The documentary will air on NHK General on March 1
Virtual music star Hatsune Miku will be the star of the next episode of the NHK documentary series Professional: Shigoto no Ryugi (Professional Work Style), which profiles high-level people in their field of work or showbusiness. The documentary ponders the statement, "How was the 16-year-old, who shocked the Japanese music scene, born and what has changed since her birth? From the minds of many, we get a closer look at her style."
Being the virtual star that Miku is, the documentary will interview the software's creators; project leader Kenmochi Hideki, Crypton Future Media developer Wataru Sasaki, and VOCALOID producer DECO*27. These interviews are previewed in a trailer for the special.
Previous people documented on the program include Hideaki Anno on the production of Evangelion 3.0+1.0, comedian duo Sandwichman, leader of the Influenza and Respiratory Disease Team of the Pandemic and Epidemic Disease Department at the WHO Professor Nahoko Shindo MD, and many many more.
Ultimate Diva Virtual Singer Hatsune Miku Professional Work Style is scheduled to air on NHK General in Japan on March 1 at 10:30 PM. While there's no English subbed version announced at this time, the more popular Professional Work Style specials have been subbed at a later time.
