Coming back this year with a bigger and better show, AniMiku will once again be hosting a live holographic Vocaloid concert at Tora-Con 2013! The show will feature a live performance of the Vocaloids on stage with countless improvements from the previous year's show, with a setlist similar to that used at AniMiku's show in Hampton Roads, Virginia last November. Come see the show that broke records at both Tora-Con 2012 and NekoCon 15! The show will be run by Re:VB-P's new and improved version of the AniMiku holographic rendering engine; the same one used in their Virginia show. If you were unable to see either of their two east coast concerts so far or are a Vocaloid fan and would love to a see a live concert, this show is not to be missed!
This is a fan-made event run with the permission of Crypton Future Media, Inc.

Tora-Con started from a small cosplay event held by the RIT Anime Club in 2004. Because of that, we view cosplay as one of the most important events during the con. We love seeing everyone's work and we are willing to give out great prizes to our contestants.
We continue to be impressed by the quality of the costumes that appear each year and we hope that this year's event is bigger and better than ever!
