hat’s International Manga Fest? The first “International Manga Fest” was held on November 18, 2012, and was supported by the embassies of seven countries, Cultural Exchange Bureaux, several publishers, some manga artists and many others. Manga in Japan, Bande Dessinée in France, American Comic in U.S.A… Our hope for the future is to provide a platform within Japan where people all around the world, who have an interest in manga culture, can freely exchange their opinions and ideas. Luckily, we will be able to hold the second event this year in cooperation with Comitia. We are hoping to succeed in establishing our name in the domain of manga festivals such as “Comic-Con International” in the U.S.A and “Festival international de la bande dessinée d’Angoulême” in France. Japan as a well-known “Manga Kingdom”, International Manga Fest should be the one to offer such an opportunity for all manga enthusiasts to come together. We expect more to greet more artists and publishers than last year. We are sincerely looking forward to seeing you at the Tokyo Big Sight in October 20, 2013
omitia is the exhibition and marketplace for original creations. It provides a place where both professional and amateur comic artists can offer their self-published books. It is a stage for artists to freely express their unique and novel imagination through their publications as well as it is a treasure-hunting place for readers who are not satisfied with off-the-shelf books and want to explore new works.
