The 1/7th Scale Hatsune Miku 10th Anniversary Ver!

Can you believe that blue haired vocaloid, Hatsune Miku, has been around for 10 years? Me neither but her impact has been considerable across pop culture, cosplay and the music scene. To mark the occasion, Good Smile Company are going to be releasing a special Hatsune Miku figure which has been designed by manga artist Mari Shimazaki and expertly crafted by sculptor Takayuki Kawahara. This figure is absolutely eye wateringly beautiful, just have a look at the pics below.

This is one good looking figure especially with the translucent parts added to the outfit with minute little sparkles thrown in to really make her stand out and sparkle. There’s also a special 10th anniversary official site loaded with more pics and info. There’s also a section on the anniversary Nendoroid as well! Pre-orders are open right now but you’re in for a hefty wait as the figure doesn’t release until December 2018 but this is one figure to add to your collection. PS. My pre-order is in!

Fifth Anniversary Website For Magical Mirai

It’s nearly time for birthday shenanigans of that cutest of vocaloids, Hatsune Miku and Japan is gearing up to celebrate in style. Here’s a really quick teaser clip, from the website, of some of the events in store to mark the 5th anniversary of the Magical Mirai celebrations:

Looks like there’ll be an expo, concert and heaps more fun in store for everyone to help Miku celebrate her birthday. Hatsune Miku: Magical Mirai 2017 will be going down at Makuhari Messe from September 1 through to September 3 this year.

Celebrate Ten Years Of Hatsune Miku

Hard to believe but that blue haired vocaloid, Hatsune Miku, has been around for ten years already. I know, where has the time gone? To commemorate the occasion, Exit Tunes will be releasing a limited edition four disc album called “Vocalohistory feat. Hatsune Miku”.

The CD will come absolutely jam packed with 60 tracks ranging from halyosy, Mitchie M 40mP plus loads more.

There will only 3939 copies made of this CD and you may be wondering why the odd number of 3939? The number can also be pronounced as Miku Miku! The CD will also have art cards inside the packaging, an art book featuring artwork from RAHWIA, Komine, CHRIS plus more as well as 15 badges will be included too.

The album releases on March 15 2017 and pre-orders are now open from various online stores like Amazon Japan and Animate. The album will retail for ¥8000 so with shipping, you’re looking at close to $100 if not a little bit more.

More Pics From Tokyo Game Show Day 1

Tokyo Game Show is in full swing at Makuhari Messe in Chiba, Japan and while I can’t be there in person this year, I’m lucky enough to have friends that have made the trip over to Japan. Yesterday we saw some pics from DYoshiiTV who’s over there doing some amazing work with Tokyo Otaku Mode and today I managed to snag some more pics from day one.

These pics come courtesy of Matt Sainsbury who runs Digitally Downloaded Dot Net and is over there doing some awesome stuff as well! If you haven’t checked out his stuff yet, you should as it’s amazing! Plus, he’s a massive fan of Hatsune Miku, just like me! And he’s also doing some col coverage of TGS on his site as well so make you stop by.

Hatsune Miku has a new credit card in Japan

My favourite blue haired vocaloid, Hatsune Miku, seems to be making an appearance on everything. From music CD’s, DVD’s, merchandise, figmas, nendoroids and now she’s appearing on a new credit card from Japanese bank, Sumitomo Mitsui. But it’s not enough that she appears on the card looking amazing. No sir, you should see what the incentives and bonuses are for signing up for the new card.
