Goodsmile Racing Finishes 2nd after a wild wet race at Sportsland Sugo. The #4 Hatsune Miku AMG qualified in 6th while the #61 Subaru BRZ set the fastest track record in GT300 taking them to pole position during qualifying.

The race started under the Safety Car as the whole track was wet. There was a mix of teams racing with dry slick tyres and wet threaded tyres as teams gambled whether the track would dry up or not. The race went underway on the third lap with teams on the wet tyres overtaking the team on the dry tyres that were struggling for grip on the wet track.

The #4 Miku AMG would catch up to 4th place overtaking the cars with slick tyres. There were overtakes and spins all over the track, as Miku would take on the Evangelion Unit 01 that is the #33 EVA Nissan GT-R. The Miku AMG would overtake the EVA GT-R and would chase the #56 Realize GT-R overtaking it at the chicane just like the EVA some few laps ago.

The #4 Miku AMG would then chase the #55 ARTA NSX GT3 for the lead but right behind them was GT300’s reigning champions the #65 Leon AMG. The battle for 2nd place would last for about 25 or so laps until Leon’s Bridgestone tyres would take advantage over Miku’s Yokohama tyres and would overtake Miku for second place.

Halfway through the race, the safety car would deploy when the #12 Calsonic Impul GT-R beached itself in the gravel. The top 3 GT300 cars (ARTA, Leon and Miku) would stop for their mandatory pit stop before the safety car deployed.

The race would restart on Lap 43 where Miku and Leon would return to their battle from where they left off. The Miku AMG would take back the position back from the Leon AMG from around the outside of the final turn.

The Miku AMG would catch up to the ARTA NSX where they kept on battling for the lead while lapping other GT300 cars and moving out of the way for the GT500 cars, until the latter was able to fend off Miku until they started making a gap as the race reached the closing stages and eventually winning the race with Miku finishing 2nd place just 15 seconds behind the leading car.

Goodsmile Racing has jumped to 3rd place in the championship standing. But in order for the team to win the championship they must win the race and secure pole position in qualifying as well as should ARTA place 11th or below and K-Tunes placing 3rd or below.

The next race which would be the season finale will be at Twin Ring Motegi on the 2nd and 3rd of November. Who will be the new Super GT champions of 2019? Anything can happen.

Until then, Fight GSR!

It’s been less than a week since Hatsune Miku: Project Diva X has launched for the PlayStation Vita in Japan, and many fans in other countries have been asking “When will we get a localized version”? The answer to this question may be “Soon”, if this tweet posted earlier today by SEGA is anything to go by:

The above image is both weirdly random, and too specific and coincidental with timing. SEGA is all-too-familiar with the Cryptonloids and their favorite food items. The Negi (spring onions) stands for Hatsune Miku, the Orange and Bananas are for Kagamine Rin and Len, the Ice Cream is for Kaito, the Sake is for Meiko, and the Tuna is for Megurine Luka.

Think we’re crazy? We’ll find out soon enough!

A number of Hatsune Miku fans spent one (or more) of some of the most exciting nights of their lives watching the Hatsune Miku Expo performances live in Los Angeles and New York, and cannot wait to enjoy the next live  event, should one happen again. But you can at least relive part of that experience again, thanks to a newly uploaded segment from Miku Expo in New York.

This video features Hatsune Miku performing “Glass Wall” by the producer GuitarHeroPianoZero, and contains likely the same high quality footage you can expect to see on the official concert Blu-Ray, releasing this July (don’t forget to order here!). Enjoy the video below from the official Hatsune Miku YouTube channel!
