I knew something like this will happen. It got a fandom before the anime was even announced...this doesn't surprise me anymore. LOL

Well when pretty much all of the promo stuff so far is pictures of the guys half naked, it already gives all the material needed for doujins.

Why would there be? Only Kuroko no Basket as far as I know has that problem.

It's like this at all japanese events with cosplays. Presumably its the fee to use the changing rooms, because if you cosplay, you need to get changed at the venue. In japan, its not only socially bizarre to rock up to the event itself in cosplay like people do in the west, t's actually against the con rules.
I told my japanese friends that in cons in America/Australia people travel to and from the venue in cosplay/even go to nearby mcdonalds etc in cosplay and they were completely shocked and said they couldnt even imagine something like that happening outside of Akihabara, and that even they, as huge anime fans, would feel embarassed witnessing it.

Its kind of funny watching people go into the changing room and then emerging as completely different people though, and then returning back at the end of the event to transform back.

Bracing for hundreds of posts debating sexism in the most pedantic way possible on both sides in 3... 2... 1...
