So will she be put in the front pages or the back pages?
In case you guys don't know the front pages are the SFW section and the back is the NSFW section.

Aya Hirano was a Weekly Playboy cover girl a few months ago by the way.

The original Nico News article has an interesting picture and says that they'll be taking photographs of Risa and splicing them with the Miku illustration(s); I guess since idol photos are photoshopped anyway, it's not that much extra effort <_<;

officially to much, well maybe its a ploy to get Otaku intristed in real life women, get the moe cartoon girl in and maybe they'll look at real life adult women, I see it all makes sence

A drawing of an anime girl and a photo of a real girl ultimately amount to the same thing. Thinking one is better than the other just means you're in denial.

I am reminded of the time Marge Simpson appeared in Playboy.

No. Nononono.
They could wait until the year 3000 and it would still be too soon.

First appearance was in 1987(Ullman)/1989(FOX series), so yeah, 20+ years too little, too late.

Given how much porn is out there of The Simpsons even before the Playboy spread, it was too little, too late. Hell, even those "Video Game Specials" Playboy had often had characters from either recent (less than a couple of years)a/or upcoming games. The entire idea was just a waste of time (much like Playboy in general nowadays).

Umm... I thought Miku was 16... is that the legal age to be posing in a nudie magazine? What with all these underaged fictional character laws being passed... Cool

And the Simpsons spread was NOT too late. I happily bought several copies for myself and friends, and my dad happily displays the fold out in his bar. Our only complaint was that her feature was only like... 2 pages. And I am a girl who never buys Playboy. I'm sure they achieved their goal with the Simpsons stunt, though I have no idea how many more extra than usual they sold.

Personally seems an odd mix. When I think Vocaloid, playboy and sex are not on the list of what first comes to mind.

Reeks of bad marketing ploy if you ask me.
