While we’ve already announced the news across our social media, we feel it’s important our website followers also know the good news: The fake MikuHatsuneVEVO YouTube channel we previously reported has been successfully shut down!

Previous report details here → https://www.mikufan.com/help-hatsune-miku-report-the-fake-mikuhatsunevevo-youtube-channel/

Thanks to the flood of reports from fans, YouTube was finally forced into investigating Crypton Future Media’s trademark claim against the channel and finally approved the takedown. The removal was first confirmed on June 22nd, 2018.

Lastly, there’s more good news! The official Hatsune Miku YouTube channel is now verified, so this sticky mess is not likely to happen again from here on out.

Thank you everyone for your help in reporting!

During the recent Star of Asia music festival in Almaty, Kazakhstan, well-known Vocaloid producer PinocchioP and Hatsune Miku made a live performance appearance together! The duo made their appearance towards the end of Day 2 (June 17th) of the music festival, and performed 3 songs:

Ghosts Play to the Audience
Nobody Makes Sense

Hatsune Miku’s appearance at this event was accomplished via a small-scale glass panel projection, using an edited version of the Tsumi-type Hatsune Miku MikuMikuDance model, co-edited by Crypton Future Media for the event. Hatsune Miku also MC’d a little bit of Russian speech, which is certainly exciting! The whole event was streamed live online, and to various global media networks.

The Xiaomi x Hatsune Miku campaign, of which we shared the details of yesterday, has finally reached its next goal of 1,000,000 support points, and unlocked the new campaign theme artwork (sample above)! The illustration is drawn by Mame no Moto, an illustrator also well known for drawing the official Hatsune Miku V4 Chinese artwork, and drawing the main visual artwork for Snow Miku 2016.

Also announced is the public release of the previously exclusive Hatsune Miku phone theme for the limited edition Xiaomi Redmi Note 4X. The theme is now available for all Xiaomi devices from Xiaomi’s theme shop in China for all compatible Xiaomi devices running MIUI.

The final phase of the campaign is set to automatically unlock on June 28th, but fans can unlock it early by helping the campaign reach 2,000,000 support points. As we speculated before, we strongly believe this campaign is leading up to the announcement of another Hatsune Miku edition smartphone release. Check out the campaign details in our previous article! → https://www.mikufan.com/?p=23306
