Reitaisai Delayed Due to COVID-19

Reitaisai had previously they would attempt to go on as scheduled, as cancelling would place a huge financial burden on several parties, However, the Japanese government strongly urged for no large-scale events to be held for the immediate future a couple of days ago, prompting the venue itself to ask the organizers to reschedule, so they complied.

They're currently determining the new date for the event. Also, the catalogs which were released a few days ago can still be used.

I wish circle just release their stuff directly to Melonbooks/BOOTH instead and I would have just cancelled the event straight up. The Coronavirus is serious business.

A lot of circles are indeed doing that, selling what they were planning to release through Booth, Melonbooks, and the like.

Yeah. But not all of them it seems. Most seems to just want to wait it out because they want their stuff to be event-only.

I wouldn't say they "want" it to be event only; selling stuff on consignment does involve a lot of extra work that not everyone has time for.

In any case, the event committee has announced the new date will be May 17th, placing it roughly 2 weeks after Comiket.

Also don't forget that most circles might have already physical work which is now "dead stock". They invested money in the creation/printing and shipping.
