When I was in high school and just starting to get into anime, find merchandise of my favourite shows was like finding a needle in a haystack. Outside of conventions, not many stores sold anime stuff, the only one near me was a stationary store called that I’m pretty sure sold unlicensed products. So I… Continue reading A Guide to Otaku Shopping in Sydney
I confess, during my trip to Japan I bought way too much otaku merchandise. But rather than show every single thing I bought, I thought it’d be easier and more enjoyable to compact it into my top five favourite purchases. There’s quite a variety within the top five, and surprisingly enough, four of the five… Continue reading My Top 5 Otaku Souvenirs from Japan!

You may remember my non-stop posts from when I was in Japan last year and earlier this year. While I had a lot of fun writing about my experience, I struggled to share the merchandise I had bought.

To make my dream a reality, I decided to comb through Play-Asia’s sale lists to find the best deals. Just remember, every click… Continue reading The Best Of Play-Asia’s Summer Sale
Following on from my otome post, I thought I’d share my experience shopping for yaoi and general Boys Love items. Unfortunately, this post will be quite a bit shorter than my other Japan posts. There really isn’t too much BL merchandise in Japan, definitely more than the West but not as much as any fujoshi… Continue reading It’s Fujoshi Time! Enjoying Boys Love in Tokyo

As many of you otome fans will know, it’s near impossible to get any really nice goods overseas, and when you can find them, they’re insanely overpriced. So while I had the chance, I figured I’d spend… Continue reading The Otome Experience in Tokyo!
During my vacation in Tokyo, I’ll be staying at a hotel in Ikeburo. It’s quite a big travel hub and has sometimes been referred to as the ‘female Akihabara’. Although I did see both men and women in every shop I visited, so not quite sure on the validity of that statement! You may have… Continue reading A Day of Otaku Shopping in Ikebukuro!
Hi there! If you follow me on Twitter you probably saw me contemplating quitting my job. I plan to do so on my next shift this week.
