Here in Canada, we’ve never had a full Hatsune Miku concert, though with her meteoric rise in popularity one can hope that it’s only a matter of time before this international sensation comes and entertains her growing thousands of adoring Canadian fans.
I had my first chance to experience the Hatsune Miku craze last year at Toronto’s Fan Expo when Crypton Future Media, the company behind the singer, put on a concert screening of the Hatsune Miku Live Party 2013 in Kansai event, which was held in Osaka, Japan. Considering this was a screening, and not a live concert, the raw emotion of fans in the packed theatre, as they sang their hearts out and waved glow sticks, was enough to convince me that Hatsune Miku is truly something special.
