This thread is intended to compile Cryptonloid news that don't fit in other threads and aren't quite big enough for a thread of their own. These could be, for example, collaborations, pop up shop news, media appearances etc. Previously these kind of news have been spread out in General Discussion, fanclubs and some other threads, or left unposted altogether.

Our first piece of news here is a good example of what kind of news I mean:
rockin' star × Hatsune Miku pop up shop at Amnibus Store/ Magnet by Shibuya109, open from Feb 19th to Mar 7th. Limited merchandise will be sold at the shop.

It's obvious why they don't give further information, but I always wish you could get the actual recipes for things like this. They do give a lot more information than other places I've seen, though, so maybe you could try to put your own together....

The award-winning works will be exhibited at the art exhibition "Hatsune Miku Chronicle" scheduled to be held in 2021.

I think the contest is a really neat idea!
There's fanart of Miku being drawn all the time, and I think this could mix things up in a fun way, the challenge is certainly interesting!
But I hope Crypton will give the participants at least some exposure, maybe through a showcase video or in a similar way that they did with the Snow Miku design contest. It wouldn't be a lot of work for them and feels more personal than everyone only posting their entry on their own

Today the NHK program "Numa ni hamatte kiitemita" had their second Vocaloid special episode aired, this time having Rin and Len appear on the show and perform a live show. Apart from that the featured Vocaloid culture and music in general.


The episode is available to watch for a week, but unfortunately only of you're in Japan

Edit: VocaSphere is doing a good summary on the program contents if you're curious:
