Miku Digimon

The popular virtual diva Hatsune Miku has teamed up with Digimon Adventure for an awesome collaboration as a celebration of Digimon Adventure’s 20th anniversary. The official collaborative illustration was revealed on Tuesday.

The illustration is done by Atsuya Uki, who is the character designer for the “Digimon Adventure tri” film series. It shows Hatsune Miku wearing goggles and holding a Digivice similar to the series’ protagonist Kai. Agumon is featured in the said art together with her.

A Translated message of Atsuya Uki says:

“Congratulations on your 20th anniversary, “Digimon Adventures”!

I was asked to have Hatsune Miku and Agemon to reference the “Children suspended in the sky”, one of the key visuals in the Digimon “tri.” anime.

In addition, I included Taichi’s goggles, as well as a Digivice, a symbolic bond with the Digimon.

Finally, butterflies are seen fluttering about, in remembrance of the song, “Butter-Fly”.

Their wings are adorned with a faint Digimon-chic pattern.”

More information about this collaboration will be released soon.
