Due to the incredible feedback from last year’s Magical Mirai, it has been announced that the “Creators Market” section of the exhibition will be making its return, and bigger than ever!

Last year’s Creators Market area of the exhibition allowed fans to buy music directly from creators featured on Crypton’s KarenT music label. This gave the fans a chance to meet producers such as ATOLS, Yunosuke, Misumi, risou and more in person!


 
Magical Mirai’s announcement says they plan to expand the Creators Market area to introduce even more producers. Mitchie M seemed a little excited and also shared the news, so perhaps we can expect him to make an appearance at the event?

The result of the Hatsune Miku: Magical Mirai 2017 music contest is in! The winner is Keisei, with his song titled “Singularity“, congratulations! The announcement comes from a live panel yesterday at Niconico Chokaigi.

Keisei’s music description comment:

Thank you not just for 10 years, but also 20, 100, and I believe far into the distant future.

I surely trust technologies make us happier.
♪♫ ◟¶(⁄•˅̥•∖)⁋ ♪♬

Congratulations to Hatsune Miku for celebrating 10 years!

Keisei’s song will be featured in the live concert this summer at Magical Mirai 2017, which is pretty honorable! You can listen to the song from the piapro player below, or from the piapro link: http://piapro.jp/t/Hxk-

Talk about surprises! I had no idea that Good Smile Racing would be selecting one of my longer standing favorite Vocaloid producers for their 2017 theme song. But AVTechNO! is certainly welcome in my book!

one feat. Hatsune Miku by AVTechNO! is a drum and bass styled song featuring Miku singing in both Japanese and English, a trend GSR started with their theme songs starting in 2014. The artwork of course is the official Racing Miku 2017 illustration by Tony Taka. Check out the theme song below!

The Hatsune Miku: Magical Mirai 2017 concept art has been released! The key visual this year is designed by iXima, the official illustrator behind Hatsune Miku V3 and V4X boxart. With the release of the spectacular design in details, now is your chance to prepare your cosplay and fanart!

The design from last year’s event received an overwhelming amount of fanart, and we’re looking forward to see more competition this year! View the full resolution image on the official site!

e.d. The notes in the lower right of the art mention the part highlighted in purple are the parts of the shirt that have “some thickness”.
