GUMI is an official mascot character of Megpoid (メグッポイド) which is a singing synthesizer application software powered by Yamaha’s Vocaloid2 and was published by Internet Co., Ltd. Megpoid was voiced by Megumi Nakajima and released on June 25, 2009. It comes with 3 demo VSQ files, “Happy Birthday”, “be MYSELF” , and “Hitori Yurari”.
“be MYSELF” is an original song by Nakajima and it had also, previously been covered by Meiko Sakine. The voice range is F2 - A4 and its optimum tempo is 60 - 175BPM.
The design of Gumi is by the manga artist Yuuki Masami. Her name “GUMI” is probably named after Nakajima’s first name. Gumi has bright green hair and wears red goggles on her head. This is a parody of both her theme color and a character which Nakajima voiced, Ranka Lee from Macross Frontier; her design is similar to Ranka Lee. Her fanmade character item is a carrot.
