People have mentioned what happened with Ruby but not shown the design she was given by PowerFX.I'm not up to speed on Vocaloid, but some of these look very pale/ white. I've seen you guys talk about that Ruby Vocaloid and say her original design was darker, but what about the first image and the 3rd to last?
This is her design by her voice provider. She is meant to be latina like her.
PowerFX had released their own design, which was admittedly hideous.
Misha, the voice provider, introduced Ruby with the ugly design at AX. She had no idea that this was what Ruby was going to look like. The contract that Misha and the programmer, Syo, had allegedly signed with their contact to PowerFX, demanded that Ruby's design be chosen by Misha. Their contact, Anders, allegedly lied about passing on that design.
Because of the #saveruby campaign, where fans harassed PFX's CEO and called him a racist, Ruby's design was changed back.
Also Misha is an entitled bitch.
