Thank you not just for 10 years, but also 20, 100, and I believe far into the distant future.

I surely trust technologies make us happier.

If you wanted to make the trip to Hatsune Miku’s live performance at last night’s event at B.I.G. Carnival in Shanghai, but couldn’t quite make it, the live recording is officially available online via LETV!

We’d also like to apologize for a misreport by the B.I.G. event staff: Instead of featuring “at least 7 songs in Chinese”, Hatsune Miku performed 7 Japanese songs, and 1 Chinese song. It was the first live use of her V4 Chinese voice bank.

Check out the press release image gallery and the video from the player below, or click this link if the player doesn’t load: http://www.le.com/ptv/vplay/28990354.html
