I've been gone for a whole week and what did I miss while I was gone? Hatsune Miku's 2 day live concert. I've been anticipating this concert since mid 2011 and then suddenly forgot everything about it until now. I missed the livestream but luckily, I can still watch the replay anytime online.
The first day of the concert is Miku's Live Party 2012 (MIKUPA for short, MIKU + PA from PArty) and is produced by 5bp. Their Tokyo concert last year was a disappointment because they used a cheap looking black screen instead of the transparent one used by SEGA and their models are obviously inferior but they have a lot of songs and medleys. Those problems were kinda fixed during their next Sapporo concert from last year. Their models have improved and they used a transparent screen. The concert had less songs but the songs were longer.
This is my favorite song from the previous MIKUPA concert.
The second day of the concert is what I'm anticipating the most. It's the 39's Givings Day produced by SEGA. The number 39 is actually a pun and is pronounced as "SAN KYU" or "Thank You" in English. This makes the title actually Miku's Thanksgiving Day. SEGA bought this concert to the US with MIKUNOPOLIS in LOS ANGELES concert last year. Their concert looks a lot better and their models are superb but if you're playing Hatsune Miku Project DIVA for the PSP by SEGA, their choice of songs will sound repetitive at some point. Heck, their dance moves are even similar to their game counterpart.
This is my favorite song from the previous 39's Giving Day concert.
It's too bad that I can never watch any of these concerts live and have to be content with just watching the livestream or the BDs. Sucks to be me. Livestream tickets are still available until March 15 for $40 through Nico Nico Live. I've only seen the the first concert at this moment and it's the best 2 hours of my life!! I can't wait to see the second concert.
