Sony Music Direct and Dwango Music Entertainment will release the first two video clip collections for the virtual idol singer Hatsune Miku on February 10. The Hatsune Miku DVD ~memories~ and Hatsune Miku DVD ~impacts~ discs will assemble 26 music videos created by supercell and other musical acts that have used Hatsune Miku's synthesized voice from YAMAHA Corporation's Vocaloid 2 software engine.
The limited first pressings of the upcoming DVDs will include bonus footage of Hatsune Miku's holographic "appearance" at last August's Miku Fes'09 (Natsu) concert. Hatsune Miku DVD ~memories~ will feature a "Black Rock Shooter" video, although Yutaka Yamamoto's final version of the animated project based on that song will not ship until spring. Two CDs called Hatsune Miku Best ~impacts~ and Hatsune Miku Best ~memories~ were already released last August and landed at #4 and #5, respectively, on Oricon's weekly album sales chart.
