The Comic Market 92 (Comiket 92) event in Tokyo drew approximately 190,000 attendees on its third day on Sunday, for a total across all three days of 500,000 attendees.
Comiket does not have unique passes for visitors, so a person who attends all three days would be counted three times.
The convention drew around 160,000 attendees on its first day, and around 150,000 attendees on its second day. The first day total was up from last summer's 150,000 attendees at Comiket 90, but the second-day number was down from 170,000 last summer.
Tokyo Big Sight's West 2 Hall was closed at this summer's event due to expansion construction work to prepare for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
Comiket 93 will be held on December 29-31.
