Too Poor For Miku Expo EditionPrevious Thread: >>20358796 #General pastebin: https://pastebin.com/BsD5G6Ey>Downloads: mikudb.moe or 9tensu.com or dojin.co>References: vocadb.net>MikuDB backlog: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1OIYqyqq4Bv22WtEj5g-a3rCQIPjGKkkTB7phAvidddE/edit#gid=0Dreamy Vocals paste: https://pastebin.com/tcEZsZc4
Expo is over, it's officially Christmas time
>>20377539Time to spend more money on merch as presents to myself
>Maximum size bag: A4It's going to be Miku Expo 2016 all over again, prepare for chaos
>>20377878I'm not taking a bag at all, want to fight about it?
Does anyone know what the "exhibition" from 1 - 5:30 involves?
>>20378008They're operating a bag check, and with everyone's bag being too big they're going to get into arguments with people who can't bring their bag in. Even if you don't have a bag you'll get caught in the delays>>20378041I think the Central area is going to house all the non-concert stuff that Cologne and Paris had, so the table where you can put your figures or whatever on and take a photo of, the world map thing and maybe the Persona Dancing demo that Cologne had for some reason
tfw too depressed and too autistic to go to expos and mirais
>>20378376They're basically the only thing left at this point anon
Already 2 threads I'm skipping. I guess this one is the 3rd one?
I've been trying to desensitise myself by listening to Glass Wall but I think I'm still gonna cry when she sings it tomorrow ;_;
>>20378376I went to the expo and now I'm just more depressed.Not because it ended. But I don't know why either.
>>20378376I'm depressed and autistic and I'm still going, assuming I don't pussy out at the last minute.You can do it, anon!
>>20378469My depression is real, and clinically tested. I despise humans and I can’t stand anyone even me. How the fuck do I overcome this to go?
>>20378456>I'm still gonna cryCome on man, it's not THAT bad.
>>20378521You might just not enjoy the experience if you don't want anyone around you.The DVDs are quite amazing and I highly recommend spending nights watching them alone. If you like being calm and paying attention to the music and little details, they are a superior experience to the show itself.
>>20378456I thought I would get very emotional during glass wall, too. But it's not really possible in a huge crowd. Learn the lyrics well though. You will want to sing along, even if now you are thinking you might not want to.
>>20378595Im not into that. I unironically lift everyday to convert some of my self-hated into improvement.
>>20378464Same for me. I didn’t think post-concert depression was real, but it is.
>>20378521I have similar issues but I can deal with people as long as I have my earphones and music to block out the white noise of people. I can manage concerts because of the same principle I think.
The cure is to go to another concert or go to a weeb concert. Singing along to Japari Park was fun
>>20378627I think it's because I felt free for a little while.I never thought I would talk to anyone about Vocaloid, something so important to me, even if briefly. All these people who didn't seem to understand, or be bothered by, social norms. I have something in common with these crazies and I enjoyed being around them, even if most did not seem interested in knowing anything about me. Somehow, I hope similar circumstances brought as where we are. Or so I like to imagine.
>>20378813Or maybe I was relieved to witness that I am not alone in this suicidal free fall. It's not just me who chose to idolize these fictional turquoise twintails in hopes that something, anything is revealed to me one day.
>>20377409Has anyone leaked the setlist for london yet?I just wanna know if i'll be able to go apeshit to Luka Luka Night Fever.
>>20378890Nobody knew the lost for Paris and Cologne before the concert either
Chose your princess.Yes I’m including KAITO and Len.
>>20378945Len and rin holding eachothers hands
>>20378945He is the king
When will the exact Magical Mirai dates be released? I just need an estimate to book my flight in time. Miku Expo was so fun, now everything after it seems like torture.
>>20378980Probably along the lottery entries which start April-May.Let me tell you that the Magical Mirai setlist is generally a lot less exciting though
>>20378890Luka Luka Night Fever was a wildcard, now that it's been played in Cologne it's guaranteed not to play in London
>>20378890I reckon we'll get at least one other English song I'm really hoping it's Ten Thousand Stars
>>20379614As the final leg of the first European tour Sharing the World would be appropriate
Where can one buy a cheap chemical glow stick in London tomorrow?(Asking for a friend)
Please recommend me a cute Rin thing to buy that is not the Toni figurine because I already have that one.I will buy it too, I swear.
>>20379948sorry forgot image
>>20379948Buy anything Len, he’s like a cuter Rin
>>20379969NO! NEVER.But have this twins image as a friendly gesture.
>>20379872Had a quick look and literally couldn't find a clear answer on this. You might have to kill yourself anon
damn, meiko looks like THAT!?
FIST TO THE BEAT
>>20377570I want Len to be my christmas gift!
>>20378945I can't choose between Luka, Rin and Len
>>20380137Just like the odd Meiko song that sounds really good it seems there's also the odd Meiko art that looks really good
>>20379948all of them
>>20380483what is this Rin-Chan now! book?Also any t-shirts, hoodies or such you could recommend? I found nothing of value when I searched earlier.
>>20380497it's a collection of short (1-2 pages at most) stories about Rin. it's cute stuff but by no means high brow literature, like at all. still, it's fun enough and a good buy if you want something to sit back and relax with.as for clothing, I can't help you out there, since I haven't purchased any aside from a hat at a con a few months back
>>20380722In English or jap?
