Collaborations with meat buns, shampoo, and headphones apparently weren’t enough for the cyber diva.

A global icon for otaku culture, PiaPro’s voice synthesizer and virtual idol Hatsune Miku has been fascinating audiences with her digital voice, snappy fashion, and aqua blue hair for nearly a decade. She’s collaborated with pretty much everything: convenience store Family Mart, Domino’s Pizza, Lux brand hair products (commercial seen below), and games Persona 4: Dancing All Night and The iDOLM@STER 2, among many, many others.
This time, Miku has taken a bit more of a sexy approach to her collaboration with SuperGroupies. Pre-orders for Hatsune Miku-themed camisoles, bras, and panties began today on the anime/manga-themed apparel retailer’s website.
The camisole is 100% polyster, and is available in medium and large (Japanese clothing sizes). It will retail for 8,500 yen (about US$82).
For those looking for something with a little less fabric, the lingerie set contains a bra and a pair of panties in the diva’s signature colors. The bra is available in cup sizes A through F, while the panties are only available in medium size. For those wanting to wear the lingerie set, you’ll have to be willing to pay 8,800 yen (about US$86) to pre-order.
Those who purchase the camisole or lingerie set will get a bonus A5-size plastic folder featuring an illustration of Miku in the garments by illustrator En Morikura. The green folder comes with the lingerie set, while the pink folder will come bundled with the camisole.
These items are a SuperGroupies exclusive, and pre-orders will be held at the site until November 6, 2016. Orders are scheduled to arrive in the hands of those who ordered sometime in mid-March 2017.
While Hatsune Miku herself has never had her own anime, multiple anime based on songs she’s sung have. One of the most famous–Black Rock Shooter–was adapted into both an original video anime (OVA) volume and a television anime series. The series was streamed on Niconico with English subtitles during its broadcast. The anime is available with English subtitles on DVD and Blu-ray in the United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand.
