An idol unit “Team Pigg Mint” held a gig in Japanese virtual world “Ameba Pigg” [J] on November 3rd.
Team Pigg Mint is an unit selected from members of popular girls group “AKB48” [J], who has been running long-term promotion in Ameba Pigg.

Of course, “real” Team Pigg Mint members operated the Team Pigg Mint avatars.

Ameba Pigg’s events are very popular, and 15,000 users gathered in this event. Ameba Pigg’s developer company Cyber Agent sold the event tickets on a limited sales for 150 yen, which were sold out!
Whenever Ameba Pigg events happens, they prepare a lot of virtual “halls”(server). (Whichever hall an user log in, you can watch the same artists’ avatar.) But, this was the first time that over 10,000 audiences attended for the same event simultaneously. Perhaps, that amount of attendees might be the first time in Japanese virtual world business history, too.
