The celebration of Miku’s 10th anniversary is a celebration of many meanings for many of her fans around the world. One of the top focuses in this celebration is, of course, the music! Being a music software herself, music one of the cornerstones that helped make Hatsune Miku what she is today. We’d like to look at the special songs that Vocaloid artists contributed on the week of August 31st, the day of Miku’s 10th anniversary.
This list has a few special rules! First, the song has to have been uploaded to Nicovideo during the period of August 28th~September 3rd. This allows some room for Vocaloid producers that uploaded their songs a little early or late! Second, the song has to mention it was a 10th anniversary celebration song, either in the title, tags or description. Finally, songs will be ranked by average views per day, not total views! This gives a more accurate ranking of the fans favorite songs.
Without further day, here’s the Miku 10th anniversary song ranking! Do you have any favorites that didn’t make the list? Let us know in the comments below!
Crypton Future Media certainly seems excited to celebrate Hatsune Miku’s 10th anniversary later this year, and has just launched a new teaser page on their Peer Professional sharing site, Piapro.
The page doesn’t have much for now, just a timer ticking down until Hatsune Miku’s anniversary on August 31st, along with the phrase “10 years since the release on August 31, 2007… A new beginning for “HATSUNE MIKU” starts here.“. We can probably expect more updates as the anniversary date draws nearer.
Like clockwork, Vocaloid producers often create songs specially for Hatsune Miku’s birthday every year. This year also yielded a number of new songs (and PVs as well), so please enjoy! Also feel free to share your personal favorite birthday songs in the comments below.
