Vocaloid Madness

AS Toomas pointed out, there are no real animes about Miku, but there is the program called MikuMikuDance which in it's simplest form allows to make your character dance. If you are skilled enough and/or have enough patience, you can even make short clips with it and here is an example. It shows all of your favourite Vocaloid characters doing all kinds of weird things together and to each other with some funny narrative.

To say it is "chaotic" would be underrating it.

Sharing a rare find of Aeris from VGCats comic and Miku merged together. Excellent work by the creator of VGCats Scott Ramsoomair!

The Nearing Future City vocaloid fanime

There is no such thing as Vocaloid anime. Those videos you find in Youtube are just fan made videos accompanying some song, MMDs, parodys, "openings", "trailers", etc but none can be called "anime". I saw one calling such stuff fanime, so let me use that word too.

This one almost got me, it looks professional enough, long enough and has a story behind it. You may argue, but this is the most anime-like vocaloid video I've seen. Still, it is only fanime, but a good one. Whole 8 minutes of jazzy Miku and Meiko compilation for your enjoyment.

Music is by SuzukazeP [涼風P]. The songs are from Near Future City series (近未来都市シリーズ) witch you can start watching from here in NicoVideo. The whole concept also has a webpage where you can find songs and some artwork. The series is hard to follow in Youtube, but you can get something clicking here. I don't quite understand it, but it seems to a collection of songs in multiple albums. Still the whole theme promises more.

Here is one song pick from Youtube.

This may change since I haven't listen to all these songs, but one of my favorite is this (only in NicoVideo)

I guess it is not a coincidence, but the there is an animation Iron Giant from USA that is quite similar to the one used in the first video I posted here.

EDIT: Corrected one typo in the title. I am sorry for misunderstandings it caused.

Snow Miku

We've just got lots of snow, but some people out there have Snow Miku. She's huge, but cute still.