>>20380733the books in my pic are the official english release
>>20380483Gib upskirt of the one with leggins
>>20380409Don't we all
>>20379872>About glow sticks>A limited quantity of official, concert-approved glow sticks with 6 changeable colors are up for pre-order here . The official glow sticks will also be on sale at each concert venue while supplies last.>Because they may interfere with the concert performance, please DO NOT bring your own LED lights, flashlights, or any battery-powered glow sticks other than tour-approved official glow sticks and glow sticks from past official Hatsune Miku concerts.>Only chemical glow sticks under 15 cm which are no brighter than official glow sticks are permitted.>There will not be any free chemical glow stick giveaways at these concerts.
>>20379958Wow! So cute!
What is this Pre Opening Merch?
>>20382062It's just an opportunity to buy the concert merch before the concert itself opens and there's a riot
>>20382062Remember to buy your 30 GBP glow stick and 35 GBP t-shirt good goy
Was the merch cash only in paris/cologne or could you pay by card?
>>20380137Whoa, hang on, wait a minute, stop the clock, time outIs Meiko... actually kinda sexy?
>>20382099lol dude that's pretty cheap for a tee. I've spent nearly double that on shirts in Tokyo
>>20382552The t-shirt design for the expo isn't even that cute tbdesu, it's too edgy.
>>20382493I think I saw someone pay by card in Cologne
>>20382685I don't think I looked at any of the Euro stuff. Couldn't be worse than the last run of America shit. First ever event I attended where I didn't even buy anything. All I have is the VIP bags.
>>20382552Those full graphic t shirts are 6k yen after allQueued at 12:30 in vip and the queue already stretched to the end of the barriers at this time
Lol imagine queuing to spend you money instead of just going to the fucking arcade whilst you wait for the actual show to start.Fuckin gamelets.
Not long now ladsIs there much point turning up before about 7 though? I don't want to just mill around for 2 hours
>>20382966If there's assigned seats, then no.If it's standing room only, then also no because you already fucked up.
>>20382966There's about 50 people in the vip queue to enter at 4.30 atm, the non vip queue starts after they enter I think.
What's the point of turning up before entry anyway.Universally, doors to the actual concert hall dont open till like, 30 mins before the performance.
These are the people we can expect to rub shoulders with this evening
>>20383157There are no numbered seats and it's a big open area. The earlier you arrive and the closest you will be of miku. Also there will be less penlights and cameras in front of you.
>>20383157There's no assigned seats, it's first come first serve for the front row hence queueing mega early
>"Exhibition"I knew it will be much smaller than MM, but this is literally nothing.Well, I look forward to the show.
My train still isn't even in zone 6. Wish me luck anons.
What secret handshake can we use to recognise each other in the queue?
Have some fun with MikuSo popular she sold out!
>>20383550If we had a weekend concert in Cologne, we would have sold out too. I hope the merch sells out completely too! I am desperate for another Miku concert right now.
>>20383490Isn't it just looking to see if they're a phoneposter with clover?Also, LMAOing at the retards that are stood in the queue since it just started raining.-Posted from my AirBNB
>>20383571>not being at the front so you can lick Miku's holographic thighsWeak
Anyone else in front?
Who general queue here? Also got my glowstick and t-shirt.
In merch line
Literally stuck behind some neckbeard with his ass hanging out
>1st floor VIP
>>20383752Say hi to the cute Rin to your left
>>20383765>talking to girls
Is the colored conductor on the gallery one of you?
>>20383778Who? There's a fat guy who reeks of BO in front of me waving his two sticks
>>20383780Only one guy waving two sticks so I'm guessing that's him
>>20383789Probably, there a pair right in the middle who has glow sticks but this guy is next to a pillar
>>20383852Don't tempt me.
>>20383568We actually did almost a month before the concert, so they expanded the seats through a whole block in the middle(and moved everyone with seats after it even furter back) that unfortunately stayed almost empty.
>>20383892Until everyone gets their phone out to record. One of the reasons I didn't aim for vip front row
Thug life for Miku
>>20383973I can smell the atmosphere from over here
>>20383812Isn't he cold?
>>20384061He's sweating gallons
dicks out for miku
>>20384065I'm so sorry.
Why are London Miku fans so fugly? At least compared to other pictures from overseas concerts, there was one or two average looking people.
>>20383973Woah, just out of shot, based.
Reminder that this is the last concert. You better party really hard.
>>20384078Lots of Americans seem to have come to this one
>>20384100America sent their fattest weebs and London kept their ugliest weebs. Gross.
There are hot jpsies in your area! Click now to chat with them!
>>20384078Western weebs are in general ugly
Who /sitting squad/
This London expo looks miserable compared to the LA one
>>20384149It's not even started yet
The arena is a lot smaller than Magical Mirai at least so youre closer to Miku. The downside is that everyone uses phones during the concert so you can't see shit anyways
>>20384211I hate phonecording but they refuse to do commercial releases so whatcha gonna do
What's the point in recording anyway. It will look and sound like shit. Maybe one song or something, but it's not like anyone is willing to watch 2h of shaking, unintelligible video.
>>20384240Can't wait to watch that tinny ass blurry video!
>>20384240There is none. They'll spend their precious concert time looking at their phone screen for a shit quality video that won't do the live experience any justice and will also annoy the other concert goers with it. I wish Miku Expo would have had stricter rules for phones.
