Hatsune Miku 初音ミク

The voice with turquoise duvets

 

HatsuneMiku has been a phenomenon in Japan for over 10 years now. Born from an innovation by the Japanese company Yamaha called Vocaloid, she has gone from innovative singing program to digital idol that travels around the world. Throwback to an eternal high school girl.

 

 

Basically, Vocaloid

HatsuneMiku was born with the second version of Vocaloid, which allows you to create a song or a melody from lyrics and a tune. Hatsune Miku (meaning "the voice of the future" in Japanese) is a virtual representation of one of the software's voices. Marketed in 2007, she is 16 years old and measures 1m58, has long turquoise blue hair and is dressed in a schoolgirl costume . Its fetish object is the negi (Japanese onion in the shape of a leek). Hatsune Miku is not the only character created as part of the program, but she is by far the most successful, quickly outgrowing her status as a mere voice avatar .
