The entire Vocaloid phenomenon and pop~culture was totally new to me just a few months ago and now something quite remarkable has happened as just late last week the Anime Expo site announced the arrival of their very first “virtual” GOH to star at this year’s festivities which go on from July 1st to July 4th~. When you take a step back and realize just how immensely popular~* virtual pop~idols have become in Japan and also abroad with Miku’s fanbase covering a global realm just based on fan interaction including her too many to count videos and live performances shared worldwide it’s quite staggering to say the least!! Hatsune Miku’s very existence transcends the imaginations of anime visuals to J~pop to wota to okaku alike as she’s spawned an array of figures, CDs, DVD~concerts and manga which have simply grown into a life all their own =). My initial reaction and thoughts are posted here =).
Her concert scheduled for July 2nd also attests to her popularity by the very venue it’s being held at as the prominent Nokia Theater which has been home to some of the world’s largest entertainment events in its storied past will play host~. I think it’ll be amazing to witness all of her 3~D~cuteness live in person and I’m sure her reception will be virtually love~unanimous too! Just as a tiny example you can check out some of her merchandise and releases~* found @ Cdjapan and there are some very cute♥ T~shirts too (*´∀｀*) ♪！！
And on a somewhat sillier 😛 but very true note!, promoters and sponsors alike must be also thrilled with this announcement as unlike the likes of other “real~life” pop divas who regularly demand items and accommodations for themselves and their entourage of crew and back up dancers, etc., I’m pretty certain that the “virtual” star in Hatsune Miku will be just fine without the need of “x” amounts of a particular brand of bottled water probably only sold in Dubai or no brown M&M’s in her M&M’s and well….you get the picture~=). Diva’s lol gotta love them ＾ ＾。
Further details and other GOH appearing at this year’s Anime Expo as well as scheduling can be found @ their official site.
And you just knew somehow and in someway Miku would go ero* on us at some point, those naughty otaku =O……
