Hatsune Miku will be making an appearance in the bullet train transforming robot anime “Shinkansen Henkei Robo Shinkalion”, not as a cameo, but a complete role with the accompanying visual released today.
The virtual diva will be playing as an 11 years old pilot for the Shinkalion H5 Hayabusa as “Hatsune Miku”. While the name comes as no surprise, it’s written with the Japanese characters for “pronunciation” (発音ミク) instead of “first” and “sound” (初音ミク).
“Shinkansen Henkei Robo Shinkalion” is an upcoming TV anime directed by Takahiro Ikezoe based on the line of transforming train toys, where gifted children piloted transforming bullet trains to combat monster that resembles a jet black bullet train. The series will broadcast on the Tokyo Broadcasting System network on Saturdays at 7:00AM JST starting from January 6th, 2018 .
