Miku vs Clash

mikumiku-clash-mosaiced.jpg

Slutty holographic sensation Hatsune Miku’s encounter with music rag Clash is even worse than anticipated – in the actual magazine, guro-cosplayer “triangle-face” is the star of the show throughout virtually the entire 10 page special.

A brave soul risked buying the issue and taking some thankfully blurry photographs of the contents:

mikumiku-clash-007.jpg
mikumiku-clash-008.jpg

Sharp-eyed observers may notice a single 2D illustration of the virtual diva somehow crept in amongst the carnage.

The article itself reportedly contains the kind of basic factual inaccuracies which might be expected of music journalists, with a good portion of the article spent discussing William Gibson and his novel “Idoru” rather than Miku herself.

Incidentally, some wag reported the Clash website as an “attack site” shortly after the original article – whilst Miku fans might concur that it is distributing “harmful” content, this is probably not the sort of harm meant…

    Her head is shaped like an upside-down traffic cone.

    Putting a traffic cone over her head would have been an improvement...

    And then throw her against the ground headfirst to see if she pierces the ground, because she just can't pierce the heavens with her non drill head.

    This is absolutely sickening and only a single actual Miku image...This is...This is SH*T...

    Did they pay that hooker to dress up like Miku or something..?

    Whoever made that entire article and cover paid should be gutted like a trout by yandere Luka...

    Shock image sites are offensive to many people and are mostly left uncensored these days where our children can easily access this harmful content. We moms should be grateful about the swift response of the internet community in this case, thanks to which our children are now safe from viewing disturbing images like above.

    Parents like you is the reason the child becomes a scared pussy when he/she grows up. If I'll ever have a children, I'll show him/her the internet as whole. So he/she would not wear pink glasses thinking that world is a kind place. Children, from the young age should learn how to be strong and don't let anyone or anything wound them, mentally or physically.

    Boku here, the "brave soul" who spent his hard earned £3.50 on this.
    While I certainly don't mind these images getting about I don't think they really tell the whole tale through my phone camera. If there is interest (be it in positive or negative light) I may be able to get some scans done tomorrow. I suggest you keep some sharp instrument on standby to gauge your eyes thereafter, however.
    It's nice how they decided to interview some fans, but their question choices were.. limited. Not once did they ask about her musically but instead focused on her design or character - probably an attempt to draw out "OMG KAWAII DESU NE??" responses in an attempt to squeeze a laugh or two out, but actually the three they printed were quite level headed; particularly the 13 year old.

    Any way, i've decided to take it asunder to write some form of letter to Clash in regards to this. I don't plan to just flat out attack them for daring to insult Miku (however much I may wish to), but I would like to get across the point they failed to mention just about everything to do with her as an artist or even character - everything in this article was merely speculation and comparison to other fictitious characters and their writers. Theyre meant to be the "#1 UK Music Magazine" yet they failed quite spectacularly at basic journalism.
    Fucking media.

    Maybe a through leek anal stabbing will improve the next article about Miku and only use her anime pictures instead of some hookers...

    Hello and thanks for posting those in the first place (I gather you are a different person to the one who was kind enough to submit them)...

    By all means feel free to share the scans if you are so inclined, it may help justify the £3.50, if that is possible.

    I did not submit them, no. But that does not mean I am against them being here, so long as nobody else was going to take the credit for it. Well, what credit could be drawn from it at least. I was only directed here because someone on a certain Miku-related imageboard told me they were here, so I decided to see what the fuss was about. It certainly has stirred up quite a storm.
    To be quite honest I have no idea how to submit such images here anyway, so if I do get some scans whomever copied my images from the source and put them here is quite welcome to do the same again.

    Requests have been made that I burn the magazine in a hope to purify it and purge the world of such blasphemous images, but I think I may take a bit more diplomatic approach to this and - as I said - write a letter to hopefully clear some very misguided journalism. Nobody could have learnt anything from the article, they mention Miku by name then proceed to pussyfoot their way around anything to do with her after calling her a "slut". What do I expect back? Eh, maybe a "Whoops, sorry" at best, but if they did append their site page for this article (or better yet publish an apology in their next issue, although I won't hold my breath over that) then all the better.

    However the only way I see of contacting them appears to be through a small comment section; character limits undefined. I don't expect to make a long spiel, but if anyone here feels there is anything that I should mention then please feel free to say so. I'd like this to be more a collaborative and critically addressing complaint than a single fanboy rant, if possible.

    You can just email the pictures to us or post them on the forum if you'd rather.

    Regarding the article, I was examining the author's site, "Slutever," and the content of both the article and the rag in question rather swam into to focus. It could have been worse...

    Isn't it the point of vocaloids that they have virtual avatars with non-real identities, and their musical content is user-created and can be produced by anyone with access to the software? What the hell is the point of printing a cosplay of a vocaloid like miku, which is a real-person avatar (and a scary one at that), in a magazine, which by definition does not have audible content because it is made of paper? That's like me carving a sculpture into one side of a boulder, taking a picture of the side of the boulder that does not have a carving, and then showing that picture to someone and asking them to analyze my awesome scuplture.
