The first and more important question is- when is it??
I have heard that it is usually the weekend after Christmas, but this year Christmas is on a Friday. Do you think they'd start it on that day, regardless? O_o;
I thought the dates for the winter event were announced at the summer Comiket, which was last weekend. The website has not been updated, so who knows...

ANYWAYS, I will be going regardless. Anyone join?

The dates were announced. It will be held from 12/29-12/31. They're just slow with updating the website.

Not sure if I'm going though.

I believe Summer Comiket is always held on a weekend. Winter Comiket is always held for 2-3 days between the 28th and 31st regardless of whether it's a weekday or weekend. The dates usually do fall on at least one of the weekend days, just not this year.

I want to. But I'm getting back from my trip back home on the 30th T.T

Looks like Summer for me.

Though I will be in Tokyo for the new year if anyone left over from Comiket would like to meet up and hit Akiba or Otome Road.

Mason, would love to meet up at Comiket on the 31st. We're staying in Ikebukuro until the 3rd when we head back to Kagawa-ken, but would love to hang out. We won't be cosplaying though (as it's too much trouble to haul costumes and wigs home for the holidays to the US and back *blech*) We'll just be buying porn and schmoozing :3

Masonkun
12-08-2009, 06:56 AM
Cool I'll be staying in asakasa I'll be in ikebokuro on the 28th to find cosplay stuff too. We must make a trip to akiba for more money wasting lol.

kiratsukai
12-08-2009, 06:58 AM
Akiba is never a waste of money... just a waste of talent :)

Though before the 30th, I'll be in the US (or on a plane in transmit)

*do yourself a favor and go to Nakano for cosplay stuff first. The Mandarake there is epic and less picked-over/touristy... though the last time I was there, it was CRAWLING with foreign tourists T.T So someone may have let the secret out. Oh, god... maybe it was me... >.<;;;;

Anyway... it's the first stop on the Chuo line out of Shinjuku in a building at the end of a covered shopping street called "Nakano Broadway", you can't miss it... you can see it from the train platform.

Nah ~ but the final day is heavy on original goods and comics (and the bags/sets from Nitroplus and Orbit are available all of the three days... at least until they sell out). It's all we could manage this year with the trip home. But nearly everything book-wise is available on the days following at Toranoana and then pops up again at Osaka Comic City in a month :)

No worries.

Masonkun

I'm thinking of takeing the train from shinbashi station or shin kiba, does anyone know a better route.

kiratsukai
12-14-2009, 08:56 AM
There are only three routes and all are miserable between 7am and 10am.

DO NOT take the monorail before 10am! The AC doesn't work effectively in a crowded train... I have seriously thought someone might die in there before O-o; Granted it was summer, but I hate to think of what it'll be like with the HEAT on. It's hot and crowded and gross. Get there hella early or opt out of the early-gang for a late arrival (you'll still line up to get in for an hour anyway).

Otherwise, ferry from Akasuka or take the surface/subway combo (more of a walk, but less traumatizing).

I live in tokyo so I will be going to winter comiket to cosplay! it is the 29th 30th so only two days and chances are I wont be there all day, dont want to make the husband suffer lol.

Masonkun
12-15-2009, 11:53 AM
I've never heard of the surface subway combo, I was thinking of takeing the yurikomome line all the way at like 11 or just taking a taxi from the Peir if u know a good route that might be better could u let me know or where the ferry is. Also if I take the ferry what's a good time to take it.

Masonkun
12-15-2009, 11:58 AM
Celestialshadow would u like to meet up too?

Mason ~ There are boats from Hamamatsucho and Asakusa... pretty much just a speed ferries geared to tourists. Personally, I hate the Yurikamome... so if you want a train, take the Rinkai line from Shibuya or Shinjuku (bound for Shin-Kiba) to Tokyo Teleport (it's within walking distance). Just follow people with roller luggage (cosplayers).

Alright, I'm headed to Tokyo today and back to the states tomorrow. Will land back in Tokyo on the 30th but will probably be really really tired that night >.< 31st, I'm planning to hit up the exhibition floor and the original dj sections from 10ish in plainclothes. No cosplay this year. Will probably loiter for a few hours at the venue then アフター in Akiba (dinner and karaoke).

My cell ~ 090-3789-1873

Just be sure to tell me who you are if you call me ^^; I'm going to be jet-lgged and confused.

mixaka

I'll be there on the 30th and 31st! Probably will cosplay the 30th and just wander around the 31st. I have a cell phone as well and will try to call and meet up with people. If anyone would like to meet up on the 30th, shoot me a pm and I'll send you my cell info.

Masonkun
12-20-2009, 09:42 AM
Well so far that's 2 people so that's cool. I can't wait for akiba afterwards too.

I really want to go to the Comiket, but my family's coming over, so I'm not sure if I can excuse myself and spend a day - let alone three - buying doujinshi and cosplaying. (Oh, and given the large crowd at Comiket, I'm not even sure if I'll be cosplaying.)

So, is it true that the lines are so ridiculously long that you'll spend hours waiting if you arrive before 10? Is it advisable to arrive at about 12 or 1 pm? But then again, if you arrive pretty late, you won't be able to get many things done...

Are you all going to Comiket together? I'm still trying to find a group to hang out with. I found one person, but she's only attending one day. I'm staying until the 1st of Jan. And I'd like to attend the TFT Event because I was told that's the place to go cosplay rather than in Comiket. :)

Masonkun
12-23-2009, 11:39 AM
Yea so far it looks like 3 people on this thread are going. I'll be there until the first too. What is the TFT event?

xtrishax
12-23-2009, 10:32 PM
The TFT even is a cosplay event according to Adella. ^^ And my Japanese friend. I got a map of where it's at. It's close by to where Comiket will be. And if you'd like your picture taken if you're cosplaying, you can go there. Ginny McQueen told me that Cosplay.com and Cosmode will probably be there :)

Masonkun
12-23-2009, 11:52 PM
Oh please give me that info too i cant find anything about it online lol

xtrishax
12-24-2009, 12:00 AM
Do you have any messeging thing? ^^; And haha I tried finding a site and couldn't find none. I even asked Adella, and she knows there is one, but doesn't know where to look. ^^ Google failed on my also. But my Japanese friend gave me a map o.o

12-27-2009, 02:09 AM
A bit late to this thread but I'll be going to Comiket as well. ^^; xtrishax, when are you heading over to TFT from Comiket? I may head over there after hitting Comikiet. There are mangakas that I want to see....

12-27-2009, 04:16 AM
I'm heading down there on the 28th because my bus from Hachinohe will leave that day and won't arrive in Tokyo until the 29th. But I'll still be there on the 29th. :) If you wanna give me a call, call me cell and we could hang out also. Lemme know where you're staying to. I'm going to be in Yokota, so I'll be taking a train to Tokyo Big Site.
