大江戸ジュリアナイト (Ohedo Julia-Night) Miku

Happy 10th Birthday Miku!

August 31st, 2017

31st of August 2007 brought you into our world, and since then you have continuously blessed us with your beautiful voice and gorgeous looks. I can’t believe that I have listened to 10 years of your songs, it feels like only yesterday I became aware of your existence and instantly fell in love. Since then I’ve bought numerous goods and CDs, and even came to see you live in Osaka in 2014.

Lets look back at all the amazing songs you’ve brought to us – the creators using Miku and other Vocaloids to entertain and empower fans all over the world!

And if you are curious to where the cover photo is from, its from a song I’m obsessed about right now, called 大江戸ジュリアナイト (Ohedo Julia-Night)

Miku – ありふれたせかいせいふく

December 29th, 2015

Featured in Project Mirai 2, this song is a great representation of the robotic nature of Miku and the song itself is rather catchy. Even though its really challenging in Expert mode in the game, I enjoy failing it every time.

Sapporo Snow Festival

February 11th, 2015

SnowFestival

Every year a bunch of snow sculptures are constructed in the Ōdōri park in Sapporo. This year is the 66th Sapporo snow festival and we (Amy and I) had the opportunity to experience it first hand.

To start of, I would like to say that with big events like this, it is important to book hotels and flights early. I booked everything around the middle of November and that was apparently too late by Japanese standard. All the affordable hotels in Sapporo city were booked out, so the best I could find was a Toyoko Inn in the nearby city of Tomakomai, which is 1 hour away from Sapporo by train. But that was ok and well worth it in the end.

Magical Mirai 2014

Happy birthday Miku!! You have been with us for the past 7 years, singing amazing songs which we will remember forever. And of course good work with the concert yesterday. It was amazing!

This year was the second Magical Mirai, this year held in both Osaka and Tokyo. Together with Tac, Dale, and Mary we went to see Miku preform live on stage. But not only did we get to see an amazing performance, but there was also an exhibition of Vocaloid related art, goods, and other things.

Happy birthday to my favorite virtual idol Hatsune Miku! You were born exactly 6 years ago, but for all of us you will forever be 16 years old ^_^
You can also read the congratulations from my friends Ruben and Clara on their blogs.

On a side note, there has been news recently of the new english voice bank for Miku in Vocaloid V3. Its sounds rather good, still feels a bit weird to hear Miku speak english though.

To learn more about it you can go to the Vocaliod Wiki, or listen to a song on YouTube.
