Manga author and illustrator Yoshitoshi Abe photographed Comic Market 82 (Comiket) in panorama this past weekend. He composited his photographs to create interactive 360-degree panorama views of the event. The pictures were taken of Tokyo Big Sight's East Halls 1-3 — just some of the halls Comiket uses — during setup and a relatively quiet hour of the event. (210,000 attended this summer's third day.)
ABe came to the event as part of the Mutekei Fire/Romance dōjinshi circle. ABe is known for his distinctive character designs in works such as Serial Experiments Lain, Texhnolyze and Haibane Renmei.
