If you wanted to make the trip to Hatsune Miku’s live performance at last night’s event at B.I.G. Carnival in Shanghai, but couldn’t quite make it, the recording is officially available via LETV!

We’d also like to apologize for a misreport by the B.I.G. event staff: Instead of featuring “at least 7 songs in Chinese”, Hatsune Miku performed 7 Japanese songs, and 1 Chinese song. It was the first live use of her V4 Chinese voice bank.

Check out the press release image gallery and the video from the player below, or click this link if the player doesn’t load: http://www.le.com/ptv/vplay/28990354.html

After careful planning and consideration, MikuFan will now become IAFan, your #1 fan source for IA news and resources! Our new header art comes courtesy of Raestu Dwiatmaja, a talented artist from Indonesia. Check out more of his art on his Instagram! → https://www.instagram.com/raestu27/

IA is the first Vocaloid created by 1st Place, and was released on the VOCALOID3 engine in early 2012 as the first vocal of their “-ARIA ON THE PLANETES-” project. Her voice bank samples were created using vocal data from popular singer Lia, from which IA also gets her name. In 2014, she received an additional voice bank release titled IA ROCKS, which gave the voice a feeling of power, and made it better suited towards rock style songs.

Over 15,000 songs have been created with IA’s software to date, she’s starred in her own music game IA/VT Colorful, and she has also performed live in concert at Anime Expo 2015! The recent 「PARTY A GO-GO」 live concert in Japan was the first in her own home country, with its own DVD and Blu-Ray release. Check out the trailer below!

Special thanks to these artists that also offered to help with our new project:

The Hatsune Miku: Magical Mirai 2017 concept art has been released! The key visual this year is designed by iXima, the official illustrator behind Hatsune Miku V3 and V4X boxart. With the release of the spectacular design in details, now is your chance to prepare your cosplay and fanart!

The design from last year’s event received an overwhelming amount of fanart, and we’re looking forward to see more competition this year! View the full resolution image on the official site!

e.d. The notes in the lower right of the art mention the part highlighted in purple are the parts of the shirt that have “some thickness”.
