By day, a normal junior high school student; by night... head of a host of ayakashi!

The popular Weekly Shonen Jump manga has become anime!

Nyurarihyon no Mago
From 7/5, syndicated, every Monday night at 1:44 am on TOKYO MX (other times on different channels, check local listings)
From 7/19 on Animax, every Monday night at 10:00 pm

Nura Rikuo

13 years old. In possesion of 1/4th Nyurarihyon's blood. Generally speaking, he's a bright and kind junior high boy, but when his demon side takes over, his hair grows and he's like another person altogether!




Zen

One of Rikuo's first and most steadfast ayakashi allies and head of the "Zen" group. He acts as Rikuo's adopted brother. When his gets angry he can attack with poisoned feathers.




Aotabou

An extremely powerful ayakashi in Rikuo's entourage and head of the special forces division. Normally he can't appear in the human world... but sometimes...




Kurotabou

Another ayakashi in Rikuo's group. He often joins forces with Aotabou in battle situations.




Kubinashi

A demon in Rikou's group. At second glance it soon becomes obvious that his head is floating without a neck, so he usually wears a scarf when he appears in the human world to hide it.




Gyuuki

The leader of the "Cow Demon Group". He's very quiet and has many secrets. He also has a deep connection to Rikou.

Kiyotsugu

Rikou's classmate and a rich, somewhat spoiled kid. He loves ayakashi.

Monthly Poll: Is it Okay to Overlap Characters?

Question: When taking part in a group shoot, is it okay to choose the same character as someone else?

YES - 70%
NO - 30%

"If you like the character and can work it out with everyone beforehand, I don't think it's a big problem". 70% of you agreed with this line of thought.

On the "NO" side: "I don't think it's good to overlap characters in a shoot or meetup. Though meeting someone at the same event who just happens to be in the same costume is a totally different story...."

Reference Sheets: (VOCALOID) Project DIVA 2nd

Lots of costumes to make you squee



Hatsune Miku -Project DIVA 2nd-
Playstation Portable
Rhythm Action Game
SEGA
Released 7/29/2010
6,040 yen (tax in) retail
http://miku.sega.jp/pjd2/

The virtual idol Hatsune Miku, made popular by the internet, stars in her second rythm action game. Please enjoy the lovely singing and dancing of Miku and her friends while dressing them in your favorite cute costumes.

Hatsune Miku

Act 2 of this popular game is packed full of Miku-power

The PSP game that fans of Miku and her friends just can't put down "Project DIVA" has undergone some changes in its second incarnation. Through a simple button pressing mechanism you can perform your dream stage with Miku and her friends.

Popular net songs and original songs are both included

Quite a few popular songs from NicoNico Douga have been included in the mix this time around. But some new songs, written just for the game, have also been included.

Song List
(original song) Kochi Muite Baby / ryo (supercell)
(original song) Colorful x Melody / chiimuMOER
(original song) Yello / kz
Romeo and Cinderella / doriko
Meltdown / iroha(sasaki) and kuma(alfred)
Just Be Friends / dixie flatline
Koiiro no Byoutou / OSTER Project

A New Way to Play

The beat is still kept by pushing buttons, but long presses and double-keys have been added in DIVA 2nd. The new mechanics make the game a bit more upbeat and challenging.

New Ways to Enjoy

The "Miku Room" fuction available in the first DIVA game has been expanded. Now you can create different rooms for all of the VOCALOIDs and watch special events triggered by certain circumstances.

Miku-zukin (Red-Riding Miku)

This cute costume is modelled after the fairytale "Little Red Riding Hood". Her white tights and apron provide contract between her deep red dress and hood.



Point! ~ The Plushie in her Hood

The wolf plush riding on Miku's head is quite big. Since the wolf rides inside her hood, we recommend sewing it onto the hood so that it won't fall out.

Angel

This costume was designed to capture the innocence and adorableness of an angel. Using lace on the sleeves of her dress will add to the soft, ephemerial feel.



