MikuMikuDance now available in English!

Filed under: Hatsune Miku,Miku News — Written by admin on Saturday, March 15th, 2008 @ 1:01 pm

It recently came to my attention that MikuMikuDance, the program used to make most 3D Hatsune Miku PVs is now also available with a completely translated English interface.

English language subtitled instruction videos are also available.

Head over to the download page here.

Via  ミクミク

EDIT 11/16/2012: The original developer of MMD ceased support for the software in 2011. The program still works and is widely used by many fans. However, a new alternative is available by the name of MikuMikuMoving. More info here: [Link]

EDIT 6/3/2013: MikuMikuDance was updated by its creator to version 7.39m. More info here: [Link]

    Save what, Kuni? And Grunttehwoot, Kagamine Rin is in RinRinDance, or ya could just download the latest version of MikuMikuDance… I believe it’s ver 3.22? But it’s all in Japanese, so you would have a hard time reading it XD

  • Comment by しょへえ | January 16, 2009 @ 8:12 am

    Does this work for MAC OS? I don’t think it does because if I try to open the .exe file it says cannot run if not on dos and just gives all the letters and numbers and coding . .. TAT

    I’ll just try on my sister’s computer, she has a PC :c

  • Comment by Konocha | February 7, 2009 @ 7:26 pm

    never mind i got it! thankies!!

  • Comment by Irrashai | February 8, 2009 @ 2:20 pm

    Remember that you have to extract it before you use it. And if you want a Mikumikudance with more features, including seven people, go to http://www.geocities.jp/higuchuu4/ , and go to where it says multi-model. Unfortunately, its in Japanese. To help, learn everything about the English one and learn the buttons and memorize whats on it to see whats on the Japanese one.

    Hope this helps!

  • Comment by NoodlesTran | March 1, 2009 @ 7:41 pm

    Okay, for people who say that it closes fast because of a problem, it’s either because you didn’t extract the application, or it just broken. Just when it gives you the choices EXTRACT or RUN, Press extract. You don’t have to extract all the time. If you have Windows Vista, go to the start button, type in mikumikudance, then after the results come, press the application with the picture of an OPEN folder, not zipped up, and there you go!^^

    My problem:The animation thingy. I looked at the tutorial, did what it said, but it didn’t work the same as the video did. Miku’s hand just went up, then down, like 2 pictures with 1 hand up, then down. The video showed Miku’s hand actually move. I don’t get it! HELP!

    Okay so I downloaded MikuMikuDance yesterday and it was working fine, but now whenever I go to open it it automatically says that it has stopped working and that the program has to close.
    Also, I can’t fins the file that for MikuMikuDance anymore. I can only find the zipper version of it. I have the shortcut on my desktop but it just tells me to close the program when I try to open it.

    If anyone knows why it’s not working, please tell me! I love Miku and I really want to figure out why it’s not working. :(

    No offence guys, but it’s perfectly fine. It works for me, at least. Maby if you check if you downloaded all the correct programs. That might be the problem. If it’s not, you should ask for more help or somthin. But some other people just whine without even trying to figure out what the problem is. Thanks. ^^

  • Comment by Zeimi Senpai~ | June 16, 2009 @ 12:45 pm

    Actually, it might not work with Windows Vista…
    I dont have Windows Vista, and it works fine for me.

    This is just a little help for the people, where when they open it it closes right afterwards.

    The same thing happened to me and I didn’t know why but I was just trying deleting stuff out of my temo=porary files and decided to move the MMD program out of it into my E drive(i have a couple extra drives you can probally use the C) and after opening it it work really well ^-^

    MikuMikuDance works with me, and MikuMikuDance Multi Model Version will download and open, but there are no models and no matter what I do, the model(s) won’t come! The accessories and backrounds will, but the models aren’t even invisable! They have no bones!!! And it didn’t let me delete it except in pieces!!! TT.TT

    im new to this site,but ANA,u need to download the models from other websites (go to deviantart and search ‘MMD models’)

  • Comment by MikuFan!!! | November 1, 2011 @ 10:14 am

    I’m using Windows 7. I extracted all files on all tools for everything into one folder. I opened the application saying ‘MikuMikuDance’ on two folders, the first one named ‘MikuMikuDance_e’ and ‘MikuMikuDanceE_v739dot’ The applications on both folders are fine, and for me, The same…

    Note: I downloaded all there is needed (except the tool in moggproject that is a beta and may have bugs >.<

    I hope I can be of any help =) Cause I have read alot of complaints here before commenting x)))


  • Comment by MikuFan!!! | November 1, 2011 @ 10:22 am

    nekomancer_17 try loading up the model on model manipulation then click load then it will automatically be on the folder where the models are kept and select one =)Note: If you’ve done the same as my first comment (I’m using Windows 7….) IT IS GOING TO WORK…

    I hope I canbe of any help =))

  • Comment by MikuFan!!! | November 1, 2011 @ 10:29 am

    Sophia, the lik up is already the link to the tools AND Software IN ENGLISH….

