Finana Ryugu – TSUNAMI – TOB Vocal Cover

I am pretty inclined towards hololive Production, but I do watch VTubers outside that from time to time. Nijisanji is included, of course, especially the EN branch. Though the Feesh isn’t one of the members I’m tuned into the most, with the depths of my viewing being nothing deeper than peeks at her shenanigans. Still, with my perversion that’s worse than hers, she gets stuck in my brain hard with just those peeks. As for this first original song of hers that I covered, it’s pretty much the only Nijisanji EN solo original that I like enough to buy a digital copy of so far, especially with the combination of KIRA’s electronic dance pop sound and Finana’s cute and cool and cheeky voice. Also, it should be noted that I used e_ku’s very faithful instrumental remake for this cover.

So how do I put into more detailed words how I approached this cover? Well, basically, and while trying to outdo how wild the Feesh can get, I’d describe it as my sexy cuteness aggression (read: my tendencies toward being a slimy beast on the prowl). The mains were a lot of exercise for my lower register of creepiness, the harmonies ranged from pop-punk yells of desperation to scratchy falsettos of tryharding, and the ad-libs of posing were meant to help present my bored and overboard flexing on the naughty little Feesh as well. And speaking of flexing, a big part of what pushed me to make this cover of this song that’s been stuck in my head lately is outdoing the originally synth vocals of that one part near the end of the song with my very screeching and kinda moaning doubled wails.

As for the audio engineering, I had Leanna work on that. Stuff about it that I’d like to highlight include how she got the Autotune effect kicking in at the start of the song, how she quietly cherrypicked and powerfully tuned my harmonies and ad-libs, and how her frigid mix got me sounding like a boss monster (I wanted to say NieR:Automata‘s Grun, but as memorable as that boss is to me, I feel like I’d be disrespecting that kid’s lore if I used him for the comparison here). Again, thank you very much for your help, Leanna.

With all that said, here’s a link to this cover’s mp3 if you wanna the hear some sounds of me haunting your ass on a more regular basis. And again, I’d like to ask for honest constructive feedback~
