Vocaloid Fans Celebrate Cinco de Meiko

Thanks to a bit of word play, fans get to honor Japan's first female vocaloid!

This isn't a response to Cinco de Mayo. Nor does the 5th of May day for appreciating MEIKO have anything to do with any significant date in the history of the first Japanese female vocaloid. Instead, the fan holiday is a bit of word play in which "5" can be written to look like "ko," such that a reading of the date can be twisted into "May-ko."

 

See how fans honored the vocaloid...
