'''Sakine Meiko''' ('''咲音メイコ'''; ''Meiko Sakine'') is an officially recognized derivative of [[Meiko]]. Her name of Sakine 咲音, literally means "Blooming Sound" and has the same pronunciation as 先音, "Preceding Sound," i.e., she precedes Hatsune Miku. Her family name is sometimes shared among her other fanmade "siblings", such as [[w:c:fanloid:Meito|Meito]] in particular.
The term "[[Derivative]]" is used here to describe a fanmade Vocaloid character that is based on an already existing character.
She was conceived through the efforts of Producers working with [[Meiko]]'s voice, When many producers wondered if MEIKO was an older-sounding vocal, or younger-sounding vocal. (They quickly set on [[KAITO]]'s voice since he sounded older.) Because of this, Meiko had become forgotten because of [[Hatsune Miku]]'s popularity, leaving her behind. Meiko in particular did not have the younger sounding voice of the released ''VOCALOID2'' voicebanks released at the time and therefore was not as appealing as they were to the Vocaloid Otaku based fandom. Meiko Sakine was established by [[Nanameue-P]] to push the limits of the ''Vocaloid'' software to make Meiko sound younger. Her official setting is "the Meiko who came into the music trend in the age of 16" (i.e., she is not a younger Meiko variation but Meiko when she was young) and Nanameue-P is "the producer who rediscovered Meiko in her youth". She was later made famous by the PV "Honey" featuring her and other derivatives such as [[Hachune Miku]], [[Haku Yowane]] and [[Neru Akita]], as well as the [[UTAU]] Teto Kasane alongside official Crypton Vocaloids.
Sakine Meiko is one of the Vocaloid derivatives that became officially recognized by Crypton Future Media, the publisher of the Character Vocal Series for ''VOCALOID2''. The other derivatives bearing this distinction are [[Miku Hachune]], [[Neru Akita]], [[Haku Yowane]], and [[Tako Luka]].
Official licensed Sakine Meiko figurines have been produced, such as Nendoroid Puchi and a scale model.
===Video Games===
In [[w:c:vocaloid:Project Diva|Project Diva]] (PD), Sakine Meiko is an available character in the PSP game, Hatsune Miku ~Project Diva~ and again as a playable character in its sequels. If the player does not choose her for a long time, she will get angry.

*[ Examples of Configurations at the Fanloid wikia]
Unfortunately, [[Nanameue-P]] has not disclosed the voice configuration so far, though theoretically, she carries a younger voice (and perhaps higher-pitched voice as well) of Meiko.
