Vocaloid Idol catches air in 6 illustrations for biggest snowboard straight jump contest

The software developer Crypton Future Media announced on Monday that its Vocaloid idol character Hatsune Miku is collaborating with Toyota Big Air, the world's biggest snowboard straight jump contest. Hatsune Miku will be catching air on a snowboard as the February 11-12 contest's image character in six illustrations, including the one to the right by Takumi Torigoe. Starting on Monday, the event's advertising, tickets, and other materials will have the six Snowboarder Hatsune Miku illustrations in Sapporo City.

The Sapporo City Transportation Bureau will launch a stamp rally on January 7. 10,000 Hatsune Miku stamp sheets will be distributed for free at nine Sapporo subway stations and one municipal train office. The first 1,000 people who stamp six of the 12 spots on their stamp sheets at designated locations (including the nine subway stations, the train office, and the Hatsune Miku-wrapped trains) will receive a set of complimentary "Toyota Big Air x Hatsune Miku" illustrated tickets. The stamp rally will last until February 5 or while supplies last.

3,000 more sets of limited-edition "Toyota Big Air x Hatsune Miku" tickets will be sold in advance at major subway stations starting on January 10. The first 1,000 people who present their ticket stubs at the event site on February 12 will receive a "Toyota Big Air x Hatsune Miku" original collaboration sticker.
