American toy company Hasbro first launched the My Little Pony toy line in 1981. In 2019, the brand partnered with Kobobukiya’s “Bishoujo” series, which reimagines various comics, games, and film characters through a Japanese lens.
Hatsune Miku’s collaboration with My Little Pony is the fifth in the “Miku World Collab” project between Hatsune Miku and popular IPs. Miku has previously collaborated with the following characters: Over Action Rabbit, Pusheen the Cat, Esther Bunny, and Mamuang.
Further information will be announced through the Hatsune Miku and Kotobukiya Twitter accounts at a later date.
