The Vocaloid producer DaniwellP, best known as the original creator of the Nyan Cat song, has been busy with releasing a lot of new content. Among these are new games, songs, albums, and surprisingly, a MikuMikuDance model! DaniwellP is definitely a Hatsune Miku community favorite, so here’s a roundup of his recent works.

If you missed the quick announcement from our social media, DaniwellP created a fun and very addicting webapp called Mikutap, where you can generate random Miku sounds to the rhythm of background music. It’s both uniquely cute and fun! Check out the official trailer above, and the webapp from the official site → https://aidn.jp/mikutap/

Protip: You can add the webapp to your device’s homescreen as an app to quickly launch it from anywhere! Just use Chrome or Safari’s “add to home screen” option.

Daniwell releasing a Hatsune Miku model for MikuMikuDance was definitely an unexpected surprise for sure. Rather than something “life-like” or an attempted mirror of Miku’s normal style, Daniwell went the creative route and went for a more simplistic, block-styled Miku, but with its own unique charm. It even has a neko ear option! Download it from the official site → http://aidn.jp/mmd/box_miku/






MIKUUUUUUUUUU!

MIKUUUUUUUUUU!



Tying in with the MMD model release, Daniwell also created a short music video using the new model, and surprisingly, the Hatsune Miku’s English voicebank. At just 23 seconds in length, it’s perfect to have as your ringtone. In fact, Daniwell also makes it downloadable from his official site, so go nuts! → http://aidn.jp/sound/

Lastly, Daniwell released his 3rd album “UCHU ZENBU” a couple months ago, and it was sadly overlooked by many. But it’s definitely worth a listen and addition to any Hatsune Miku fan’s collection! Check out the official page for all the shop links → https://aidn.jp/daniwell/uz/

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!

It looks like Hatsune Miku’s V4 Chinese Vocaloid software release date (?) has possibly been decided, as a special countdown page has opened up at http://www.poppro.cn/, linked from the main SCLA teaser page. Poppro.cn is suspected to become China’s own version of Piapro.jp, which is Crypton Future Media’s peer professional collaboration site for Vocaloid content creators.

The countdown shows 20 days remaining in China time, which translates to the timer ending on Hatsune Miku’s birthday on August 31st. The timer runs off your system time, so it’ll show different timers for different countries, be careful! Whether or not the countdown is for the launch of Hatsune Miku V4 Chinese, Poppro.cn, or both, is still a mystery. Stay tuned!

Easter Egg: Try swiping left or right while visiting the countdown website on mobile!
