If you’re one of the lucky owners of your very own Gatebox Miku, you might have been surprised to see your own Miku transform into Sakura Miku on April 2nd, in celebration of the Spring season!

Many excited owners took to twitter to share their photos and videos of Gatebox Miku’s transformation, a couple of which we’ve shared below. It’s currently unknown how long she will remain like this. But like sakura tree blossoms, enjoy your Sakura Miku while she lasts, she might not be around for long!

This year was the year of Hatsune Miku’s 4th Magical Mirai event, but it was the first time I attended one in person. Yep, despite the “event of all Miku events” taking place every year since 2013, I had never been to one before. After kicking myself over it for the past 3 years, I finally had the opportunity to go to Magical Mirai 2016, and I couldn’t be happier.

Hatsune Miku: Magical Mirai can be considered the true “Miku Expo”, and features an exhibition and concert events over the course of several days. It embodies and showcases the Hatsune Miku culture in ways that can’t really be experienced anywhere else. It truly is the event for Hatsune Miku fans to see.

I took some photos during my visit, and hope you enjoy them! Photos, however, just can’t give the same feeling of actually being there. If you’ve even considered it, I say go for it! Next year is also Hatsune Miku’s 10th anniversary, so we can only imagine what they will have in store.
