The results of the Hatsune Miku Magical Mirai 2021 song contest on Piapro have been announced! One grand prize winner and five runner-up winners were selected. You can listen to the samples in the YouTube video above, or the full songs from the list below! You can also check out their other works from the provided VocaDB links, if available.
The grand prize winner will have their song featured in the upcoming Magical Mirai 2021 live concert event, while the runner-ups historically had their songs featured in the overhead music played in the concert hall before the start of each concert.
Some big updates regarding Hatsune Miku Magical Mirai 2021 were posted to the official site, which covers the new main visual artwork, theme song, even ticket info and more! Here’s a quick recap of the announcements from June 21st. *Please note that overseas tickets are not being made available due to the ongoing pandemic situation in Japan.*
Main Visual by left
The theme of Magical Mirai 2021 is “Fairy Tale Fantasy“, with the main visual art being designed and drawn by left. Their participation in this year’s event also marks their first collaboration with [email protected] in 10 years. The artwork has a very floral and mythical atmosphere. There’s some concept sketches with costume details for those wanting to draw their own fanart, or even design a cosplay!
Well recognized in the Hatsune Miku fan community, [email protected] is likely a welcome addition by many to the list of Magical Mirai theme song composers. A 15 second teaser CM for the event has been uploaded, featuring a segment of the theme song “Hatsune Creation Myth” playing in the background. We’ll have to wait a while longer for the release of the full song!

Nendoroid Hatsune Miku if
Based on Hatsune Miku’s earlier concept art/prototype design by KEI, before her finalized 2007 software box design. Despite this, the outfit was popularly drawn and admired by fans. This Nendoroid is still in development, and further details such as price and release date are TBA.

Hatsune Miku NT, the latest version release of Hatsune Miku’s software, is having her design transformed into a scale figure and Nendoroid! There’s no further details on the scale figure, such as a prototype or scale size. The figure will be produced by Good Smile Company. The Nendoroid had its unpainted prototype teased, but details about a price and release date for both figures are still TBA.
Hatsune Miku: Love is War Refine Ver. 1/8 Scale Figure
The classic Hatsune Miku: Love is War ver. scale figure is being refined in a new release! The colors and sculpting have been reworked to more faithfully match the original artwork by Miwa Shirou.