>>20384266Surprised me they allow it here, it was forbidden on MM.
>>20384266There's no way you could enforce it. What are you going to do it you're a security guard and you see some chick recording with her cell phone right in the middle of a thousand guys all standing shoulder to shoulder? They'd have to move to assigned seating like mm
I wonder if they will do emotional speech like on the last MM show.I don't know if my heart can take it, it was hard last time.
>>20384278Even if they told people not to they'd do it anyways, just one of the inevitable you'd have to accept with western concerts
will there ever be a miku concert not on the coasts in the us?
>>20384300Who wants to perform on flyover land?
>>2038428810th anniversary ending was a one time thing. You can't do it every concert or it cheapens it. It's not special if it becomes a gimmick.
>>20384447I mean if you insist...
>>20384447no thankstoo old
>>20384447Meiko did nothing wrong and deserves the world
>>20384655why's the left one looking lewdly at it
>>20384820cuz' he's a huge faguette
>>20384820at the sandwich?
Len x Len is good and all, but but about Len x Rin (male)?
Literally no one chanting upstairs except me during Melt mothafuckers. I couldn't hear from up there but was there even any chanting in the arena
>>20385013There was a group of Japanese behind me going hardcore with the chanting and dancing, sorry anon
I cried during melt
>>20384969I mean Len also looks delicious so it could be either way>>20384979Rinto and Lenka are shit, selfcest Len or selfcest Rin are much better. If you meant Len x futa Rin though that's acceptable.
>>20385023It's really amazing that they come out for the concerts, no matter where it happens>>20385023Seeing this really gets me emotional again, I wanna be there
>"This is the final song!">does 3 more songs after
>>20385143Have you literally never been to a concert before?
>>20385037So did I, anon. During glass wall too...
>>20385013Basically every song in my section (like, front 1/3) had people going hai and shit.Sounds like ppl up top are gay desu.Everyone that had the call book or knew how to pick up on them was doing calls as well.
Shoutouts to the dude next to me that cried when Intense Voice dropped.
>>20385227>Sounds like ppl up top are gay desu....are you saying gay people are less gay?
Did they play any new songs we haven't head in the previous expos?
The setlist was fire and projection was pretty good (despite being narrow) but sound was pretty shit compared to mirai.Also all the merch sold out, rip my jacket dreams.
Who else got a ribbon from the cannons?
So when's the /jp/ post miku pub crawl?
>>20385293Expo 2019 is Hong kong and Taiwan
>>20385285I got like 10, also saw some nip going around and picking them all up
>>20385289I imagine everyone is too tired (i know i am)
>>20385311It's nice they finally realise how many fans they have all over the world. Maybe they'll visit US or EU after.
>>20385311Miku EXPO Arabia could fix everything that is wrong in this world
Whoever managed to buy the jacket - at what time you arrived?
>>20385329Or South America... Please...
They played Two-Faced Lovers? You lucky fuckers.
>>20385384You're goddamn right they did.
>>20385330Itll be N.Korea and Iran
laughing at the manlets on twitter bitching about tall people blocking the view.Like, have these people just never been to concerts before?
>>20385576Just have to strategically position yourself behind a group of shorties and great view is guarranteed. Not that hard.Plus there are two reprojections.
How do you deal with post-concert depression? I'm sitting here watching old mirais.
>>20383973She nearly fell on my shoes, I'm just out of shot
>>20385644You never deal with it, you just live with it until the next concert.
>>20385013I was in vip standing and couldn't hear miku over the crowd sometimes
>>20385341I could've bought it and I had queued up at 12:30 for vip queue into merch
I just got home in the expo! Who else had a lovely time and only maybe cried a fair bit? While the VIP package was fucking garbage, being so close was absolutely WORTH.
Who the hell brings a gopro on a telescopic stick to film a concertjesus christat least he moved at some point so he wasn't directly in my line of sight but seriously goddamn
>>20385793What do you get in VIP?
>>20385341Whats the jacket look like?
Anyone else see the fucking abomination with its pronouns pinned to its shirt? Or the tard with the Miku wig?I'm a weirdo, but going to the Expo has made me feel like the normiest of normalfags.
>>20385801A badge of Miku's face from that winter artwork on it, a notebook... Things, a bracelet, and a sorta guest book as well as a lanyard. Not horrible, but only just about standard. 4/10.
Miku speaking in english was EXTREMELY CUTE
>>20385803This bad boy>>20385817Better than mirai accommodation plan
>>20385457Was I literally the only one coming from Italy?
>>20385793Felt a bit emotional when Tell Your World came on since its my favourite song and also kind of symbolises what Miku wasVIP gallery had a great picture of miku but if you didn't arrive early enough to get a 1st or 2nd row seat you were kind of fucked. Some parent - child pair behind me were having an argument with the daughter saying she wanted to go home since she couldn't see anything
>>20385803we got it, but arrived around 13:00 already to grab merch and leave
>>20385863It's made from polyester, someone had posted a picture showing how it was pilling from just wearing a rucksack which seems too fragile for me
>>20385918yeah it's not the best quality but manageable
>>20385812You see all short of shits>Fat whales with literally overhanging stomachs>Japanese people who look like they're 50 years old and decked in full otaku gear>So many people with teeth like horse>People who can't hold a rhythm
>>20385289sorry you missed it
>>20385941It's a concert not a fashion show. Give those people a break.
