Shonen Jump!? Seriously!? Thats the last place I would've expected to see a Hatsune Miku manga, let alone a 4-panel series. But now SJ is getting a 4-panel series featuring Hatsune Miku. My mind, it has been blown Shocked

I don't even think she deserves all this. Personally, I don't see HOW people even like her. She's freaking annoying! I guess the only good thing is that there will be another Manga formed in the world of Anime/Manga. :S

It's actually Weekly Young Jump, the magazine officially aimed at a young adult audience older than the audience of its sibling magazine Weekly Shonen Jump.

You might want to include that from the picture, this looks like a serialized version of the existing webcomic of Jitsuroku!Uta-hime san (a true account! diva-san), which shows Miku as....heheh. Well. Anyone expecting happy cutesy moe Miku in this may be disappointed.
Here's some of the online strips translated if anyone wants to see what it's like.

Note that pretty much all the punchlines rely on knowledge of famous Vocaloid songs; for a hardcore fan like me it's pretty funny but for a casual or non-fan most wont make a lick of sense. I'm interested to see if the serialized version will be like this as well, or have humour more accessible for non-fans.

It's strange because I have actually recently been wondering why Miku didn't have a manga or anime - and here it is.

Exactly. It looks like Miku is out to kill someone Anime hyper.

Anyways, I guess i'm excited to see a Miku manga, but Young Jump, Shonen Jump, whatever you wanna call it, this means if there's going to be an anime it's going to be at least two seasons long and 13 manga volumes guaranteed.
