It’s time to announce the results of our 10th anniversary giveaway contest! We quized 4 difficult questions with the theme of Snow Miku, and we received more entries than our last giveaway. Here’s our contest winners!

-= Snow Miku 2018 Plushie Winner =-
SayakaMiku Lover

-= Hatsune Miku Tapestry by TID =-

Congratulations to the two winners, and thank you to everyone that participated! We’ll review the questions below for those curious of the answers:

LamazeP’s popular song “Love Song” was performed live at Snow Miku Live 2018, but which Miku event in Sapporo did LamazeP himself first appear at? (Please provide event name and year!)
LamazeP first made a public appearance at a Miku event in Sapporo with the “MikuPa 2011 in Sapporo” event!

Which year did Snow Miku first serve as ambassador for the Sapporo Snow Festival?
This one is a bit tricky, as Snow Miku was first adopted as a Sapporo Snow Festival ambassador around mid-2011, but didn’t serve the role until the Snow Festival of 2012.

Which year did Snow Miku first collaborate with the popular amusement center Sugai Dinos in Sapporo?
This was a difficult one, as I recently learned about this during my visit to Snow Miku 2018! Advertisements playing on the street featured Miku announcing that this was her 5th year collaborating with Sugai Dinos, meaning the collaboration started in 2014!

When and where did the popular “Snow Miku Hair Christmas Tree” appear?
There was some flexibility with this answer! The tree appeared in New Chitose Airport on December 6th, 2014, but wasn’t removed until February 2015. So “New Chitose Airport 2014” or “New Chitose Airport 2015” were both valid answers! Kudos to those who got the exact starting date!

Happy 150th anniversary, Hokkaido! It has been 150 years since the northern island region of Japan, Hokkaido, was given its name. The Hokkaido region is also home to the city of Sapporo, which is Hatsune Miku’s home town!

To celebrate the 150th anniversary, the “Hokkaido 150th Year Project” has been launched by various companies, groups, municipalities, etc, to help plan out the further development of Hokkaido for the next 50 years. One of the partner companies is, of course, Crypton Future Media!

While the details on CFM’s involvement is not yet known, they have released two new Snow Miku visual artworks, which “will appear in various scenes in the future”. Snow Miku is Crypton Future Media’s mascot of choice when it comes to partnerships and collaborations in the Hokkaido region.

The first main visual art features an adorable Snow Miku and Rabbit Yukine illustrated by Yuzuki Kihiro! The second sub-visual art is a more simplistic style illustration by Nekosumi! We’re hoping further details of this partnership will be announced at a later date.

Sorry we’re a bit late on this one, still catching up from the Snow Miku 2018 and WonFes madness! If you also somehow missed it, the Snow Miku 2018: Crane Priestess ver. Nendoroid and Figma are now available for preorder until just February 27th at 12:00 PM JST!
“Snow Miku performing dance and prayer dressed as a priestess!
2018 marks the 9th anniversary of Snow Miku, and the 2018 design was once again selected by fans through online votes between a selection of outfits all submitted to piapro by fans! This year the theme was “Animals of Winter Hokkaido”, and the winning Snow Miku design was this version based on a red-crowned crane illustrated by Taichadon! The illustration has now been converted into this adorable Nendoroid!

The hood can be attached and removed for a different look, and she comes with three different face plates including a standard expression, a wistful smiling face as well as a prayer face with closed eyes and a touch of lipstick. Optional parts include a kagura bell and folding fan to pose her performing traditional dances! A cypress stand to place the tools on as well as kneeling parts are also included to display her in prayer, and a crane made from ice is also included for her to hold in her hands.

In addition, a large base featuring a paved road and torii archway is also included to bring out the temple atmosphere, and she comes with a broom to display her cleaning the temple grounds! The snow on the base can even be removed for even more display opportunities! Enjoy the relaxed Snow Miku priestess in all sorts of adorable Nendoroid poses!

The Nendoroid and Figma are priced at 6,000 Yen ($57) each, and are scheduled to ship in July 2018. Don’t miss your chance to add this beautiful Snow Miku duo to your collection!
