More stores are carrying the Project DiVA Weiss Schwarz cards, while the Vocaloid concerts are doing well in the United States. And art galleries based on Miku Hatsune are popping up in newspapers as they are set up.
And the funny thing is..... the fans made this happen.
In 2008, Vocaloid started creeping up onto Facebook, sort of like an underground secret. And now it's become a part of our culture! We did this. We turned what was a Japan-only, seldom spoken-of project, and turned it into a standard staple of entertainment. Vocaloid's concerts by themselves have inspired companies to do "hologram" Pepper's Ghost concerts for 2Pac, Michael Jackson, and soon, more celebrities.
How long will this last? Who can say. It's lasted much longer than a "fad" and it's clear we are responsible for that. The best thing to do is to keep supporting it.
