Today I have something a little different for you guys. So far I’ve just been doing figure unboxings, but recently I’ve started to buy more blu-rays sets so I thought it would be cool to unbox them.
Those of you who follow my blog probably know that I’m a huge Miku fan. I love watching Miku concerts and I decided I wanted to get my hands on some physical copies versus simply watching them for free on Youtube. Well, the most recent of these concerts to be released on blu-ray was Hatsune Miku Live in Kansai 2013.
Pre-orders for this set were available back in April, but there were still plenty of copies left on CD Japan when I ordered mine at the beginning of August. I ordered the set for 9121 yen (it would normally have been a bit more but I had some points saved up) off of CD Japan. I normally would have ordered of AmiAmi since it’s cheaper, but I wasn’t sure if the extras such as the mini-pamphlet replica and pouch were included since they didn’t list them under the description.
Included in this set are:
- The Blu-ray with a bonus disc that contains footage selected from the Mikupa concerts in Taiwan, Hong Kong (2012), and Sapporo (2013)
- A black carrying pouch
- A mini-pamphlet
- And of course the art box that everything comes in
The major difference between the DVD set and the Blu-ray set is that the DVD set does not include the bonus disc. Details on the other sets that were available can be found here on mikufan.
Let’s start by looking at the blu-ray before moving onto the extras.
The blu-ray contains footage from the Live Party in Kansai concert that was held on March 9th, 2013 at the Wakayama Big Whale in the Kansai Region. The concert was approximately 3 hours long and a total of 39 songs were performed. Here’s the track list below (You can check it out in further detail on the Vocaloid wikia too):

Here’s a quick look at the inside of the case. The book on the left contains the lyrics to all the songs in Japanese and a total of three discs were included.
Next on the list is the mini-pamphlet. The pamphlet is 35 pages long and contains things such as photos from some of the other Miku concerts, behind the scenes photos, artwork, and live interviews. Unfortunately I still can’t read Japanese, so I’ll have to wait before I can read the interviews.
Finally, the last thing that was included was the black carrying pouch. It’s supposed to be for the blu-ray, but I think I’ll end up using it for other things such as carrying Nendoroids for example.
Well, that’s it! Hopefully you found this unboxing helpful if you’re deciding whether to get the blu-ray or not. Here are a few places you can buy it:
