As if a Battlefield. Some Tweets from Attendee of COMIC MARKET

Just last month was the world largest otaku event “Comic Market(C84).”

I think many people would want to go to Japan just to attend this event, but can they say that after knowing the truth?

This time I’d like to introduce some tweets from the attendee.

One of the attendee’s live blog (Night before ~ end)
  • There’re over 1000 people lining up already the day before, Ariake Nishi Port Park. @buslitt
  • There’re over 3000 here, guys… @zone0poisonpink
  • There’s line even though it’s prohibits?? to anyone who thought of that. There’re about 5000 people. If there is a penalty there’s going to be a riot, and COMIKE is going to be cancel. It’s like “there’s going to be riot so can’t help it.” @yryr_k_on

You can see the original here

Known as the most cruel event in Japan, Comic Market 84 seem to be even more cruel this year. You can even see cloud inside the building due to the heat(Just what’s in those cloud?).

If you’re ever planning on participate one be prepared. It’s not a place for picnic.
