Ain't no party like a YouTuber party
Virtual YouTuber Kizuna Ai has taken the world by storm, landing everything from anime voice acting roles to her own Nendoroid. And once you're that big a deal in Japan, there's only one thing to do: throw a birthday even for your fans!
The event will be helpd at Nicofarre, Niconico's revamped version of nightclub Velfarre. The club is equipped with LED screens and AR interactivity, and has been the site of several Vocaloid performances in the past. These digital enhancements make it the ideal place for Ai-chan to mingle with her fans.
Admission to the one-night-only event in Roppongi will be 6,800 yen. More details are coming in the near future, but for now we know that partygoers will have access to new and limited goods.
"AI Party! ~Birthday with U~" takes place June 30th at 7 pm.
