Voting Opens for Snow Miku 2018

It’s that time of year again. The designs for Snow Miku 2018 have been submitted and voting has officially begun for the final 6 designs!

Each year, Good Smile Company and piapro collaborate on a contest. Fans submit their own design of both Hatsune Miku and her rabbit companion, Yukine, and the submissions are narrowed down to a group of 6. Voting is then opened up to the public for a short period of time.

This year’s voting period will last until May 29 in Japan, so pick your favorite as soon as possible! You can cast your vote right here. The winning design will be announced at Magical Mirai 2017, which takes place from September 1st to the 3rd. Afterwards, the winning Snow Miku will be turned into the official Snow Miku 2018 Nendoroid and figma, and will also appear on the Snow Miku tram and everywhere else you usually find her.

Each design is so cute that it will be hard to pick just one~! You can find last year’s Snow Miku after the break.
