Crypton Future Media has recently announced the “Hatsune Miku: Magical Mirai 2014 in Osaka” concert album for digital release on iTunes via their own record label, KarenT. Priced at $11.99 USD, the album contains the full concert setlist to reproduce the arrangement of the live concert event.
The track “Wonderland and the Sheep’s Song” by Hachi, however, has been excluded from the album for unknown reasons. All copies of the physical album also appear to have completely sold out online (sorry to be the bearer of bad news!).
As a reminder, the Magical Mirai 2014 blu-ray concert sets (regular and limited) are still availble for order, and are scheduled to ship on March 11th, 2015. Details and available sources can be found here: http://www.mikufan.com/?p=9655
Below is official concert footage of Magical Mirai 2014 in Osaka from the official Hatsune Miku YouTube channel (blu-ray footage should be much better).
The Snow Miku festivities at the Sapporo Winter Festival have come to an end, so we will soon be returning to regular Hatsune Miku news. If you still wish to see more photos of the events, Tokiko from Tokiko’s Diary Sapporo is still recapping her visit with daily posts, and is currently publishing photos from Day 3 of the Winter Festival.
The previously announced Snow Miku 2015 Nendoroid and Figma are still currently on sale, and orders will remain open until February 16th at 9:00 PM JST. The Nendoroid and Figma are priced at 4500 Yen ($38) each, and free shipping is included on orders over 10,000 Yen (we see what you did there, GSC… Sneaky). They are both available from Good Smile Company’s online shop, with orders expected to ship in July 2015.
Below is a tweet of the Snow Miku snow sculpture being demolished, signaling Snow Miku’s leave for 2015. However, we can look forward to seeing her return again next year with a new reincarnation. Thank you for everything!
Finished recently was the Snow Miku live performance in the Sapporo Snow Festival! The concert took place in the 6th Snow Miku Festival on February 7th~8th, containing 27 songs in total, 1 of which was sang in English.
The first encore featured a surprise appearance of Snow Miku: Snow Bell Ver., while the second features Snow Miku 2010 as she performed with Yamaha’s DX7 keyboard(no photo available).
The first Snow Miku appearance in a concert takes us back to year 2012, where a mini-secret concert was held outdoor during the Snow Miku Festival(Photo). Below is the complete setlist for the Snow Miku Live! 2015.
Two exciting artwork reveals came today for Hatsune Miku fans, with one coming far sooner than expected (details in a bit). The first of the two is the promotional artwork reveal for Snow Miku Live! 2015, the concert event scheduled to take place in Sapporo this February during the yearly Snow Miku festival.
The illustration was drawn by iXima, who is well known for being the official illustrator for Hatsune Miku V3. You can see many of Hatsune Miku’s V3 designs blended with what appears to be the classic Snow Miku 2010 look, with an added ahoge (hair spike) for extra cuteness.
Below is the official announcement tweet, and you can view the full illustration from the official Snow Miku site here.
The last reveal comes from Good Smile Racing, who gave us a teaser of the new Racing Miku 2015 design, an entire 2 months earlier than usual compared to previous years. The announcement first came from GSR’s press announcement earlier today, although a high quality image was later tweeted on GSR’s twitter (pictured below).
Only the backside of the design is visible for now, but a full reveal is promised to come sometime soon. The artist of the illustration is currently unrevealed, and has a lot of people guessing. Any ideas?
Three different Magical Mirai 2014 blu-ray sets have been revealed today, with two different limited editions and a single regular edition. All sets will be included with full HD quality of the concert footage in Osaka, but limited edition will offer special bonuses. Both concerts in Osaka and Tokyo share the same setlist. You can check the setlist here.
All limited editions will include visual case illustrated by MONQ, official booklet, making footage, music clip collection (live original ver.), CM sport collection, and a mini 1/12 scale figure of Hatsune Miku Magical Mirai 2014 ver. as illustrated by artist MONQ(image below). An exclusive limited edition on Amazon Japan will offer a B2 fabric poster as an additional bonus. Lastly, the regular edition will also come with the official booklet. All sets are scheduled to release on March 11th next year.
