Miku YouTube Channel
Visit Miku YouTube Official Channel!
Crypton Future Media has now opened the official Hatsune Miku channel on YouTube. Along with several playlists pointing to other videos such as promotional videos for KarenT releases and Toyota/Google advertisements. In their press release, Crypton stated that they opened this channel in order to further enhance rapport between creators, fans and listeners after witnessing a phenomenon where fans not only listened to the music, but also took part in creating derivative works themselves in this chain of creation, known as the Hatsune Miku movement. Furthermore, they have received the consent of the approximately 500 VOCALOID creators with the record label KarenT to register their works with YouTube’s content management system so that Crypton can receive a portion of the proceeds from videos which use those works and pass them onto the original creators.