>>20385918Hmmm. That's a shame. I just like this more subtle design.
>>20385941Don't forget the fat guy with a beard dressed up as Len!
>>20385952It's not their fashion but their physical appearance, they were so ugly it was shocking. I've been to other conventions and they never had such a high proportion of ugly people
>>20385999damn that guy is my hero
I am so glad I went to Miku's concert. I didn't keep up with all the new songs nowadays and only really knew the classics so I was really surprised to hear a couple of new good songs for the first time there. Particularly Ghost Rule. Now I can't stop listening to it.
>>20385941That's what you get for going to the London concert. Paris or Cologne would have been better. Also had better song lists if you ask me.
>>20386019Same. Never felt more revolt than this concert.
>>20385941>50+ year olds in otaku armorI see absolutely nothing wrong with that.>can't hold a rhythmit doesn't help to be ignorant of their perspective.
>>20385918The fuck did he do to it? I wore it with a rucksack and a totebag for the whole time including the concert and a 9 hour ride home and it looks just like before.
>>20386165>MIKU EXPO's 5th anniversary begins in Taiwan and Hong Kong!>beginsOther destinations confirmed, get hype
The concert was great. But little unfulfilling. The sound was pretty bad.I also wish I had someone else to share the experience with me IRL.
Anyone has proper London tracklist?
>>20386930Taiwan/HK, USA/Mexico, Europe, Japan (Mirai)
>>20387376As much as I'd love it, they wouldn't get any break this way. Taiwan/HK start in summer and Mirai will most likely be in August or September.
Hot off the press.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ELpud0A5nRo
Speaking of Anniversaries.Gumi's 10th is 7 months away. Has anything been announced?
>>20387160>The sound was pretty bad.I'm surprised how few people mentioned poor sound quality. Compared to mirai it was night and day.
>>20387764Lot of people haven't been to Mirai
>>20388013>>20387764I guess I should plan trip to Japan for next year.
Now as the concerts ended, I really feel empty inside.I just want to be back at home and cuddle with her already.
>>20388098I've been like that since the paris concert i non stop play different miku live and music on youtube. Thankfully i have my miku plushie.
>>20388098Start planning for the next one
>>20388121Fortunately I have a plushie with me too.But damn, you never appreciate how great sleeping with a daki is until you get a night or two without her.
>>20388022The Magical Mirai setlist is generally worse than Miku Expo and you're mor elikely to be seated further away unless youre lucky or pay for the accommodation plan to get the SSS tickets , but everything is better.
>>20388098>>20388121>>20388157I feel like shit today, but listening to vocaloid songs makes me feel much better. Even without a plushie. What's the magical thing about vocaloids?
>>20388192They give u the illusion that anime, and by extension anime is real.
>>20388175Foreigners actually get the best seats at Mirai. There's a section right in the center towards the front referred to as the "gaijin block" where all the overseas tickets sit.
>>20388206>"gaijin block"aka the ghetto
>>20388175Accommodation plan doesn't offer SSS tickets. I had B1 seat last mirai and it was SS. That said it was probably one of the best seats out there.>>20388254Complete bs. Those are best positioned seats.
Wait, is there no moshpit at mirai?
>>20388281No. Everyone is standing at their spot like a civilised human being.
>>20388281>>20388295It's true that there is no standing pit, but people do move away from their designated seats. Especially at the sides of front rows, people were standing in the pathways between sectors.
How long till the next LA expo? I'll even take the same setlist I don't mind
>>20388333Tbh everyone was standing anyway. All seats do is space people out a little, leave you a place to put your shit and stop you from worrying about trying to get a better spot all the time. Also leaves lanes between sectors in case someone gets unwell and need evacuating.I prefer it to standing pit for sure.
>>20388467Do I see that right? Only Cologne got Luka Luka Night Fever? I'm feeling very lucky right now
Im surprised these venues arn't playing Decade. The song is great
Good morning anons, I just got out of bed, and after last night's expo, I'm really fucking exhausted, and my throat really aches. What are some good remedies?
>>20388824>>20388727>>20388722>>20388718someone upload this on nyaa already
>>20388917Miku. More Miku can solve everything.
>>20388950But anon, I've already listened to Alien Alien at least 10 times this morning.
>>20389026Maybe give the other loids a chance
>>20389026How many times did you masturbate to lewd Miku today?
>>20389026Her dance for that was brilliant
>>20389059It genuinely was. I was in the VIP Standing section and recorded all of it, it's such a lovely song.>>20389099None, Miku is pure, and not for sin.>>20389059Maybe when Kaito gets more than one song at any expo ever.
All right, lets do thisWho's going to Taiwan?
>>20389059Why does Miku have lewds of herself framed in her room?
>>20389215If you were this famous, would you not?
>>20389274If I were a pretty girl I would.
>>20389168>None, Miku is pure, and not for sinNope. She is lewd girl who imagines herself getting raped or wearing vibrator while singing live.
>>20389374You're assuming that she only imagines that?
>>20389374Please do not say this about her. She worked very hard over this past week to make sure everyone had a lovely time at her show, and is no doubt very exhausted. Be respectful.
>>20389386She is probably more exhausted from long masturbation session after the live. She must have been soping wet after the last song.
