“Nechusho No!No! feat. Hatsune Miku & Meiko” Music Video Uploaded in Pocari Sweat Ambassador Collaboration
The first stage of this collaboration is a new music video titled “Nechusho No!No! feat. Hatsune Miku & MEIKO”, composed by Mitchie M! In the video, Hatsune Miku and MEIKO sing in news-reporting style about the importance of staying safe in Japan’s summer heat, and also interview popular V-tubers/singers Mirai Akari, Fuji Aoi, and YuNi. They’re even joined by Hoshino Ichika from the upcoming mobile game, “Project Sekai Colorful Stage“!
The results are now in for the Miku Expo 5th anniversary song contest! Congratulations to the Grand Prize winner “AlexTrip Sands“, the two runner-ups “Turbo” and “potatoTeto“, and one honorable mention “Lorenly“! This year’s song contest accepts songs in any languages, so you may find yourself in for a surprise!
The song is new and original for this promotional video, and as such doesn’t have a name, or even a credit to the artist that composed it. But the instrumental selection and vocal tuning style sounds incredibly familiar to some well-known Vocaloid producer that we can’t put a finger on. Kudos to those who can identify who it is, and please share in the comments below!
You can expect to hear the song at the Magical Mirai Tokyo & Osaka concert events in August~September, or in the Magical Mirai 2019 OFFICIAL ALBUM which will soon be released on July 10th, 2019. Listen to it now on Youtube, Nicovideo, or Bilibili!
