LOS ANGELES, CA - October 17, 2012 - Happy Disappearance Day! It’s been five years since Hatsune Miku was taken down and returned to the Internet. Two weeks after her program was released, the popularity of the vocaloid program on the Japanese Internet had reached such a heightened frenzy that Google and Yahoo Japan began blocking the keywords “Hatsune Miku.” The enormous traffic the search engines received for the keywords was mistakenly believed to be spam. Outcries about the “disappearance of Hatsune Miku” had been so loud, hours later Google and Yahoo would officially apologize and restore her back to the Internet. Thankfully, she was returned and is going to perform live at PMX 2012!