>>20389417Anon, I will not tolerate these sinful ideas, she is CUTE, and not LEWD.
>>20389438She is cute and lewd which is also cute.
>>20389438>>20389450She is CUTE add LEWD. She imagines being dressed in cute lingerie right before long night of intense lovemaking.
>>20389462>>20389466Both of you are incorrect!!
So is there any quality christmas Miku art out there? I'm struggling to find some.
>>20389466She doesn't have to imagine anything.We have passionate, gentle lovemaking sessions every day.
>>20388917Come to Namco Funscape and play 2hu songs on DDR
>>20389470How can you say she's not lewd when she's holding that huge dildo?
I heard it’s not uncommon for idols to have sexual fantasies with their fans, specially while performing. It’s a way to feed their egos.But regardless of that, most of them are pure and will never do such things irl.
I was hesitant, but I’m glad I made history with you fuckers. My life is not going to be the same now that I meet Miku!
>>20388917Going to the arcade and playing vocaloid songs on rhythm games.
>>20388718>>20388722Wait, london had blu-rays?Where the fuck do i cop?
>>20389888Lol dude does that look like a BD to you? It was steamed.
I see Miku also went to visit the London Eye.
>>20388206I got the Gaijin S seats and it was located on the left side further back than any of the venues at Paris, Cologne and London were. The Gaijin SSS seats might be better but the gaijin block for S seats is pretty shit
>>20389747I wish there'd be official figures or other merchandise than just stickers of the Expo costumes. They are too cute.
The more I go to live events the more I appreciate the twins. Their segments always has so much drive, the crowd explodes.And this time the song selection was excellent. Roki + Remote Control + Bring It Own = so much energy.
>>20390431I guess two characters make for more interesting choreography. Sadly there was no Miku x Luka song.
>>20390498Paris had World End Dancehall
>>20390535Fuck the frogeaters.
>>20390535Godamm lucky croissaunts
How should I take the glowstick to plane? Ryanair.Should I take out the batteries? Don't want airport security to think it is explosive device.
>>20390711I put it in my hand luggage bag and it went through the scanner without any issues (heathrow airport).
>>20390711Take the batteries out just in case.
How come 2019 has such cute Miku, while 2018 was such meh?
>>20390774They were clearly going for a more "european" look with her design. While eastern countries can have usual artstyle.
>>20390808Who ever thinks that's a good idea? We like Miku because she is in Asian style.
>>20390822At least her event-specific costume had high heels. And I'm happy they only used her more recent model twice, while the rest of the songs kept old one. Its just so much better looking.
>>20390774The Asian ones always look cute
>>20390535>>20390551>>20390688It's fair, Paris had World End Dancehall, Cologne had Luka Luka Nightfever and London had the The Disappearance of Hatsune Miku.
>Bring it On releases right after LA expoNow I have to go next year again to see it
Even Mikufags are marrying, why are you not?
>>203907742018 was cute
Who else shit their pants at this moment?Caught me off guard so hard.
>>20391408But anon, I'm already married
>>20391408that girl looks underage
>>20391474Same, that was amazing. This and the confetti were surprising and effective
>>20391474I knew what was coming from past concerts. Still, had goosebumps.
Who else is F5ing Nyaa for the Paris recording?
>>20389915Are there any VODs of the stream?
>>20391658I'm downloading it from Jpopsuki.
>>20391803Upload it to Nyaa ASAP please
>>20387160I was in Cologne, not London, but I share your feelings about unfulfillment and sound.I was sitting in the rear and the sound was terrible and the projection way too far away from me. And people told me "don't let this disappoint you, try again, from a closer place".But now I'm thinking about it. If I get a spot near the screen, I will be surrounded by a bunch of people who will be cheering in unison (don't get me wrong, I was cheering myself), but these guys will do all the coordinated "oooowoh, hao!, oooowoh, hao!" on every fucking song which sounds nothing like "ooowoh hao!". So in the end I won't be able to enjoy that either. I just want Miku.Anyway, luckily I met an online acquaintance there (although we'd never talked much before). It was nice to mingle for a couple of hours, even though nobody wanted to talk to me much.So overall, I'm feeling better about it now that a few days have passed. I feel like contributing more to Vocaloid related things,but I think I will never go to a live show again.
Bros... I wanna marry Rin..... fuck.Future Rin, present Rin, past Rin, it doesn't matter to me. I love her so much, bros...
>>20391918There is plenty to dislike about live shows, especially if its your first experience with them. Have you seen any Mirai recordings? Your reaction to those would've been good indication.
>>20391474While that was cool, I didn't really like the song. So I didn't find it that interesting.
>>20391942I absolutely love watching recorded shows. That's why I went. Because I wanted to be close to that entrancing magic. But it seems that sitting at home and watching them on your own is the best you can have. Maybe buy a projector if I have a home with a living room at some point in my life and watch them there.
>>20391994Just curious, how many live concerts (non-vocaloid) did attend before, if any?
>>20392013Sure, two concerts. However, both had much smaller crowds and I went with no expectations.Just to add to the above: I'm glad I did go. If I hadn't, right now I would be in terrible regret. There would be no way for me to tell if I should had gone.
