Happy August 31st, everyone! As a surprise for Hatsune Miku’s 13th anniversary, the main visual art for Hatsune Miku Magical Mirai 2020 in Tokyo has been released! Also designed by Fuzi Choco, the design keeps a colorful festive theme, but Miku takes on a fluffier and cuter looking outfit for the Winter Festival.

The winner of the Snow Miku 2021 costume design contest has been announced! Although the announcement was supposed to be made during Magical Mirai 2020 in Osaka, that event was delayed due to COVID-19 related concerns. However, they didn’t want that to hold back the big reveal. The winner of next year’s Snow Miku costume design was Entry #6, illustrated by Anzu Natsumikan!

Matching with the theme of “Illumination”, the outfit features holiday light accents, and a clock-tower design on her cap! Natsumikan was quite ecstatic about the win, saying their dream of designing a Snow Miku had finally come true.

If everything goes according to plan, we should see more news about the upcoming Snow Miku 2021 event this October or November, including Nendoroid and Figma figure info. We’ll see you then!

After various event cancellations postponements around the world during 2020, Hatsune Miku Magical Mirai 2020 in Osaka is the next to face the heat to prevent further spread of COVID-19. Originally, ticket purchases to foreign visitors was blocked due to the virus concerns, but the current situation within Japan has forced further action by the event organizers.

An update to the official website announces that the event originally planned for August 7th~9th 2020 has now been postponed to an unknown future date. Those planning to attend are asked to please wait for future announcements regarding the new event and concert dates. Already purchased tickets will be able to carry over to the new date, and refunds are also being prepared for those no longer able or willing to attend the new event dates.

There is no word yet on postponement of the Tokyo event, which is still currently scheduled for December 18th~20th. Ticket information for this event has also not yet been announced.

More About Magical Mirai 2020 in Osaka
Magical Mirai 2020’s theme is “MATSURI”, with Osaka having a Summer theme, and Tokyo having a Winter theme. The gorgeous and festive main visual art for Osaka’s event was illustrated by Fuzichoco, which also has a subtle hint at December’s event in the reflection at Miku’s feet.

The event was scheduled to take place from August 7th~9th at the Osaka Intex for the exhibition, and August 8th~9th for the live concert performances.

The theme song titled “愛されなくても君がいる” was composed by PinocchioP, and was previously teased in a 16 second announcement CM. The full song release might also be held off until a more solid timeline for the event has been reached.

As was previously hinted, there is now official confirmation that the Hatsune Miku Expo 2020 USA & Canada tour for this Spring is being postponed to a later, currently undecided time. Many other large gatherings and events have been suspended or delayed due to Coronavirus concerns, so this delay was inevitable until we see some sort of improvement in the situation globally. The health and safety of everyone is a priority!

Further postponement and ticket details for those that have purchased concert tickets are also due to be announced later via the official Miku Expo Twitter, or the official site. We hope for options to either transfer or refund tickets to be available, but we’ll have to wait to find out.
