Otaku follows the rule

It’s too difficult to buy all Doujinshi that you want because many people want to buy them, so the event in the morning is sometimes compared to battle field. That’s why stuffs they bought during this event are called reword. Amazingly some people make long line through the very cold (or hot) night to buy rare Doujinshi. As soon as the event starts, they are sold out by them. But officially we are NOT allowed to stay there through the night because it’s violation of the regulation.
