Here are the details of the Hatsune Miku related event that I announced on my Twitter and Facebook a few weeks ago.

This weekend, there will be an event in Singapore called Manga Festival Singapore which has been organised by METI (Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry). The main purpose is to spread awareness of Japanese manga to the locals.

My responsibilities after being assigned as a Creative Director for the Japanese government have broadened and I'll be looking after more events like this from now.

Anyway, on the 15th there will be a load of B2B (Business To Business) meetings and lectures while on the 16th, there will be fan event at Kinokuniya (Main Store - 391 Orchard Road, #03-10/15 Takashimaya Shopping Centre, Singapore 238872).

So how is this Hatsune Miku related? Well Miku's dad will be there - Itoh Hiroyuki President of Crypton will be there to give a talk and I will be the panel moderator. He will also be signing along with Yoshizaki Mine - Keroro sensei! If you want me to deface your property then I'll also be available to do so.

The full schedule for the 16th is here. I'll only be attending the event on the 16th - need to skip the 15th as I will be traveling from Kuala Lumpur on that day. I'll probably be there from 5PM this Saturday.

So what is this Moekana card then? Its an exclusive Dakimakura card which I will be giving away free to all folks who show up to the event this Saturday 16th wearing a Moekana T-shirt. The card features Haruka hugging a dakimakura of Mirai Suenaga ^^

If you dont have a Moekana T-shirt, then you still get one of my new business cards - but only if you ask for it. I only brought with me a hundred though.
Folks wearing a Moekana T-shirt will not only get the Dakimakura card but also my new business card too.

Look forward to seeing you on the 16th - dont forget to wear your Moekana T-shirt! Can be any one of the 4 designs that we have released so far.

Details about the whole event at the following resource - comes complete with some Engrish ><

Once the event has taken place, I'll update this post with photos and bump the post to the top.
