Two of the earliest and most well-known Vocaloid producers, OSTER project and Mitchie M, have paired up to produce a collaboration song like never before for Hatsune Miku 10th anniversary titled “Uta no Sumu Ie ~Maison Hatsune~“. The sweet and cheerful tone will catch you off guard to the beats, while the realistic vocal tuning makes a very great pair to the music.

The collaboration song will be available as part of the Magical Mirai 2017 Blu-ray and DVD Hatsune Miku 10th anniversary edition to be released on January 10th. Check out the music video below, or watch it on Nicovideo.
