From the Organizer

2015 marks the 40th anniversary of Comic Market, which started as a place for the fans to engage with likeminded enthusiasts, through discussions and turning their ideas into doujinshis. In time it has grown into the great festivity we see today. The so called otaku culture, which includes manga, anime, games and cosplay, has come to earn an international recognition, and Japanese anime and manga are now being enjoyed by people across the world. We are delighted that there are so many otaku fan events taking place in various countries.

Comiket Special 6, with the cooperation of fans and event organizers both domestic and foreign, aims to celebrate and unite the international otaku population. There is a variety of programs never seen before at Comiket events, in the hope that we may go further in providing that special space for the fans to appreciate and show their support for Japanese creative contents.

Why not share your passion for doujinshi and make friends with otakus worldwide? Comiket awaits your participation as your country's representative.
