More details regarding the upcoming Hatsune Miku: Magical Mirai 2017 event were announced during a Tokyo MX television broadcast, and reveals some exciting new concert details and exhibition attractions. Here’s the rundown of the updates!

  1. There will be partially different concert setlists for each of the 3 days of the concert.
  2. The concert requires 50% more CG animation than normal, due to the daily changing setlists.
  3. Something about “old Miku(s) making an appearance” (using old models, perhaps?)
  4. Illustrator APA will be hosting drawing teaching sessions.
  5. There will be an exhibit of Crypton’s “R3” animation technology (a form of real-time motion capture).
  6. An all-new life-sized Miku statue is in production for display at the event.
  7. Mobile and desktop wallpapers can be downloaded after completing questionnaires at the event.

    Not sure what to think on the different concerts, it’s kind of cool but I really hope I don’t miss one of my favorite songs or something. Hopefully it’s only one or two max.

    Wow, awesome! I’ll be there for 2 of the 3 days, I’m looking forward to seeing what changes! Also can’t wait to see the full-scale figure revealed, and in-person! (><)

    I need to buy a Sunday ticket now! I’m open to offers!

    First of all, is there any new on the new main song by Hachi? the one they played in the pv video. And second, the 7th update: will the wallpapers be downloadable even if you don’t attend the event? Like is it an online thing?

    The differing setlists is an interesting idea; I guess it means that the concerts will feel more “natural” due to the variation. I’m eager to see how this experiment develops and if it carries over into future concerts.
