I was about to say "oh, that's not too much then." That's because I misread 100,000 as 10,000 yen!

And that's considered average? I think I've underestimated how big of an event comiket is.

Scribble, if they have them in your country, have you ever been to a Farmer's Market? Go to buy two porkchops and a bag of potatoes but damn that apple pie looks good. And those almond tarts. And ooh, fresh apple cider!

I figure it's like that only a bazillion times bigger. Wouldn't take long to burn a hole in your pocket.

The only big thing that'd save me is that I wouldn't buy anything H because when I got back I'd know the guy who had to look through my bags

that's not too out of the ordinary for a large con expense. there was a thread on the GenCon LLC forums before they switched to their new software listing how much everyone spent at the con. i believe the average was $600. i know my personal average is $800 every year. that is not far under ¥100,000. and gencon is not as much of a merchandising event as something like comiket.

Doujin creators often consign their leftover stocks (or reprints) to these shops so that their fans who weren't able to make it to Comike/weren't able to obtain the doujin product can get them here. The price is usually slightly higher than the event price.

Other stores that are similar to Tora no Ana include Melonbooks, Animate, White Canvas, Sofmap, etc.. All of them have multiple storefronts inside Akihabara, some specializes in a particular type of product over others.
could you tell me in what area in Tokyo those chain stores are, i want to go there someday

but after seeing the prices in dollars i think it will have to wait for another 5 years untill i finish my educaation and make some more money

Just make your way to Akihabara station, get out and walk down the central street, and you'll run into them eventually.

Here's a "virtual walkthrough" website that let's you "walk" down Akihabara, try it out.

I'm going there tomorrow, and not I'm pumped beyond words!

I'm trying to limit my expense to 50,000 Yen (75,000 Yen last year), but I guess that's kind of impossible considering that I'm planning to get this along with tons of doujinshis. T_T Aww... my poor pocket.

That link I found contains interesting guidelines and information for the people who want to cosplay at Comike 70.

Maybe this litle report on the massive number of people at Comiket would be interesting. It's crazy, the humongous number of people.... but at some point in my life I'd love to go. Even if it sucks... it's almost like a religion >_>;;; Before I get too old and unable to handle the crowds!! (That's admittedly far away, but my chances of going are so slim.)

Comike 70 Cosplay photo gallery

http://eg.nttpub.co.jp/event/comiket06/

Gallery full of pics dedicated to the cosplayers of the past Comike.

It's interesting that about a fifth of the total photos went to Haruhi Suzumiya cosplayers.

Higurashi no Naku Koro ni cosplayers gain adherents as well.

Summer Comiket 2008

Hi everyone,

I'm planning on visiting Tokyo this summer and attending Summer Comi while I'm there, but I don't know anybody that lives there and nobody I know who would go wants to shell out for the plane tickets to go with me.

So I was thinkin maybe some random people on the internets would like to go with me. Would anyone that lives in or is planning to go to Tokyo meet up and go together?

Sorry if this is the wrong place to ask... didn't know anywhere else to post a request like this.

Yes yes yes. Keep that to yourself.

There's nothing better than to see the rare doujin illustration books ^^ (too bad I live a bit too far away to get my hands on any >.<)

Hey, that's a very popular point of view.
It's not uncommon to see people in other boards talking about how they can't wait for C74 because of that.

I know. There's more to Comiket than just my love of Artbooks and Illustration books. But when I think of Comiket, that's usually the first that comes to mind.

but I understand your thinking ^^

Comiket question for those who have gone before...

I have a few (quick?) questions for those who've attended prior comikets...

Thinking of possibly attending C75 this winter since I'll be in the Tokyo area for about month. If I understand correctly, it sounds like it's primarily for buying from various doujin circles (which in and of itself I have no interest in...the buying part). Is it worth going to, just to mosey around or am I better off just meandering around akihabara if I have no intentions of purchasing doujin from the various circles attending?

Also, anything I should expect/be aware about? I know it's during peak winter travel in Japan so public transportation will be chock full of people, but any general input would be greatly welcome.
