Comiket 74 – Comic Water

Konata approves of this!

While at Comiket 74, I came across one of the weirdest and yet somewhat  ‘smartest’ marketing ‘schemes’ by the kind hearted people above targeted at me otakus.

Sold at most of the vending machines scattered around Big Sight, I came across this, known as Comic Water.

What is this mysterious water… more info after the jump!


The first though I had was that it was meant to be used while doing your personal health care (a.k.a dolphin waxing).

Coupled with your latest issue of ‘Dengenki Hime’, ‘*ahem*ero*ahem*manga’ or even scans from your kind friends who have uploaded them on the internets, it keeps you hydrated while you have your dolphin at an excited state.

One bottle is meant to last for a session of dolphin waxing; so if you have the reusable dolphin docking interface port, you’ll probably have to get a lot more bottles ^^;


It also apparently has special minerals infused in the water itself which enhances your drawing and Japanese learning ability (For foreigners). You also get a free pillow, given by random by the vending machines (自動販売機 – Jidouhanbaiki). Not forgetting a +10 to otaku general skills.

Inserting your coins in a certain pattern allows you to get a free bottle as well.


This pretty much  explains why it got sold out at most of the vending machines scattered around Big Sight.

Too bad it was a limited comiket-only release item. If you were to choose between Comic water and normal mineral water, which would you prefer?

P.S I saw those school swimsuit and meido drinks while grabbing some books in Akiba the other day. Will try them out when I visit Akiba again ^^;
