8/30 was an "event day" for many people.
One of the events was "Tokachi Gold". It was a live DJ/VJ event of idolm@ster fans.I was unable to go to the event, but was listening to the music online via ustream, and it was really fun!
Creators of idolm@ster uses "P" after their names - "P" stands for "producers", as in-game, players are supposed to be the producer of those idol singers.
Those producers include my favorite producer, WakamuraP.
His videos are amazing, he was performing as DJ as well as VJ today :)
He has uploaded his DJ video from Tokachi Gold here:
While watching the ustreamed DJing, folks were writing comments while watching the blacked out screen with only the DJ sounds. You can see how people are commenting just as if they are watching Niconicodouga- danmaku comments!
As you may have noticed, this is very similar to the way people watches NicoNicoDouga and NicoNicoLive (NicoNicoNamahousou)
This is the screenshot from NicoNicoLive on 8/31. You can see the comments filled with danmaku comments "kishimeeeeeen".
Following is one of WakamuraP's videos, a remix of 15 Perfume songs * idolm@ster videos. I think it is difficult to understand what is great about this video when you see it for the first time. The song is sung by a group called Perfume, and WakamuraP remixed some videos from idolm@ster, most of the backgrounds and effects and synced them. All of the lip-sync and motion-sync etc.
This is the most recent video of WakamuraP.
This is the list of WakamuraP's videos.
Other producers that performed at Tokachi Gold are:
Because of the capacity of the venue, many people were unable to participate although they tried to register. People who could not join Tokachi Gold planned another meeting and did a karaoke party.