Check ~ Her Wingtips

Just like the name "angel" implies, Miku's huge wings are the main point of this costume. But take note: her headphones and shoes also have wings, making the costume even cuter!

Noble

Her top, ribbon and shoes are the same rich red. Paired with her panier-esque frilly skirt, they make for quite a stylish look.



Jersey

The oversized zipper on the front of her jacket is quite cute. Tons of stars are printed like lines up her sleeves!!



Colorful Drop

Her stylish, off-the-shoulder dress has a big ribbon as an accent. Her long stockings are held up by garter belts.

Reference Sheets: (VOCALOID) Project DIVA 2nd (part 2)

Osanpo Style ~ Walking Style

Her sweatshirt and miniskirt make for a pretty casual fashion-statement. Her kneesocks are covered with purple stars!



Natural

This costume uses a black and white striped skirt and knee-socks to draw the eye. Her ribbons and other accessories are also trimmed in red.



Vintage Dress

This cute costume evokes the image of a princess. Note the pink fabric used only on the front of the skirt and trim of the dress.



Check! ~ Arm covers

The arm covers on the left and right are different. The arm cover on her left arm is wrapped in chains while the cover on the right is wrapped with ribbons to match those on her legs.

Yellow

Her firefly-light yellow jacket enhances this energetic costume. Her jacket falls behind her hips in two seperate pieces.



Check! ~ Bellybutton

Her pants are tight-fitting boxers and their balance with the top is important! Leave a bit of the jacket open above the bellybutton for a wide gap to show it off in its full glory.

White Dress

This module seems to be a simple white dress at first glance. But over the top Miku is wearing a shift of transparent fabric over the base of her dress for a more subtle, layered look.



Powder

This winter costume incorporates armwarmers, a fluffy muffler and earmuffs. The muted pink base color is cute.



Check! ~ Even if it's cold, a flash of thigh!!

Miku's miniskirt and long boots still make room for a little bit of skin. If you can't find boots to fit the bill, try making them with your own adorable boot covers.

Hatsune Miku - Chou (Butterfly)

The pair to Megurine Luka's "Hana" (Flower) costume. Be careful not to leave too much open at the front and compromise your honor, or the kimono-inspired sillouette!!



Hatsune Miku - Cute

This outfit was made to match Kagamine Rin's "Cute" module. The white base is trimmed with transparent green fabric and accents in turquoise.



Pink Pops

This revealing costume looks tailor-made for an idol. Large buttons accent her hair, shirt, shorts and boots.



Spicy Nurse

This cyber-style costume was made in the image of a near-future nurse. When making the wig, line your twintails with wire to get the perfect roll effect.



Check! - Nurse-ish Props

Her cap and gloves are standard nurse-gear and lend the costume an air of authenticity. Her garter holds a gun shaped like a medicine capsule.

Spiritual

Her see-through material top is decorated all over with clovers of various sizes.



Saihate Miku

This Miku costume is taken directly from the NicoNico Douga PV "Saihate". Her black suit is accented by a single red flower at her breast.

Eeru Danju

This costume is made in the image of a white fairy. The wide-open bare-shoulder shirt shows off a wing-tatoo on her back.



Infinity

This eye-catching outfit is a gothic lolita dress paired with ghostly makeup. Her hair is gradiatied.



Check! - Plenty of Frills

The voluminous frills pouring forth from her armbands are very cute. Her sleeves, skirt and stockings are also trimmed with frills in the same material.

Characters Born on the Internet also Make an Appearance

The main VOCALOID family has also given birth to a few unofficial characters, including Akita Neru, Yowane Haku and Sakine Meiko.

Akita Neru

This tsundere "Boukaroido" was originally and internet prank. Her blonde hair is pulled up into a side-ponytail.



Yowane Haku

This fan-character was made to give a humorous voice to those who bought the VOCALOID DTM software but can't use it well.



