No Alternative Show on Sat. Nov. 26th. But... ;)

November 25, 2016

Ehime & Matsuyama Sugoimonohaku 2016On November 26 (Sat) & 27th (Sun), Ehime Prefecture & Matsuyama City will hold a special event called "Ehime & Matsuyama Industrial Festival 2016" to introduce and promote their local products and merchandizes at Shiroyama Park (Literary Castle Park) right in front of the Matsuyama Castle. Over 100,000 people come and visit this event every year, and many local stores, companies exhibit their products and services.

As a part of the event, the Ehime International Agricultural Exchange Association which I attended their international program over 30 years ago, will be hosting a Facebook Live show to promote their international training program in EU & US for young Japanese people. There will be interviews with those who completed their 12 - 15 months overseas programs and share their experiences and thoughts on the programs. These ex-trainees will bring and introduce their agricultural products they grow or sell from their farms at the interview.

The livestream schedule will start from 10 AM to 3 PM JST on both this Sat. & Sun. November 26th & 27th. Come, visit us at the stream, and see how we live in Japan :)

[In Talk with Shuki] Ultraman Geed has started airing and what is your thoughts about?

July 23, 2017

Ultraman is a franchise I never really thought I would get into it. When I hopped into the tokusatsu fandom again there was no currently airing series, and I was just so busy with Sentai and Rider. Ain't nobody got time for Ultraman, right?

I'm glad I was wrong. After a rocky start with trying to get into the franchise with Ultraman Ginga, a good old website called Crunchyroll announced they'd be simulcasting the newest series, Ultraman X. I was hooked. Flash foward to now, with Ultraman Geed being the newest series, and Ultraman once again has me hooked in both their toys and their show.

[In Talk with Shuki] Toy Package differences between US & Japan

July 16, 2017

Packages. Some people collect them, some people toss them, but there’s no denying that some great looking packaging can catch your eye on the toy shelf. While there are certainly some American toys that have some wonderful art on their boxes, Japan has the United States beat.

Most people reading this are super familiar with your standard Japanese packaging. especially in the world of Tokusatsu. You can always expect some bright, colorful packaging with group shots adorning the package, usually with the owner of the toy with a big image on the front. It’s bright and captures your attention instantly.
