Hatsune Miku's 1st Video Clip Collections to Ship in Japan
posted on by Egan Loo
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.
