Truthfully, I didn't like Hatsune Miku GRAPHICS Vocaloid Art & Comic when it first arrived amidst many better art books at the beginning of March. But having been recently reminded of it, I decided to have another look through to see how I was feeling about it. I'm slightly more appreciative of the new and exclusive art works done for the collection, but for the most part I still feel like art book really lacks focus and even quality consistency from page to page.
YahaKo's full color doujinshi RE:UNION released during the Vocaloid Master 9 (ボｰマス９), brings you Hatsune Miku and the other Vocaloids like you've never seen them before: as bad-ass gun-toting idols. With the success of Black Rock Shooter, it almost makes you wonder why so many artists try to keep the characters looking cute!
Momose Hisashi's Rio Miku is a collection of illustrations of (you guessed it) Hatsune Miku and Rio de Channel that span a few years for this artist. Though more familiarly known as Momo, I kept the artist's actual name for the category because it's a lot easier to search for than just "Momo."
