The details regarding the Exhibition events for Miku Expo in both Los Angeles and New York have been released, and reveals some exciting details unique to each location. For Los Angeles, the exhibition will be held at the Los Angeles Center Studios from October 11th~12th, and Wallplay in New York from October 9th~19th. Entrance to both events will be free to the public.

Los Angeles Art Exhibition Details: This event is held as a Japanese Matsuri-styled festival event, with an art exhibition around the universe of Hatsune Miku, featuring a selection of gorgeous artworks by popular artists, and centered around a special Halloween-themed space. Exclusive items will be on sale at the shop to make for a fun and original Halloween celebration. [Link]

New York Art Exhibition Details: A selection of cool and exclusive artworks and posters featuring the universe of Hatsune Miku, showcasing different aspects of the culture that she initiated in her native Japan and that is now taking on the world. Some of the posters exhibited are on sale at the venue. [Link]

It has also been revealed that an official Hatsune Miku Halloween version nendoroid (based on the illustration above) will be on sale this fall, and sold at both Miku Expo venues. Although they did not directly reveal what the nendoroid looks like, a tweet from Hama at Good Smile Company gave us a hint at what we can expect, and says the nendoroid will be fully revealed at Magical Mirai in Osaka later this month.

This previously unknown nendoroid revealed at the Good Smile Company live stream last May will be the upcoming Nendoroid: Hatsune Miku Halloween version.

I would like to apologize for this being shared late on the site, despite being shared earlier on MikuFan’s other social media outlets. It was uploaded while most MikuFan staff was at Anime Expo, and I forgot to publish an article. Thank you for your understanding.

Having any sort of official Hatsune Miku concert event far outside of Japan is not easy, and such events like Mikunopolis in Los Angeles in 2011 required the sponsorship support of Toyota to make it happen. So with the news of Crypton hosting an entire expo dedicated to Miku on top of a concert, you can imagine a lot of work is involved in the process.

Thanks to this documentary video from the official Hatsune Miku YouTube channel, we get an in depth look at what it took to make such an event possible. With Miku Expo in Los Angeles and New York scheduled for this October, and a 4th unannounced location, this is a great look into what fans can expect to see when attending these events.

The MikuBook FindMe campaign is also still open for choosing the 4th Miku Expo location, so cast your vote if you haven’t already!

The 3D model resembles Model 14 from Bump of Chicken’s Ray, and animations used for the songs were fairly high quality. Unlike previous concerts, there was no live band with Miku, but there where two back-up dancers on stage with her. With each of the 6 songs and time between them, the opening lasted approximately 25 minutes.

Each of the songs had a unique remix for the concert, as well as a new animation for it. The songs played are as follows:

 

 
There are still 15 concerts left, and tickets are still available for many of them.
 
More information will be posted as it is received.
