Hatsune Miku Live Party (Mikupa) 2011 Review

Yeah, finally yesterday was Mikupa 2011 Live in Tokyo! \\(^O^)//
Of course I couldn't watch it because there's no way in hell I could go to Japan myself! But I already watched some video streaming from YouTube. Pretty fast, isn't it? The concert was yesterday but the videos are already in YouTube!

Well, this year's concert was awesome, just like last year. What makes me more excited is they gave more portion to Kagamine Twins. But of course, Miku still dominated this concert. But I'm disappointed because they only gave Luka a very small portion. They didn't even make any costume for her, so in this concert, Luka stuck with her original outfit. It makes me kinda sad since I'm a fan of Luka and I hope she could get bigger chance next year.

Here's the costumes:

See? Miku dominated it. Personally, I like Rin's Iroha Uta costumes. Len's outfit for Aku no Meshitsukai is awesome, too. But I'm kinda disappointed because Rin didn't wear gown when performing Aku no Musume (well and her hair looks more like meltdown -Hard R.K mix- instead!). And poor Luka, she didn't have any costumes T_T

Well, do you see any difference from last year's concert? Yup, this year they used black screen as background while in last year's concert, they used transparent screen. Black screen wasn't bad, but I prefer transparent screen because I personally think transparent screen gives a more realistic view.

And perhaps some of you have heard that many people were disappointed with this concert. Most of them said that this year's concert 3D model wasn't as great as last year's. As you all might already know, this year SEGA didn't make those 3D model, 5pb was the company who did. 5pb is a small company compare to SEGA and 5pb doesn't own the glass projector which SEGA used last year. So instead using the (expensive) glass projector, they used those black screen. Well, from what I have read, 3D model from SEGA gave a more realistic view and movement, but from some angles, this 3D model was hard to see. 5pb's 3D model looked kinda flat from some angle (well, although it's 3D model, it was actually manual black screen so we can say that it was 2D), but it can be seen easily by the crowd. I wish they could combine this technology NEXT YEAR XD

And many people also complained about the 30 minutes break, and they even gave some commercial, which was kinda annoying. It is said in 5pb's Twitter that the 30 minutes break was caused by some technical problems. Still, there were some improvements in this year. For example, they gave more portion to Kagamine Twins. especially Len. And they also added some emotion in the concert (for example when Miku did the fans greeting, and she even cried in front of the crowd before singing Hajimete no Koi ga Owaru Toki). But I admit that I'm still disappointed they didn't give Luka more portion. And I personally think that the new 3D model's eyes wee better because I see some "life" in them. It's just more realistic and alive. I like it.

And finally, here's the song list. You can click the link to watch the video in YouTube. But I'm sorry I haven't found all the video yet. Thanks for the uploader, and I also wanna say thanks to Shashie-senpai for posting this on her blog ^^

By the way, look what they gave you if you bought the concert ticket!

Sakura Miku action figure! I want one too!

Yup, those who attended the concert are very lucky, aren't they? This charm is getting more popular in Japan. If you wanna have this on your hands, you can get it from Yahoo! Auction Japan, the price is between 4000 yen to 24000 yen! So expensive, right? T_T

And they even sold some figurines in the concert! Here's the booth:

Er... I don't see Nendoroid Rin/Len there T_T
