PiercingMetal Thoughts: As I’m not following this particular property, I don’t really have too much to add to the mix but I wonder who among the readers who is planning on attending this convention will have to add. Please feel free to indulge me on how cool you think this is down in the comments section below. Please know that I will be in attendance of the three days of happenings and will try and snap some photos of Miku if that is permissible. See you next time around.
