I'm impressed.

I have never seen much of Vocaloid, but I found out about 'Black rock shooter' and the possibility of it becoming an anime so I watched a little of the song, i liked it, didn't understand where they were going with it, but the design for Miku was pretty awesome. So when I loaded up Aim this morning I found a little article on Miku's live concert. While the guy sounded like a douche about it I checked it out.. and I must say I got goosebumps. Maybe it's the Otaku in me or whatever you call it, but Miku looks fucking alive and dancing on stage with her fans shaking their leek shaped glowsticks around her to the beat.
 
I gotta say the band around her also looks amazing and very talented, and I also admit I got swept up and caught myself trying to sing along to a song I can neither know the words too, or understand. Maybe it's safe to say that that pig tailed girl has another fan of her and her songs, and perhaps willing to purchase a few vocaloid items from overseas just to see what this is all about. But I have to say, after seeing that show on youtube, i gotta say, I'd love to see that in person.

I don't much care for her, but the technology to display her looks pretty neat.

There was a much more insanely titled thread about this a couple days ago...
 
Yeah, Japan is great at making really awesome technology...and then turning it GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY with fruit baskets being emptied upon it by cherubs clothed in rainbows made out of glitter.
 
(Either that or the person who came up with this idea is an incredibly perverted fetishist...)

@InfiniteGeass:  I like Len more myself. XD
 
@nintendoeats:  I don't think they turned it gay in the least, it's great tech, i think the more it becomes popular the more that they could do with it.

@Catolf: The words of somebody looking at anime from the inside...don't get me wrong, you have every right to be into whatever you are into and I would never criticize you for it.
 
BUT HOLY CRAP.
