Hatsune Miku’s Family Is Getting A Little Bigger With These Twins

By Eugene . February 20, 2014 . 4:01pm


The Vocaloid family gets new injections of Vocaloids every now and then. This time, it’s twins Anon and Kanon, both high school girls aged 18. While they share the same likes, including dancing and bread, it’s pretty clear that Anon (who’s the short haired lass) is the more innocent while Kanon always seems to have a spunky smirk on her face. That white/black imagery can’t be accidental.


The girls are part of the newest Vocaloid program that will be released by Yamaha, and have slightly different voice modulations that set them apart, yet capture a real sense of harmony. Anon’s innocence might stem from the fact she’s a bit of an air-head, but she really loves dance and really loves her sister as well. Kanon, though, is the older sister who’s begun to worry about what her ditzy sister’s future will be like.


You can have a listen of the sample track at their official site as well as some shots of the twins, and check out more of the illustrator Hakuri’s works on Pixiv here.


Anon.Kanon will be available from March 3rd as a download, and shortly thereafter as a physical boxed set.

    Len and Rin are gonna be so jelly. :V

  • xAtKx

    They certainly sound interesting to say the least. Rin still my favorite though. :x

  • neocatzon

    Now Len can make a harem of twins~

  • konsama

    Dem twins…Luka got not one, but two cute legal contenders now. >_<

    • WyattEpp

      Luka is already spoken for. ;)

  • Sentsuizan_93

    Oooh! Cute~

  • Shippoyasha

    Would be nice to see new Vocaloids like Ia in more games of their own (Vocaloid the Next Generation) and maybe they can have crossover games with the original crop. The two twin duos in a sing off will be pretty nice.

  • Audie Bakerson

    So, so many jokes you can make on her name (even though its not actually pronounced the same)…

  • MEIKO will forever be my number one…

  • Landale

    If they’re not Crypton Vocaloids, is it really all that accurate to say “Miku’s Family” is getting bigger? They sound pretty good though.

    • s07195

      I for one, group all the vocaloid characters as one extended family, or just living nearby or something.

      • Landale

        The thing is the actual relationships, for lack of better words, between the characters isn’t really set in stone most of the time. Even Rin and Len aren’t officially anything in regards to each other, the explanation on them flipping around to something else more than once.
        The only thing really set about most of them is what company made them, so the only real application of the word family that can be applied is simply in the sense of categorizing them.

  • DarkLight

    Time to call our new vocaloid waifu.Here I’ll start Kanon mai waifu!

    • konsama


      • DarkLight

        Yeah well now she’s mine!

  • Muddied_Waters

    They’re cute…but probably not going to change up my list of favorites. Looking forward to seeing what sorts of songs people will write for them though.

  • Kayriss Wins

    really loves her sister huh?

    • Twincest =^_^=

      • Kayriss Wins

        More like Wincest

  • Loving their designs, and they sound great too. Fangir…….. er I mean fanman scream =P

  • Slickyslacker

    Oh, all of the potential 4chan jokes about these two.

  • Eder García

    anon and kanon? 4chan will like this

    • Kai2591

      That’s what I thought too :)


    Miku, Len&Rin, luka, Kaito, and meiko are vocaloids from Crypton. They have nothing really to do with Yamaha’s vocaloids.

    • Göran Isacson

      Huh, I did not know that. I guess that means there can now be twin-battles between companies!

  • mojack411

    I can see the doujinshi now.

  • EinMugenTenshin

    Considering they are twins I guess the “innocent one” got implants. ^_^

  • Richard N

    18!? Allll riiight…

  • Genjo

    The bigger the family the better! XD

    • Arrngrim

      The bigger the better indeed…Anon…

  • Vash bane

    so how many of them now including these two?

    • Landale

      Counting just the characters rather than versions, and excluding fan made characters, I believe it’s up to 52. 55 counting in the other known but not yet released Vocaloids. I might be missing a couple, not sure.

      • Guest

        wow… I didn’t even know it was that many

  • DragKudo


  • Just Tim

    As long as we don’t hear a Mary Kate and Ashley joke at Anon and Kanon’s expense, all is right with the world. :3

  • Icedus

    Gentlemen, start your Pixiv(s).

  • Arrngrim

    Also, one has bigger boobs. :3

  • Twin girls are awesome, but Len is still my favorite.

  • DyLaN

    …..I honestly thought Anon was a guy in the preview image ^_^;

  • Theofratus ‘Geese’ Lester

    Super Sonico and Super Pochaco > Anon and Kanon. :p

    And I’m aware that Soni and Pocha are not twins…

  • Altumn

    Kind of wish their hair wasn’t the same color as the other twins.

    • Landale

      They’re not really the same color though. Rin and Len have yellow hair, Anon and Kanon have orange hair, Kanon’s hair also becoming kind of pink or purple toward the ends.

  • Ricardo C

    So which one is the yandere twin? I have my money on Anon.
