Class 13 ? Meeting Hatsune Miku @HYPERJAPAN
Who lives in London has surely many occasions to enjoy Japan’s pop culture. As every Londoner otaku knows, the biggest summer event is HYPER JAPAN, the three-day festival entirely focused on every aspect of J-culture: from contemporary arts, such as anime and manga, to the traditional heritage of cuisine and clothing. In order to help their pupils to get ready for this year’s edition(s), in this week’s episode the duo composed of Anthea and Rice tells what your professors experienced during both the editions of Hyper Japan they attended in 2014 ( HYPER JAPAN Festival July 2014 and HYPER JAPAN Christmas Market 2014).
The common theme underlying both trips turned out to be Vocaloid, one of the biggest otaku phenomena of the last decades, the singing voice synthesizer which doesn’t need any introduction. Therefore, your professors decided to dedicate this episode to Hatsune Miku & Co. as well!
We even got an exclusive interview with not one, but TWO personalities linked to the Vocaloid software! We met Yanagi Nagi, the first vocalist of Supercell to replace Miku as their singer, and Yoshiaki Masaki, the representative of the mega-Miku-fan-group Mirai no Neiro. We rock, don’t we?!
This week?s music choice is “The World is Mine”, original VOCALOID song by ryo (of Supercell), sung by HatsuneMiku.