Sakine Meiko

This fan-character was made in the image of MEIKO at the time of her 16 year-old idol debut. Both her style and voice have been aged-down.



Miku's Friends Have Gotten a Huge Upgrade!!

Other Vocaloids popularized by the internet, Kagamine Rin and Len, Megurine Luka, MEIKO and KAITO have also been included! And this time around they have original costumes to match their original songs.

Reactor

The black and white contrast in this costume really draws the eye. Her heels and the trim on her skirt give the dress plenty of yellow accents!!



Check!! ~ Black and White Contrast

The contrast between black and white is this costume's fashionable point. Even her ribbon has black on the left and white on the right.

School Jersey

This costume is made up of a school uniform, necktie and jersey. The maroon jersey is so bulky and unfashionable that it becomes cool again.



Check! - Accessory Point

Use your props to give yourself the feel of a sloppy schoolboy. The necktie is loose and slung over one shoulder while the back of his tattered school shoes have been worn down from being stood on.

Assymetry R and Assymetry L

Kagamine Rin and Len share a set of Winter/Autumn costumes. The shirts and vests are cut in calm, nuetral colors. Rin and Len's set costumes share the same headsets and vests only. Both the boots and neckties have subtle differences.



Cheerful Candy

This costume was made to match Hatsune Miku's module "Colorful Drop". The cute dress is in her image color: yellow.



Megurine Luka - Hana (Flower)

This sexy Japanese-style costume gives us an ever so slight peek into Luka's cleavage. Her hair ornament isn't the only rose accent, her obi is also decorated with the flowers.



Fraulein

This outfit was designed to evoke an old-fashioned lady who'd look nice with a parasol. The color palatte is composed solely of blues and whites, so the outfit is quite refreshing to look at.



Check! - Blue Stripes

Her dress, collar and hat all have blue and white stripes, so watch out to align them to match the references. The sleeves puff out so if you make the lines a bit fatter, the image is a bit rounder.

Campus

Student-style KAITO is transformed into a glasses fetish poster-boy. His sleeves are folded back into cuffs and held closed with buttons. Details like this make all the difference.

Modern Girl

This costume has a slightly 80s-inspired design. The inner shirt and stockings both have a shiny lamme finish so be sure to use something reflective.



Kagamine Rin - Cute

Rin's cute-du-force costume. Her voluminous shorts and matching tube top undershirt are very stylish.



Punkish

This costume was designed for dancing and was made for ease of movement. The whole outfit is made of leather for a slightly punk feel.



Check! - A peek of Hips

The side of Len's shirt have big cut-outs to show off Len's hips. Don't forget to put the same side-line into both the top and shorts for an unbroken look.

Hard Rock

This hard fashion outfit is made from leather. Her inner shirt is mesh fit over a bikini for an extra sexy look!



Fluffy Coat

This white coat is MEIKO's chosen winter-wear. There's plenty of fur at her collar and sleeves and an oversized pink ribbon is attatched to the back of her waist.



Classic

This classic costume is modelled after European nobles. His heavily sculpted, ridged collar is a focal point.

Chiffon Dress

This costume was modelled after the same one worn in the popular Nico Nico Douga PV "Just Be Friends". It looks very cute on adult Luka!!



Check! - Shirring on the Chest

The simple white dress has textured shirring on the breast. Layer as many steps as you can for the fullest, most dramatic result but remain true to the dressy feeling of the piece.

Scarlet

This costume was made as a dress for dancing. While it's a dress, the skirt also wraps around and tucks under for an unusual look.



Check! - Sexy

The large cut-outs on her chest and back give the dress an sexy, adult air. The long gloves that come nearly to the shoulders also have small cut-outs to expose even more peekaboo skin.

Neko Cyber

This is a near-future nekomimi suit. The cat-ears double as a headset and have speaker-units while the silver tail is segmented for a cybernetic look.



Check! - Metallic Feel

The top, boots and arm covers all have lots of complicated metallic silver parts. These parts really up the costume's cyber feel.
