Happy 3939 Day! If you’re wondering what that means, Hatsune Miku fans in Japan have begun celebrating #初音ミク生誕3939日, which marks 3939 days since Hatsune Miku’s release on August 31st, 2007. Whether or not you count August 31st as Day 0 or Day 1, the anniversary date can fall on June 12th or 13th, 2018. So fans are making it a 2 day celebration, and celebrating on both days!

Below are some of the artworks drawn by fans in celebration of this special anniversary! News of this special day wasn’t widely known, even among the fans in Japan, so there aren’t many artworks yet. But you can view more for yourself on twitter with the hashtag #初音ミク生誕3939日! Continue reading »

A lot of you may notice we have an all-new Hatsune Miku illustration for the header image on the site, and we’re happy to announce the new artwork for MikuFan.com comes from the illustrator Asahi Kuroi! You may remember him as the winner of the art contest for Magical Mirai 2017, and we’ve featured many of his artworks on our social media. We’re really excited and thankful to have such a beautiful splash art for the site!

If you like the artwork as much as we do, you may enjoy Asahi’s other works, so check them out on his Twitter and Pixiv!

The time has finally came! Snow Miku 2019 and her rabbit partner Yukine design submissions are now open! We’re getting a brand new theme for this year, that is, “Princess” in the image of Hokkaido’s Snow. Now is your chance to take on this once-in-a-year opportunity to have your very own designs featured in the next Snow Miku festival! The collaboration opens a little early compare to last year’s. Is it perhaps getting earlier with each year?
