10 different teams from both classes were in contention for the championship. In the GT300 class, all eyes were on the #61 Subaru BRZ currently leading in its class while in GT500 it was all on the class’s reigning champions the #1 STANELY NSX.
The team placed in 19th position for the start of the race as they failed to qualify into the second qualifying session. But electrical troubles would follow the next day and the #4 Hatsune Miku AMG would start in last place from the pitlane.
The Western release will be renamed to “Hatsune Miku: Colorful Stage!”, likely to help put more emphasis on Crypton Future Media’s characters, versus the other original characters also present in the game.
Some changes were made to the livery of the #4 Hatsune Miku AMG with the Haregi version of the 2021 Racing Miku on the bonnet of the car since there will be no 10 Hours of Suzuka race this year. And a collaboration with the streetwear brand Anti Social Social Club decorated on the rear wing of the car.
Good Smile Company has started an all-new figure line called HELLO! GOOD SMILE, which features characters in a simple yet charming style, and for very low prices. The first characters available in this series are Kagamine Rin, Kagamine Len, and of course, Hatsune Miku!
This race was special for the team as they celebrated their 100th race in Super GT. A special commemorative video was uploaded as well as a 1/7 scale figure of the 2021 Racing Miku had been announced.
In the video above, you can first hear Hatsune Miku singing at 0:16~0:24. Kenji Kawai was in charge of the music composition for this commercial, so fans may recognize the hints at some of their other music works! Finally, there’s a Racing Miku 2017: Team Ukyo Cheer ver. prize figure from BANPRESTO is visible on the shelf at 0:42 in the trailer.
A software update for Hatsune Miku NT and Piapro Studio NT has been released today, finally bringing us the missing Whisper and Dark vocal libraries that were promised.

The grand prize winner will have their song featured in the upcoming Magical Mirai 2021 live concert event, while the runner-ups historically had their songs featured in the overhead music played in the concert hall before the start of each concert.
MikuFan was presented the opportunity by GAMO2/DJ-DAO to review the DIVALLER, a custom 3rd party controller for the Hatsune Miku Project DIVA games on PS3, PS4, and Switch (it even works on PC). This controller is styled after the Hatsune Miku Project DIVA Arcade cabinet controls, and is built out of a sturdy (and hefty!) aluminum frame.

Hatsune Miku is once again lending her aid for safety awareness in the Hokkaido prefecture of Japan! In response to an increase in deadly motorcycle accidents, the Hokkaido Prefectural Police Traffic Department has adopted Hatsune Miku in a motorcyclist safety awareness campaign.
The full concert spanned nearly 90 minutes and broadcasted a total of 3 times to cover time zones for viewers around the world. 16 songs were featured, some classics, and some new ones! Check out the full setlist below:
Hatsune Miku is joining Good Smile Company’s newest Nendoroid series Swacchao! This special and more affordable series of Nendoroids features some of your favorite characters in a new chair-sitting position. This release is based on the previous Nendoroid Hatsune Miku 2.0, and there’s also an optional parts set for those that already own the original Miku 2.0 Nendoroid!
The haregi version is meant to be for the 10 Hours of Suzuka but the race was announced back in March earlier this year that it will be cancelled due to the ongoing pandemic. Despite the disappointment from the team, they wrapped the new Racing Miku on a spare bonnet for display at the Akiba CO Gallery.
The #4 Hatsune Miku AMG would start in 11th position after an improvement from their last round in qualifying prior to the race. The race would see the first use of the Full Course Yellow (FCY) meaning all cars on track must slow down and overtaking is not allowed. The same rule applies like with the safety car that the pit lane closes during a Full Course Yellow.
The Hatsune Miku: Love is War Refined Ver. 1/8 scale figure from Good Smile company is now available for preorder! This special figure remake also includes a Good Smile Company 20th anniversary book, which features the staff’s top 20 items, special interviews and more (book is in Japanese only).
