Who is Hatsune Miku?
Hatsune Miku is a singing voice synthesizer featured in over 100,000 songs released around the world. She was the company's first Japanese Vocaloid to be made and distributed. Hatsune Miku means "The first Sound from the Future." The name she is presently known by was inspired by her conception of the first moment a sound is made. Saki Fujita, a voice actor from Japan, delivers her voice.

What is Sakura Miku?
Sakura Miku is the name of a Hatsune Miku Japanese Vocaloid module. Sakura Miku is a pink-themed alternate hue for Hatsune Miku, designed to symbolize the start of spring. Yuki Miku figurines made by Good Smile Company served as inspiration for this. Early fan art showed this Miku with pink trim and pink hair, which are Miku's standard appearance features. The official Nendoroid that was released in 2011 helped to "solidify" her appearance. Then in 2012, Crypton decided to adapt "Creative Commons License CC BY-NC" to the original illustrations of Hatsune Miku to support open creative activities worldwide. According to Crypton, a popular video with a comically-altered Hatsune Miku in a spring design, singing Ievan Polkka, presented many possibilities of using the software virtual instrument in multimedia content creation.