>>20391474First seeing it live so it was definitely cool but I've watched past concerts which did the same except they had a large projection screen so she literally flew up above the stage
>>20392061I'm mainly asking to compare to my own experience. I attended Mirai 2018 and it was simply mind-blowing. I've been planning and preparing over 9 months and went in ready to be gravely disappointed (and regretful for wasting so much money and effort), but it was one of the most vibrant and memorable experiences in a very long time. I literally cried for the first three songs, how amazing everything around me was - visuals, sound, crowd around me...My Miku Expo Europe going experience is hard to compare because all of those things were worse. But still I came out very satisfied, mainly because of the songlist.
>>20392061Sounds like Japanese live concerts probably aren't your thing then. The singing and chanting is a lot more hardcore in Japan but even seeing Scandal or Asian Kung Fu Generation in London people were cheering along to the music, and I'm seeing Man with a Mission in February so I can go all Database32,000 people all singing>Chuu chuu yeah!When fhana is singing the Kobayashi opening is great fun
>>20392140MWAM is doing Manchester as well aren't they?
>>20392123How difficult is it to get tickets to Mirai as a foreigner? I'm a fan of a few Japanese bands and getting into their concerts without a Japanese address and bank account is pretty much impossible.
>>20392150Yeah they were at Leeds Festival last year now they got a Manchester and London gig. I'm in the South East so Manchester is too much of a trip for meI tried to get to One OK Rock but they literally sold out instantly. I saw Rookie is Punkz and Spyair in November and they were pretty cool, although the arena sucked ass in my opinion
>>20392157They sell tickets internationally just fine, as long as you win the ticket lottery or manage to book accommodation plan before they're all gone.
>>20392157Magical Mirai is one of the few Japanese concert that specifically tailors to gaijins. There's a separate lottery for Gaijins, and if you buy an (overpriced) accommodation package you're guaranteed an SSS ticket. Me and a friend both entered the lottery to try and get SSS tickets and whilst we both succeeded we both only got the normal S tickets. Like someone mentioned there's a separate gaijin seating block for Mirai so you'll be surrounded by chinks and weebs thoughFor other Japanese concerts there are professional services you can use who enter the ticket lottery for you, and barring that you can always just buy tickets from resellers (might be expensive but I didn't have any issues with the tickets being fake or anything)
>>20392169That's good to know, thanks! I had a lot of fun at the Expo and it seems Mirai is pretty much better in every way.
>>20392181Worst part about accommodation plan is hotel you get is really shitty (or I was just that unlucky). But it guarantees you a ticket. Also "free gift" is super not worth it.
>>20392140>aren't your thingThis might be a good way to put it. Maybe it's just not for me after all. I'll keep throwing money at audio equipment in search of my spiritual Vocaloid experience.https://youtu.be/CZ9S2vRSQQg
>>20392182Except the setlist, Miku Expo is almost always better bar a few a few songs since it's older stuff but Mirai has some good new songs (motherfucking Hand in Hand)>>20392207Yeah it's overpriced for what it is but if you're desperate for SSS it's an option. I probably wouldn't go back to Japan specifically for Magical Mirai to be honest
>>20392213I just put down $1.5k on earphones but they really don't work very well for Vocaloid or JPop so I'm considering going back to my old model
>>20392217>I probably wouldn't go back to Japan specifically for Magical Mirai to be honestYea, going every year is a bit much. It has been a colossal hassle. Maybe in a few years
>>20392261I don't see what's a hassle at all. The only annoying part is luck of the lottery but once you win, the going part is really easy. But I'm also not in a situation where spend $4k on a vacation is a big deal so your mileage may vary.
>>20392226I hear ya. Give them some time, but if they don't start to sound better to you, just return them or sell them. I still enjoy my DT770 much more than my Fidelio X2. But I have tried the DT1770 and they are a definite improvement, so that might be the next step.However, I've been using my speakers more and more. Probably 90% of the time now. These LSR305 were a good investment.
>>20392275Going outside my room is a hassle
>>20392261It's more that I only enjoy around ~60% of the setlist whilst the exhibition is interesting but not something you'd spend longer than 4 hours at, and flying all the way to Japan for a 2-hour concert that you only partially enjoyed is not great value for me>>20392285I plan to do that, if I still don't like them I'm going to drive 3 hours to the South so I can try out some other earphones and exchange them. You can still go better than LSR305 I imagine, I went from M-Audio BX5 speakers to Adam A7X and the difference is pretty significant, vocals in particular sound great
>>20392275Ye desu biggest hassle was coordinating with my internet friend who lives in another country for both of us to go on a weeb vacation, but there is plenty of fun to be had alone, especially at the concert.
>>20392308I don't take M-Audio very seriously, so that doesn't surprise me. But those Adams are quite the price bump from where I am now.Speaking of Adam, have this nice Tianyi song https://www.bilibili.com/video/av5921841Anyway, I should go sleep. Thanks for talking with me.
>>20392217If I’m guaranteed SSS I’ll take the overpriced hotel. Thank you anon.It will take a few years to save up but at least then I can splurge on gourmet food.
>>20392308>I went from M-Audio BX5 speakers to Adam A7Xwhy would you use studio monitors to listen to music? I hope you at least have a treated room.
>>20392577I'd prefer a neutral or bright sound, and I don't
>>20392591>I'd prefer a neutral or bright soundthose are mutually exclusive> and I don'tIf you care about the sound then at least treat your room before throwing money at expensive studio gear. You won't believe the difference it makes.

Brother killed himself. This was one of his bookmarks. Thanks for taking care of him until now.
