Both surprisingly and unsurprisingly, a recent poll from the official Shinkalion website for fan favorite characters from Shinkalion The Animation showed overwhelming support for Hatsune Miku, who topped the poll with the #1 fan vote! Despite being recently introduced, it’s clear that many were looking forward to Miku’s appearance. Even the series main character Hayasugi Hayato didn’t stand a chance in the heated competition, placing 5th in the poll.

Poll Results:

The official site also announced the top 3 characters of the poll will get special wallpapers made, which should be posted on their site soon, so keep an eye for that! News feed →

Following up on our recent article of Hatsune Miku’s debut in episode 15 of “Shinkansen Henkei Robo Shinkalion”, we’re happy to share that official uploads of episodes 15 and 16 are available on YouTube from Takara Tomy’s channel!

The episodes don’t feature any English captions (yet!), but Takara Tomy is allowing submissions of community translations! If anyone out there is confident in their Japanese skills and would like to help translate the episodes, go for it!

EDIT 5/18/018: The official uploads seem to be purged after a period of time, so we are embedding new mirrors of the original source. We also added episode 17, and added English captions to the videos (credits to Weeaboo-Shogun).

Hatsune Miku cameos in anime are not all that uncommon. In fact, we’ve been seeing them since 2008. Never-the-less, each appearance is always a surprise for the unsuspecting Miku fan when picking up a new anime series.

Miku’s most recent anime cameo is in the 4th episode of “Himouto! Umaru-chan“, where she appears as a machine prize figure named “Migu” for comedy purposes. The tweets below by @MayoRiyo highlight some scenes of her appearance in the anime. How many fans out there spotted this cameo?

A rather interesting video has popped up on the interwebs recently, showing an unusual encounter between Hatsune Miku and Ika Musume. It features music from the Ys series, and also contains fight scene references from quite a few video game and anime sources. This cute and very well done CG animation was created by fGiMr on youtube, and was done in a Japanese CGI creation tool called Shade. Those who want to skip straight to the action can simply start at 5:00 in the video. Otherwise, enjoy the show!
