Koomori-chan

koomorichan_1

I got a spooky-cute koomori-chan (tiny batty) plushie created by Keiko Miyata.
I’m totally in love with its red and orange odd eyes, stripy tail, and holey wings.

Not just only a plushie, but it has brooch pin on the back. Tiny bell tinkles when we walk, so much fun to go out with it!

You can see Miyata-san’s creation on her website. Also she created a part of Kyary Pamyu Pamyu’s dress for her world tour. :)

Little Witch Academia animemirai Exhibiton

It became a big news in Japan when the anime company Studio TRIGGER got a huge successful funded on Kickstarter. Their first cute girl witch story shown on YouTube was amazing. All of backers waiting for the 2nd movie.

I went to Little Witch Academia animemirai exhibition in 3331. We could enjoy over 300 original arts, backgrounds, human-size witches boards flying around the place, movie of how-to-make anime etc… The exhibition was just awesome!

One day in the afternoon at Odaiba in Tokyo

My friend and I went to see as life-sized Gundam in Odaiba.
We were really moved because he had a tremendous impact.

And, we had a break at Godiva cafe and Miso Ramen no Yoshino in Aqua city.
We had very good time with very good foods.

cafe & bar CHARACRO

Finally I could go “cafe & bar CHARACRO”! CHARACRO is a shortened form word of “CHARACTER” and “CROSSING”, it means like fiction characters are crossing over the real world. The place is really unique and quite popular for now. We need to be elected draw lots on their website to go there. Their main motif is anime or tokusatsu, and the theme changes within a definite period of time.

Their first theme of there is my favorite anime Tiger and Bunny.

The cafe interior is looks like “Hero’s Bar” – the bar appears in the anime popped up to real world, and food and drink menu is name after the characters.
Waitress and waiters also acts like they came from the anime world! They call us “Hero TV assistant producers(TV show’s name in Tiger and Bunny)” and gave us employee ID card, we should be a assistant producer of one of anime superheroes in there. It was very funny experience.

I and my friend got 10 coins to vote when we ordered foods and drinks. And we voted to all heroes/dark hero – the inquiry of the week was “Who’s the best superhero to spend Christmas with?”

Merry Christmas!
