Finally, in 2023, Hatsune Miku is 16 years old! When did Miku make her first appearance? When is Hatsune Miku’s birthday?
Hatsune Miku is 16 Years Old…
… by design and in reality!
Hatsune Miku was created to be the mascot, the voice and the face, of the Sony/Sega/Yamaha Vocaloid software that was released in 2007. She was designed to be a 16-year-old vocal android… a Vocaloid. The graphic designer who created the look of the character, Kei, created a beautiful young lady with lots of attitude and high style.
Who is Hatsune Miku?

Hatsune Miku, codenamed CV01, was the first Japanese VOCALOID to be both developed and distributed by Crypton Future Media, Inc.. She was initially released in August 2007 for the VOCALOID2 engine and was the first member of the Character Vocal Series. She was the seventh VOCALOID overall, as well as the second VOCALOID2 vocal released to be released for the engine. Her voice is provided by the Japanese voice actress Saki Fujita. There have since been numerous installments, such as additional voice libraries dubbed ‘Append’, as well as an upgrade for the VOCALOID3 engine, which contained an English vocal release. She received a VOCALOID4 update to her Japanese and English voicebanks in August 2016, as well as a Mandarin Chinese voicebank in September 2017. On August 31, 2019, Miku received her first voicebank outside of VOCALOID, that being Piapro Studio with her NT release. While Crypton is focusing on their own program, they are still in collaboration with YAMAHA and will continue to sell VOCALOID products in parallel to the Piapro Studio editions.
Tattooed with 01…
Hatsune Miku is Voacloid #01.
Critics have discussed the fact that Meiko was actually the first character created for the Vocaloid product. True, before Miku arrived on the scene, the software had included images of Meiko printed on a card so as to somewhat humanize the digital product they had created. But the Release of Vocaloid in 2007 was a total restructure of the software’s marketing program and Meiko was out and Miku was in!
We love Miku… the entire world has been captivated by her!
Miku is a Virtual Diva!
Imagine if these Digital Diva creations were developed into personalities more human than human!
I wrote an article several years ago about the importance of her being a Digital Diva and how she could be the start of a glorious future for a new race of Virtual Starlets!
On August 31st, 2023…
