New Design for Hatsune Miku – American Version

So they have come up with a separate character design for Hatsune Miku for Americans. Firstly, I don’t see the need of making a separate one for Americans. Secondly, the new design has completely crushed the cute image that Miku has established all over.

What do you think of the new design? I’m not gonna say it’s the worst. It’s just that I don’t see the need of it. 😐

  1. Localization crews often go too far. I have yet to see if this is the official Americanization – in the US version of Alteil, for instance, Hatsune Miku was left as-is for her promotional crossover – but it would not be surprising for localization crews to replace “cute” with “sexy.”

    Quite honestly, I think it’s terrible and somewhat offensive. I don’t think Miku should have a different costume either–she wouldn’t be Miku anymore. If anything, a slight colour change or subtle outfit differences (think Desmond Miles in Assassin’s Creed II vs. Brotherhood) would suffice…