>>20393280Sorry to hear that.
>>20393280damn. i will pray for your brother and your family.
I feel like I'm still waiting for some interesting aftermath of the London Expo. I just can't admit that was all that there is.
>>20394004Something interesting like the Expo 2019 concerts?
>>20392140Oh shit, I didn't know MWAM was touring. They're coming to Frankfurt as well and that's like 25km from where I live. Neat.On that notehttps://nyaa.si/view/1101063
>>20394121YES! THANK YOU!
>>20394066No. Something interesting right now and here. I feel I had so high hopes that I'm going away disappointed.
It's day two of being away from the London Expo, and I already miss it so much. What can I do to fill the void, anons? I had such a wonderful time, and rewatching the footage I recorded always makes me teary.
>>20393280I'm sorry for your loss. I'm so very sorry.
>>20394121Gold star anon.
>>20394301Do as I did and buy 4 albums and a random bunch of merchandise
>>20394518Merch-specific events, despite being super overpriced, is a great way to revisit those memories. Just looking at my bag of mirai merch makes me happy.
>>20394518Not going to lie, the tape just feels... So special. But how am I going to listen to it?
Concert rankings (been to all 3):>Setlist:Cologne >> Paris > LondonI enjoyed all 3 but Colognes definitely brought the hype with night fever, and hajimete no oto is a must, viva happy was also a nice surprise>CrowdLondon and Paris >>>>>> CologneCologne was by far the worst for this, the guys in VIP did an ok job but the other 80% of people were sitting during the whole thing, London had the better calling, and were the only ones to actually sing when melt started, and the only ones to do remote control properly.>Audio qualityLondon > the othersstill wasnt perfect, even though some of the things were probably intentional, like the real high pitched screeching noise during 初音ミクの激唱. tell your world sounded weird in cologne especially but they fixed it for London.
>>20388718Hey that's my arm
>>20394895>London had the better calling, and were the only ones to actually sing when melt startedHow can you NOT sing along to melt? WTF frogeaters and nazis?
>>20394901They did when miku did later in the song, but at the very start the crowd is supposed to start singing before she does and only a few people did
>>20394901>Singing over your beautiful and perfect lyrical deity.Fuck is wrong with y'all.
>>20394921Sorry I like to have fun.
Speaking of the crowd.Did anyone make scans of the Call Book?I didn't pick one up and am curious.
>>20394921anon its melt, miku herself would be sad if you didnt sing along during it
>>20394921Imagine not signing along during melt. It's literally the whole point of it existing in the set.
>>20394940You mean the guide book?
>>20394993I can take pictures now if you want?
>>20394895>>Audio quality>London > the othersWhat? How? It was impossible to hear the actual song, if you didn't know it by heart already.
>>20394999Audio in cologne was so terrifyingly bad where I was sitting that I struggled to even recognize songs. So if you knew what song was playing in London, you got a pretty sweet deal.
>>20394999Lmaoing at poorfags, VIP was an experience not to be forgotten.
>>20394881>Not having the 10th anniversary Tape player
>>20394999I could hear it fine. I guess if you were late af and ended up at the back like a retard it might be hard to hear.
>>20395020You're very fortunate anon. Where may I pick this up, even if still?
>>20395022I was at the front. Actually, it would be better to be father as it wouldn't be so loud.
>>20394895>the only ones to do remote control properly.It was still a mess though with half the crowd going in opposite directions
>>20394968I was literally the only person upstairs doing it for Melt, fucking casuals up there. Guy in front of me was a whale yet he just limpy flicked his light sticks out of time with the music
>>20395081Yahoo Auctions. Last time I looked there there was only one left though, and quite expensive.
>>20395738How much are we talking? And am I able to play them without the tape player? So just using a normal one?
>>20395745$150 or so. Keep in mind that it is a exclusive merchandising, only sold during a certain week in a certain store in Japan. It was not even sold online.But yes, it is a regular tape that can be played in any tape player. Look for a second hand one.
>>20395805Oh yeah I already had one, don't worry! I was just in a panic that I wouldn't be able to play the 2018 Expo one without this tape player.
>>20395652yeah but thats better than people not even going left to right, or not jumping during the chorus parts
>>20396026>>20394909Where did you sit? Behind the extended seats? I agree with the sitting though, even in the VIP on the very front there were people sitting almost the whole time, looking around confused and barely using their glowsticks, German autism at its finest. The rest tried really hard to be in sync together and started chants all the time but in the end it didn't work that well, especially while calling for the encore, kek.
>>20390774This.I only bought the t-shirt, because I wanted a proof that I was at the event. I personally don't like the illustration.
>>20396228The London one started a half-ass "Encore" which was replaced by "Miku" since no one at the back understood what was being said
>>20390774Could be worse, could be America's Miku Expo design. I liked the 80s vibe Europe's design had
>couldn't get time off to go to Europe so soon after Mirai>don't want to spend a thousand bucks to go to Taiwan for 1 concertI'm a good person. I'm honest and I always try to do the right thing. I don't deserve this. It isn't fair.
>>20396228I wasn't at the front, but there was this young guy sitting next to me.Now I'm a somewhat reserved and awkward person, but this dude was the stiffest motherfucker I've ever seen. He waved his glowstick in the most robotic way he possibly could until he got tired mid concert and gave up.I think, somehow, many people in Germany had no clue what the were walking into. This is what happens when you promote Vocaloid in normie media.
