Hatsune Miku – The Worlds Most Popular Virtual Idol


Hatsune Miku – the 16 year old blue haired twintailed virtual idol, the perfect otaku idol!  She is more that just popular. She has become a symbol. She is a star. She is a diva. She is a piece of computer software! (that we all adore)

Ever since her birth on the 31st of August 2007 (and yes she is eternally 16), she has become one of the most popular idols in japan and got well known around the world as well. And the best part about her: she is not subjected to all the gossip and other dirt that real idols have. She is a pure maiden who is made entirely by her fans. The people make Miku – Miku! The people make the songs, and then the people listen to them. Here are some of my favorites:

Also the people over at Kotaku.com have written up a great post about Miku and her history.
