Oh! I know this one.
Okay so I think I'm qualified to aid, being that I've been doing MMD for about a year and a half now.
MMM has significantly better animation tools than MMD, but the layout takes a good while to figure out.
MMD is less advanced, but you can charge right into it and make a basic animation in minutes.

ANYWAYS, how to download???
Visit this website to get the MMD download.
However, on first open, you'll be greeted with an error screen.
Easy fix, download Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redist Package and DirectX 9.
HOWEVER, the DL for C++ was taken off of Microsoft, last I checked, so you'll need to use Wayback Machine(However the redirect in the link above seems to work fine)
DirectX 9 is hard to find too, but the link above has a DL mirror. Make sure those are installed, and if things are still acting up, I'm more than happy to help!
Happy animating!

it says dx3 something wasnt found though i downloaded the apps and stuff
Sorry for taking so long to respond
Yeah, that's directx. Make sure you have the earlier version installed and not the most recent, MMD does not work with the newer builds of it. Literally just download and install everything on that page and it'll eventually work.

Hi !!! So, MMM is way better and faster to animate with, but MMD has a better physics engine. Also, MMD has more plugins and has MME (miku miku effects) that allow you to set better textures and lighting making animations that look like they were made on blender, so I have both :D
Also, MMM is a bit less user friendly and has less tutorials so
