Merry Christmas, everyone! Or as Miku fans would say, Merry Mikuristmas! For today’s festive day, we would like to announce the results of our Hatsune Miku: Magical Mirai 2017 plushie giveaway!
The winner of our giveaway is khaz from Washington, United States, who was the first to answer both questions correctly on our giveaway quiz! Congratulations! We reached out to khaz, who had this to say:
“Hatsune Miku is my spirit animal! Thank you Mikufan for helping me keep up with her.”
Question #1: What was Hatsune Miku’s BIGGEST concert appearance?
Answer: Natsu no Owari no 39 Matsuri
We chose our wording very carefully for this question! We weren’t talking about Hatsune Miku’s biggest concert performance, or even her biggest event. But rather, her BIGGEST concert appearance. And her appearance was certainly the biggest at Natsu no Owari no 39 Matsuri in 2012, where stood an amazing 10 meters (33 feet) tall! Below is a digest video of the event.
Question #2: Who is the “father” of Hatsune Miku?
Answer: Wataru Sasaki
Yet another very carefully worded question! When we talk about the father of a software, you of course refer to its creator. Many were quick to choose Hiroyuki Itoh for this question, since he’s the CEO of Crypton Future Media. But he wasn’t the creator of Miku’s software! That honor goes to Wataru Sasaki, aka CFM_Wat, or @vocaloid_cv_cfm on twitter, whom many of you may already follow! He was the head engineer behind Crypton Future Media’s Character Vocal series of products, which includes Hatsune Miku, Kagamine Rin & Len, and Megurine Luka.
Thank you to everyone who participated in our giveaway! We here at MikuFan wish all of you a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! Below is a collection of Hatsune Miku Christmas illustrations we gathered from Pixiv, enjoy!
