Nero Akita (western order)
Not defined, usually Pop
He has short blond hair and wears sleeveless shirt, knee-length yellow pants and yellow-and-black striped socks. He is sometimes depicted as wearing an outfit similar to Neru's, consisting of a gray sleeveless shirt, a yellow tie, and black pants.
Personality and traits
As per fandom, he is depicted to be more open and a little vain, a contrast to the mostly-tsundere depictions common to Akita family members. However, in Japan, Nero's kinship and his age of 13 years old is considered unofficial.
Recognition of Nero in the overseas community is modest to significant.
Contrary to popular belief, Nero is a creation of Smith Hioka, and did not originate from Rena-tan (formerly; Hankyou). Nero's origins is connected to Neru herself.
In October of 2007, Miku's pictures became unavailable to search in main search engines in Japan, which incident led to the birth of Neru. Most search engines became normal again in a few days, but Yahoo! Japan showed unusual results nearly for a month. On November 21, 2007, the 2ch board discussed in the thread 2 Miku related news, that abnormalities were noted. After the report, the company seemed to debug the search engine according to each of the 2ch user's indications. Soon the users made a spoof character Nero as "Neru's younger brother and a Yahoo! programmer who was debugging the program manually". His concept art was released on the following day.
Configuration: Kagamine Len
Nero has been given a voice at least once, and has been assumed to have originated from Kagamine Len. There is a least one song done to his name. The following configuration is based from Hiyama Kiyoteru.
|BREATHINESS (BRE)||0||BRIGHTNESS (BRI)||30||CLEARNESS (CLE)||30|
|GENDER FACTOR (GEN)||-30||OPENING (OPE)||60||RANGE||C3 to C5|
| SPECIAL NOTES:|
The voice from Kiyoteru is an approximation, and is the closest match to Len-based Nero. His voice range is best used within C3 to C5. Using ranges below may give unpredictable results; use with caution. This configuration was researched by Orochi Herman. Crediting, while preferred, is not mandatory.
This example of configuration on the Fanloid wikia should not be viewed as being widely accepted or acknowledged by the character's creator.
There is currently no media for this character.
Kinship between Neru and Nero is rather sketchy. He may be considered Neru's little brother, but he may be also Neru's genderswap. None are officially confirmed.
Much like how Neru is sometimes paired with Len, he is sometimes paired with Kagamine Rin by Western fans.
- Many people like to believe his character item is a fork and cheese.
- In some fanworks by the Japanese fandom, they depict Nero as a crossdresser.
