Shirokuma Cafe

shirokuma_1

At last! I could read “Shirokuma Cafe” manga. It is quite popular, so I waited more than a half year to rent this comic series from my nearest library.

The cafe owner is Shirokuma-kun (Mr. Polar Bear).
Customers are both of animals and humans, no one has questions he’s a very good owner of this cozy cafe.
I love all the characters in this world. I’d definitely buy all the comics and need to check their anime next.

Tiger & Bunny DVD vol.1 for US

I was so excited when I found Tiger & Bunny DVD vol.1 for US in my post.
Waited for a while, because I’d love to learn English from these “showes”. I need to go to NYC on March but my listening/speaking skill is not far enough.
I watched this anime’s epsodes again and again, now I remember almost of lines of the characters in Japanese!
It makes me much easier to guess what they say in English. XD

And more, of course this DVD has Japanese version. If when I miss Wild Tiger’s Tokyo-accents, I can easily hear that too.
So happy not to borrow that from my nearest DVD-rental-shop again…maybe the shop staff remembers me as crazy fan (yeah it’s true, though).

Finally Domino’s sent me Tiger & Bunny Special Alarm Clock!
I ordered their pizza 3 times to enter this prize. Because the alarm is not ringing bell as usual, but 3 kinds of anime characters’ voice.

I’m so happy that Tiger (Kotetsu), Bunny (Bernaby) and Fire Emblem (Nathan) forces me to wake up every morning!

Lawson TIGER & BUNNY Campaign

TBfile_1

I’m visiting nearest Lawson almost everyday, because now they’re collaborating with TIGER & BUNNY.
Once or twice in an hour, the characters from the anime “speaks” shop announcements all over Lawson branches.

And when you buy 2 Calbee snacks, you can get a anime-illustrated file… it’s too hard for me to choose only one from 6 different designs.

Why Calbee? “Dragon Kid” one of the hero is sponsored by that company!
