Post-Event report, version 0.9 by Hitoshi Doi, 1995.12.31
Comic Market 49 took place on 12/29 and 12/30, 1995.
In general 12/29 had stuff aimed at girls (pretty boys and gays),
and 12/30 had stuff aimed at boys (pretty girls and ecchi stuff).
But the seiyuu stuff was on 12/29.
My group (Kimagure Production) was in the East building on 12/30.

pre-comic market preparations
Scanning through the comic market catalog..
On 12/30, the A building will be shounen original stories and
some other shounen miscellaneous stuff.
C-ARTS is in "katakana-O" 26 A.
C-ARTS makes the very nice Aaa Megami-sama books.
The West building will have shoujo original stories and
JUNE related stuff.
You won't catch me near there.. (^_^;)
The New building first floor will have game related stuff and
Lots and lots and lots of ecchi looking things..
The New building second floor will have lots of stuff, that I'm not
particularly interested in. (^_^;)
The B building will have original stories aimed a "guys" and
RPG related stuff.
Ecchi Nakoruru, ecchi Cocoa, ecchi Sasami..
The South building will be Sailor Moon.
It's not that big a building.
The East building will have fighting games, non-fighting games,
and magical girls.
I'll be spending almost all of my time here. Maybe I won't leave
this building at all. (^_^;;)
There seems to be a lot of Nakoruru stuff.. Also plenty of Chun Li,
Vampire Hunter, and such.
At least 20 or so groups have some Puyo Puyo stuff. Lots of cute
Aruru and Carbunkle.. I wish they have some cute Witch and Harpy.
Also there is Kirby, Doukyuusei, Twinbee, and Toki Memo.
Lots of Toki Memo!
Finally in the magical girls section: Akazukin Chacha, Wedding Peach,
Nurse Angel Ririka, Tenchi Muyou, Mahoujin Guru Guru, UY/Ranma,
Tenchi Muyou, Sazan Eyes, Aa Megami-sama, Hime-chan no Ribbon,
Minky Momo, Creamy Mami, Pelsha, Sweet Mint, Humminbird, Compiler,
Ryuu Knight, Rayearth, Nurse Angel Ririka, Saint Tail, Silent Moebius..
[Not all of these are magical girls, but it's the closest
genre for them to be put in.]
post-comic market report
I probably spent the least amount of money among my four times
at comic market.
I only got 55 books, 61 badges, 2 posters, 13 calendars, and
7 packets of stationary.
Maybe I'm becoming more picky.. or I was just concentrating too
hard on Saint Tail. (^_^;)
Also I started looking too late, so I missed out on all of the
good Tokimeki Memorial books and badges that I would have wanted.
I only looked through half of the east building.
It was too crowded elsewhere and I was too tired..
There were a lot of calendars this time.
I hadn't noticed so many in the past.
One of the calendars by TFC Kikaku was a A4 sized, glossy color,
28 page beauty.
Each month had 2 pages (picture on one page, calendar on the other page).
The pictures were of El Hazard, Bakuretsu Hunter, Yuna, Tenchi Muyou,
Megami Paradise, Aa Megami-sama, Vampire Hunter, Ginrei, Sailor Moon,
There were also colorful desktop calendars of Aa Megami-sama and
I also got a 4 page color A4 sized calendar of Saint Tail.
The books that I got were mostly Saint Tail and Megami-sama.
Unfortunately there were too many ecchi Saint Tail.. (;_;)
There were a lot of Tenchi and Chacha books but I didn't go for them
There was plenty of cosplay as usual.
