Comment on Comiket Numbers Plunge – “Comiket is Finished” by Kinny Riddle:

Exactly. 20,000-30,000 out of 500,000-560,000 is like a fluctuation of around 5-10%. I would be more alarmed if the fall in attendance is over 50,000, so all this hysterical doom mongering is a bit OTT if you ask me.

I went yesterday on the 3rd day and the place looked rather packed to me. Though I did noticed there weren’t that many Caucasian visitors around this time around, so the high yen excuse might actually have some weight. And you’d be surprised by the amount of doom mongering in foreign media reports about how Japan is becoming inhabitable after the 3-11 quake and nuke incident. While it may not stop the very devoted “gaijin ota” from coming , it might just be enough to deter the more gullible and less informed ones.

    Despite her late entrance, SumiSumi’s cuteness and eccentric way of speaking has grown on me. It’s like she’s the audience’s surrogate, placing her hands on where they’re required most, i.e. Haruka and Mitsuki’s boobs. :D (All that’s left is to feel up Kotone’s and Yuzu’s and it’ll make my day. ) Oh and …

    Puke-sempai’s flowery vomiting was kinda cute in a way. Oh and of course there would be an end card with Takao and Takao from Arpeggio, a tsundere club-president and tsundere battleship complement each other well. :D
