The Comic Market 88 (Comiket 88) event in Tokyo drew approximately 180,000 attendees on its first day on Friday, August 14.

Attendance was up from Comiket 86's first-day count of 170,000 attendees last summer. Comiket 87, which was held this past winter, also attracted 180,000 visitors on the first day.

Around 11,700 doujin circles (groups of self-published artists) participated in the event on Friday.
