Hatsune Miku-illu by KEI

Hatsune Miku (初音ミク, Hatsune Miku) is a singing voice synthesizer software product developed and published by Crypton Future Media, as well as a character for the same software.

Overview[]

First released in August 31 2007, Hatsune Miku uses Yamaha Corporation's VOCALOID 2 singing voice synthersizer technology, and her voice is sampled from Saki Fujita, a Japanese voice actress.[1][2]

Character-wise, Hatsune Miku is depicted as a 16 years old girl with long blue-green twin tails.[3][2] KEI designed the character and drew the art for the first version of the software package.[4]

Relations with Black★Rock Shooter[]

Songwriter ryo composed a song using Hatsune Miku's software for huke's eponymous character. As a character, Miku is also depicted singing the song in several Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA rhythm games by SEGA, including Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA f (PlayStation Vita),[5] Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA F (PlayStation 3)[6], and Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Future Tone (PlayStation 4).[7]

Despite some resemblance on their outward appearances, Black★Rock Shooter is not a variation of Hatsune Miku; the two are separate characters. Piapro, a content posting website run by Crypton Future Media, posted a statement on their official blog to clarify that huke's character is not a product of their company.[8] Furthermore, in response to a comment asking if the two are of the same character, huke estimated Black★Rock Shooter to be around 15 years old, which is one year younger than the Vocaloid character.[9]
