The largest coterie magazine spot sale “The Comic Market 92” being held at Tokyo Big Sight in Tokyo (exhibition period: August 11 th – 13 th). There were 150,000 visitors on the 12th the second day. From the 2nd day, the rooftop exhibition hall was also opened as a cosplay area, there were people around the cosplayers who dressed in various costumes, including summer swimwear.
At “Comique”, sightseeing spots of doujinshi and corporate booths, as well as cosplayers who dressed as characters of various anime and comics are attractions. And a long line that you can shoot for cosplayers is also a common scene in “Comic”. When becoming a cosplay player of the attention, the waiting time is too long in the line, so “shooting” shooting is also done.
Factors that people can do are various, such as popularity, boldness, topicality, but the “box” that shows attention in the field can be said as a proof of the popular layer. And when people gather in the “enclosure”, there is a thick “wall” of people. The sense of expectation by that “wall” gathers more people, but this time I dare dare to interview the “enclosure” or “wall”. I shot a popular layer that can be made of “enclosure” and “wall” beyond the matrix. (this is cited from here)
what is Comiket?
Comiket (コミケット Komiketto), otherwise known as the Comic Market (コミックマーケット Komikku Māketto), is the world’s largest dōjinshi fair, held twice a year in Tokyo, Japan.The first Comiket was held on December 21, 1975, with only about 32 participating circles and an estimated 600 attendees. Attendance has since swelled to over a half million people.
Comiket was founded in 1975 by Yoshihiro Yonezawa and a circle of friends, including Teruo Harada and Jun Aniwa, while they were studying at Meiji University. They wished to study manga and explore its potential, as commercial offerings were unchallenging and mainstream, following the closure of COM.Comiket was also founded as a freer form of the SF Taikai convention.
Comic Market is held twice a year; once in August, and once in December. These are typically referred to as NatsuComi (夏コミ Natsukomi) and FuyuComi (冬コミ Fuyukomi) (contractions of Summer and Winter Comiket) respectively. NatsuComi is three days long, and usually is held during the weekend around August 15. FuyuComi is two to three days long, and usually is held between December 28 and 31. The current convention location is the Tokyo Big Sight convention center near Ariake, in Odaiba, Kōtō, Tokyo.
