vgperson is vgperson in japanese

Hi! I'm Kate, but call me vg, vgperson, or vghime. I'm the popularly-elected Princess of Vocaloid and a prolific translator of Japanese.

This blog is primarily about translated content, but if there's no source and it doesn't look like it's a translation of something, I probably made it myself. (An "#original ___" tag is a guarantee that it's, well, original.)

Feel free to ask me questions via Tumblr. Or you can send an email to vghimmel at gmail dot com.

Also, it’s not originally Vocaloid, but I feel like I gotta include this.

Right at the start of the year, Fummy released The Witch’s House: The Diary of Ellen on Kindle, with my English translation. Which… was my old translation at first, so it had to be updated once I actually finished revising it anew. But still, that’s my first published book translation - a strong start.

Later in January, Uri released her remake of Insanity, her first released game which I initially passed on translating, but this time I was like, might as well. Then, possessed by an idea, I made REM-9: The Yume Nikki Randomizer, a weird experiment I actually had a lot of fun making. Not that I ever beat a Nightmare Mode seed or anything.

In February, I split off OSTER project’s Twitter on my site into its own page, and got more serious about keeping up with it. Her tweets continue to be incredible, so go look at it. I also started providing subs for her music lectures, and the very gay Passenger Seat Road Movie.

When the first conclusion of Witch’s Heart came out later in February, I… got a fever that exact day. But I translated it as quickly as I could once I was better, even if that meant briefly overlooking the all-important “hoowilla-hawalla-zazoom.”

On March 1st, I released my translation of Your Turn To Die Chapter 3, Part 1, Section A. Yes, despite optimistic estimates, Section B has yet to release. And unless Nankidai said something clear-cut in a stream I didn’t see, who really knows for sure why that is. But for frick’s sake, don’t be a jerk to them about it, especially in replies to me on Twitter. There have obviously been extenuating circumstances. It’ll be done when it’s done, and I’ll translate it when it’s done.

(crickets chirping)

In July, I subbed OSTER project’s gay Cat and Balloons, Kenshi Yonezu’s absolute banger Shock, and more OSTER music lectures.

In August, Kenshi Yonezu released his album STRAY SHEEP, so I translated the lyrics for all the songs (including the video for Campanella, and later Canary) and someinterviews. OSTER project also posted her amazing gay remix of Bubblegum K.K., featuring singable English lyric captions by me.

Last but not least in August, my co-op puzzle platformer All To Get Her had its third anniversary, and I decided to make it free (pay-what-you-want). You should play it! It’s very gay!

In September, OSTER debuted as a Vtuber(s). Unfortunately, she’s mainly been doing long streams that aren’t feasible for me to subtitle, but it’s good. Also, I never mentioned this anywhere, but this was also the month I made some Stardew Valley mods??

October saw the release of The Case Book of Arne: Case 1 (which I actually translated back in July). It’s a good series I’m glad I got to translate, especially if it means being asked to do more Nico Game Magazine games. (Ruica…)

Unrelated to me, Game of the Year Petal Crash came out… but suddenly related to me, I started fan-translating it into Japanese because the files were there and it seemed like a fun challenge?? Don’t take this to mean anything, I have very little experience translating into Japanese and am still hoping some native speakers would look at it before I’d even advertise it as usable. (Also, it’s still incomplete, because it’s very low-priority.)

In November, Sen released the Mad Father remake on Steam and Switch, which marks my first translation to appear on a console. Wild. Also, Playism redid the translation for Noel The Mortal Fate Seasons 1-7, and I helped edit it. That might seem weird to mention here, but without getting too deep into embarrassing details, while the unedited translation was of good quality, making it fit the limitations of the game was a highly involved process that often required a translator’s skillset, so, yeah.

In December, there were a tonofinterviewsforTheVOCALOIDCollection, as well as a Fafoo one around the same time by some strange coincidence.

I’ve been very busy for much of the year, but I’d like to think I’m freeing up some time now. Segawa released her new game TOWER of HANOI recently, and while I’ve yet to even start playing it, I definitely intend to translate it, much as the size of Segawa’s games scares me - it’ll likely be my priority when I have time for free translations.

Miwashiba did also release The Faceless Double Chapter 1 earlier in the year, and I’ve been putting it off ever since. (To be honest, I… wasn’t exactly thrilled by it…) Still, someday. Incidentally, Miwashiba has said Ayakashi Akashi is on hold until Double is done. And I haven’t really made a decision re: their silly short game LФⅤE.

As mentioned, I’ll translate the rest of Your Turn To Die when it comes. Witch’s Heart should be getting another game next year as well. And there are various other free games I want to look into when I feel I can afford to do so, but who knows when that will be…

As usual, I’ve been occasionally working on original games and stories, which included starting a new game project that occupied a lot of my time in that March-June gap. But nothing to really show. You should be excited for all these things regardless.


Not really sure how to end this post, because you’ve probably heard it all already, and I’m just a little hime doing what she can to make people smile. Whether it feels like you accomplished a lot or a little, and whether those things feel significant or not, I hope you can take pride in what you’ve managed.

A collection that shall live for 1000 years - no, 100 million!

Also, there were plenty of remixes for The VOCALOID Collection. Can I offer you a nice Macaron (EZFG Remix) in this trying time?

An interview with Sugaru Miaki (Fafoo) about the theme of “the end of the world.”

Be warned that there is, naturally, discussion of end-of-the-world scenarios, which also gets into talk about death and disasters.

It’s been about 2 months since I released my album to the world. The peak of summer has passed, and I hear you can see snow bugs now in the north. When I open my iPhone schedule app, the original postponed date of my concert is displayed in a faint gray, like an unselectable choice. I planned to go to Hokkaido on the coming 11th and 12th, but rather than busily preparing for that, I’m spacing out in my room.

========== The Power Move ==========
Beyond Dimensions (Oniku Kurumi loves Hatsune Miku)

If you’re wondering about all the “Co-” songs, they’re for a project led by Yuro Mashima for a bunch of people to make songs all with the same title. This time around, that title was “Co-”, but the idea was to base the song on a word that started with “co”… though Yuro Mashima seemingly did the galaxy-brain move of choosing the prefix itself. Also, what word each song is actually using is a little vague in some cases, so my names may not be totally accurate.

And of course, I’d be remiss not to mention OSTER project’s arrangement of Bubblegum K.K. (Turn on English captions.)

Kenshi Yonezu - Campanella

(Click here for my English subtitles.)

She can be Hatsune Miku, because (gesturing broadly) you’re here.
