The popular NHK kids anime series Aware! Meisaku-kun has recently begun its second season, and with it comes a brand-new ending song entitled “名作！傑作！マスターピース！ (Meisaku! Kessaku! Masterpiece!).” What might entice VOCALOID fans of all ages to start or continue watching the series is the fact that its new theme song is sung by none other than Hatsune Miku!
Music for the song was written by kz, while the lyrics were handled by HachiojiP. It is, in fact, the first song that this pair of titans in the VOCALOID world have collaborated on ever since creating the very popular “Weekender Girl” together. If the creators of the anime were aiming to indoctrinate young children on the wonders of Miku’s voice, then they sure played their cards right!
Below are some official announcements for the song’s debut!

About Aware! Meisaku-kun
Aware! Meisaku-kun is an anime series from Pie in the Sky and began airing on April 8th, 2016, as part of the BITWORLD program on NHK Educational TV, also known as ETV. It follows the everyday (mis)adventures of sixth-grader, Meisaku Matsuda, and his friends at Ryugu Elementary School: Sweets, the peach-shaped hat-wearing kid; Musubi, the talking rice ball; Nocchio, the puppet (er, make that ROBOT) boy; and Bolt, the muscular turtle. Their school has a reputation for churning out well-known characters in famous fables, which Meisaku and his classmates seek to become as well.
Lyrics for “Meisaku! Kessaku! Masterpiece!” go as so:
