Mainichi Newspaper's Mantan website reports that Comic Market, the largest manga-related convention, hosted 550,000 attendees during its 72nd run on August 17–19. This is the largest attendance figure yet reported for this convention or any convention of its kind. About 200,000 attendees came on Sunday to the dōjinshi marketplace at Tokyo's Big Sight convention center, adding to the daily totals of 180,000 on Saturday and 170,000 on Friday. Errata: Dates corrected. Thanks, AstroNerdBoy.
