Welcome to Shibuya-Cho
I know you love it so I figured I would start this week by letting you all know that Berserk v.18 is in on Wednesday this week. I mention this because people have been asking almost every day for two weeks. I gotta say, Berserk has actually been coming out pretty frequently compared to how it used to be (not to mention other Dark Horse manga titles *cough* HellSing *cough*).
Ooh! And in the world of toys and stuff, this past week we got a surprise item. Apparently we were able to get in this really awesome statue of Ryuk from Death Note. He's done up all in vinyl and a fur collar, and of course expertly painted in that special way only Japanese toy companies care to do in his dark blues and grays. From his perched base to his head the statue is about 12" tall (though he is sitting hunched over with his arms dangling). Here's the fun part. He comes with detachable wings that stretch out way over his head. And should you want to take them off, he also comes with a back plate that covers the holes the wings plug into. Overall a really nice piece for only a hundred bucks.
And finally, calendar season has arrived folks. I know you're thinking to yourself, "But it's only July." But you know as well as I do that you'll only put it off and suddenly it's April 2008 and you figure to hell with it, you'll wait 'til next year. That being said, now's the time! So far we've gotten a super cute Domo-kun calendar, a nifty new Inu Yasha one (which is much better than last years if you ask me), and an awesome new Bleach calendar. Of course there will be plenty more to come. Also of course, we have a bunch of non-anime calendars in the other parts of the store, but this is "Welcome to Shibuya-cho" for a reason. We don't talk about that stuff here. So use this time to pick up a new series, or catch up on a series you're lagging behind in. 'til next week!
