The Comic Market known as Comiket is a dojinshi (a self-published non commercial publications) market held in Tokyo twice a year. Comiket holds another event called Comiket Special once in every five years, and that is happening this year at Makuhari Messe at the end of March.
The theme of this year’s Comiket Special is “Otaku Summit 2015.” The organizer, Comiket Inc. “wish to hold a dialogue with people around the globe who also love manga, anime, and games,” according to the message on the website of the event.
There will be some extra fun besides the dojinshi market at the event. There will be “Otaku Expo” where different Otaku events from home and abroad will be introduced as the organizers of otaku events from various parts of the world will be attending the expo. Moreover, a live music show will be hosted at night on the 28th. It is going to be a festival for all otaku from around the world who share the love for manga and anime.
To enter the venue, you will need the Comic Special Catalogue. You can get one on the day at the venue or if you want to get it in advance, it will be sold at Comiket Service in Shimokitazawa from March 6th, and other book stores (eg. Animate) from the 7th. The price is 1000 yen incl. tax at Comiket Service and at the venue, and 1080 yen incl. tax at other book stores.
