During the recent Star of Asia music festival in Almaty, Kazakhstan, well-known Vocaloid producer PinocchioP and Hatsune Miku made a live performance appearance together! The duo made their appearance towards the end of Day 2 (June 17th) of the music festival, and performed 3 songs:

Ghosts Play to the Audience
YOZURINA
Nobody Makes Sense

Hatsune Miku’s appearance at this event was accomplished via a small-scale glass panel projection, using an edited version of the Tsumi-type Hatsune Miku MikuMikuDance model, co-edited by Crypton Future Media for the event. Hatsune Miku also MC’d a little bit of Russian speech, which is certainly exciting! The whole event was streamed live online, and to various global media networks.

Watch the full performance below, and check out the tweets of photos from the show!

The Xiaomi x Hatsune Miku campaign, of which we shared the details of yesterday, has finally reached its next goal of 1,000,000 support points, and unlocked the new campaign theme artwork (sample above)! The illustration is drawn by Mame no Moto, an illustrator also well known for drawing the official Hatsune Miku V4 Chinese artwork, and drawing the main visual artwork for Snow Miku 2016.

Also announced is the public release of the previously exclusive Hatsune Miku phone theme for the limited edition Xiaomi Redmi Note 4X. The theme is now available for all Xiaomi devices from Xiaomi’s theme shop in China for all compatible Xiaomi devices running MIUI.

The final phase of the campaign is set to automatically unlock on June 28th, but fans can unlock it early by helping the campaign reach 2,000,000 support points. As we speculated before, we strongly believe this campaign is leading up to the announcement of another Hatsune Miku edition smartphone release. Check out the campaign details in our previous article! → http://www.mikufan.com/?p=23306

The Xiaomi company has started a new campaign on Bilibili, asking the Hatsune Miku fan community to show their support for… Something. But with Xiaomi well known for making smartphones, and having already produced a Miku edition smartphone in the past, it looks like they may be making another!

Campaign Page: https://www.bilibili.com/blackboard/activity-mixchuyin.html

The collaboration asks Miku fans to show their support by voting and sharing to reach the support point goals, and unlock new content and announcements. The campaign page has two buttons used to show your support, an orange “vote” button, and a red “share” button. Each person can “vote” 5 times a day, and share once per day on Weibo, QQ, or Baidu for 10x the support points. After supporting the campaign for 3 days in a row, your support points can be multiplied up to 20x.

The most recent goal of 750,000 “support points” unlocked the full version of “Zuimei Yinji” (The Most Beautiful Impression) featuring Hatsune Miku V4 Chinese, written and composed by Mineko and Irish Kappa! The video features a silhouette of artwork drawn by Mame no Moto. You can listen to this song below.

The campaign has just two more goals to be reached. As of the writing of this article, the campaign sits at 936,000 support points.

– 1,000,000 Support Points: New Theme Image Unlocked. (Will be unlocked automatically June 22nd if the campaign fails to reach 1 million by that date)
– 2,000,000 Support Points: Ultimate Secret Unlocked.

There’s also rewards for those that post comments on the campaign page with the hashtag ” #小米X初音未來#”, and their wish for the campaign (limited to residents in China, of course). Posts to the site have a post ID number. Posts with the hashtag that also end with the number “39” will win a 5,000mAh Xiaomi Mi powerbank. Posts ending with “3939” will win a Xiaomi Mi Band. Each winner can only win their prize once.

We’ll keep you updated as the camaign progresses!

Writer’s note: If I had to take a guess at which phone Xiaomi might use for the next Hatsune Miku edition smartphone, we’re suspecting the Xiaomi Mi 6X.
