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.
Whenever Japanese cosplayer Enako makes an appearance at an event, an insane number of fans flock around her to buy her merchandise.
Kuro Hekiten, a Japanese doujinshi illustrator and writer, passed away shortly after being rushed to the hospital when he collapsed at Comiket late last December.
The artist attended the multi-day event in hopes to sell his stuff just like other artists who set up desks and booths at Tokyo Big Sight’s west hall. Before the doors were open, Hekiten snapped a photo of the desks and tables laid out in an empty hall, describing the picture as “the calm before the storm,” according to SoraNews24.
Enako, known as “Japan’s #1 cosplayer,” disclosed the staggering amount she earned from this year’s summer Comiket.
The event, held between Aug. 9 and 12, saw Enako promoting corporate projects, selling her merchandise and drawing massive crowds to an open photoshoot.
