According to a recent TOKYO MX television broadcast, several key details of the Hatsune Miku: Magical Mirai 2018 events have been detailed. Here’s what was announced in the broadcast:

1. Osaka and Tokyo will have different setlists. Possibly a 7~8 song difference between the two venues.
2. The theme song “Greenlights Serenade” will hold some kind of special significance during the concert. (Possible surprises)
3. A lot of high-energy changes to the music setlist. (A very tiring setlist!)
4. No details yet of a Kansai region collaboration (where Osaka is located), will be announced in the future, hopefully.
5: Life-sized Magical Mirai 2018 version Miku statue production in progress.

FREEing has displayed a fully pained version of their Hatsune Miku: My Dear Bunny ver. 1/4 scale figure at the CCG Expo in Shanghai, China earlier today. This is our first glimpse of the figure’s painted prototype, and gives us a good look from all angles. We love the attention to outfit detail with real fabric used for the fishnet pantyhose!

The figure is based on Hassan’s winning design from SEGA’s module design contest for Project Diva Arcade: Future Tone, which was released as a playable outfit in the game in 2017. According to the display, they are planning to open the figure for orders in January 2019 for 26,667 JPY ($242 USD).

Hopefully more details will emerge as the release date draws closer! Take a look at the images below.

SEGA has announced three new additions to their keychain series of Hatsune Miku plushies, which they suitably call the “Nesoberu” (Laying down) series. Three adorable Hatsune Miku plushies, each with unique expressions and just 12cm tall, will be released to arcades and prize machines across Japan in the 1st week of August 2018.

This means the release will be just in time for Magical Mirai 2018. So if you’re planning to visit for the event, or happen to live there, be sure to stop by the local arcades for your shot at winning one! If you can’t make it to Japan, these plushies usually also become available through online retailers and resellers.
