History[edit | edit source]
While the name of the band has remained the same, there have been line-up changes throughout the years. The first line-up played in concerts during 2011 in Tokyo, Sapporo, and Singapore (Mikupa), as well as the March 2012 concert in Tokyo (Mikupa).
In the Hong Kong concert, the lineup for MKP39 was changed dramatically. The only remaining member is Kouji Kinoshita, with Jun☆Murayama replacing Kei Suzuki on keyboards, TABOKUN replacing Toshiaki Monma on bass, and Ryoichi "KIKU" Kikushima replacing Yuuhei Matsuoka on drums.
Sapporo 2013 saw the return of Kouta Nakamura, and also the departure of Jun☆Murayama who was replaced by Imai Jun.
Kansai 2013 also saw the return of percussionist, Sachiko Wakamori.
According to the official MikuPa website, whilst Kei Suzuki is no longer performing as keyboardist, he continues to work behind the scenes as band master / manipulator.
Since 2014, the band lineup slowly began to be replaced with the majority of the members from Magical Mirai 2015. While the lineup continues to fluctuate, the most frequently used members are still from MM2015.
In 2019, they played as the house band for BILIBILI MACRO LINK 2019, which included performances from Crypton Vocaloids. This same year they were the house band for DIVE XR FESTIVAL.
Concept[edit | edit source]
It is well known to Miku fans that 3 and 9 can be pronounced as 'Mi' and ku' in Japanese. The alternate reading is "san" and "kyuu", from which the word "Thank you" (san-kyuu) is derived.
