JubyPhonic is considered as utaite?
in my point of view, the answer is no. i only count the singers with their main activities on NND are utaite. The one who just use NND as their sub account will not.
Like *namirin, she is clearly considered as utaite since she has some covers on NND only; Mes can be considered as utaite too since she has a lot of collab works with utaite community. In contrary, JubyPhonic is not. And, following the requirements here, her works on NND even not passed the singer spotlight quality yet.
utaite means singer,not someone who has AC in NND ,bro
well, Japanese people don't create that word for "singer" in geneneral because they have other word 'kashu', if u want to discuss about the language instead of the definition that we are using for this wikia. Why don't u consider her as a youtaite? since many people accept this word and use it to classify 2 type of covered singers.
As far as i know, u can be called an utaite when covering songs and uploading it to Japanese sites, not to an international site of a company from outside Japan like youtube. They have different magazines for utaite and youtuber in Japan and i haven't seen any singer who is active on YT only can be introduced in utaite magazine. If u know about Japanese culture, u will understand my point of view, that the Japanese people will not think they are the same.
thanks. I think I misunderstood :3
"Utaite: (歌い手) is a Japanese term for people who cover previously released songs and post them on Nico Nico Douga and YouTube under the utattemita category. The term "utaite" is unique to Nico Nico Douga singers, making it different from Kashu (歌手), which means "singer" in general."
Actually recently they are expanding the sites for the word 'utaite', if u are singers on TmBox or through TwitCasting (i'm not sure about koebu but they may be still acceptable). However, Youtube is another case since 2 companies did have legal problems before (they are enemy on business field) and i see they seperate the users on 2 sites into different groups.
yape,YT has a battle with sony music and had with NND,lol :"
What do you think?
