Don’t miss out on attending AnimeNEXT in you’re in the New Jersey area this weekend, because there’s a nice surprise in store for Hatsune Miku and Senbonzakura fans!

The Vocaloid fan circle Mirai no Neiro will be hosting special events on Friday (June 9th) and Saturday (June 10th). These include an autograph session on Friday evening with Ittomaru, the illustrator behind Senbonzakura, and author of the Senbonzakura novel. There will be a discussion panel and a mini-MMD concert on Saturday afternoon, presented by NAO. Toshihiro Fukuoka, executive producer of the Senbonzakura Project, will also be present.

It’s not too often you see a new Hatsune Miku model pop up based on an original design concept, but DigitrevX’s latest project is definitely an awesome one: One of the racing Miku 2016 finalist designs by RSK has been made into a MikuMikuDance model!

For the final 2016 Racing Miku design, Goodsmile Racing decided to incorporate details from all the finalists chosen, including elements from RSK’s submission, into a single design. RSK’s solo design, however, was a popular fan favorite (and one of ours as well!).
