Who is Hatsune Miku?
Hatsune Miku or Miku Hatsune (in Western name order) is the first character from the Japanese singing synthesizer application Vocaloid2, created by Crypton Future Media and released on 31st August 2007. Voiced by the great seiyuu Saki Fujita, Miku is considered the most popular and well known Vocaloid. Nico Nico Douga, a popular video sharing website in Japan, plays an important role in extending her popularity, even now. Moreover, manga, concerts and games, all of which involve her character, have been created since. Miku is notably known for her artificial voice which no human can reach. But as a program, Miku is unable to compose her own songs and thus popular producers were born through their use of Vocaloid and Miku’s voice. Examples include ryo from Supercell with his masterpiece Melt, kz (livetune) and his techno vibe Packaged, OSTER Project with her sweet mellow melodies, Ika with his great originality and many more. Some of Miku songs which take her into popularity:
In the end, not only is Hatsune Miku popular in Japan but also the whole world. As they say, the world is yours Miku.
