According to our source, Vocaloid company YAMAHA has made a hasty decision about their new Vocaloid trio, ZOLA PROJECT. They’ve decided to kick KYO out of the group.
In an interview, one YAMAHA representative states, “He’s just not needed. There’s no point for him to be there with the other two.”
When asked why they believed so, the same representative responded, “KYO is weak while the other two ‘ZOLA PROJECT’ members are strong. WIL has a soft but fierce poetic voice; YUU is a young, masculine voicebank with a lot of potential. KYO sounds like the other male VOCALOIDs put together, there is nothing unique. This is why it’s going to be ‘ZOLA DUO’ instead of ‘ZOLA PROJECT’ from now on.”
YAMAHA has since then put up a notice on their official website that says “KYOが同性愛者である” According to our translators, this roughly means “KYO is discontinued from the project.”
The company refuses to answer any more questions on the topic.
