A new Hatsune Miku model has been released for MikuMikuDance, created by Muubu! This extra-cute model has been developed by Muubu for over a year, and is now being released for download as a trial (unfinished) version for the first time.

Muubu notes that there’s several known issues with the model, which will be addressed in future updates. The model is available for download from Piapro, and follows the Piapro usage license. We can’t wait to see what animations will come out featuring this adorable model!
