Mikumentary is an ongoing series of short, non-commercial documentary films about the Hatsune Miku phenomenon. Bringing together interviews with fans, scholars, artists, Ps and more, these films are both about the Miku community and my contribution to the community.

Check out these recent art blog entries about Mikumentary here and here, or the 22-entry Youtube playlist about people trying to explain Miku.
