The full Miku Expo 2016 theme song and music video “Blue Star” has made its debut on YouTube! The music was composed by HachiojiP, with illustration and video work by Mochidzuki Kei and Okiku, respectively. Check out the full music video below!

True to its title, the song features a bright electropop tone with plenty of stars and twinkling effects. “Blue Star” easily takes the title of cutest sounding Miku Expo theme song to date.

Today also marks the end of the MIKU EXPO Let’s Go campaign, which hit 387% of its funding goal (so close to 390%!). The rewards from that campaign will be sent out on March 9th!

You can definitely tell it’s almost Spring, at least where I’m from. The weather has been much warmer than normal for this time of year. But other than that, there’s some good news!

The Sakura Miku Nendoroid orders from 6 months ago have finally shipped out just a few days ago. While you’re waiting for your orders to arrive, you can watch Mikatan from Good Smile Company unbox one of these beautiful figures. The album Re:Dial by kz(livetune) is also set to ship out on the first day of Spring.

Lastly, the producer Ika (composer of the popular song Miku Miku Ni Shite Ageru) has released a new song just for the occasion titled “Cherry Blossom Banquet”, directed and animated by MasatakaP. Below is the video from Ika’s official channel. Subscribe if you enjoy his work!

This Producer of the Week article will focus on BrotherP and his creations. While there are other high profile animation producers like Director Wakamura that excel at the creation of eye popping visuals, BrotherP has an equally impressive talent for creating immersive and emotionally touching stories with his animations.
