Titles previewed include K-On! The Movie, Fate/Zero, and Persona 4.
Several anime titles and movies slated to premiere this fall are being previewed at this year’s Comiket event in Tokyo, Japan.
Comic Market (more popularly known as Comiket) is a biannual event held at Tokyo Big Sight where self-published manga, called doujinshi, are sold by various doujin circles. The event attracts tens of thousands of doujin circles and almost half a million attendees per session.
It therefore comes as no surprise that the event has become a prime target for mainstream manga and anime companies to promote thier new offerings. The showroom for companies is located at the 4th floor of Big Sight’s West Wing, at the same floor as the designated cosplay area.
Some of the anime previewed at Comiket 80 (along with videos of their trailers) are:
