Anime Cars Festival in Odaiba

Wednesday, November 12th, 2008

A festival in Japan called “Itasha G Fesuta” took place last Sunday, November 9  in Japan which featured around 450 cars. It was organized by a popular Japanese graphical magazine. The term “itasha” refers to cars which have been illustrated upon by anime, manga and video game character decals. “Itasha” is also a transliteration of “Itariasha” (Italian car) which often connotes fashionable design.

ToyCon 2008

Wednesday, June 18th, 2008

I visited the Philippine ToyCon last June 14, 2008. It was a two-day event but I didn’t bother visiting again the next day because it will drain my wallet. Compared to the previous years’ ToyCon, it was always the same with a lot of retail booths. If you’re an anime fan though, you’ll like this event.

Here are some pics for the non-anime fans. Batman is #1!!!
