Tokyo International Anime Fair / 東京国際アニメフェア 2008

March 29 & 30 at Tokyo Big Sight! Admission is only 800 yen in advance for one day (or 1000 yen at the door).

I'll be back in Japan on March 5th so I'll be dropping by this for at least a day. I'm not that big into anime anymore, but I think it'd be worth it to attend just to see it!

I think before it was said that cosplaying isn't allowed at this event, but I heard that there were cosplayers last year...? I wonder if somebody could confirm this.

日本人の方へ、ぜひここで返事して下さい。日本語でも英語でも大丈夫です! 遠慮しないで下さ い。 (笑)

今年の東京国際アニメフェアに来るなら、一緒に遊びましょう!

I'll most likely be attending with a friend coming to visit from Canada. I think I pointed out on another thread that cosplay isn't allowed at the event and from what I've read, this seems to be the case. If you look at the FAQ, Q1, found here it states that cosplay is prohibited. English page stating the same can be found here.

But, that doesn't necessarily mean that everyone follows the rules! Also, some people might just cosplay in areas adjacent to the fair and not actually at the fair itself.

While I could play the gaijin card and pretend I didn't know any better, I think I'll just go without cosplaying then.

Yeah, I considered playing the gaijin card too, but they were kind enough to provide the info in English, so I figure I'll follow the rules. Plus it might be a bit hard to pull off if you're the only one standing around in a costume!

I've been considering bringing an outfit along though. Just in case people do cosplay 'next to' the fair.

I decided to add a rusty Japanese message to the first post because I don't want any Japanese people to feel as we're only making these threads for gaijin attendees!

I still wanna go since it's nearby, and I like seeing events like this even though I'm not as into anime these days. Sometimes there's seiyuu events and the like and that's always a big draw for me, like when I saw three King of Fighters voice actors at TGS.

Thumbs up

I'll be attending! It would be cool to meet some of you from cosplay.com.

Anyway PM me and I'll give you my mobile email. I probably can't hang out the whole time because I'll be attending for business , but it'll be cool to have a chat!

I won't have a cell phone while I'm in Japan (couldn't justify the cost last time and probably won't bother this time!), but maybe we'll run into each other anyway. A general Cosplay.com meetup time could be arranged, too!
