Hatsune Miku’s 3/9 celebration MATSURI DA DIVA is over, and reactions are mixed about the two hour plus event, with some complaints from Vocaloid fans about all the amount of time given over to seiyuu rather the virtual idols themselves…

The event began with a rousing Miku music video to warm up the crowd, then turns into a variety show of sorts, hosted by Vocaloid seiyuu Saki Fujita, Asami Shimoda, and Yu Asakawa, with live singing performances by other vocaloid seiyuu Naoto Fuga and Meiko Haigo – although with there being a notable divide between Vocaloid fans and seiyuu otaku and some questions as to just what business a bunch of vocal models for synthesiser software and third party songs have in being identified as Vocaloid “seiyuu,” the event was perhaps not as straightforwardly received as organisers might like.

And in a bid to promote the game this entire show is intended to promote, the seiyuu show off their Project Diva rythmn game skills (or in the case of Saki Fujita, a lack there of…), and finally exit with a final all-seiyuu singing performance:

Then began the main event all Vocaloid fans were waiting for, where the holographic princess descended to the stage to perform a 6 song setlist, including some new songs and past classics such as Tell Your World and The World is Mine:
