The global version of the popular rhythm game Hatsune Miku Colorful Stage was supposed to host a “Reviving My Dreams” event, but plans were eventually scrapped. This decision was made because the story of the event contained elements of racism, and more specifically, the interactions between city dwellers and those living in the inner forest.
Interactions between characters in the story that even refer to Insiders as “barbarians” or “savages” are sure to be controversial, which is why it was decided not to bring this event to the global version. In fact, some fans have argued that the event was inspired by Princess Mononoke, but the public reaction will definitely lead to a more negative impression.

In the end, the decision to cancel it was the safest solution, especially since publishers do not have the right to modify the content of stories that have been constructed. It’s a shame, but again, it’s a more energy-efficient tweak, especially as Western netizens become more responsive, especially on Twitter, which is very vocal about this sort of thing. As long as fictional media is involved, slight images of racism are certainly not a problem, especially if major lessons are learned from it. However, no matter what the reason, we are already in a different era than before, and we often have to keep up with modernization.
