Plus, Bocchi the Rock!creator’s newfound fame causes chaos at venue.
Game of the Week On The LIVE, A League Of Cosplayers On The horizon Everyday, Winter Comiket Traditional The Last Few Days of December.
This years Winter Comiket was a scaled back event held across two days from 30-31 December, with a limit on visitors that had to wait until tickets were placed. As last year, when the event returned after a two-year pandemic-induced collapse, and also since 2011, when the event was back, held across two days from 30-31 December.
These safety precautions dampen Comiket 101 as 101st iteration officially known as cosplayers come out in force to honor some of industry’s hottest characters. Comic Market’s Comiket short hits big name for doujinshi (self-published manga) and otaku culture; although there were always the big cosplayers who brought the limelight, so let’s look at some of the best cosplayers from Day One below!

I don’t think, combining as a character from a camping scene where he simply sits, eats, is really a real way to avoid the temptation to eat at a big event like this!

This clever cosplay is a nod to the 2022 World Cup match when the ball appeared to be over the line to the naked eye, but the VAR ruled it out.
Even though most cosplayers were out of venue, there was cosplay inside, amongst the big company booths that had been built up. So before we look at those, we need to take a look at an interesting activity that took place on the day with Bocchi the Rock creator Aki Hamaji.!
Bocchi the Rock!Started Off as Four-Pitch Manga Series in 2017 and was later adapted into a TV anime that ran from Oct to Dec 2022. The anime became a hit on the line, launching the series and its creator to stardom, so much so that Hamaji had to be moved outside for safety reasons, at the massive crowds around her booth.
Twitter poster Hamaji says she was feeling more isolated after her Twitter posts.

The new outdoor setting is more suitable for meeting and purchasing lines of people who also know the artist. Major booth may be needed for next summer reunion at Summer Comiket due to Hamajis newfound popularity.
Now lets get back to the cosplay at the company booths
Yostar booth shared some official cosplay costumes, props with the public, like the ones below from the booth.

But it ends for our Winter Comiket cosplay coverage, but before we leave, just enough time to grab a drink from this special vending machine.
This limited edition vending machine sold us a limited edition tea wrapped in artwork by doujinshi artist @panno_mimi.
