Dark Horse Comics releases the second volume of a graphic novel about one of the most valuable pop-culture in all of Japan is Vocaloid’s Hatsune Miku.

But this time the story will be about her little sister, Rin Kagamine. It’s much simple than the last one because the story tells about her daily life as a Vocaloid. However, she only has one goal for her is to make Rin-chan into the most popular Vocaloid idol in Japan. The story is drawn and written by Hiro Tamura, and original work by sezu.

Since this manga is based on an original song by sezu, I doubt that every Hatsune Miku manga that I’m willing to read is originated by songs, written and composed by some various composers. It’s more like gathering and making some ingredient for food until it became perfect to serve for dinner. Rin-chan is living with the manager just in order to have some preparations for her to make the cutest Vocaloid of all. So he and Len Kagamine are trying to do everything they can to make her famous. The daily life adventures of Rin Kagamine continues to spend the most fun days of her life while going to school, work, and preparations to become a Vocaloid.

Whether or not, Rin Kagamine is one of the most important pieces for Vocaloid’s Hatsune Miku’s franchise. Surely you have seen all of the videos of the other Vocaloids success, but it never stops until it went over big throughout the world. However, in the manga version, it’s very memorable to see the Vocaloids like Rin adjusts her everyday life for her to live by having fun. The manga is more of a comedy sketch and so on. And like I said from the last review of “Hatsune Miku Acute” manga, this whole manga is based on an original song from a Japanese composer while the artist can do the drawings and the stories. The Vocaloids were programmed to make songs and sing it together, and Japanese programmers make more videos of them singing over a decade. If you’re actually a fan of Rin Kagamine and her cuteness along with this manga series, then I would suggest reading this manga because somehow you’ll find any difference to the song and the story.
