Following up on our recent article of Hatsune Miku’s debut in episode 15 of “Shinkansen Henkei Robo Shinkalion”, we’re happy to share that official uploads of episodes 15 and 16 are available on YouTube from Takara Tomy’s channel!

The episodes don’t feature any English captions (yet!), but Takara Tomy is allowing submissions of community translations! If anyone out there is confident in their Japanese skills and would like to help translate the episodes, go for it!

EDIT 5/18/018: The official uploads seem to be purged after a period of time, so we are embedding new mirrors of the original source. We also added episode 17, and added English captions to the videos (credits to Weeaboo-Shogun).

Time to go over the top 10 Hatsune Miku songs uploaded to Nicovideo during the month of April 2018! As always, we’ll be looking at the songs by how many views they received on a daily average, rather than total views, since each song is uploaded at a different time of the month! We also choose Nicovideo as the platform, since the songs are always featured on Nicovideo, but not always featured on YouTube.
