    • Iori Nomizu
      Iori Nomizu What does voice actress Iori Nomizu (野水伊織) and Mirai Suenaga have in common? Well they will both be at the new Isetan renewal opening at Lot10 in Kuala Lumpur next week. Nomizu-san thought that she'd pop by Mirai Store Tokyo to check out the Smart Dolls where she took a quick look around the second floor too. For those who are not beknowist, […]

    • Akihabara October 2016
      Better late than never - photos taken a few weeks ago in Akihabara when it was still rather hot - now its just cloudy and muggy as Japan has been taking a battering from a countless number of typhoons. Folks ask me why I don't open a shop in Akihabara - easy to ask - not so easy to execute. At the moment, Mirai Store can make up to 20% of our total reve […]
    • Desk Diary 20160906
      This post was due to go up in May but then a bunch of stuff just happened (as it does) - all good stuff though like Anime Expo and a bunch of new license deals with Bandai Visual, Sunrise and more. Much has changed since we last had a look at Desk Diary - not just layout of the office, shop and home but also the equipment that I use which has in turn changed […]

Anything in this post tickle your fancy? At the moment I'm working wi […]

Otakon 2010. Baka to Photos to Anime. part 1

My second venture to Baltimore for the largest anime convention on East coast. Was waiting for it, and unlike last tear booked my ticket about two month in advance, thus sparing myself from 2 and a half hours queuing under the blazing sun.
This time just walked into the main entrance and grabbed that badge.

And so it went, three days non-stop fun.
Like I was mentioning in my older posts I’m very much into photography. Not professional at all, but rather just for fun.
Enjoy… Otacon 2010 from the inside of the iron shell.

Tank had Breached Into New York Anime Festival!

Believe it or not, this is my second anime convention so far. A bit more than a year ago, I dived into this anime fandom and since then I can’t surface. Everything, manga, anime, art, music, web resources and certainly conventions are so captivating and exiting to me.

So, here’s New York Anime Festival or NYAF for short. It had been held in Jacob Javits Center in New York City, same complex where annual New York Auto Show takes place. Complex itself is pretty huge, but as I’ve been previously warned by one of my friends NYAF occupies only one section of the whole center, and yes it is tiny.

First time being to an anime convention I went to Otacon in Baltimore, Maryland, and oh my goodness it was ginormous – 2 huge buildings topped off with thousands of people. I had a blast there. I’m not saying that NYAF isn’t worth visiting, it certainly is. It’s just a little less fun.

Jacob Javits Center as it looks from the corner of East 34th st. and 11th Avenue:
