Hatsune Miku: Live Concert in Tokyo 2012 (Part 2)


While it was somehow disappointing that the songs were almost unchanged from her previous two thanksgiving concerts, the improvements and slight changes they made to the music and the overall performance made this event a must watch for every Vocaloid fan.  

Tell Your World feat. Hatsune Miku
Po Pi Po (Vegetable Juice) feat. Hatsune Miku
Puzzle feat. Hatsune Miku
Kodoku no Hate (The End of Solitude) feat. Kagamine Rin
Migikata no Chou (Butterfly on Your Right Shoulder) feat. Kagamine Len
Just Be Friends feat. Megurine Luka
Promise feat. Kagamine Rin and Hatsune Miku
World’s End Dancehall feat. Hatsune Miku and Megurine Luka
The new costumes were quite fascinating. I've only seen the video once but the improvements I saw from watching the concert were:

Ura-Omote Lovers (Two-Faced Lovers) feat. Hatsune Miku
The dance moves she performed during this song is different compared to her previous concerts. She now uses her moves from the videogame, Hatsune Miku Project DIVA Extend (PSP). I'm not sure about the length of the song but I think they used the extended version as well since the song kinda felt longer. Her new dance steps were adorable and I love it a lot!

Migikata no Chou (Butterfly on Your Right Shoulder) feat. Kagamine Len
His previous performances were shared with his twin sister, Rin, but now he does this song solo. I'm kinda sad to not see the twins together since I loved their mirrored dance performance but I guess Len deserves the spotlight at least once in this event. His moves were also taken from the videogame, Hatsune Miku Project DIVA 2nd (PSP).

Magnet feat. Hatsune Miku and Megurine Luka
They added bloody saxophones to the friggin music!! Everyone knows how sexy the music sax creates. So, yeah! Miku and Luka was singing on stage about their forbidden love with each other, then BOOM! Saxophone solo!! It kinda felt like watching musical porn or something, eargasms everywhere. Quite an upgrade I must say.

Kodoku no Hate (The End of Solitude) feat. Kagamine Rin
Rin performs this song with a guitar. What's so good about this is that she's not just banging on the guitar pretending to play it while singing, she actually looks like she's playing something. A nice touch added by SEGA that makes the concert feel more LIVE despite the fact that the singer's actions were all pre-rendered and their voice were pre-recorded.

Puzzle feat. Hatsune Miku
Similar to the previous entry, Miku performs this song with a guitar and plays them along as she sings. I really liked this song of hers and with the added guitar plus the extended music really made it feel different. They must've motion captured someone playing the guitar to make it look this realistic. I'm not a guitar expert but I think her guitar is a Fender Stratocaster. Just compare it to the image below.

Goddamn it! I want this guitar now!
Here's a video of her 39's Giving Day concert from 2010. This is the part were she introduces the band that plays with her on stage. They are named The 39's (pronounced as The Thanks) and is composed of Kuroda Akidoshi (Guitar), Hanaka Shingo (Bass), Okina Shin (Drums), Abe Jun (Keyboards), and lastly Hatsune Miku (Vocals).

What, they play guitar? Cool!
Looks like really cool a guitar, but it doesn't have any humbuckers on it so it won't do for really "heavy" music. ):

Those girls are just so cute, I want to look like then! My hubby has a classic late 60's baby blue strat that he got when he was about six years old. He bought it the year it was made. And yes, he's that old, but the man still has chops.

It's a strange thing to be into, but hey if that's what you want. Go Krieger.

it is a cool looking guitar

serenity said...

The setlist was pretty conservative, but I really loved the brass/woodwind/strings and how much more awesome they made the songs sound. I'd say it was a good finish to the 39 series.

Pat Hatt said...

One great looking guitar and all of the girls look great, I guess that is just their fate.

This is something my brother would kill for to attend.

Kingmush said...

I know some people who would love to be there.

Bart said...

so do ppl dress up like anime ppl?

Lord Phrozen said...

@Bart
What? NO!! They are called virtual divas because they have no physical form. If you pay much attention to the background, you'll see lights behind them all the time. That's because they are projected to a transparent glass to make them appear like they are on stage. They aren't real people, just the band that plays the instruments.

I still like the virtual look
