We recently gathered questions from the Vocaloid community to share with Rella, a well-known and highly popular Hatsune Miku illustrator in the Vocaloid community. Rella moved to Japan recently, which caused a delay, but she finally had the chance to answer our interview request. You asked the questions, here’s what Rella had to say!

MF: MikuFan

MF: “Hello, Rella, and thank you for joining us for an interview! There are many followers from overseas that are excited to connect with you and learn more about you and your work. We gathered some questions from fans around the world, we hope you look forward to it!” Continue reading »

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The first versions of this mod were originally made back in July 2017, and appeared at OlioSpec in Tokyo.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.

During their interviews of overseas tourists in Japan, the Japanese television broadcast “Why did you come to Japan?” has recently bumped into Hatsune Miku fans not just once, but twice on their show! The interviews were clearly around the period of Magical Mirai 2017, which likely brought more overseas visitors than any previous events.

The first interview was broadcasted on October 2nd interviewed two male Miku fans from America. One of them has a 12 monitor studio set up, all with Hatsune Miku wallpapers! The second interview on October 9th was with a female fan named Saya Scarlet from Russia (YouTube channel here), who also leads a major Russian Miku fan community. Check out the images and videos below!

The creativity in Hatsune Miku community surely comes in many forms from Pancake art creations to Hatsune Miku 10th anniversary advertisement project, but for the world’s largest GPS drawing artist “Yassan”, he went further and off the usual scale.

In late September this year, the world’s largest GPS drawing artist “Yassan” created a large-scale GPS drawing of Hatsune Miku across Japan. The gigantic drawing covered a total distance of 1160.99 km (721 miles) and took 54 days in total to near completion, with a few bits of her hair bands left.

On June 9th, 2010, Yassan (real name: Yasushi Takahashi) created the world’s largest GPS drawing spelling out “Marry Me” to propose to his girlfriend. The drawing covered over 7,163.67 km (4,451 miles) across Japan, and caught attention of many around the world. Fortunately, she said ‘yes’. In a few years later he was awarded the Guinness World Record for the largest GPS drawing by an individual.

Some screens are dedicated to various Hatsune Miku illustrations, while others show an adorable ApiMiku MMD animation. There’s also a screen scrolling the names of the campaign’s contributors. Check out the images from the tweet above, and the videos below!

EDIT: The campaign organizers have notified us that the videos displayed are not final, and 3 new video adverts will be on display next week!
