Uhm, Hatsune Miku it's not an "anime singer", it's a tool: a singing synthesizer application. And yes, it has this image like an anime character but different people use it to make music without the need of a real person as a singer. Also she's not the only one that exist, there are lot of vocaloids made to speak in different languages (Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, English...). Even there are ones that don'thave this "anime" look... so yeah, it's more like a tool, like loqueando but made for songs, than an anime singer made real.

And yep, I think it's pretty cool. But sadly sometime it's not taken seriously because of this "anime" look that it has. But if you look deeper, you can see that use this software it's not easy! Miku, and the other vocaloids in general, doesn't sing by herself, there are people with amazing skills behind that make this possible. I think it a cool tool for musicians!

And about the concert... yeah, I would pay for that. Not just because you're paying for seeing an anime character on stage, but you're supporting the real musicians behind all this (:

I've heard Hatsu Miku being called a Wiki Celebrity somewhere. That's... fairly accurate actually.

Some vocaloid songs are quite fun, but what I find REALLY interesting is the crowdsourcing aspect. It blurs the line between performer and audience in many wonderful ways.

Well I am an avid fan of Miku, and I already did pay to see her live ^_^! I think Hatsune Miku is great. There is nothing wrong with her whatsoever. The creators are getting payed, just like a living singer, fans can see there singer sing live, just like a living singer, and fans can buy, listen, and dance to her music, just like a living singer. The only special thing about Miku, is that anybody can create their own song with her voice. It's brilliant, if you ask me.

You can find my entire review of her in my profile.

Talking about Miku specifically, I love her voice. Miku's voice is cute and gentle, but can can easily grow to become quite bold. Her voice is versatile. Plus, being a Vocaloid, she has an electronic sound to her voice which I find super cool. I like the sound of synth in general.

Anyway yeah, I love the whole idea behind her and Vocaloid in general.

The existence of a virtual singer helps out fledgling musicians by lending them a voice they might not otherwise have had for their music. Now anyone can start making songs without being a vocalist him/herself. These days, with things like digital audio workstations and singing voice synthesizers, you can turn idea into song more easily than ever before.

(But like Karakuripierrot said, making music still is hard work! )

I like the personifications of Vocaloids. I always thought the idea of a virtual performer was neat. Being virtual, he/she can do things actual human beings can't, and can make for some really cool shows. Being virtual also means he/she can't age, become ill, or be part of any drama, so you'll never have to worry about failing health or career. You can always count on him/her to be in top shape!

I'd definitely like to go to a Vocaloid concert. I like the music, I'm curious about the technology, and the concert sounds like a fun time.

It's definitely amazing how they programmed Vocaloids. But not really a huge fan of Miku Hatsune or anything that falls into her category. The performance on the David Letterman show was quite repetitive and the singing was just pitched way too high for me to enjoy >.< Nonetheless, it's awesome and unexpected for Miku to appear on a popular American show

I love Vocaloid a lot (to the point where I go on the wiki everyday to check updates). I like a lot of the songs created with it, the wide range of voices available, and the whole idea of being able to create your own songs with text-to-sing technology. But seeing as this thread's particularly about Hatsune Miku, I'll stop waffling on about Vocaloid in general and get on with my opinion on Miku.

I do really like Miku. Her character design is nice, and her voice is clear, youthful and versatile; it works for a lot of the songs people make with her. Her voice is sometimes a bit weak (not to mention squeaky), but overall I do like her Miku.

I can sorta see why Miku is the most popular Vocaloid (the right time, the cute eye-catching character, the distinctive voice etc), but I love a lot of the other ones as well (e.g. IA, Yuzuki Yukari, v flower, Oliver). Gee, a part of me feels gets sad to think of them as basking in the shadows of the 'Cryptoloids'.
