There were many amazing artistic creations from Hatsune Miku fans all over the world to celebrate her 10th anniversary. But due to the vastness of the world and content, some things might get overlooked that are definitely worthy of more attention.

One such creation is an animated music video for a Vocaloid Rock styled song titled Plot: 0, which appeared on the Chinese video site Bilibili in September 2017. The MV was a collaboration between 6 artists, and features stunning and smooth animation work that compliments the song beautifully, with many references to well-known Hatsune Miku songs and characters from the past.


However, even in its homeland of China, the music video only gathered 94,000 views before I tweeted about it, with the resulting reaction making it clear that many people never knew this music video existed. The great news is that it does exist, and you can watch it below!

Two of the earliest and most well-known Vocaloid producers, OSTER project and Mitchie M, have paired up to produce a collaboration song like never before for Hatsune Miku 10th anniversary titled “Uta no Sumu Ie ~Maison Hatsune~“. The sweet and cheerful tone will catch you off guard to the beats, while the realistic vocal tuning makes a very great pair to the music.

The collaboration song will be available as part of the Magical Mirai 2017 Blu-ray and DVD Hatsune Miku 10th anniversary edition to be released on January 10th. Check out the music video below, or watch it on Nicovideo.

I admittedly haven’t heard too much of the music produced with the recently released Hatsune Miku Chinese voicebank, but this one is definitely what I’d call a star example of what music producers can do with the software. “The Miracle Of The Star” by Mikai Music both looks and sounds beautifully made, and takes on an uplifting Drum and Bass style. A wonderful ride from start to finish!

The song has been fairly popular on Bilibili, reaching 190,000 views since it was uploaded on November 4th. It was also recently shared to YouTube and Nicovideo for overseas fans to enjoy! Check out the official music video below.

The Vocaloid producer DaniwellP, best known as the original creator of the Nyan Cat song, has been busy with releasing a lot of new content. Among these are new games, songs, albums, and surprisingly, a MikuMikuDance model! DaniwellP is definitely a Hatsune Miku community favorite, so here’s a roundup of his recent works.

If you missed the quick announcement from our social media, DaniwellP created a fun and very addicting webapp called Mikutap, where you can generate random Miku sounds to the rhythm of background music. It’s both uniquely cute and fun! Check out the official trailer above, and the webapp from the official site → https://aidn.jp/mikutap/

Protip: You can add the webapp to your device’s homescreen as an app to quickly launch it from anywhere! Just use Chrome or Safari’s “add to home screen” option.

Daniwell releasing a Hatsune Miku model for MikuMikuDance was definitely an unexpected surprise for sure. Rather than something “life-like” or an attempted mirror of Miku’s normal style, Daniwell went the creative route and went for a more simplistic, block-styled Miku, but with its own unique charm. It even has a neko ear option! Download it from the official site → http://aidn.jp/mmd/box_miku/

Tying in with the MMD model release, Daniwell also created a short music video using the new model, and surprisingly, the Hatsune Miku’s English voicebank. At just 23 seconds in length, it’s perfect to have as your ringtone. In fact, Daniwell also makes it downloadable from his official site, so go nuts! → http://aidn.jp/sound/

Lastly, Daniwell released his 3rd album “UCHU ZENBU” a couple months ago, and it was sadly overlooked by many. But it’s definitely worth a listen and addition to any Hatsune Miku fan’s collection! Check out the official page for all the shop links → https://aidn.jp/daniwell/uz/
