Super Sonico (すーぱーそに子) is a female character created in 2006 by Nitroplus. During 9 years, she stayed confined in a narrow niche of sexy/erotic figure collecting otaku audience but things are slowly changing and it seems like Super Sonico is now ready to be The Next Big Thing of the otaku world (the Hatsune Miku successor maybe?).
In the spawn of the enormous popularity gained by Vocaloid characters like Hatsune Miku, Nitroplus company decided to create its own virtual singing idol. To differentiate its newly born character from its rivals, Nitroplus deliberately made Super Sonico ULTRA sexy, to the verge of pure Hentai.
Because otakus are exclusive with their virtual girlfriends you know. And Super Sonico became this new beloved character.Sentai Filmworks plans to release the series on Blu-ray and DVD on May 26. “Super Sonico,” the mascot girl of the “Nitro Super Sonic” events held by Nitroplus, is credited with playing herself in the Japanese version and performing the opening theme song “Beat goes on!”
