Pictures: Tokyo Comiket 86 (NSFW)

Last weekend was the 86th Tokyo Comiket, Japan’s bi-annual version of Comicon. Here’s how it went down:

Advertisements targeting the advancing otaku horde were plastered all over the nearest train station

They missed those that came by bike though

Close to the venue, Tokyo Big Sight, a few street performers were making the most of the crowds

Kakigori (shaved ice) was the food of choice, with a couple dozen vendors selling the treat from tiny stalls

Manga-themed water was also for sale inside the venue

Though many (including Tokyo Desu’s George) chose to buy Pocari Sweat from girls dressed up as maids instead

Don’t forget a maid outfit for your bottle

A lot of the manga was pretty… adult-oriented

Resulting in strange scenes like this

Security guards politely yelled at people

Some fans got decked out in official gear

While others kept cool with air-conditioned shirts

But all the attention was on the cosplayers’ outfits, some of which were amazing (click images to enlarge)
