Yes, following Megurine Luka’s “Double Lariat” last month we now have another Vocaloid song which has hit two million views on Nico Nico Douga as well. And this time round it’s none other than Hatsune Miku’s well-known song “The Disappearance of Hatsune Miku” (Hatsune Miku no Shoushitsu or Shoushitsu in short) which achieved the feat on Aug 14th 2009 at 22.10 hours Japan Time.

More information about the story of the song as well as videos will be posted so do continue reading after the break~

And here’s the original version of the song below, along with the credits.

The story of the song talks about Hatsune Miku reaching the end of her life due to an unknown virus/disease even as she hopes to become a human instead of just a singing tool made for humans. She wishes to sing even more songs and remain with her friends despite the end being near for her, which was noticed in the very fast singing of the song. Many different PVs have been created ever since the song was uploaded back in April 2008, and you can watch a couple of them below.

It was once thought that the song was practically impossible for humans to sing due to the lyrics being close to barely distinguishable when the song reaches its super-fast parts. But however, a group of artists on Nico Nico Douga has managed to done so and there’s a total of 16 artists altogether. Here’s the video below of them singing the almost impossible song.

And now that it’s been shown that humans can actually sing the song, then how about other methods of expressing the song, such as in sign language? Here’s one video below doing exactly just that.

That was no easy feat there, expressing the song in sign language with such fast hand movements, it definitely deserves respect in my opinion. :D

And now, who would want to uninstall Miku ever again after watching the videos? For everyone who didn’t, “Thank you for not uninstalling”. :)

That’s all for now, do stay updated for more Vocaloid news.

  • I gotta say that Miku with hand signs are creepy!

    • redemption2

      For the MMD Cup III, they made Miku sign the entire thing based on that video, while she was disappearing.

  • lurkingknight

    There have been a few more singers on nico to accomplish singing this song since that chorus version was made, I'd say there's over 20 now.

    CosMo has a new song out, and there's parts that are even faster than disappearance. So far I think 2 singers have been able to sing it, neither of which have done disappearance.

  • Nick_is_a_fan

    wow… Miku summoning no jutsu art summing Vocaloid, that guy was fast as lightning…

  • I thought it was because that she litterally dissapeared for a day. For one day, all searches of her on the internet litterally came up empty.

  • Ryuuzaki

    Haha notice one of the users singing has Light Yagami as a picture XP thinking of him singing this song makes me laugh XDD

  • GuestPerson

    …Does this mean Hatsune Miku stopped making songs alltogether? Sorry, I’m new to her…

    • SonicFire2

      Nope.

      • TewiGrandioseSeed

        Got to search the name “Hatsune Miku” in the USA

    • Miku fan

      No. Its was the day she “disappeared” from the internet. No  site would allow you to look up the name hatsune miku. this caused panic to millions of her fans. Hours after her disapperance she was able to be searched again thanks to die hard fans and otakus

  • Anna1o9

    If you read the Hatsume Mix, Miku came back as a vocaloid.

  • Lythis08

  • j0v

    You people are a bit nuts. Remeber, “she” isn’t real. Go outside. I am told there is what is commonly referred to as “fresh air” beyond the walls, where non-LED light actually rains down from above.

    • Guest87

      No one cares! >:p u r mean, think of all of us miku lovers before you blurt something stupid

    • Jaelo

      Um “fresh air” is an air fully contaminated n who cares whst u think ppl decide how to life n u cant chamge that

    • Name

      And what makes you think she’s not real? Yes, she’s not human, and yes, she is a computer program, but that doesn’t mean she’s fictitious. She interacts with people, she has live performances, so what makes her not real? She’s just as real as anyone else.

  • Unknown

    Does anyone else think that the clothes she wears are a bit too…. Showey?

    • Anon

      It depends on who draws her and how they decide to draw her.

  • MikuLuver44

  • ????

  • SonicFire2

    No shet.

  • lolful64

    I really don’t get why is she gone. Her software was deleted? Did people get tired of her? I really don’t know

  • Guest

    what about a computer ghost network(or participate user) plus an recovery ability like zero acess virus that will store her in case if she get deleted (from one or some computer) she will got recovered from other computer
