Yesterday was April 1st, April Fools! “IAFan.com” was the first time we’ve pulled a prank on MikuFan, and we wanted to have a little fun! But fear not, we’re not shifting our focus away from Hatsune Miku, and we plan to stay here for a very long time. But we need our site visitor’s help to do it!

MikuFan has grown quite a lot over the years since it originally launched on March 4th, 2008. But at the same time, our site operation costs have increased. This has been made further difficult due to changes in Yen exchange rates making site costs 50% higher than they were just a few years ago. These stacking costs have made it sometimes difficult for the site to continue breaking even on the bills.

How can you help? Here’s some ways!

Buy Your Hatsune Miku Merchandise From MikuFan Partner Shops!
While we all have our own preferred places to shop, sometimes the shops we’re partnered with will offer better deals! Before selecting your item, consider following any of the links on our “Hatsune Miku Products for Fans” page before making a purchase. The shops wont charge you any extra for it, and they send a little bit of it our way as thanks! Some of our articles will also list CDJapan and Tokyo Otaku Mode links, which directly support our site!

Support Us Directly On Patreon!
If you would prefer to tip us directly, we have launched a MikuFan Patreon page with the primary goal of covering the gaps in our site operation costs. Any extra after that will be contributed towards our site writers bringing you additional first hand event event coverage and exclusives. We hope to someday leave no event details uncovered! A special “thank you” illustration will be made available soon to patrons, while those that contributed in advance will be contacted with a link to the artwork. Just click the image below to check out our Patreon. A small Patreon logo can also be found under the social media buttons of every site article.

Continue Sharing The Hatsune Miku Love!
You can also help simply by sharing our content with more people! More followers also leads to additional supporters, and we grow through the support of fans! For every one of you that has shared our media with others, we’re truly thankful for your help!

Oh yeah, we’re also on Instagram now! With the heavy support from Vocaloid followers on Instagram, we’ve decided to launch our own page! Find us at the instagram icon on the right side-bar (→ if you’re on desktop) or bottom of the site (↓ if you’re on mobile), or just click this logo!

    enjoyed this “little” prank? how? You are the worst admin i have ever seen. Try to delete my comment again.YOU are the second times deleting my comments on mikufan facebook for IA post. Is this the quality that someone you recruited, Crypton?

  • jrharbort

    Except your comments weren’t deleted on Facebook, they’re actually still there. Crypton didn’t recruit us, we’re just fans. Here’s a direct link to your comment chain if you don’t believe me: https://www.facebook.com/MikuFanOfficial/posts/1437271096347055?comment_id=1437968339610664&comment_tracking=%7B%22tn%22%3A%22R9%22%7D

    You’re fans, but not miku fans. True original fans of miku knew that IA vocaloid is not friend at all since the age of kagerous project. It is not fun let that ia-thing wander in Mikufan’s place, you should know that.

  • jrharbort

    Not a fan of that project thing myself, anyway. ¯_(ツ)_/¯
    But you’re allowed to think what you want.

    Really? Crypton is too kind. Btw, not every mikufan had a nice experience with them. I just cannot enjoy such a “little prank”. Probably my comment on facebook is inappropriate, please remove it.
