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 with a very simple goal in mind: To please "Vocaloid" fans. And that's what he 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 lost kitten. Meiko returns home with her, teaches her to talk and puts on a collar (Obviously a DearS reference). A great start for a good read more

I thoroughly enjoyed this interpretation of the Crypton Future Media idols: Hatsune Miku, Kagamine Rin, Kagamine Len, Megurine Luka, Meiko, and Kaito. For those who are new to the Vocaloid franchise―DO NOT read this manga before you play the Project Diva games. There are many inside jokes and references that might seem confusing if you're new to Miku and her friends' adventures as voice-synthesizer idols.

• I read the Dark Horse publication of Hatsune Mix and the back of the book introduces the manga to those who have vaguely heard of Hatsune Miku. DO NOT listen to the misleading synopsis on the back of Dark Horse's 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

Story -3-
The manga attempts to do a new story each chapter. There are mangas that can do this well, but this is not one of them, each story was half baked and never really followed a real story line. A repeat story within the manga was always that the main Vocaloids, Miku, Rin and Len, were always broke. One of the recycled plots was the three of them attempting to make money in different ways, only to gather just enough money for the concert that they wanted to have, but surprise, the money is used for Meiko and Kaito’s concert. The characters were always just read more

Summary: About Vocaloid named Hatsune Miku and her adventures

Plot: There no say plot in this manga only filled with short stories of there adventures like one is Miku as Santa, one is spin of little mermaid etc. Just short stories no underlying plot.

Art: This art is quite different than most manga in meaning it less stylized like original manga style but still portrays the same look. Maybe a little lighter on lines and stuff. It does take some getting used to at first.

Plus at each section, the title has a type of song before each section.

a. Miku is 16 years and read more
