Magical Mirai 2015 Trip Update.

Hello, just came back from Japan for my very first Miku Concert. As a Miku Fans, I must attend her first Biggest Concert in Nippon Budokan!!

From the moment the offical announcement of her live concert at Budokan was made on 06 March 2015. I quickly searched for hotel, did JPY currency exchange, and get everything ready.

As soon as i arrived in Japan, I checked into a hotel, ate an Onigiri and Lawson Mocha Frappe, I was all ready for Miku Concert the next day.

My accommodation ticket was for the first live on the night of 4 Sept 2015. But I arrived sooner to Bodukan to queue official goods. Just show them the accommodation confirmation e-mail and they will let you queue at the West gate early.

I came one and a half hour before the sales began, and it took another one and a half hour in queue until my turn. Total 3 hours I spent on official goods were totally worth it.

After shopping, I went to the ticket exchange booth to get my Ticket.

Number 39, I can't control the smile on my face.

Next I went to the Exhibition at Science Lab.

After enjoyed the Exhibition, I bought some drink and waiting for the concert door to open.

Long queue.

The last encore part song moved me deeply, as this is my first Vocaloid Concert. Most of the selected songs were very meaningful to me as a long-run Vocaloid supporter.

Let's talk about me for a moment, skip this if you guys not interested.

My first encounter with Vocaloid was via PSP game: Project Diva in 2009, I was addicted to it in an instant. Searching NicoNico for previous songs, staying update for new songs were my daily task, I also search VOCALOID tag looking for songs to listen in my free time. Then I found out that, there are plenty of great Vocaloid songs remain untranslated. I decided dedicate my love of Vocaloid to the world. I started a Youtube Channel name arklung00 as Vocaloid English translation channel, with my bad English grammar, I did my best to translate the song and share to the world during my free time.
During that time, my sister noticed me, with her help, she corrected my grammar and gave suggestions to improve my translation. Here, I'd like to thank the other Vocaloid's Translators:
We together share the Vocaloid's Voice to the world.

As time passes, Vocaloid become famous. The copyright issue started. Most of the Vocaloid channel on Youtube received copyright strike and were forced to close down the channel. arklung00 account was shut down as well.
After that I created arklung01 and 02, both of them were unable to survive within few week of copyright strike attack.

Only arklung03 account survived.
I did upload some of my translation works there, but my heart was broken because most of my previous works were lost. In addition, my favourite Producers like Deco*27, Sasakure.UK, Ryo, Doriko, Kz, Livetune... all becoming less active. I stopped translation, and focus on my job in real life.

In 2015, suddenly I saw the news of Miku Concert will be held in Nippon Budokan. I bought the flights without hesitation, and also researched how the accommodation plans work. After a long waited 6 months, I finally went to see Miku.

Miku thanks all the Fans with "Tell your world" as an opening of the concerts.
Following with few new songs that are announced recently in ProjectDivaX. I was so excited throughout the concert.
The encore part, Miku brought us "ODDS&ENDS", "39", And "The First Tone". I cryied. Somehow I felt Miku says "thank you" to me as a ex-translator.

I was too excited and couldn't sleep at night after the concert.
Taking picture of my Goodies brought in concert.

Thank you Miku, YAMAHA, Crypton and Sega for bringing Miku into my Life.

Vocaloid Fans, since 2009
