Comiket, the world’s largest doujinshi event, made its return with C95 on Dec. 29-31 at Tokyo Big Sight! Winter Comiket drew crowds as huge as ever, with a total of 570,000 visitors plus 34,900 doujin circles and 165 companies participating over the weekend.
This year saw a huge increase in works inspired by the Internet’s recent biggest stars: virtual YouTubers. Another highlight was, of course, the cosplay! The event always attracts countless fans ready to show off some truly spectacular costumes, so let’s take a look!
Plenty of familiar faces from works like My Hero Academia and Cardcaptor Sakura were around!
Love for the recently released Super Smash Bros. Ultimate was also clear with this group!
Speaking of releases, there was also tons of excitement for the upcoming Kingdom Hearts III – just a few weeks to go!
While a Keyblade can be quite the formidable weapon, there was definitely plenty of competition.
The Fate series was also well represented as always!
And of course, Comiket wouldn’t be complete without a ton of creative and wacky costumes.
We’re already looking forward to the next Comiket, and we hope you are, too!
