The start of the Hatsune Miku fandom
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.
