POST GAME: Aug. 16, Tokyo Summer Comic Market We printed 50 copies of our home-grown Japanese version of Anonymous Comics. I wasn't that optimistic about sales, so we didn't want to burden ourselves with a huge pile we'd have to carry there and then carry back. But it turned out to be a pretty good number. We ended up selling somewhere around 25 copies, and got quite a positive reception from everybody. A couple of /b/tards, or ex-/b/tards dropped by, attracted by Boxxy. The vast majority were Japanese customers though, not surprisingly. Some ever knew about JapanAnon, and offered words of support, asking if we planned to come back for future Comic Markets. Most just seemed interested in the art, or thought it was a funny parody work. We made sure that website addresses and information were provided in the text, though, for when they read it in more detail. We got quite lucky in where we were positioned at the Market. While first-time circles usually get stuck into the narrow aisles, we got a table at the head of a column, AND near a major entrance to the hall, so lots of people could freely and comfortably pass by and take a look. One of the tables next to us was run by some Christian group. Since we'd registered ourselves as "religious criticism", we got put next to her. The lady there was actually very friendly, helped us out a lot with problems we had, and even asked questions about Scientology, Anonymous, and our message. She seemed surprised to hear Tom Cruise was a member of Scientology, and said she would look up more information online. Since she was against 'new age religions', she said she considered Scientology her enemy as much as ours. I hereby declare Operation WeabooMatsu to be successful.
