Hatsune Miku hasn’t been slowing down at all in recent years, and sometimes the amount of news in one month can exceed the amount of news I’d cover in a year when I first started writing for this site! It’s hard to keep up these days, so I’ll try to quickly summarize the major points of news from the first week of this month. I’ll try to follow with another roundup for week 2 shortly!

Snow Miku is expanding her sports support reach beyond just baseball and snowboarding, and is now the first digital ambassador to support Japan’s B.LEAGUE (Japan’s Basketball league)! The B.LEAGUE All-Star Game 2020 will be hosted in Hokkaido on January 18th 2020, and will be supported by Snow Miku. The Japan basketball league chairman Okawa Masaaki says the move supports the planned theme of “future city” for the event, in which a digital character would fit perfectly.

A Hatsune Miku themed LCD computer monitor was created in a collaboration between ViewSonic and TSUKUMO. The 23.8″ 1080p monitor is available for order from TSUKUMO for 28,380 JPY (keep in mind electronics in Japan are more expensive in general). This monitor features a beautiful Hatsune Miku illustration drawn by Fukahire, which is visible on the product box, as well as on the included monitor cover to prevent it from getting dusty when not in use!

New figure announcements by MegaHouse

MegaHouse Corp, the creators of the Desktop Army line of deformed-style (aka, chibi) 80mm tall figures, has announced a collaboration to create an all new figure line called Desktop Singer. Three characters have had figures announced for this new line: Hatsune Miku, Megurine Luka and Kagamine Rin!

The reveal came today at the Mega Hobby Expo 2019 event in Akihabara, Japan. The designs were arranged by BLADE, and design-wise makes us think of a chibi form of the popular Frame Arms Music Girl Hatsune Miku figure.

Further details such as pricing and release dates are expected later, so stay tuned!
