|General Character Data|
Hatsune Miku (初音ミク Hatsune Miku), sometimes referred to as Miku Hatsune, is a character created by Crypton Future Media, Inc. for the VOCALOID program and Piapro Studio. She was the first Japanese VOCALOID to be both developed and distributed by Crypton Future Media. She was initially released in August 2007 for the VOCALOID2 engine and was the first member of the Character Vocal Series. She was the seventh VOCALOID overall, as well as the second VOCALOID2 product released to be released for the engine. She is voiced by Saki Fujita (藤田咲 Fujita Saki).
In a cross-promotion with the Vocaloid brand, downloadable costumes and songs are available from the Japanese Playstation Network for Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA 2nd game on October 28, 2010. Miku has a song and costume specifically available to her: "Haruka-style Miku" and GO MY WAY!!. Since the original release, both the song and costume have also appeared in Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Extend. The costume is based on the "Primary-Star Plum" CUTE & GIRLY costume from THE iDOLM@STER SP.
Miku makes her appearance in the PlayStation 3 version of THE iDOLM@STER 2 as an in-game rival to the Producer's idol unit. In the game, she wears both her trademark Vocaloid costume and her Append costume. She is available as downloadable content from the first and fourth catalogs. She sings songs written by ryo (supercell) and is known both in-game and on the official website as a "Special Idol".
Trivia and Fan Culture
- While it rarely ever happens, World is Mine's save file can corrupt. As a result, another idol's model could be used for this song using Miku's motion data.
- Senbonzakura, a song originally performed by Hatsune Miku, was covered by Azusa Miura on her MASTER ARTIST 3 CD.
