Fictional characters can be found in fantasy tales from fairy tales to other mythical stories centered around such characters, but this isn't any ordinary fictional character from a fairy tale or a story. Her tale is much different, it was created or shall we say developed by the Crypton Future Media company, whose development created a humanoid persona portrayed as a 16 year old girl, with long turquoise pigtails, imagine Sailor Moon except without the magical powers, and that is what you get with Hatsune Miku, or sometimes referred to as Miku Hatsune. A virtual humanoid or vocaloid, using a singing synthesizer application by the Crypton Future Media company, where Hatsune Miku has been around for almost 10 solid years, singing, dancing, and playing from various parts of the world, including making her appearances across the U.S. Of A! Coming to sunny Southern California in the heart of Los Angeles County, where she declares Microsoft Theater, formerly the Nokia Theater her play place. Having played there three times now....

Her first appearance being during Mikunopolis taking place in 2011, following two years later in 2014 with her edition of Miku Expo, following that up with 2016's next version of the Miku Expo! This time around, it being pretty much the same deal as the previous concerts, that were held in Los Angeles, California.

Except there were some differences, for one being she had an opening act, an actual band called Anamanaguchi. Their style was straight instrumental, but they use eletronica in their source of music, combining eletronic with rock, to create a unique style that was similar to Hatsune Miku's style, given take they did do a little something together on the Miku Expo EP release. So makes sense, but they did open the show around 8PM sharp, the doors opening around 7PM as people filled in, once the lights dimmed the show began with everyone in sight, raising their hands high into the air, holding into shinny yet glowing sticks, yes that's right! Glow sticks indeed, were shaking left, right, up, down, every which way, they twirled to the beat of the musical notes progressing from the band, playing before them, that everyone just enjoyed their presents, bobbing their heads to the music. All in all their set was quite decent and they did keep the crowd hyped and pumped for the headliner!

Thus the one and only Hatsune Miku and her fellow vocaloid crew of musicians, including Rin, Len, Luka, Meiko and Kaito, all were to share the stage with one another, as the lights dimmed after Anamanaguchi finished up, as the band playing for Hatsune Miku set up, and were already ready to go, as the lights dimmed and the music portrayed itself, with am imagine graphics decrypting who was who in the band, as mist appear on screen, as Hatsune Miku appeared front and center for all to behold and wonder upon! She sang for a total of around 2 hours, with 27 songs in her setlist, consisting of such songs as "World is Mine", "The Disappearance of Hatsune Miku", "Glass Wall", "Ten Thousand Stars". "Blue Star", "Sharing the World", among others like "Star Fragment" as the closer. While her vocaloid friends like Rin, Len, Luka, and the rest sung their pieces as well Rin and Len singing "Remote Control", while Luka sung "Just Be Friends", and Kaito sung "Snowman" while Meiko sang "Change Me".

Hatsune Miku and Vocaloids:














It was unreal to witness these characters somewhat come to life on their holographic screen, singing, dancing, and the like, to everyone there in person. It was fun, entertaining, energetic, and just an exciting experience overall. Surly you can witness these performances again and again via any online video, but seeing it performed right in front of you, whether you'd be on the floor seating arena or up in the balcony section, either spot, would surely give you the experience, you will truly never ever forget.
