With Comiket’s return, so does his otaku blood anime poster blood drive.
Donors get three posters this year, which helps us estimate the value of otaku blood.
It has been two years since the last Comiket, which is usually a twice-yearly event but has been on hiatus since December 2019 due to repeated coronavirus-related cancellations and postponements. Fingers crossed, however, This month will mark the return of Japan’s biggest doujinshi (self-published manga) event, as Comiket 99 is set to take place on December 30 and 31..
With two years of pent-up demand, you can expect otaku money to flow into vendor lobbies, and Comiket’s organizers also hope otaku’s blood will flow with the return of his cooperative blood drive with the Red Cross. Like the past years, those who wish to donate blood will be rewarded with anime / game character art posters. This year’s donors will receive a set of three, one for Surrobe Cardfight Vanguard…
… one for the Hololive players quartet of virtual YouTubersâ¦
… and one for Alice Gear Aegis.
A blood donation center will be set up in front of the Panasonic Center building, located a short walk from the Tokyo Big Sight convention center where the Comiket will be held. However, the poster contest will run from December 30 to January 31 at Red Cross blood donation centers across Japan, so even otaku who do not participate in Comiket can still contribute / benefit from the campaign.
Alternatively, those who want to participate but cannot or do not want to donate blood can also donate money, such as Hololive design can be purchased directly as a tapestry online here, the profits being donated to the Red Cross. Incidentally, this also allows us to do a rough estimate of the value of otaku blood. The purchase price of a single Hololive tapestry is 2,750 yen (US $ 23.90), but a blood donation of 400 milliliters (13.5 ounces) earns you Three posters, so you could say that the value of the blood donation is 8,250 yen, or 20,625 yen per milliliter.
In other words, 750 milliliters, the amount of liquid a standard-size bottle of wine can hold, would be worth 15,469 yen, which makes otaku blood as valuable as some fairly good quality vintages.
These numbers are only estimates, however, as the 72.8-centimeter (28.7-inch) fabric tapestry is larger than the 59.4-centimeter Red Cross paper posters. Either way, the exact price for otaku blood will always remain fluid, so consult with a financial planner before attempting to sell yours on the open market, and if you are planning to attend an upcoming doujinshi event, you may want to -be consult this label. reminder of a doujin artist.
