One of Japan’s iconic musical idols is not even real. Her name is Hatsune Miku – an anime inspired program called a Vocaloid. Vocaloids are anime inspired characters based off of musical software that are often featured in original musical compositions, video games, fan art, music videos, and so much more. Hatsune Miku has been a driving force in Japan and is slowly making her way to popularity in North America and the rest of the world. How can a musical idol that is not even real inspire so many to express their creativity?
This is a very interesting topic and one I would like to hear your full opinion on. I have personally heard multiple songs sung by Hatsune Miku and I would like to hear other people thoughts on her/its success. A suggestion if your looking for references, the FineBros on Youtube did a react episode of elders watching a Hatsune Miku concert. – tylerjt8 years ago
You might already be aware of this, but Aoi from The GazettE tweeted controversially about vocaloids and how they made a mockery of flesh and blood musicians like him.

I think this is a great topic - it's an interesting thing to see how something so intangible has such a solid impact. – DullahanLi8 years ago
