The third (?) Tokyo Character Show took place on July 22 and 23, 2000 at the Makuhari Messe (halls 9 and 10). Just as with the Tokyo Game Show, Digi Chara Festival, etc.. there were many seiyuu events on the main stage and the various vendor booths.
There were also many goods on sale, and most of the people were there for that. There were LONG lines at some of the popular booths, like Broccoli and Kodansha, and some of them had 4 hour waits. Of course the line to get into the TCS was worse.. So many people had camped out overnight for this that even if you went on the first train in the morning, around 5:00, there were thousands of people in front of you. It was very HOT waiting in line outside for 4 hours.
Since I went to watch the seiyuu events, I didn't have time to buy any goods. (^_^;
