Optional Background / Personality Info
Akio is Aiko’s older (by design) brother. He is a timid, though very clever, young man who loves nothing more than to learn how things work. He is a tinkerer and can is quite good at repairing anything from a steam engine to a laptop computer; the only problem being he rarely repairs anything. Instead, Akio gets curious and takes the object apart entirely, usually putting it back together with strange or disastrous results.
Akio happens to be dead, after being murdered by one of Aiko’s rogue fan derivatives. But whenever he attempts to tell anyone in the family that he’s a ghost, he gets interrupted somehow.
Working on new standing art/reference sheet!
UTAU: Use G-12 flag on any of Aiko’s banks to achieve Akio’s voice.

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!)

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.

However, songs that allude to sex and sexuality without using such coarse language or visuals are fine.
