Series Introduction[edit | edit source]

Machine Gun.png

The Putin-P series is a 4-part series composed by numtack05, starring Hatsune Miku, Kagamine Rin, Kagamine Len, Megurine Luka, and Camui Gackpo.

In the series, Miku, Rin and Len are Vocaloids, Luka is a human named Elena, and Camui Gackpo is also a Vocaloid.

Other things to keep in mind, Russia and America's relationship is crucial to the series. One of the most likely reason they were chosen is because Ronald is an icon of American culture while Putin is the leader and represents Russia.

There are two types of characters: the ones who were present in the Russian Era, and ones mostly present in the Vocaloid Era. The Vocaloid Era happens in the modern day, though some characters were alive in both, like Putin and Teppannov, who are involved with both eras.

This page mainly covers interpretations and common FAQs, as well as general information. Separate parts have been made for each part of the series.

(Further timeline in each part)

McDonald's History[edit | edit source]

With more than 230 outlets across Russia, McDonald’s now controls about two thirds of Russia’s fast food industry.

It all started in 1976, at the heart of the Cold War, and it took 14 years to bring McDonald’s to Moscow. After 14 years of intense negotiations with Communist Party politicians to open its first outlet in the Soviet Union, a quote from Loshak was:

"McDonald’s was not so much a fast-food chain but rather a symbol of freedom. A symbol of Western values coming to Russia. No wonder the Communist Party objected so fiercely, but at the end it didn’t have a choice."

McDonald then set up a branch in Russia on January 31, 1990; not too long after the Cold War between America and Russia ended.

Soviet Union's History[edit | edit source]

Vladimir Putin became head of the Committee for External Relations in 1991 and became president in the year 2000. He was re-elected president of Russia in 2012, and will hold office until 2020. The collapse of the Soviet Union happened around 1991, at that time, Russia was at great turbulence. Oddly at the same time, McDonald's restaurant too was suffering in an economical peril during the late 1990s.

The child-soldier named Irina lived with her dog in this era.

Vocaloid's History[edit | edit source]

Rin and Len were released on December 2007 by Crypton (or in this series, it's just 'the factory') who set their ages as 14 year old. Do note that they're Vocaloids and not exactly humans; so they might not be effected by age.

Rin and Len from the Vocaloid Era were previously programs made by Elena that were made with the memories of Irina and her dog from the Russian Era; at some point, their "memories" of the Russian Era were erased and stored in disks kept by their producers. Miku, on the other hand, was a Vocaloid in the Russian Era that was utilized by Urusei Teppannov before she separated from him and became an idol in Japan. When the subtitles in the videos change from yellow to red, it usually means the Vocaloid is speaking under their former programming.

Real Characters[edit | edit source]

These are the main characters based on people in real life.

Vladimir Putin[edit | edit source]

Putin Icon.png
First seen on: It's the End! Voice / Vocaloid: None
Role: Neutral character

Vladimir Putin is the President of Russia and plays a vital role in the Putin-P series. Like Ronald, he's present in both the Russian Era and the Vocaloid Era. Not much is known about him, other than the fact that he is either highly admired or well resented by many.

Putin is confirmed to have never met Irina during the Russian era, although Vocaloid!Rin said he was her idol and worked for him nonetheless. Elena also seems to care deeply for him and worked for him more closely before defecting, although it's made clear he didn't care about Elena. However, at the end of the series, he was almost assassinated by Teppannov before he commanded 2 men to shoot him, which just goes to show that Putin isn't particularly adored by everyone.

Please note that Vladimir Putin and Putin-P are two different people.

(Physical) Appearances:

  • The Voice in My Heart.
  • Goodbye!

Ronald McDonald[edit | edit source]

Ronald Icon.png
First seen on: From a Dream's Point of View Voice / Vocaloid: McDonald advertisement
Role: Neutral character

Ronald McDonald is a drug dealer who sold drugs in both the Russian and Vocaloid era. He's a very crucial character; and should not be underestimated. Ronald is Miku's boyfriend, before he disappeared after his normalization process was completed in the song In the Night that Can't Be Seen..

Ronald's voices came from Japan's McDonald's advertisements and had appeared in many songs in the series. Other than that, he, like Putin, are present in both the Russian Era and the Vocaloid Era (McDonald's was created in 1956, they set up a branch in Moscow on 1990 after the Cold War).

Ronald possesses good survival skills, shown in Under the Cherry Blossoms, where Rin buried Ronald alive and he escaped.

(Physical) Appearances:

  • Let's Dream.
  • Under the Cherry Blossoms
  • I'm Happy!
  • Stealing is Wrong?
  • In the Night that Can't Be Seen
  • With the You I Can't See

ウルセイ・テッパンノフ (Urusei Teppannov)[edit | edit source]

Unknown Hawaiian T-Shirt Guy Icon.png
First seen on: Yet I want to Sleep! Voice / Vocaloid: None
Role: Neutral character

Teppannov made his first appearance in Part 3 in Although I want to Sleep!. He is a hitman working for Putin, who also was Elena's childhood friend in the Russian Era. He eventually defects because of this, as seen in the second The Voice in My Heart..

He's proven to have athletic skills as a hitman and was able to hunt down Elena repeatedly. He could also tell it was Elena despite the fact that she was in disguise in Let's Take A Trip!).

Teppannov is seen wearing a Russian soldier uniform (see Although I Want to Sleep! and With the You I Can't See) meaning he is indeed Russian. Although Elena didn't seem to recognize him in Let's Take A Trip!.

In the song Muku china Hito, Numtack05 mentioned Teppanov as the person who created it, making him a composer--in reality, he's Miku's previous owner from the Russian era. In The Voice in My Heart, a retired producer named "Tetsufu-P" made an "appearance".


