Enako, who is known as Japan’s top cosplayer, returned to this year’s Summer Comiket event and attracted a jaw-dropping sized crowd to take pictures of her.
Summer Comiket 2019 attracted around 730,000 attendees, breaking the previous record of 590,000 at 2013’s event, according to Crunchyroll.

The 25-year-old cosplayer, who makes one million yen ($9,481) a month through cosplay, attended the third day of the four-day Summer Comiket event on August 11 dressed as the character Rem from the anime “Re:Zero,” SoraNews24 reported.

Even though the model stood quite a distance from her fans, photographers were well prepared for the occasion. Equipped with long-lens cameras, the photographers focused on Enako and took shots as if she were up close.
