Doujin Market, more commonly known as Doujima, is held twice a year and has been running since April 2014. Doujima is an event specially dedicated to showcasing artist’s works, be it fan-art or original pieces. The event has certainly grown much bigger than before, with over 30 circles exhibiting their art this time round.

If you have not heard of the term “Doujin” before, it simply refers to self-published works, often by artists passionate about their craft. At Doujima, merchandise commonly exhibited included can badges, acrylic keychains, prints, posters and more.

The crowd was strong even right after doors opened at 11am on the first day, and visitors could still be seen going on a last-minute shopping spree for goods close to the official ending time at 6pm.

One series that stood out in particular was Touken Ranbu, a popular online game featuring bishounen personifications of historical Japanese swords. Touken Ranbu merchandise could be seen at almost every circle, and some cosplayers could even be seen showing off their Toudan, or “Sword Boy” cosplay at the event.
