    As in, a type of voice (ex. powerful young girl voice), not a voice with technical issues (ex. badly oto'd voice, unclear voice)

    It may just not appeal to you, or you may just be tired of that type of VB.

    Powerful young female voices like gahata meiji are kind annoying imo the voice type is over hyped/over used

    I personally find the kire thing a bit overused, I get that people want to emulate power, but it sort of gets badly done most of the time.

    Depends on the song, but I'm kinda sick of hearing overly adorable voices.

    Each time I happened to despise a particular voice type, I always ended up recording a UTAU with the said type

    BUT I will even risk myself at saying expression-less voices disturb me.
    I automatically imagine a GPS trying to sing a lullaby
    ...and it's disturbing.

    I'm not a fan of banks that sound like the voicer was trying too hard. Not as in they didn't put in the work, but rather the equivalent of someone who can't sing, try too hard to make themselves sing. It just gives off a pretty bad tone and pronunciation that I kind of just roll my eyes at. I like the natural sound and fluidity of a bank. I actually don't mind a good kire or power bank in general as long as it's not like what I stated above ヽ( ´ ∇ ` )ノ

    It seems like people are complaining more about the misuse of Kire rather than the actual kire voice type

    imo, I dislike kire.
    They just sound so unnatural, no real person would go from a low soft to a shout high in regular singing and the variation is way too exaggerated.

    ermm...Strong yet childish voices...also (they sound like screaming...well...children)

    ...Overly exaggerated/deep male voices that sound like they should be in a children's cartoon rather than a voicebank.

    to name a few.

    Most singers I've met through choir get significantly louder when they sing higher because if you don't get the proper support, you usually sound like you're dying, lel.

    But I agree it is a bit exaggerated.

    Nasal voices - not so much the timbre (like some voices are akin to... a violin or brass instrument - ritsu's voice reminds me of such), but some voices that are nasal (assuming it's not for stylistic purpose such as sharp appends) just come across as being incapable of singing from the diaphraghm and resonating properly and it shows that the voicer can't sing.

    And I'm just gonna add my own input here, The main problem with Kire VBs usually it seems is that people are just loud for the sake of being loud.

    Since Ruko Yokune Kire and Namine Ritsu Kire, people kind of assume that louder = better, but don't take into account the needed breath support and comfortableness singing with that force, so they sort of just scream and assume it'll sound good.

    AND THE BIG PROBLEM IS people usually DO think it sounds better louder (even if the stress in the voice is obvious, people usually think it sounds emotional or dramatic.)
    And it's kind of a cheat, because people will flock to those banks which motivates people to do more banks like that.

    Kire can be really good, but it shouldn't be for the the sake of just being loud. It should be what's best for the voice. If it's not natural for the voicer to sound that way, it'll be obvious.

    Quieter VBs don't appeal to people sometimes because they don't sound dramatic or emotional. But a quieter bank can have just as much expression if you record the pitches with variety (ie. Yamine Renri).

    But people usually don't do that with quiet banks either and, like kire banks, just record a quiet bank for the sake of it being quiet for quiet songs.

    I really tend to like most voice types but I think like really childish, nasally voice types are something I can't listen to for too long. Some of them can be okay, but a lot end up coming out as chipmunky and odd. (I say this as a person who tried to make a voice like this once, it sounded terrible.)

    I don't really like anything too forced (unless it was done on purpose to get emotion into the bank Example: Hana's experiment bank) but something that's forced alot and for something that's not supposed to be forced doesn't sound all that good for me sometimes.

    and also i dislike the high pitched banks made by like younger (sometimes older) people to get the child effect and then when it also ends up really loud

    I don't really like voices that sound forced, or voices in which the Japanese pronunciation is just not really there (if it's a Japanese UTAU made by someone who doesn't have a basic understanding of the Japanese Language).
