Anime Events

Recommended doujin events for beginners


One of the probably second most well-known doujin events in Japan! Comitia is held several times a year, not only in Tokyo but also in multiple locations. In comparison to Comiket, it has fewer participants, making it a recommended event for those who want to take their time browsing doujinshi and other fan-made goods or interacting with people. Moreover, since it takes place multiple times a year, it's more accessible for participation compared to Comiket! Additionally, at Comitia, you won't find existing anime merchandise like Attack on Titan; instead, it exclusively features original doujin works. If you're looking for existing anime-related goods, it's recommended to attend other doujin events like Comiket. You can check more information here! Comic Market Page

Comitia (Toyko Comitia)


COMITIA is a doujinshi market held four times a year in Tokyo (generally in February, May, August, and November), focusing exclusively on "original" creations. Therefore, there is no involvement in secondary creations, such as anime works. The organizing committee refers to it as a "self-published comic book exhibition and sale." Its abbreviation is "Tea." In terms of scale, the May event is labeled as an "expanded event," with a larger recruitment size compared to other events. The November event follows this, while the February event tends to have fewer participants. Additionally, the August event, being held just after the largest doujinshi market, Comic Market, experiences a decrease in attendance compared to other events. Nevertheless, each event attracts tens of thousands of participants, making it the largest-scale event each time. In 2024, COMITIA is scheduled to take place in February, May, August, and November. You can also confirm the details on the official website.
