Following the demo at Magical Mirai this year, the “Living with Hatsune Miku” project by Gatebox has its key visual revealed in today’s site update, and features none other than the illustrator LEN[A-7], best known as the official illustrator of Magical Mirai 2016. The rare sight of Miku in an apron eagerly waiting at home, outfitted with an original costume, is quite a charming scene to behold.

While the demo featured LAT Miku model, the finalized model will be based on the key visual as shown. The project is due for March 9th, 2018 release. Would you like Hatsune Miku as your virtual home assistant?

Also announced in today’s update is the additional sales details for Gatebox units, which announced to open from November 28th at 12:00 JST to December 11th at 24:00 JST. Be sure to visit the official site listed below for more details!

I admittedly haven’t heard too much of the music produced with the recently released Hatsune Miku Chinese voicebank, but this one is definitely what I’d call a star example of what music producers can do with the software. “The Miracle Of The Star” by Mikai Music both looks and sounds beautifully made, and takes on an uplifting Drum and Bass style. A wonderful ride from start to finish!

The song has been fairly popular on Bilibili, reaching 190,000 views since it was uploaded on November 4th. It was also recently shared to YouTube and Nicovideo for overseas fans to enjoy! Check out the official music video below.

The Vocaloid producer DaniwellP, best known as the original creator of the Nyan Cat song, has been busy with releasing a lot of new content. Among these are new games, songs, albums, and surprisingly, a MikuMikuDance model! DaniwellP is definitely a Hatsune Miku community favorite, so here’s a roundup of his recent works.

If you missed the quick announcement from our social media, DaniwellP created a fun and very addicting webapp called Mikutap, where you can generate random Miku sounds to the rhythm of background music. It’s both uniquely cute and fun! Check out the official trailer above, and the webapp from the official site → https://aidn.jp/mikutap/

Protip: You can add the webapp to your device’s homescreen as an app to quickly launch it from anywhere! Just use Chrome or Safari’s “add to home screen” option.

Daniwell releasing a Hatsune Miku model for MikuMikuDance was definitely an unexpected surprise for sure. Rather than something “life-like” or an attempted mirror of Miku’s normal style, Daniwell went the creative route and went for a more simplistic, block-styled Miku, but with its own unique charm. It even has a neko ear option! Download it from the official site → http://aidn.jp/mmd/box_miku/

Tying in with the MMD model release, Daniwell also created a short music video using the new model, and surprisingly, the Hatsune Miku’s English voicebank. At just 23 seconds in length, it’s perfect to have as your ringtone. In fact, Daniwell also makes it downloadable from his official site, so go nuts! → http://aidn.jp/sound/

Lastly, Daniwell released his 3rd album “UCHU ZENBU” a couple months ago, and it was sadly overlooked by many. But it’s definitely worth a listen and addition to any Hatsune Miku fan’s collection! Check out the official page for all the shop links → https://aidn.jp/daniwell/uz/
