This manga sort of functions like a compilation of short stories, each short story having a different setting and set of characters than the last. The only characters that are consistent between chapters are the Vocaloids (and even some of them are missing in certain chapters.)
There is a wide variation of story lines between each chapter. The plots can at times be very hard to follow, but other ones are relatively straightforward. None of them are very well written, they're amusing at best and confounding at the worst.
The art is done by the original character designer of Miku and I have to say, he(?) read more

The artist "KEI" should be familiar to all Hatsune Miku fans. Not only is he her father/designer, he frequently draws covers for the PSP/Vita/PS3 games as well and even has art books dedicated to Miku. He made this manga is made with a very simple goal in mind: To please "Vocaloid" fans. And that's what it did.

The manga starts with Meiko returning from work, when she suddenly notices a green-haired chibi-girl in an orange box at the street, just like a kitten. Meiko returns home with her, teaches her to talk and puts on a collar (Obviously a DearS reference). A great start for a read more

The Maker Unofficial: Hatsune Mix is a compilation of short stories intended for comic relief for the Vocaloid admirer. Drawn and written by KEI - character designer for Crypton Future Media's Vocaloid2: Hatsune Miku, Kagamine Rin/Len and Megurine Luka - it is the ultimate example of "Why let good character concepts go to waste?" After all... Would you be satisfied with creating just a boxart?
Because of KEI's characters being only said five and a story being quite lacking with only 5 characters, KEI has added more of the Vocaloid family (MEIKO and KAITO being good examples). However, because they were not his design, their names read more

Manga: Karasu Tengu Uju Nago Mix
And again before us manga about a life of musical idols! Only now all where is more interesting and lovelier! Petty intrigues at school karasu!

Manga: Aku no Meshitsukai
They don't really have much in common, except they are both based off of Vocaloid. Aku no Meshitsukai is based off of Mothy's song Daughter of Evil by Rin Kagome.

Manga: Yotsubato!
They both reminded me of each other because they are laidback, cute, sometimes silly(More in Yotsubato!'s case), and have memorable characters.

Manga: Miku-4
Both star Miku Hatsune. Both have short but quaint story lines.
If you're a Miku fan both of these are worth a look.
