Nayutan Seijin - Esper Esper (ft. Hatsune Miku) - Cover Art
Project VOLTAGE, the special art and music collaboration project between Pokémon and the popular Volcaloid character Hatsune Miku releases its next song today with the premiere of Esper Esper (ft. Hatsune Miku) (エスパーエスパー (ft.初音ミク)) by Nayutan Seijin (ナユタン星人). The music video is set to premiere on Nayutan Seijin's official YouTube channel today, Friday March 1st, at 6:30pm (JST) / 9:30am (UTC) / 1:30am (PST). This will be followed up on Sunday March 3rd with an as yet untitled song from Kairiki Bear (かいりきベア).

List of participating Vocaloid producers in this current batch
Nayutan Seijin (ナユタン星人), also known as NayutalieN, made their debut as a Vocaloid producer in 2015 with Andromeda Andromeda. Best known for the song Alien Alien, this producer has released many space and science themed songs. The Andromedako character which features in many of their music videos was adapted to a manga series Medako-san's Love Invasion Plan (メダ子さんの恋スル侵略計画, Medako-san no Koisuru Shinryaku Keikaku), which was published in Shonen Magazine Pocket from September 2016 to October 2017. Outside of Vocaloid, they have produced songs for several anime and games, including Turing Love feat.Sou (under the name of “Nayuta Seiji”), the ending theme for "Science Fell in Love, So I Tried to Prove it", and the opening theme for Yokai Watch 4++.

The song from Kairiki Bear (かいりきベア) will premiere just two days later on Sunday March 3rd. A guitarist and songwriter who made their debut as a Vocaloid producer in 2011, Kairiki Bear's name was inspired by the enemy of the same name that appears in the popular Nintendo game Earthbound. Best known for songs such as Alkali Underachiever (アルカリレットウセイ, Alkali Rettousei) and Darling Dance (ダーリンダンス, Daarin Dansu), this Project VOLTAGE song is only the third Vocaloid song from Kairiki Bear this year, with the producer having semi-retired from active Vocaloid work in late 2022 due to demotivation.

The final planned song from this project will release late next week, on Saturday March 9th. The Vocaloid producer contributing this song has not yet been announced.

Project VOLTAGE's first sub-project, "18 Types of Hatsune Miku and Partner Pokémon Illustrations and Settings" (18タイプの初音ミク&相棒ポケモンのイラスト・設定資料) featured a set of 18 artworks from 6 separate artists based on the theme of "What if Hatsune Miku was an XX-type Pokémon Trainer". This project completed on September 28th, 2023, with the posting of the Dragon-type Hatsune Miku with her partner Pokémon Miraidon, however the past months have seen an additional range of additional bonus illustrations also being released. All illustrations released by the project to date can be found catalogued on Bulbapedia.
