For Hatsune Miku’s 11th anniversary, the Sony Sapporo Store staff uploaded a rather touching video to their official Twitter. It starts with Hatsune Miku wandering the Sapporo streets at night, when the Sony Sapporo store catches her eye. Miku takes a look around inside, and is caught by surprise with a heartwarming birthday greeting from the store staff.

Sony Store Sapporo has had several collaborations with Hatsune Miku in the past with exclusive merchandise, and Sapporo is also Hatsune Miku’s hometown. So it’s nice to see Sony Sapporo remembering Hatsune Miku on her birthday. Watch the video below!

Happy 3939 Day! If you’re wondering what that means, Hatsune Miku fans in Japan have begun celebrating #初音ミク生誕3939日, which marks 3939 days since Hatsune Miku’s release on August 31st, 2007. Whether or not you count August 31st as Day 0 or Day 1, the anniversary date can fall on June 12th or 13th, 2018. So fans are making it a 2 day celebration, and celebrating on both days!

Below are some of the artworks drawn by fans in celebration of this special anniversary! News of this special day wasn’t widely known, even among the fans in Japan, so there aren’t many artworks yet. But you can view more for yourself on twitter with the hashtag #初音ミク生誕3939日! Continue reading »

There were many amazing artistic creations from Hatsune Miku fans all over the world to celebrate her 10th anniversary. But due to the vastness of the world and content, some things might get overlooked that are definitely worthy of more attention.

One such creation is an animated music video for a Vocaloid Rock styled song titled Plot: 0, which appeared on the Chinese video site Bilibili in September 2017. The MV was a collaboration between 6 artists, and features stunning and smooth animation work that compliments the song beautifully, with many references to well-known Hatsune Miku songs and characters from the past.


However, even in its homeland of China, the music video only gathered 94,000 views before I tweeted about it, with the resulting reaction making it clear that many people never knew this music video existed. The great news is that it does exist, and you can watch it below!
