    I like Vocaloid as much as the next awkward guy but those "live" concerts are sad. -.-

    Nobody's forcing you to watch the very first concerts with a fully-generated 3D singer rather then a person.

    if I ever went to any concert, it'd be a Miku concert.
    They look pretty cool. I don't really care if she's "real" or not.

    I actually like the live concerts, they're pretty amazing from what I saw on the internet. Vocaloids are now seen as Virtual Idols, especially Hatsune Mikku, this might actually have a strong impact in the future of music. =3

    Those "live" concerts are the only few concerts I have ever considered even watching. The other ones being from Suzumiya Haruhi, K-On, and Lucky Star.

    Gumi sounds a lot better than Miku IMO. Sure, there are a few good Miku songs but most are simply too high pitched for my taste.

    If its cool to go to a fake concert with tens of thousands of unwashed otaku hopping to a light projection and songs about spinning around and vegetable juice, then I don't want to be cool.

    I'm fine listening to the music in private. Besides... not like live music is better than studio-made music so its not like I'm missing out on fake-live music.

    Hey, Po Pi Po is hilarious and odd.
    Though you seem more ignorant to the good Miku songs (considering how many songs there are, that's not THAT surprising since a lot of mainstream ones aren't great).

    As far as concerts go, a bunch of unwashed Otaku are a hell of a lot better than the drunken unwashed retard crowd most concerts have. The fact that it's a projection means very little as well, honestly.
    The entire concept of a concert is asinine. A Miku theme is hardly any more absurd than any other concert.

    So is Weird Al, but you don't see people rushing to buy his music or sell out his concerts. And yes. I'm ignorant because fake concerts choose to play mainstreme songs created artificially set to nothing more than a light show representation of a fake idol.

    I'm I'm neither complimenting or insulting po pi po, I'm just saying that its an incredibly lame song for a concert setting. Its like Kid's Bop, or songs for kids by kids:



    I'm guilty of enjoying (and replaying) Winter Wrap Up or Art of the Dress (and tens to hundreds of Vocaloids alike), but I wouldn't want to be caught in a concert jumping to it.

    What I want to know is why they made the lyrics be sung so ridiculously fast on some songs. You can't sing along with that!

    Gorillaz were the first to use this Holographic technology for a live performance (2005 MTV music awards).

    I dunno... She sings faster than is humanly possible in some songs (i.e. The Disappearance of Hatsune Miku). Only the masterful asians can even attempt to sing that fast and succeed for a second before needing air.
