  1. It's because she's the MAIN one, what's wrong with that? they're already making a Kaito and Luka append, just think what might come next. 🙂

  2. English…If Hatsune Miku sing English songs well,she will sing Chinese songs well,too…
    As a Chinese,I’d like her to sing Chinese songs.(I can understand what she sing.^_^)
    (I’m only 14,if I did something wrong with the grammer or etiquett,plese don’t laugh or angry at me…)

  3. Hey Chinese Miku fan! Your gramar is great, i cant notice anything wrong… then again i am bad at spelling. i cant wait for a vocaloid store and the english version of vocaloid! i have a patched english Miku Vocaloid software that requires romaji and i cant wait for the english version! i hope it comes out soon… im not too sure about it now because of the radiation and sunami that hit Japan. I hope they are ok, and the english vocaloid comes out soon

  4. This is amazing. I just listened to her sing “Ballet Micaniqe” On youtube, and amazed at how far they’ve come. What I would love is if they made the Kagamine twins sing in English, too. But I agree with Paulchan- Miku’s already so popular, so why not do other vocaloids first? The others need more popularity.

  5. Personally, I don’t see why people think this is a bad idea. Making Miku sing English is great, and will be easier for those who’re having trouble learning Japanese. I know you guys are saying that people may forget where she came from, but really? Anyone who sees an anime-style character (Miku) can’t possibly forget that it’s originally a Japanese style. At least nobody I know. And, they aren’t exactly giving Miku to America, wouldn’t the original creators of Miku still be in charge of the whole deal? She’d still have the same songwriters, and if they decide to hire American songwriters, then the original creators should still have a say-so in which songs are official and which aren’t. Besides, It’s not all of us western residents that forget what music really should be. Like me, I’m American, and I listen to Vocaloids more than any other artist, because their music really IS music.
