2008 Taipei International Book Exhibition: Different creations at Comic Hall

Monday, February 25, 2008

Since the 2008 Taipei International Book Exhibition, which ended recently, made several significant differences this year, the arrangements of Comic Hall (TWTC Hall 2, a.k.a Comic Pavilion) showcased its differences with "different style reading style" and "growth of reading population".

Cosplay Competition, a stage for comic readers and gamers

Cosplay Competition in 2008.

After several good reactions from comic, game, and culture industries at the 1st holding last year, the organizer (TBFF) decided to hold this competition again this year. Comparison to last year, the competition level was apparently improved with participants' performances. Due to this factor, the juries got a damn headache to decide "who the champion will be".

According to the official data, participated cosplayers and teams preferred to dress as some characters from Japanese Anime and Games like Naruto, Death Note, Bleach, and Haruhi Suzumiya, or to dress as some glove puppetry characters. In this competition, it showed a summary of the multiple comic and game culture and a steady population from comic and game readers.

Different reading senses with combination from different elements

First-ever "Starry Night Party" Seminar with combination from different elements.

Since the "Quality of Reading" was promoted by government officials, academical and medical professionals after the "Spiritual Books Area" set from 2003, it was progressively respected by the public after several changes from people's lifestyle like food, living, clothing, and reading.

With a great change of life quality, some hi-end recording companies like Jingo Records, Wind Records, and Welchan Music, tried to make their stages to promote several easy-listening music CDs at this exhibition. By the way, to change the public's mind on the Comic Hall, the TBFF decided to hold two "Starry Night" seminars focused on wine-tasting and classical music. Those two seminars attracted several music and wine fans participating in.

With fans' participation and new designs on the Comic Hall, the TBFF successfully turned the public image of Comic Hall from "a simple hall with signing events and consuming" to "a mixed hall with reading senses" this year.
