More and more Japanese public offices need a help of popular vocaloid characters. Shizuoka Prefectural Office's culture policy division has published "Orchestra! Hajimete no Kanshou (The first appreciation)," a 32-page guidebook about orchestra music for young people and children featuring Hatsune Miku, Kagamine Rin/Len, and Megurine Luka. The prefecture has three professional symphony orchestras and more than ten amateur groups in the area.
In cooperation with Crypton Future Media, the developer of the vocaloid software, the prefecture has printed 20,000 copies of the full-color guide book and has distributed them to the elementary, junior high and high schools, and public libraries in the prefecture. The manga and illustrations are drawn by the members of Shizuoka Manga Laboratory. You can download an e-book version on their website for free now. Check the sample pages below.
