The start of the Hatsune Miku fandom

August 16, 2008 | Author: | In: Anime Blogs, Everyday Life, Japan, Merchandise

Hatsune Miku is a well known character and I have been a small fan of her’s for a while. However there hasn’t been a lot of merchandise available for online ordering so the fandom hasn’t grown all that much. However after visiting Ebisu-cho in Osaka, that has changed quite a bit. Now many of you know about my Da Capo fandom and how much I’m willing to spend. Well this fandom takes it a little further.

What you see in the photo above is a Comiket exclusive item from 2007. Not sure which Comiket as I haven’t looked at it properly but the items above are a pillow cover with the design by CARNELIAN, and small illustration booklet and a Hatsune Miku tea cup. Really I have to blame my friend Roobar for spotting this one for me as the price tag was one thing that was holding me back on this. I held off on the first time we went, but I gave in and bought it. Pretty much this had costed me ¥21,000 (roghly $210 AUD) for all three items.

So the Hatsune Mike fandom starts off with a bang and I’m sure there’ll be more hatsune Miku purchases throughout this trip. Though if I keep making purchases like this, I fear for my wallet.

I realize that the shopping area is centered around Ebisu-cho and not the actual Nipponbashi bridge, but it still sounds really weird to hear someone call it that. O_o

…What were we talking about, again?

You missed out tons of miku stuff at comiket >.<. Do you have the gsc nendoroid? It’s so hard to find a cheap one.

Oh, you got a bunch at wonderfest, just saw that earlier post. That was pretty smart.
So kawaii!

Miku fandom greater than Da Capo fandom?!!?!?!?!?

Adun, this is madness!!!

I could have sworn I posted on this already. Anyways, Miku demands my money as well. I’ve only got a shirt of her so far, but figma, nendoroid, mug, all kinds of Miku stuff demands my money. I’m also trying to get my hands on the actual Vocaloid program…
