During the recently concluded Nico Nico Choukaigi 3 event which was held from April 26-27, 2014 in Makuhari Messe in Chiba, fans got to visit the hideout of the elusive Mekakushi-dan from one of the hottest new anime series this Spring 2014 season, Mekaku City Actors.
Given the amount of hype the series has generated, it was no surprise that the exhibit generated a lot of attention not just from anime fans, but from vocaloid fans as well. Several lucky fans were given a mission to locate the Mekakushi-dan hideout which was faithfully reproduced thanks to the Mekaku City Actors anime team.
Only 900 lucky participants were allowed each day to try and “find” the elusive hideout, so of the thousands of people who attended the event, only a fraction were able to catch a glimpse of the hideout. Those people who managed to find it were given special certificates and took pictures within the hideout.
Mekaku City Actors is based on the Vocaloid song series, Kagerou Days, which is created by well known vocaloid producer, Jin (aka Shizen no Teki-P). The vast multimedia project, which involves not only the song and the new anime, also involves mangas and light novels.
