Character

Aki is generally a warm-hearted person who’s kind and helpful. They might be a little shy for the first time but after a few hours, they're very outgoing and chatty. Their gender expression is something between androgynous and feminine.

They're bad at lying and defending themselves. New situations make them often nervous and can be coward and clumsy at times.

They like their girlfriend UTAU/DeepVocal Aino Erufu, white pet rabbit Möykkyli, apple pie, cafe au lait, and cute things.

They do not like their little sister Toka Kiia, black coffee, and cooked fish.

Software Issues as noted:

• Sounds feminine when singing in falsetto register.

• Although the voice can go as low as C3, it has a strong engine noise in the lower register. For users, avoiding using 3rd octave is advised.

• "ha" phoneme can be strong and choppy. This is due to the absence of -CV samples.

• Due to configuration error, some "r" phoneme transitions are unnatural sounding more like a trill than a tap.
