Event Report: Spring M3 2007

KOF 2000 embarked solo upon a thoroughly wallet-emptying M3 adventure last weekend in pursuit of nearly unhealthy quantities of doujin music CDs.

HDTV Episode 02: the Comic1 experience

In between hunting down doujinshi and documenting the avian wildlife of the Tokyo subway system Shipon unleashed his camera fu at the first ever Comic1 last Monday, April 30th.

Event Report: Comic1 doujinshi convention

Shipon spent a pre-Golden Week 5 days in Tokyo, taking in the sights, collecting photos and content for HD and, oh yeah, getting along to April 30th’s Comic1 – the touted replacement for the now-defunct Comic Revolution convention. Tales of recognition, doujin and a mysterious loss of cash ensue. Also, pigeons!

Event Report: World Hobby Festival Ariake 16

The 16th incarnation of World Hobby Festival in its Ariake location occurred yesterday, May 5th 2007. HD was there to take in the event for the first time, and came away quite satisfied by what turned out to be essentially a miniaturized version of Wonder Festival. Despite occupying only one of the Big Sight‘s voluminous West halls the event still had a lot to offer garage kit and figure enthusiasts – more than enough to break one man’s wallet and fill his camera’s memory with tasty photos. Read on for the low-down on WHF, and more pictures than you can shake a reasonably large stick at. Warning: while this post isn’t tagged as ero, it does contain some adult content.

It’s a time for hanging out with friends, checking out upcoming talent and blatant consumerism. Shipon spent a day documenting the scene, then another 5 days blurring out people’s faces.