  • Although I Want to Sleep!
  • Let's Take A Trip!
  • The Voice in My Heart.
  • The Voice in My Heart O
  • With the You I Can't See.
  • Goodbye!

FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)[edit | edit source]

Who's that guy in the beginning of each video?[edit | edit source]

He is Vladimir Putin, the current president of Russia. Not to be mistaken with the composer of the series Putin-P / Numtack05.

Read more in his section of the page .

Why does Rin say "nya"?[edit | edit source]

It is confirmed by Numtack05 on his blog that Rin says "nya" as an a way to look cuter by an association with cats, as also shown when Rin wore a cat outfit while singing Assassin!. Rin in particular tries to associate herself with kittens by replacing the word "nya" with certain particles.

Why is Miku dating Ronald McDonald?[edit | edit source]

The two fell in love anywhere after Rin and Len began attending Miku's school, as she begins changing her outfit and eating fries after Magic is Heresy. The two have an increasingly deeper relationship and is regarded as true love that affects Miku for the entirety of the series. Ronald himself is a joke character, as the original premise of the Putin-P series in fact was to make funny videos involving Ronald McDonald. Despite this, Ronald in the series itself is a real character with a physical presence, not metaphorical. Subsequently, he leaves an impact on the story and other characters.

What is "LaLaLaLa Happy"?[edit | edit source]

Lalalala Happy had appeared in the following songs:

  • Let's Dream. (Rin)
  • Not Together (Len)
  • The Eyes that Don't Vanish. (Miku)
  • The Voice in My Heart. (Luka)
  • The Broken Mirror (Camui)
  • With the You I Can't See (Miku)

Lalalala Happy is sung whenever the characters are on drugs or denying reality.

Why doesn't Part 1 have any pretty pictures / videos!!?[edit | edit source]

Lineup CV02 Rin's first illust.jpeg

It is explained in Track 0; It's the End! that Rin had arrived on the internet. Not too long after Hatsune Miku's release; Crypton announced a new Vocaloid "Kagamine Rin" back in November 8, 2007.

The very first illustration of Kagamine Rin on the internet (not counting the silhouette Rin in Crypton's blog) was the illustration in Part 1; which represents that "Rin had just reached the internet"

The reason why Len isn't there even though he sang in Part 1 is because at first Crypton only wanted to make Rin, while the only available pictures of the Kagamines at the time were their silhouettes, their chibi versions, and a picture of them together.

The changing subtitle colors?[edit | edit source]

Each Vocaloid has a default subtitle color which include the following:

  • Rin = Yellow
  • Irina = White
  • Len = Blue (Part 1) Yellow (Part 3)
  • Miku = Blue
  • Luka = Pink
  • Camui = Black/dark blue/white

The subtitle color changes whenever their former programming is speaking. Sometimes due to the PVs the subtitle colors are white (Example: The Eyes that Don't Vanish.). In special cases, such as Under the Cherry Blossoms, Rin's subtitles are completely pink.

Who is "Human Len" in the Russian Era?[edit | edit source]

The "Human Len", a separate character from the Vocaloid Kagamine Len, is an unknown boy who lived in the Russian era. He's known for wearing two scarves, one red and one yellow. In Farewell to You he's shown wearing the yellow scarf over the red, while in Stealing is Wrong? he only wears red because the yellow was stolen, as shown in No Need to Worryy!!. Because of the theft of his yellow scarf, the boy shot the dog. The timeline is like this:

  • The dog stole the yellow scarf, leaving the boy with only the red scarf.
  • The dog brought the yellow scarf to Irina.
  • The dog got shot by Irina's comrade with the red scarf
  • Irina killed her comrade, and then herself.

Note that this boy isn't Rin's brother. (同胞) written means comrade, college, companion, and not actual blood relations.

Numtack05 = Teihen-P = Putin-P?[edit | edit source]

In 2008 Putin-P's "P" name was Teihen-P. He introduces himself as "Numtack05" at first, which is his NND and YT account name. In the song "Under the Cherry Blossoms" fans gave him the name "Teihen-P", and so from then on, he introduces himself as Teihen-P in his video descriptions (however it's still written Numtack05 in the videos.)

Numtack05's nickname of Putin-P and Teihen-P are not to be confused with the actual characters in the story of the same name, identified in a January character poll. Teihen-P is identified as Rin and Len's producer, with Putin-P's role in the story not specified.

A mini trivia on Teihen-P's name: teihen is a "base" on the bottom of a triangle, and the term "base" in the series is used typically as an insult.

Fiction VS Reality; I can't tell the difference![edit | edit source]

There are various references to the real world and real historical events and concepts; additionally, real people are used as characters in the story, like Vladimir Putin. Numtack05 has joked for people to not get confused about what is just part of his crazy story and what really happened. He at one point clarified that the story itself takes place on computers, hence the ability for media characters like Ronald to make physical appearances alongside computer programs like the Vocaloids.

The final Part of the series, It tells of what Camui, Len, Rin, and Miku did in the Data World.

Len wanted to reach Rin but Camui stopped him; the two had a verbal confrontation before they started to wrestle, but Camui was defeated by Len.

Rin reminisces on her entire history before saying her farewells and resolving to go out on a high note. Her eyes go completely blank and alternatively erasing Rin's entire memory.

Miku met Ronald and, seeing him as reticent and with a "sleeping heart" and decided to remain in the Data World with him while nonetheless leaving Rin's interior. Consequently, Len is now the only one left, not counting a blank Rin.

Len and the blank slate Rin both went sight-seeing around Tokyo and after reminiscing on the past, Len finally confesses his love to Rin.

In the credits a final song is sung by Miku, representing Teppannov, showing a little comic of Teppannov trying to assassinate Putin. After wishing for a better future with himself and Elena, he is shot by 2 men under Putin's command.