    Its up to you if you wanna download all or just the software (but you’ll be safer with all… I use Internet Explorer 9 with ethernet and the download’s fast…)

    Hope I can be of any help *^.~*

  • Comment by MikuFan!!! | November 1, 2011 @ 10:33 am

    Chouar, If you downloaded all tools/programs needed you gotta ask help. It you didn’t try downloading the others… maybe you don’t have the right drivers/softwares/god-knows-whats… try downloading it…

    Hope I can be of any help =)

  • Comment by Vira | February 11, 2012 @ 8:56 pm

    Ok, I have been wanting to download MikuMikuDance for a while now but I am iffy about it and I have a couple of questions if anyone can reply to them that would be great! My first question, is it safe? I have a brand new laptop and I don’t want it to break on me.
    Second: Is there anything else I would have to download to be able to use it?
    Third: If I wanted to have Luka as a model how would I go about getting her?
    Fourth: There are four different download links on the english page, do I have to download all four?
    And if not what version would be best?
    Sorry about the long comment but I want to be sure of everything BEFORE I download anything.
    If someone can help me out it would be appreciated.

  • Comment by Huyhn | February 20, 2012 @ 8:28 pm

    1. The program is safe,I personally trust VPVP site, I believe Miku fans are good people
    (BTW you may get a pop-up when trying to run the program but its just like that since you are running a program that was originally Japanese on an English computer)

    2. You may need to download an English Patch but other than that no you can have add-ons

    3. You would have to look for a MMD Model file search the net or buy directly from the creator respectfully (there are multiple type of models)

    4. You do not have to download all 4, I personally downloaded the Miku Multi-model edition but thats because my laptop is older but its up to you and your laptop

  • Comment by Huyhn | February 20, 2012 @ 8:31 pm

    (BTW you may get a pop-up when trying to run the program but its just because its a program by fans for fans)

    To answer emerii: I have no idea if this application even works on MAC or not.

    The download links are right there in the article. And it’s not a game. It’s a model animation engine.

    Are you serious!? Guys, just type in mikumikudance download in google! Then click VPVP!
    After you download it and click on the file, it will ask: Extract All or Run?
    Please click Extract All.
    Wait for it!
    Now! Open the extracted file and have fun with Miku!
    On one condition: ONLY open the extracted file!

    If I’m right, MMD is not a game, but a program used for making animations and stuff like that.
    It’s supposed to be fun and entertain its players.

    You can download MMD at VPDP, something like that… Google it. It’s english. Download DirectX something, the latest version. You can also download more models at DeviantArt.
    It comes with Animasa Miku, Len, Rin, Kaito, Meiko, Neru, and Haku.
    And Kio Meiko Sakine. I suggest downloading Kio models to replace Animasa, they are very pretty and you don’t have to pay anything.
    You can download motion data, poses… Anything is possible. The game can be fun or not depending on how you use it.

    I used to use it, but ever since I realized violence is never the answer, I trashed MMD.(I used my selfie to hurt Luka and Haku)
    That’s all about it. Have fun(or not).

    I can’t get it to work. :c I’ve downloaded it fine and it works but only to a cetain extent! I can’t find any models so then I press ‘show all files’ and the models come up so I click on it and it says the fild isn’t for Pmd or something. I’ve tried serval times to fix it. Does anybody know why it isn’t working?

  • Comment by jrharbort | September 10, 2012 @ 3:25 am

    @nyan: There’s some included models in the UserFile\Model folder. Other than those, you will need to locate and add your own additional models to MMD. This is an animation tool only, and it wont include all the other things such as stages, models, or accessories.

  • Comment by ChessieGirl | September 16, 2012 @ 5:46 pm

    Is there a version of MMD that is in English, but does NOT require WinRAR?

  • Comment by jrharbort | September 16, 2012 @ 6:01 pm

    @ChessieGirl: WinRAR is free, so I don’t see the issue. You can also use 7-zip to unpack it, which is another free application.

  • Comment by ChessieGirl | September 17, 2012 @ 3:04 pm

    But, it says “my trail is up, please uninstall or purchase it after 40 days,” so I feel guilty everytime I download something. I’m so confused.

  • Comment by Kerri | December 1, 2012 @ 10:40 am

    I can’t figure it out!!! I watched the tutorial and I can’t get anything to move!! Plus, Why is there only a Miku Model on it?!?!?! I don’t mean to be a hater to Miku, but she isn’t my fave Vocaloid. In fact, I dont like Miku at all ( No offense to Miku-Fans). Please someone help me figure out how to move the model and get a different Model, PLEASE!!!!

  • Comment by jrharbort | December 1, 2012 @ 5:06 pm

    @Kerri: Watch the tutorial more carefully. Also, try using MikuMikuMoving instead. Also, you get additional models online. Check out the MMD wikia for a small model database. Bowlroll.net has even more.

  • Comment by Leigh | December 15, 2012 @ 8:26 am

  • Comment by jrharbort | December 15, 2012 @ 8:54 am

    @Leigh: You don’t need winzip to extract it, windows is capable of extracting zip files on its own. Winzip is also a horrible program to be honest. I suggest either 7-Zip or WinRAR, both of which are free.
