Next up from the Tokyo Anime Fair are the goodies that you can either buy or receive.

After lunch I forgot to go back to this stall to pick up these mini dakimakuras - they are small n cute! Sold for about 1,500 yen at the show but usually retail for about 2,700 yen. Gah.

Very comfy CLANNAD pillow.

Mini dakimakura of Konomi-chan.

More sheets and dakimakura to keep you company on those cold ronery nights.

Girl with red hair is nice - name that girl.

Ikkitousen girls and co.

More pillow action.

ToHeart wall scroll.

Happiness pencil board. I think I want this to be the next pose for Mirai-chan.

More pencil boards. For those who dont know, these are hard plastic boards called Shita Jiki which are traditionally used by students to place under a sheet of paper for when they are writing or drawing.

I used to wonder why these are so popular with otaku and then came to a conclusion why - this is why.

Tezuka goodies.

Mirai to be printed on toilet paper is the last thing I would authorize ^^;

Naruto Gachapon goodies.

This is what I set out to the show with.

And this is what I came back with ^^;

If you are going tomorrow on the last day then make sure you go through every nook and cranny to pick up all the goodies available.

All this stuff was free. Good Smile were handing out Penguin Musume stickers which will only be available at the show - or Yahoo Auction after I guess.

If you have a blog/site with a reasonable (100 unique daily) amount of readers, just turn up on business day and hand in a business card to get in. No need to pre register although they say they require it.

Press folks got free drinks too - Akibaos who I was with picked up 4 bottles ^^; Not sure if they were handing them out today though.

The Tokyo Anime Fair is just about the only major anime event (that I know of) but I know that there are anime events all over the world. Good Smile will be attending some in the US soon too.
What sort of anime events are there in your region and how good/bad are they? Have you attended any before and will you be attending any this year?
