Luka Megurine is the third Vocaloid2 in Cryptons character series. Unlike the previous Vocaloids Luka can sing in both Japanese and English. The name Megurine can be read in Japanese as the sound that travels the whole wide world and the name Luka invokes the homonymous Japanese words of nagare flowing and ka song or kaori scent. Yuu Asakawa provides Lukas cool yet husky feminine voice. Luka was designed by the Japanese illustrator Kei who had previously created the designs for Hatsune Miku and Kagamine Rin and Len. However unlike previous mascots in the series her costume is not based on a school uniform. Overall Luka serves to bridge the gap between both languages and has proven to be her appeal as a vocaloid. Her voice is provided by the Japanese voice actress and singer Yuu Asakawa
