Wow! Ten years of Miku-chan! Very Happy

Imagine any township in the US consenting to such a measure, even for a day. Laughing

I'm guessing Chiba's logo was supposed to be a "star", but darnit, it DOES look like MIku. Even a cute greeting-card version of Miku. Anime smallmouth
How often does a logo-coincidence opportunity like that come along, anyway? Not every city gets the chance to be Google's front page.

Have we gotten any special anniversary songs written for the occasion, like "39" was for the fifth anniversary?:

Hachi produced "Sand Planet" for the Magical Mirai concert and the lyrics touch upon how the fandom has changed and references a lot of popular songs over the years.

So, IOW, they're sick of the whole darn thing by now.
Well, that...cheered up my day. Confused

Where can I buy one or get one?
I've searched all over on Ebay and looked on Amazon and no one has posted any for sale.
I want to buy one or some. Got any references where someone or some company can sell me one of these??!

Late reply I know, didn't get an email notification; that's not exactly what the video is saying. Hachi was expressing that a lot of people have come and gone from the fandom, and there is a lot of chatter lately about how the fandom is "dead" (hence the post-apocalyptic setting), but there are still those who continue to stand behind Miku in spite of it all, and there are those who come back to join her side again. Those skull people following Miku represent the producers who contribute to the fandom and that flower-faced girl represents the fans.
