recorded), this will be an in-between for Nimbus’s strong tone and Cirrus’ softness. Same pitches, expressive samples and aliases as Nimbus.
Formerly “BalladSoft”, this will be a soft and breathy voicebank. Has the same features as Nimbus and Stratus, but with an added voiceless whisper CVVC.
An experimental/joke bank, formerly “Model-C”, which will have an over-emphasized Southern accent.

Commerical vs. “Doujin” Use
There are certain instances in which media made using the Kikyuune Family may sold without a commercial license. For clarification, please reference the below definitions of “doujin” versus “commercial” usage:
Physical items that are self-published, printed and sold in limited runs/quantities. These include CDs, books/zines, prints, small trinkets (charms, stickers, etc.), and so on.
Doujin materials are intended for hobby than for generating income. They do not produce a noticeable profit, as the sales essentially only cover costs of production.
For simplicity’s sake, items produced non-profit for charity also fall under this category.
Commercial (License Required)
Continuous or large-scale reproduction of a product intended to create profit. This includes physical items that are sold at multiple events or locations, or via online print stores such as Redbubble, Spring, TeePublic, Inprnt, DeviantART, Cafepress, etc. This also includes sales or streaming of digital music, or other forms of digital content monetization.
“Commercial” works as described are FORBIDDEN without purchase of a commercial-use license.
(I’d prefer, however, if you contacted me beforehand just so I can see the project!)
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 fine.
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 incestuous sexual or romantic media featuring pairings between any of the Kikyuune Family characters.
The Kikyuune Family characters may NOT be depicted in pornograhic/erotic/R-18 artwork.
