Happy Hatsune Miku Day!!

+ posted by njt in Shout-Outs on Mar 9, 2010 19:46

I'm sure you're wondering why March 9th is Hatsune Miku day well, rest assured! You're about to find out :D. And with any special day, there's prizes to be won!

I'm mentioning Miku day because HearJapan, a site dedicated to connecting anime/manga fans with great music, has just sent me a press release regarding a neat little contest. Here's what they have to say:

Yokohama, Japan - March 9th, 2010 - Why is March 9th Hatsune Miku's day?
Well in Japanese 3 (mi) + 9 (ku) = Miku! To celebrate another year of
mesmerizing music from the world's premiere Vocaloid singing idol
Hatsune Miku, HearJapan and Crypton Future Media are teaming up to
bring you, yes YOU, a load of presents for Miku's day!

Well OK, there is a small catch. First you need to download a
selection of 10 free Vocaloid samples from Hatsune Miku Treasure Hunt at HearJapan.
No, really, they're all free! The only problem is that they seem to be missing
their names. What you need to do is sift through the Vocaloid
collection on HearJapan (that's over 150 releases!) by listening to
the 30 second samples and figure out the names of all 10 songs. The
songs are a selection of both new and old tunes, possibly even the newest
Avtechno “Free” and Reng “Nextone -Krnt Edit- “ releases. Ten lucky
winners will be randomly picked from the correct answers.

Oh, the gifts!

The 1st place winner will receive a Hatsune Miku Nendoriod Figure
(courtesy of Good Smile), complete with several expressions and even a
leek to spin, a Hatsune Miku calendar and 5,000 yen in HearJapan

2nd, 3rd and 4th place will get a figure of their choice from Kagamine Rin, Kagamine Len or Megurine Luka, plus 2000 yen in
HearJapan credit.

5th through 8th will get a calender plus 1000 yen in HearJapan credit

9th and 10th will get 500 yen in HearJapan credit.

So hurry up and get the 10 free samples through the link below and
start tracking down those songs!

hard to find and to explore the unexplored in the world of Japanese

Considering everything involved is all free what do you have to lose? Also, if you've never heard vocaloid music this is a great time to check it out! As she's been my yome favorite singer for the past few months ;). Good luck!

Lol nice...
Miku's day xDDD\\

But I'm too lazy to participate in the contest since the winning chances are probably so slim that it's would be in vain and it's in Japan OTL...

Not to mention I'm a huge Vocaloidfag that niconico the new vocaloid releases song almost everyday...

Shame on me.
