Starting this weekend, Comic Con Indonesia 2022 has finally officially started. As the largest pop culture event in the country, this is undoubtedly a special place for comics, toys, movies, games and lifestyle lovers to meet. To be honest, today is the author’s first time to participate in the event since his debut in 2015, and the experience I got is quite satisfactory.
So, as some of you know, the purchasing of Comic Con Indonesia has been absent for two years due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and although we are not completely out of protocol maintenance, the course of this event has been very favorable. Starting with a more orderly queue process, to ample space for visitors to explore the booths without getting too crowded. This doesn’t mean the event had a low number of visitors, it’s just that the author himself spent more time in the morning and then the number of visitors continued to grow and fill the entire event.
The first day of rundown events started at 10am with the opening and lasted a full 12 hours, on the main stage, the Shojo Complex team greeted the visitors with an immediate opening ceremony and a short concert. The rhythm events for the main stage were well organized and on time so that visitors wouldn’t get bored, especially how each segment entertained meaningful insights involving many of the featured stars.
The experience of visiting the entire venue is also quite satisfying, as the booths are neatly arranged, a variety of special pop culture genres are available, and there is free space for visitors to walk without having to crowd with other people. Especially the booth for the latest movies is my favorite as each booth is designed to be adapted to the theme of each movie and is one of the best photo spots. Dungeons & Dragons: Glory of Thieves also has a booth designed to look like a classic tavern, plus there’s a Halloween ending designed to look like a haunted house, and more.
For toy collectors, there are already many stalls selling figures from different brands, including special merchandise from other creators. The point is, the event really has all the amenities and attractions for every pop culture, which is one of the reasons the event is more flexible in bringing all types of communities together. This also includes fans of virtual YouTubers who have become increasingly dominant since the last Indonesia Comic Con, the event brought together creators as diverse as Moona Hoshinova and Kobo Kanaeru from Hololive, who also joined Mythia Batford from GHOSTY Jared of COMIC.
At least that’s a brief summary of Indonesia Comic Con 2022’s first day of sourcing. The impression as a first-time attendee was basically quite satisfying, and hopefully the next day will bring the same heady excitement. If you are interested in visiting the event, Comic Con Indonesia 2022 will still be held at the Jakarta Convention Center (Hall B) in Senayan until tomorrow, October 2nd.You can monitor more complete and updated details about the event on their official website here.
