March 9 is Miku Day!

March 9 is a very special day! In Japanese three is pronounced “mi” and nine “ku” but as three can also be pronounced “san” and nine “kyuu” (thank you), March 9 is the perfect day to pay tribute to the much loved Vocaloid singing star Hatsune Miku. We’ve brought together a selection of Miku artwork to demonstrate just how much Miku means to all of us. From figure photography to cosplay and digital art, here are some ways Miku has inspired fans worldwide.
