    POST GAME: Tokyo Winter Comic Market 2010

    We're back! JapanAnon participated in the Tokyo Winter Comiket on December 31st, 2010. Activities included raiding the cosplay area in Anonymous 'uniform' with YFTCs and distributing our latest edition of Anonymous Comics: Manga Edition in the seller's area. (pics at the end of the post)

    C79 was probably the most successful Comiket for us so far. Honestly, I was actually blown away by the turnout, and the sheer amount of support and well-wishes we got from the public who dropped by.

    Like every other self-published comic group at Comiket, we had a table to sell our printed comics from. Before we are accused of hungering after Jew Gold, we sell them roughly at cost (printing fees are entirely out of our pocket, also travelling to the event, parking, accomodations, et cetera) and typically lose money in the final calculation. So this isn't a profitable enterprise, nor is it our aim to make it one.

    The event ran from 10am to 4pm. Things were slow for the morning... not surprisingly, I figured, since everybody was busy buying from big, famous circles. Our booth was placed right next to the "Somewhat Daily Cult Newspaper", another anti-cult circle we made friends with last summer, so we talked to them a bit and sold a few books here and there. I figured it would be slow all day. After all, we were a small, minor circle with a very specific focus, and most people probably didn't know or care about Scientology here.

    Then, between around 1 and 2 in the afternoon, it started. I think maybe it was our position that helped... corner table at the edge of a high traffic area. Maybe all the use of Twitter helped attract peoples' interest and spread our name. Maybe doing Anon cosplay in the Cosplay area drew attention. Whatever it was, we were suddenly flooded with person after person stopping by the table, flipping through the books, and more often than not, buying. Even better than that, there were lots of people who came to ask questions, about us, about Scientology. Some offered words of support and encouragement to kick Scientology's ass, some came to share their stories of brushes with Scientology. One lady who visited our booth last year, whose friend got sucked into Scientology, dropped by again to chat about Sci front groups in Japan. An English-speaking Japanese lawyer even stopped by... a lawyer who specialized in defending cult victims, no less... dropped off his card and thanked Anonymous for everything they'd done to hit back at Scientology.

    By the end of Comiket, we had sold off every single goddamn book. And not just the new book, but even the old Wall of Fire comic and Fair Game, the Fate:stay night parody book got snapped up completely. The atmosphere from all the visitors to the booth was extremely positive, and I think we've made some very valuable friends this time around. I declare this raid to be a success.

    I was glad to see you displayed the United We Fight poster from the Hamburgfags. One of the greatest pieces of Anon art ever.

    I loved the shit out of those. They added so much colour to the booth. Special love goes out to San Diego Anon too <3 We played the Party Hard vid on the little laptop, along with a few other hand-picked Anon vids.

    The gentleman on the left is the &quot;Yaranaika&quot; meme popular in Japan, while the gentleman on the right is Shintaro Ishihara, Tokyo's racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, and dangerously insane Governor, responsible for a recent draconian censorship law in Tokyo. I lol'd.

    Awesome work.

    Always interested in the anti-cult scene in Japan.
    That lawyer guy may have been someone I've read about through ICSA conferences.

    Thursday is Naruto fansub torrent night (Friday in Japan), where the latest episode gets captured, English sub-titled, and thrown onto a torrent within hours of the show being broadcast. I asumed that this week was probably doubtful, but there it is!

    That's way more awesome than the normal awesome! As Inner Sakura would say (in sub-titles) "Hell yeah!"

    I have not even the faintest idea what you're talking about but it sounds great
