So what did you think of Miku on Letterman last night?

So yeah, it happened. It's still seems weird that a Vocaloid was on the David Letterman show! I personally can't quite get my head around the whole thing. I was pretty glad that they played Sharing the World, but question it a bit due to i...

First Impressions: Mekakucity Actors

"Oh hey, a Shaft show! I didn't end up watching Nisekoi, so I'll be sure to watch this." This was the only reason I decided to pick up Mekakucity Actors. I had no idea that I was diving into what seems like a reasonably well-established fan...

The Dose: Bump of Chicken & Hatsune Miku

Some combinations just work. Peanut butter and chocolate, Red Bull and vodka, Shinji and Kaworu. However, if you told me Bump of Chicken and Hatsune Miku teaming up was a good idea, I probably thought you were preparing me for an April Foo...

New twin vocaloids Anon and Kanon to debut March 3rd

I love Japanese music but I've never really gotten in the whole vocaloid phenomenon. I know about the various vocaloids and saw Hatsune Miku's Anime Expo concert on DVD (I wasn't able to see it live unfortunately) but even if I had a gun to...

Import Preview: Utakumi 575

I quite enjoy the rhythm action genre.  By no means am I great at them, but there's something undeniably appealing about putting a comfy pair of headphones on and getting in the zone. I've always been big on the genre when playing hand...

Meiko is ready to crush you

So I came across the latest demo for Meiko V3, and this time it's all hardcore and dark and stuff. The song, Crush Down, is by L.A.M.B. and I haven't quite decided how I feel about it yet. The song itself and its style aren't the problem, ...

Go on a road trip with Miku as your guide

This is a neat trick for Android phone users--get Miku (and other vocaloid voices) to speak when you use Google Maps turn-by-turn navigation. By using an undocumented feature, the voiceover audio for Google Maps navigation can be customized...

Meiko's latest demo does her way more justice

In a continued effort to demonstrate how dynamic and versatile Meiko V3 (set to be released in February 2014) is, another demo has been released. And this time it's a more powerful, upbeat tune that I can definitely get behind. The slower ...

Project DIVA F 2nd will take the stage in March

It's surprising no one that there will be yet another Project DIVA game heading to home consoles, and it might just be the last release before we see it head to next gen consoles. But why waste a perfectly good dancing engine? It's good for...

Meiko's English demo doesn't sound half bad

It's only just over a minute long, but the above video is a demo of what Meiko v.3 sounds like using English. I haven't liked most of the English Miku songs we've been hearing lately, but this Meiko one doesn't sound at all bad in comparis...

More songs announced for Hatsune Miku Project Mirai 2

Do you remember the first Hatsune Miku Project Mirai game? You know, the one that came out on the 3DS? Probably not, because it's just one of the many Miku games that is still stuck with a Japan-only release. It was a rhythm game, surprise...

Oculus Rift app lets you "shake hands" with Miku
