Introducing Kitano

This is a short animation of new 'idol' Kitano Kamui, who was created as a kind of virtual ambassador for Japan's Hokkaido region. Here's her Facebook page, which has a number of English entries and a fair smattering of images, so there's not a great language barrier there.

Kitano might one day become a Vocaloid, but for now has no voicebank, so there is no singing in this 90-second clip, just a background tune.

The design of Kitano's character was by no less than KEI (Miku's designer), and this model was created by a DeviantArt contributor who goes by the handle Its-a-Wii. I have no idea why. Anyway, the model can be downloaded via this page, and then animated in a program such as Miku Miku Dance (MMD) as was done here...
