• [EVENT] Doujin Market – Doujima Post-Event Review!


    The third instalment of Doujima was held at The Treetop at *SCAPE from 25 to 26 April 2015, and it was definitely a lively and vibrant event which captured the hearts of its visitors.

    Doujin Market, more commonly known as Doujima, is held twice a year and has been running since April 2014. Doujima is an event specially dedicated to showcasing artist’s works, be it fan-art or original pieces. The event has certainly grown much bigger than before, with over 30 circles exhibiting their art this time round.

    If you have not heard of the term “Doujin” before, it simply refers to self-published works, often by artists passionate about their craft. At Doujima, merchandise commonly exhibited included can badges, acrylic keychains, prints, posters and more.

Touken Ranbu merchandise could be seen at almost every circle, and some cosplayers could even be seen showing off their Toudan, or “Sword Boy” cosplay at the event.
