Like clockwork, Vocaloid producers often create songs specially for Hatsune Miku’s birthday every year. This year also yielded a number of new songs (and PVs as well), so please enjoy! Also feel free to share your personal favorite birthday songs in the comments below.
Just in time for Hatsune Miku’s 8th anniversary, the official music video for HachiojiP’s “Desktop Cinderella feat. Hatsune Miku” has been uploaded to YouTube! The music and lyrics were done by HachiojiP, while the music video was produced by WakamuraP.
The music video also helps promote the release of HachiojiP’s newest album of the same name, “Desktop Cinderella”, which is set to release on September 2nd. The album features 14 original tracks by HachiojiP, and will be launched in physical and digital versions with world-wide availability.
My, it’s been a while since we’ve made a post completely dedicated to music PVs, hasn’t it? In fact, I’d say it’s been… Three years? Time for a quick turnaround, and point out several recent must-hear Hatsune Miku songs from the past few weeks. There’s various styles to suit your fancy, whether you like songs that are cute, cool, or just simply fun to listen to.
“Skip99” by 23.exe. This song mixes Dubstep with Electropop music styles, and sounds quite jumpy and fun. We’re sure this track will make you want to skip right along with the beat. English subs are included!
“Are You Still A Bit Skittish Today?” by LamazeP. A cute sounding song for sure, and was humorously tagged with the “Miku Addict Holy Ground” tag on Nicovideo. An English subbed version is provided by Descent87.
“Gohatto Disco” by Satsuki ga Tenkomori. Composed with a Japan-esque disco style mixed with House, this track definitely sounds cool.
“Story Rider” MikuMikuDance PV by Thanks. Featuring a Miku English song composed by Eleki (aka, BIGHEAD), this PV once again catches Thanks’ magical charm with the LAT-Miku type Hatsune Miku model for MikuMikuDance.
Previously teased as a garage kit at previous Wonder Festival events, then recently announced for a future release, the Mamama ver. Appearance Miku (aka, ApiMiku) figure will finally be available in a week’s time, sometime around mid-June 2015.
Based on the highly cute and popular ApiMiku model for MikuMikuDance, this figure stands at 18cm tall, somewhere around 1/8 scale in size. The figure was picked up for production and distribution by TAITO, and you can expect to see this figure in prize machines at entertainment centers across Japan, likely of the SEGA UFO Prize Catcher variety.
Can’t go to Japan to get one? See if a friend can win one for you, or grab one when winners start reselling them later this month (usually quite inexpensively, too).
It’s not often you see a Hatsune Miku model for MikuMikuDance that is so high quality, you’d think it was official. The 3D modeler Digtrevx from Deviantart has created an MMD model based on Racing Miku 2015 that impressively matches what we’ve seen from official illustrations and figures.
