Following the theme of “Animals” this year, the Snow Miku 2018 designed by Taichadon is in a shrine maiden costume with red-crown crane as a motif. She stands amidst the snowy night of Hokkaido clouded in a mysterious yet alluring atmosphere.  The main visual is brought to you by the illustrator Yasumo.

The creativity in Hatsune Miku community surely comes in many forms from Pancake art creations to Hatsune Miku 10th anniversary advertisement project, but for the world’s largest GPS drawing artist “Yassan”, he went further and off the usual scale.

In late September this year, the world’s largest GPS drawing artist “Yassan” created a large-scale GPS drawing of Hatsune Miku across Japan. The gigantic drawing covered a total distance of 1160.99 km (721 miles) and took 54 days in total to near completion, with a few bits of her hair bands left.

On June 9th, 2010, Yassan (real name: Yasushi Takahashi) created the world’s largest GPS drawing spelling out “Marry Me” to propose to his girlfriend. The drawing covered over 7,163.67 km (4,451 miles) across Japan, and caught attention of many around the world. Fortunately, she said ‘yes’. In a few years later he was awarded the Guinness World Record for the largest GPS drawing by an individual.

For Hatsune Miku fans in Malaysia and nearby countries, yesterday was the day most anticipated by many as ticket sales for Miku Expo 2017 in Malaysia had finally begun. The tickets immediately sold out in less than fifteen minutes, but there were also concerns and difficulties throughout the process raised by many.

Below is the quote addressing the matter from the official Facebook page today.

Good News! We’ve received an update from MYTICKETASIA and more seats will be released in the next few days! Due to the high demand and international purchases, fans who have purchased tickets and have an iPay88 confirmation will receive their tickets by Wednesday, 6pm.
