Kill la Kill Last Episode Party!

| Event, Mamitan blog

This last Thursday the last episode of Kill la Kill had finally aired.

Retro Wednesday – Max Factory Aoba

| Max Factory

It’s been a while since my last retro Wednesday post, and while Aoba isn’t that old since he was released back in April of last year I thought I’d take a closer look at a figure that I constantly get requests for a re-release! As a figure collector I’m sure we all have our regrets, I know I do. My regrets are from when I miss pre-ordering a figure and then wanting it so badly later! I originally didn’t order Aoba either, I didn’t know much about Dramatical Murder so I didn’t jump to order him. But we have one at the office and I just keep staring at him longingly each time i see him! He’s just so handsome! [...] Read More »

Toon Workshop Headphones

| Event, Good Smile Company

  Wonfes was last weekend and along with all of the amazing figure announcements, were announcements of these headphones. I’ve been getting a TON of questions so I thought I’d go ahead and spill the beans! We’ve teamed up with FOSTEX and are making our own line of headphones called Toon Workshop! We plan to collaborate with lots of different artists, creators and properties. They are these super amazing transforming headphones and I’m proud to say I’ve been involved with the development team on them for quite some time.   While there is still plenty more information on them there isn’t much I can divulge just yet. My lips are sealed! However I can tell you we’re shooting for a [...] Read More »

Today in my adventures in Japan I visited the Sensō-ji temple in Asakusa. Went to visit to wish for a happy future and a good trip here in Japan. So far it’s been amazing!
