Japan Trip 2013 – Akihabara P2/P3 + Roppongi

See Flickr for the complete photo sets Back to Akihabara for more shopping! Like in Akihabara P1, these are just a sample of pictures (see Flickr sets for the rest)… I spent a lot of my time cataloguing each store for my upcoming Akihabara Shopping Guide, so these aren’t as flashy as the first post. 2,376 total views, 1 views today

Japan Trip 2013 – Nakano Broadway

See Flickr for the complete photo sets Nakano Broadway is a shopping mall right outside the Nakano station and at the end of another long covered mall. It is an otaku shopping heaven as it is also the birthplace of Mandarake, the famous chain of second hand anime goods (“second hand” being stuff like “minor box damages” or “opened once”, not “mysterious sticky stuff all over”). 3,262 total views, no views today

Loot Backlog (Jan to Apr 2013)

So back in December, I decided to finally break the wait and buy myself the extremely rare Tsukibako box (Tsukihime + PLUS+DISC + Kagetsu Tohya) as a first-year-of-working, year-end bonus. So I started searching Mandarake and Yahoo Auctions Japan. Of course, while I was at it, I decided to order Mahoyo, then order the limited edition Fate/hollow ataraxia, then the limited edition Fate/stay night, then finish up my ヒロユキ TYPE-MOON doujinshi collection, and so forth.
