MIKU EXPO Satellite Events in Review stars

The concerts of MIKU EXPO 2014 were accompanied by what was more or less a Hatsune Miku village full of exhibits, merchandise, music, and lots of fun. Fans in Los Angeles and New York were treated to a unique experience. This year's MIKU EXPO is going to be a bit different. Being that the expo will stop at ten cities there won't be anything as grandiose as a village. In its place will be a variety of satellite events all featuring Miku. San Francisco happens to be the only location in the entire tour that has every event and I'll be giving you a quick rundown of each.

MIKU EXPO Concert in San Francisco stars

Hatsune Miku needs no introduction for most fans of Japanese culture. For those who aren't fans of Japanese culture, or are fans but have somehow been living under a rock for the last half a decade, she's a virtual voice given life by fans. Her teal twin ponytails and futuristic appearance hide within them a surprisingly versatile voice. On April 30, 2016, Hatsune Miku would make her northern California debut at San Francisco's Warfield theater.

MIKU EXPO returns to California stars

Hatsune Miku needs no introduction. She's played a few times in the United States as part of MIKU EXPO and Anime Expo's Mikunopolis and now she's back for her biggest tour yet. I skipped the previous tour in 2014 as it was in Los Angeles. This time San Francisco is included among the ten cities and fifteen shows that consist of the North America leg of MIKU EXPO.

Hatsune Miku: Project Diva 2nd Review

The vocaloid series is a voice synthesizer program by Yamaha that makes use of various virtual idols, who were created using actual voice actors. Miku Hatsune is arguably the most famous one, used for many songs on Japanese video site Nico Nico Douga, inspiring figures, new anime Black Rock Shooter, and a music rhythm game called Hatsune Miku: Project Diva. Hatsune Miku: Project Diva 2nd is the sequel and improves upon it in many ways.

[GSC] Hatsune Miku: Love Is War 1/8 PVC stars

Good Smile Company has teased us for almost a year now, originally with the unpainted version of the figure appearing at various figure shows in Japan, and finally preview photos have popped up on their blog. The figure is based on the popular Hatsune Miku song, Love is War by supercell

The figure will be released in 2 versions, the deluxe, "version DX," which will only be available exclusively from the Good Smile online shop for 14,000 yen, it will come with a larger tower platform complete with the megaphones found in the original art by Shirou Miwa. At almost half the price, the normal version will come with a smaller tower platform without the megaphones for 8,800 yen.

You have until September 26, 2011 to order either version, but for American shoppers, beware of the current exchange rate or you might find yourself paying more than you expected.

This has been on my buy list for some time since it was shown, which version interests you?

More photos inside that may help you decide.
