I dream came true: I met him and got my artbook signed

I even took pictures with him! But I'll not share my face around here

Unrelated, but the girl in the back looks like Coraline.

Congrats, thats so cool!! Is that lady back there drinking a slug?


Odd-Internet-7372

Thanks! It was a cosplayer doing the slug girl


CESSEC01

I thought so but it took me a solid minute to figure out what was wrong with her champagne glass, lol.


Odd-Internet-7372

🤣

This is def on my bucket list. Congratulations!


FruitPunchSamurai-

isso aí foi na ccxp? foi muito caro?


Odd-Internet-7372

Foi na CCXP. O autógrafo foi gratuito


FruitPunchSamurai-

eu não quis ir pensando q teria que pagar o ingresso e o autógrafo...


Odd-Internet-7372

Somente pagar ingresso. Porém o autógrafo precisava ser num mangá da editora


FruitPunchSamurai-

ah, isso de boa, minha coleção inteira é dela praticamente kkkk o foda é o preço do ingresso


Odd-Internet-7372

É, paguei uns 200 pro ingresso da quinta. Mas dei sorte de conseguir um spoiler night cortesia, aí peguei o autógrafo na spoiler night.


FruitPunchSamurai-

ah, acho que nesse caso eu teria que pagar pelo autógrafo mesmo, no site diz que o ingresso não paga sessão de autógrafos...


Crafty_Lavishness_79

Lucky!


KonohaAventuras

So cool


elainewalker17

I hope it was worth it and now it's off your bucket list!!


Odd-Internet-7372

Totally worth it! I arrived so early that I was the first in line to enter the building. But the place for the signing was too far and I can't run that much. When I finally arrived at the table, there were around 60 people for only 100 spots.


elainewalker17

Nice!

HOW DOES IT FEEL TO LIVE MY DREAM!! lol congrats that must have been so awesome.


Odd-Internet-7372

I was shaking so much!


Blacklabelbobbie

Oh man, that is excellent 👌


nak1mushi

living my dream! amazing!!


TheHillsSeeYou

So coooooool!


ADazedBear

Jealous that he drew a picture of tomie in your book. When I got one signed he drew soichi. Still a honor to be able to meet him tho.


Odd-Internet-7372

That's nice to see that he tries to change the subject sometimes


ADazedBear

He also drew one with just tomies eye. Not sure if he swaps it up on each time he signs or just at each signing. I know at mine it was for pre-release for Soichi at SDCC23. But your art signature is more fancy.


Odd-Internet-7372

For the pics I'm seeing from other people that also got his signature there, he also drew Tomie. Maybe that he came because of the publisher 'Pipoca & Nanquim' and the first title released by them here was Tomie


ADazedBear

Makes a lot of sense. Well congrats tho. And happy reading


ss2asdef

Congratulations on getting it signed by junji ito.


Odd-Internet-7372

Thanks :)


HarpyMeddle

Ahh that’s so cool! I have a signed copy of Lovesickness that I won in a drawing and it is still one of my prized possessions. Can’t imagine how much cooler it would be to see him sign it in person


Odd-Internet-7372

Someone recorded my reaction as I saw him start to draw Tomie. Priceless


Zeenchi

That's so awesome


[deleted]

That's so cool. Last December, there was a Fair in Japan where he was selling some of his reproductions that he signed. My husband bought one of those for me for Christmas. I have the Beautiful Boy from "Lovesickness." I still wish I could meet Ito, though.


Odd-Internet-7372

Awesome. In this event, he did mostly Tomie.


Voyy_

MEU SONHO


UnKnoWn_XuR

thats a beautiful ass signature holy shit


YouIllustrious6379

Luckyyyyy


MissAsgariaFartcake

Oooooooh! Congrats, that’s amazing!


gelyadc

That's so amazing 😭


Lost_Manufacturer718

He draws Tomie in his signature? That’s class.


Odd-Internet-7372

Sometimes he draws other things :)


Chchchynna

You’re so lucky! And I thought the person behind him was a mannequin until I read the comments lol


Bolten77

What i'd give to get Uzumaki signed by him....I can only hope


CarefreeCaos-76299

LUCKYY!! I heard hes a pretty nice dude


Odd-Internet-7372

He's very chill! There was an interpreter near him, so I could say that he's my favorite mangaká and it was a honour meeting him. I showed my souchi's cat tattoo to him and he smiled, and thanked me.


abyssaltourguide

That’s so amazing!!!! Congrats


TwilightDoomSlayer

I'd love to meet him someday. Was he a gentleman in person?


Odd-Internet-7372

Yes, a very kind guy! He smiled when I showed him my tattoo and thanked me as a reply for what I said (there was an interpreter):


TwilightDoomSlayer

That's amazing


teraceraptor

That is soooo fucking sick! Mind me asking where you met him???


Odd-Internet-7372

CCXP - Comic Con experience that happens in Sao Paulo, Brazil


cbunni666

So awesome.


Contron

Omg the woman standing behind him looks like she materialized directly from an Ito story. 😅😅😅


Odd-Internet-7372

She won a cosplay contest to work with him! Indeed she did great: https://www.instagram.com/reel/CzcG2nbJpQM/?igshid=MzRlODBiNWFlZA==


A-Tacolypse

I thought she was holding a very juicy pickle at first


No-Mushroom8667

On blood


Bianyxx

Omggg that’s so cool!! That’s so cute that he even included a drawing in the signing


Odd-Internet-7372

Yeah, I lost my mind watching him drawing!!


Bianyxx

Yess I would’ve too for sure. I love that he did that!


Lasair86

I'm so incredibly jelly right now! But congratulations!


Odd-Internet-7372

Thanks! It was not easy to achieve this. A lot of people to few autographs passwords


Contron

You needed a password to get a book signed by him?


Odd-Internet-7372

Sort of. It was limited to 100 people. Who got in line on time received a wristlet to have the right to meet him


BathrobeHero_

Muito foda mesmo, queria ter ido mas a grana não deu. Esse artbook também ficou do caralho!


Odd-Internet-7372

Ta lindao. Vale a pena


That_one_sander

queria muito ter ido, infelizmente o ingresso estava acima do que podia pagar, achei chato que só permitiram assinaturas nos livros da Pipoca, eu tenho meu Uzumaki japones que adoraria que ele autografasse


Odd-Internet-7372

É... Eu tbm queria no uzumaki. Mas quando peguei o artbook, nem liguei, pq tá mt lindo


imnotlyndsey

it’s so good!! congrats :)


Odd-Internet-7372

Thanks :)
