(From left) 鳴花ヒメ・ミコト (MEIKA Hime & Mikoto) Illustrated by △○□×

The spirit of the provincial flower, the plum. A pair of vocaloids born in Fukuoka in March 2019. These characters are speech synthesizers as well as VOCALOIDs that are compatible with the speech synthesizer software, "VOCALOID" (singing voice synthesizer software) and "gynoid Talk" (text recitation software), voiced by seiyu Koiwai Kotori and employing illustrator △○□× (Miwashiba) for their character designs. The pair is made up of the boundlessly bright moodmaker, Hime, and the 'tsukkomi' (straight man in Japanese comedy) who coolly suppresses her, Mikoto.
