Hatsune Miku VocaloP Special Feature: Hachi (Kenshi Yonezu), Creator of ‘Matryoshka’

In honor of Miku Day on March 9, we're introducing Vocaloid producers for Hatsune Miku! This time we feature Hachi, the creator of “Matryoshka.”

Hachi (real name: Kenshi Yonezu) is a musician who composes original songs and posts them on Nico Nico Douga under the name “Hachi.” As a VocaloP, he is the third and youngest person to have a video hit 2 million views after famous producers ryo (supercell) and wowaka. His musical compositions have very unique melodies. Hachi himself has commented on why that may be, stating, “What feels pleasant to me seems to be peculiar for others. In other words, what I find pleasant is simply due to my personal sensibilities.”

March 9 is Hatsune Miku Day!
In Japanese, three can be pronounced as both “mi” and “san.” Nine can be pronounced as both “ku” and “kyuu.” Therefore, March 9 can be pronounced, for the sake of pronunciation play, as “Miku” and “sankyuu,” which sounds like “thank you.” That is why March 9 is the day to celebrate Hatsune Miku.

Tokyo Otaku Mode operates on the idea of “bringing happiness to the world through otaku culture,” and since Hatsune Miku is a big part of Japan’s otaku culture, we had to do something exciting for Miku Day, March 9.

Tokyo Otaku Mode will be celebrating Hatsune Miku with special features that will run until March 22 at 7:00 p.m. (PST)!
What’s in store:
1. A sale on Hatsune Miku products
2. Introductions to Hatsune Miku illustrations and music
3. In-depth articles related to Hatsune Miku

Plus! A concurrent campaign is also being held with exclusive Hatsune Miku products as prizes! Get the details here!
