Hatsune Miku is "an android diva in the near-future world where songs are lost." She is depicted as a 16-year-old girl with blue hair. Her name means "the first sound of the future."

This is an apt name, and Miku is one of the first "vocaloid" characters released. Vocaloid software allows a user to create musical elements by combining pre-recorded sounds into lyrics and words.

Miku is a moe anthropomorph, an anime-style rendering of an inanimate object - in this case, a computer program. Moe refers to strong affection felt towards an anime character or other objects, even though a real romantic relationship with it can never be obtained.

Miku is now the protagonist of the manga series Maker Hikōshiki Hatsune Mix and the video game Hatsune Miku: Project Diva. She has also performed "live" at concerts, her image being projected onto a glass screen.
