Held twice a year annually, one for summer and one for winter, on Tokyo Big Sight convention center, the world’s larget doujinshi fair, Comic Market (also known as Comiket), successfully finished the 87th fair on December 28 to 30, 2014 with a blast. Comiket 87 received 180,000 visitors on just the first day, passing the 170,000 visitors Comiket 86 had last August 2014. With this many attendees, the doujinshis, markets and cosplayers are numerous too! Most especially on three of the most popular subjects for cosplay and doujinshi which are the anime series: Yowamushi Pedal, Amagi Brilliant Park, Kuroko no Basuke and Kantai Collection. We also get a cosplay shot from one of the characters of Danganronpa, Love Live!, Super Mario, Youkai Watch as a bonus!
Two reporters will be interviewing some cosplayers around the Cosplay Area of the fair! and, it will be an “assault interview” where they randomly interview cosplayers and let them introduce to us who they are and what character and anime their cosplay is from.
Reporter Yunmao Ayakawa is on the Cosplay Area of the fair to interview some cosplayers from Yowamushi Pedal. She is dressed up as Manami Sangaku from Yowamushi Pedal‘s Team Hakone Gakuen. Here she introduces the cool-looking cosplayers from the same anime and school/team she cosplays. Ayakawa is even amazed by the effort of Touichirou Izumida’s cosplayer put in for Andy and Frank (the name of his abs)! and in the end, we see a short glimpse of posing from the team members. Here is the list of the cosplayer’s characters from the order of introduction:
- Manami Sangaku
- Jinpachi Toudou
- Juichi Fukutomi
- Arakita Yasutomo
- Hayato Shinkai
- Touichirou Izumida
The CEO of ONIGIRI PLUS Inc., Yui Kanan, will be reporting from the Cosplay Area with her kimono! Here Yui introduces us to one of the main characters of the anime Amagi Brilliant Park which is Sento Isuzu complete with her gun and her unique top hairstyle! In the end we see a striking pose of Sento and her gun.
Yunmao Ayakawa is back to interview three of the ship girls from Kantai Collection: Kancolle! She interviews us the cosplayers for Choudokyuu Senkan Hiei, Haruna Choudokyuu Senkan and Choudokyuu Senkan Kongou respectively. She also asks how they feel for the anime adaptation of the card game which airs this season. And they seem so excited for it! As usual, we get to see their nice smile and pose in the end.
Yui Kanan introduces us to another one of the ship girls from Kantai Collection: Kancolle! And here, we see Mogami Class Heavy Cruiser, Kumano in her uniform! Plus, an “I will do my best” pose in the end!

Say hello to Kuroko no Basuke‘s Generation of Miracles! Arakawa introduces us to six of the members of the “legendary” basketball team. But sadly, Kuroko wasn’t included. However, we get a loud intro and rambling of Midorima so I hope you don’t surprise yourself! (Despite his real calm personality in the anime). Here is the list of the cosplayer’s characters from the order of introduction:
- Atsushi Murasakibara
- Daiki Aomine
- Seijuuro Akashi
- Shintarou Midorima
- Ryouta Kise

As a bonus, we present you Yui Kanan once again interviewing Danganronpa‘s Junko Enoshima in her quite sexy outfit! As her first time in Comiket, she is doing fine with her cosplaying skills and posing!
We also have Minami Kotori’s from Love Live! School Idol Project‘s cosplayer to give us a wonderful smile and “Thank You!”
Another one is a really cute cosplayer from Super Mario‘s Kinopio/Toad along with her stunning smile!
Also, we get a cosplay from one of the Youkai’s of one of the most popular anime today in Japan, Youkai Watch! An adorable personification of Coma with a Youkai itself!
And there’s more! Featuring the μ’s idol group from Love Live! School Idol Project!
That’s Comiket for you! Massive amounts of attendees and gorgeous cosplayers! And a trivia: admission in the event is totally free, but the products sold in the fair, of course, they’re not. Would you like to see more of the cosplayers for next year’s Comiket?