>>20396751There was a Japanese chick stood next to me in London who spent the entire concert looking at Facebook on her phone and half-arsedly waving her glowstick around with her off-hand.I figured she must be a normie, but why fly 12+ across the world for a concert in that case.
>>20396820Sure she's not chink or there with someone else?
>>20396820There are Asian people living in London on a permanent basis who don't need to fly anywhere.
>>20396820I'm guessing dragged there by someone else, or went with someone else as a favor. I get not being into stick waving, but if you're not watching either then I don't understand.
>>20396842>I get not being into stick wavingI don't. Stick waving is the best part.
>>20396839Chinatown is full of illegal immigrants after all
>>20394121SEED FASTER YOU FUCKING FUCK LEECHERS FUUUUUUUUUU
>>20396834She was speaking Japanese to someone behind us at one point before the show started, so probably not a chink.>>20396839That's true, I didn't think of that.>>20396842Probably, but she had the Miku film in her glowstick, why bother with that if you don't give a shit?
Lewd the Miku!?
>>20396869Calm down there is 150+ people leeching and only one anon at 100%
>>20396870>Probably, but she had the Miku film in her glowstick, why bother with that if you don't give a shit?Street cred?
>>20396228i was one floor higher than the vip seats, on the side, concert started and i only saw one japanese dude standing, i stood up and cheered hard and eventually one guy joined me but the rest were just sitting, 2 old dudes in front of me even left after the first few songs.also literally every concert fucked up the encore calls, none of them managed to get anything intelligible aside from a couple miku cheers
>>20396910NOT THE TRAIN MIKU
>>20396976What about bed Miku?
>>20396970Damn, all those stories sound terrible. Outside of occasional disorganisation in chants and stickwaving being a bit all over the place London crowd has been very lively. Everyone cheering, jumping and all that good stuff.
>>20397001thankfully i was so into the concert and liked the setlist so much i didnt care about was around me, the musicians also especially killed it in cologne. but yeah the crowd was really disappointing, which is weird considering the merch sold out pretty quick
I hope you guys like ONE as much as IA does.
Shoutouts to the guy that joined our convo about reimu's armpits as we were waiting for the show to start.
>>20397219>Not Miku's armpitsAre you gay or something?
>>20397538Someone fund a study about the appeal of Miku's armpits already.
Same anon who's been posting about asking how to deal with post-miku expo blues, knowing that this was my first show and probably the only one I'll ever see, but, fuck... I just feel awful, and it's gotten to the point where I'm being rude and short tempered with others. What can I do to improve my mood? Watching footage of the concert I recorded does nothing but make me upset and I start crying. I genuinely didn't think the expo would have such an impact on me, but if anything, it solidified my love for Miku even more.
>>20397846At this point you need a therapist.
>>20397854I almost yelled at my mum earlier, I really don't know what's taken ahold of me.
>>20397846I’d say Miku EXPO 2020 is very likely. You will watch Miku again!
>>20397912London was the only venue to sell out, and that was in the last few days, so are you sure?
>>20397923I imagine Paris probably sold out, not sure they advertised it as blatantly as London's sign LED though
>>20397930I just desperately need to see Miku again, this is making me into such a mess that I don't know how I'll cope this week.
>>20397923>>20397930London sold out fully with 5000 people, I don’t know about Paris but La Seine was at 90% capacity with confirmed +4000 people. It is said that Cologne sold more than 10000 (it was impossible to sold out because it was a fucking stadium).Yes, I say Miku will return to Europe, probably with more locations. How successful was the first Miku EXPO in the USA, anyways?
>>20397958Cologne could have sold out but they increased the capacity shortly before the concert and completely failed to sell the new seats
>>20397958Not to mention, they underestimated the production of merchandising. Most people at London couldn’t get some items.
>>20397961The concert being held on a weekday was a failure. Still managed to sell 10,000 tickets.
>>20397958Wasn't London 6000? I remember hearing that.
>>20397946Get a daki.
>>20397846Anons please I need help before I do something stupid or autistic.
>>20398002Better get 2: one for cuddles, another one for sexy time.
>>20397976I have a feeling that they shared the stock across Europe with London getting the leftovers hence the sell out. I got all the stuff I wanted so I'm happy enough but that's only because I made a last minute decision to queue up at 12:30pm instead of waiting until the doors opened for VIP at 4:30pmMagical Mirai had a similar issue when I went, although part of it was apparently attributed to chinks buying like 5 happis each or something. I queued up at like 7:30am and it sold out long before I even reached the storefront. I also remember that Miku Expo 2016 had a similar issue where the light sticks sold out very soon after the doors opened
>>20398007Any recommendations on covers? I would never lewd a Miku.
>>20398005Start planning for the next event. That will keep you occupied and give you something to look forward to.
>>20398086Most of the seating information was fucked up to be honest, next time I'd just go VIP standing and queue for ages (although I don't know how willing people were to let you leave your spot for the toilet during the London queue)
>>20398013They did. In Cologne the Stickers were already sold out to Paris.
>>20398103The stickers were already sold out in London as well, some Jap on twitter posted about it and he had been queueing since the morning
Did anyone know who the girl was who fainted at the London show? We were a few rows behind her and totally killed the vibe. Selfish bitch.
