Hatsune Miku Game Event

On June 5th there was supposed to be a "poster present" event for the upcoming release of Sega's "Hatsune Miku: Project Diva 2nd". By 8:45 AM a fairly long queue of fans had formed in the space in front of Yodobashi Camera next to the JR Akihabara train station. At that time, one of the Sega people was announcing over a megaphone that there was an unavoidable delay for the present and that they were really sorry.

Unlike what would have happened in the U.S., the Japanese fans listened silently. I had to get into the office at that point and couldn't stick around to see what happened next. However, when I took my evening break at 5 PM, the space had been completely cleared out and the displays dismantled.
