So recently I picked up VRChat (addictive as hell game/program by the way) and I happened across a place called Seisoken City, a location dedicated to Japanese culture including, or perhaps most specifically, to good ol' Hatsune Miku. As I was sitting there watching one of her music videos on the big screen in the city, I thought to myself the same thing as always..."Why the heck don't I love you?"
Hatsune Miku is a character who by all means, I should adore. She is a sentient computer artificial intelligence, she is adorable, she loves music and is always innocent and happy. Not only that, but she has become integrated so far into Japanese culture for a character designed just to sell a computer software. Its simply incredible what this sweet girl has achieved, so I tip my hat off to her. I'm not the biggest fan of vocaloid singing (you can't replace a human voice with a robot's and expect it to sound quite as good, I'm sorry) but Hatsune Miku is such a ray of sunshine that I find myself wondering why on earth I've never drawn or shown her any love before. Well, today that will be remedied!! Here is my very first picture of everyone's favorite digital pop star!!
To go alongside everything else, Miku is one of the few characters keeping my favorite game company SEGA afloat in Japan. I picked up Hatsune Miku Project Diva Live for my PS4 as my first personal VR experience, and it freakin' blew me away!! I hope SEGA still has plans for Miku, because they are doing wonders for her image!!
So yeah, I may not be the biggest fan of your singing, but never mind that...ROCK ON MIKU!!!

To be fair her singing isn't the worst sound in the world, I don't want to come across as a hater, for how it COULD sound, her voice is actually pretty good, I just wouldn't choose it over a real person singing in any case.
