Vocaloid Hatsune Miku is getting an original animated series.
Miku is not in any anime, nor any of the VOCALOIDs. If you are referring to the iconic girl with the long black pigtails in Black Rock Shooter, that's not Miku. Pretty much... Miku is a vocal synthiser, a vocaloid library database plug-in (we shorten it to "voicebank") for the softwater "Vocaloid".
Sasaki WataruKnown as the creator of the Vocaloid Hatsune Miku, Sasaki Wataru is a software developer at Crypton Future Media, Inc. Hatsune Miku is actually software developed to make a computer sing songs, and Sasaki tells us the ideas that were behind the software he created.
Except the singer in question is not a person. Her name is Hatsune Miku. She is a piece of software. Tonight, in the final show of her American tour, she is appearing in the form of a hologram at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City.
Hatsune Miku was the singer of choice in Netflix Japan's latest Summer Anime Lineup promotional video. Check it out below!
The large number of people searching “Hatsune Miku” or “初音ミク” caused Google and Yahoo's servers to automatically block her name due to suspected spam or search abuse. Even a popular wiki page about her suddenly vanished due to suspected copyright violation.
Great for kids, positive messages This game includes a lot of kid-friendly Miku hits in various genres made by people of all sorts of backgrounds. The Hatsune Miku concerts all feature songs made by fans, and there are even unofficial fanmade concerts.
Hatsune Miku was developed by Crypton Future Media to assist musicians in adding vocals to their tracks. But her unexpected popularity among the general public has led to Miku branching out into more than just song synthesizing, becoming one of the most famous Japanese pop stars of all time.
Hatsune Miku is a Japanese music sensation, a 16 year-old blue-haired girl with a unique voice and prodigious energy.
Everyone cheered. Her body is currently buried under a ramen shop in Japan.

Designed to be a cute, high pitched and young female Japanese singer, the vocal is of a non-professional vocalist and represents a voice-acted result. It has strong attack and is known for its fairly high adaptability and morphing ability. Due to its high usages among Japanese producers, the vocal was regarded as both "The VOCALOID" voicebank, as well as the "standard" vocal among VOCALOID usage, the vocal itself was meant to replace KAITO and MEIKO from VOCALOID. Miku was created to have standout vocal traits compared to MEIKO. This was also the first vocal for VOCALOID2 that was designed for VOCALOID2 itself.
When KEI illustrated Miku, he was given a color scheme to work with (based on the YAMAHA synthesizers' signature blue-green colour) and was asked to draw Miku as an android. Crypton also provided KEI with Miku's detailed concepts, however, Crypton said it was not easy to explain what a "Vocaloid" was to him. KEI said he could not create an image of a "singing computer" at first, as he did not even know what a "synthesizer" was. It took him more than a month to complete the commission.
The name was chosen by combining hatsu ( 初, "first"), ne ( 音, "sound"), and Miku ( 未来, a personal name that shares its spelling with the word for "future"). It thus means "the first sound from the future." Her name was based on her concept of that when a sound is first spoken.
Miku's initial marketing was similar to past software synthesizers and VOCALOID voicebanks, and was standard marketing for the software at her time of release. For the most part a large proportion was centered on DTM MAGAZINE, like MEIKO and KAITO before her since the readership of the magazine had greatly influenced those two past VOCALOIDs. The only pre-planned promotion was with DTM MAGAZINES November 2007 issue - due to the inclusion of a CD with the demo of Miku on it, this particular issue sold out. When Hatsune Miku was on pre-order it was noted MEIKO and KAITO had no prospect of receiving updates and that Miku would be taking over their roles going forward.
Miku's inclusion felt out of place and included for the sake of inclusion because VOCALOID was mentioned. Criticisms towards Miku have been known to be met with harsh fan reactions, especially in Japan. GazettE's Aoi stirred up a debate in 2010 about the legitimacy of Hatsune Miku and Vocaloid music in general.
Her voice is based on Japanese voice actress Saki Fujita. Anime fans might recognize her work from A Little Snow Fairy Sugar, Kantai Collection, and Kirakira PreCure a la Mode . Fujita would also end up voicing Miku in the game Project DIVA extend.
Miku became the subject of an internet meme known as "Miku created ...". In the memes, fans of a popular work falsely attribute Miku as the creator, with everything from the Minecraft video game and the Harry Potter book series.
The connection likely comes from her association with the "Ievan polkka" song. A 2006 meme played the song with a looping image of an anime character, Orihime Inoue from Bleach, twirling a leek. The song itself would be given the nickname of "Leekspin Song." While the original meme used an acapella version of the song performed by the Finnish quarter, Loituma, Miku would later become known for her cover of the song.
In addition to her work as a festival mascot, fans have also come up with a few holidays in her honor. The first is "Miku Day," which is held on March 9, or 3/9, as the number "39" is considered her symbol, as it can be read as "thank you" in Japanese.
Miku is expected to continue through Crypton's proprietary Piapro Studio software, with her new voicebank coming out in 2020.
Fans generally treat her official hair color as cyan , a shade between blue and green.
Miku has even appeared in a Vocaloid opera at the Theatre du Chatelet Opera House in Paris called The End, which featured no human singers, a project involving designer Louis Vuitton and director Toshiki Okada
Hatsune Miku is a carefree and cheerful-hearted 15-year-old girl who is very good in sining. Altough, she is heroically poupular, she attends a lot of good things with her good friends like KAITO and other Vocaloids, who have been friendly to her.
Hatsune Miku (Japanese: 初音ミク), sometimes called Miku Hatsune, is a Vocaloid software voicebank developed by Crypton Future Media and its official moe anthropomorph, a 15-year-old teenage girl with long, turquoise twintails. She uses Yamaha Corporation's Vocaloid 2, Vocaloid 3, and Vocaloid 4 singing synthesizing technologies. She also uses Crypton Future Media's Piapro Studio, a singing synthesizer VSTi Plugin. She was the second Vocaloid sold using the Vocaloid 2 engine and the first Japanese Vocaloid to use the Japanese version of the Vocaloid 2 engine. Her voice is modeled from Japanese voice actress Saki Fujita. Miku's personification has been marketed as a virtual idol and has performed at concerts onstage as an animated projection (rear cast projection on a specially coated glass screen).
Those who are familiar with the culture surrounding Japanese animation, there are quite a few followers of the music produced by voice actresses. The actress who does the voice of Hatsune Miku, Saki Fujita, is such an actress and was chosen because hers was a typical cutesy anime voice.
Miku is something called a VOCALOID (ボーカロイド), which is a vocal synthesis software developed by Yamaha. In the software, you input notes and syllables, and the software will sing them out. This gives anyone who cn afford a VOCALOID (Usually 100~200 USD per voice) the ability to create their own music with the software.
She technically is and isn’t the idol singer. Hatsune Miku is a personification/avatar of a singing synthesizer called Vocaloid. Of which she is 01 of the second series. She has become an idol in her own right however having been preforming concerts since 2009 and all her concerts are sold out.
