Miku’s a star! Hatsune Miku performed live on Letterman last night!

miku_letterman_udon_fb

Congratulations to Hatsune Miku for her excellent performance on David Letterman last night! Dave seemed pretty chuffed about the whole thing, and the responses across the internet seem to be really positive as well!

Of course we’re thrilled about that, as UDON is one of Miku’s biggest North American supporters! We’ve now published six volumes of material featuring Hatsune Miku and the Vocaloids (seven, if you count PIXIV Alamanac!). We hope that Miku’s fandom continues to grow throughout North America, and we thank all of the Miku fans around the world for their support of our art books!

If you haven’t seen it yet, you can check out the performance embedded below, and keep scrolling to see all of UDON’s Hatsune Miku book releases!
