I think that your guide how to oto CV is overall good very helpful for beginners. However, I have to disagree with the part that how to configure y/w-glides.

The y/w-glide sounds better and are on time when oto the first consonant how you usually do and then place the red line where the first consonant ends and glide part is just going to begin (in the case of the image down below, between "k" and "y"). Then cover whole y/w part under pink area, so UTAU won't stretch it.

This technique can be also used for non-japanese languages such as oto "bla" or "pra" for English/Spanish for example. Instead y/w, the second consonant is r/l.

I suggest to considering about re-writing this part of oto guide. Thank you.
