The official Snow Miku 2018 main visual is finally here, and now live on the official site! 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.

In addition to the main visual reveal, the official site update also brought us an announcement for the live performance “SNOW MIKU LIVE! 2018”.  The live performance, which will be held on February 9th~10th, will have daytime and night performances for each days at Zepp Sapporo. Ticket details will follow at later date.

It’s been almost 3 years since the last SNOW MIKU LIVE! in 2015, and that last time Snow Miku herself even showed up to perform. Perhaps something similar will also happen this time?

Daytime performance open 13:00, start 14:00
Night performance open 18:00, start 19:00

The Snow Miku festival 2018 will be held on February 5th~12th, 2018 in Sapporo, Hokkaido. Are you ready for Snow Miku 2018? Stay tuned for more details, or checkout our visit to the last year’s event in the meanwhile!

We’ve seen Hatsune Miku PC case mods before, but these mods making Miku appear inside your computer case take it to a whole new level.

Using a transparent LCD panel in place of of the normal side panel, the modification makes it appear as if Miku is dancing inside the case itself. This particular creation comes from @nissyan_daze on Twitter, who used an InWin 707 case for the mod. It’s on display at “PC BUILDERS 2” in Osaka, a fan-created event/gathering.

Check out extra images and video below!


The first versions of this mod were originally made back in July 2017, and appeared at OlioSpec in Tokyo. Below is a video of the earlier revision.

In what has to be the longest Hatsune Miku art exhibition ever showcased, the display in Otemachi, Tokyo definitely looks stunning at 23 meters in length.

The exhibition comes as a collaboration between Crypton Future Media and the Yomiuri Shimbun newspaper, the very same paper that featured a 2 page advertisement celebrating Miku’s 10th anniversary. Over the 10 years, there has been a lot of memories, and a lot of artwork! No wall could ever hope to fit them all, but this display is an impressive feat. Topping it all off, the popular life-sized Miku statue designed by iXima is also displayed at the exhibition.


The exhibition started today (October 13th), and will be open daily between the hours of 10:00 AM and 6:00 PM until the 5th of November (will be closed October 22nd for Holiday). The location of the exhibition is the Yomiuri Newspaper Building 3F, Otemachi, Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo. A limited number of gifts are available for free to visitors while the supplies last!

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.

The new date for ticket sales is not known yet, but we’re expecting it to arrive soon.
