Start off your Spring Break with Viz's upcoming digital manga titles

Attack on Titan x Aqua Clara Promo has some Amazing Prizes

The increasingly popular Attack on Titan is partnering up with the Japanese water cooler provider Aqua Clara to wage war against dehydration. The link between killing titans and ensuring adequate hydration is extremely tenuous, but I don't want to be dehydrated when I'm fighting a 3 metre class of paper work.

Sip Tea like a Detective in the Conan Café

Does anyone remember Tower Records? The music retail store that got shut down due to internet piracy and mis-management. I only really remember them because waaay too many customers wanted to go there in Crazy Taxi. Well, Tower Records Japan is still going strong and will be undergoing a major make over to promote the new Case Closed movie "Sunflowers of Inferno".

Humble Weekly Bundle is Turning Japanese

The Humble Bundle is a collection of games often related to a theme that allows customers to pay what they want for the set. Usually there is an extra pair of games added in if you pay above the average amount. These bundles have been successful because they're cheap, DRM-free, and gives customers the choice of where their money goes.

SCANDAL up my Social Media

But it wasn't until I got onto Twitter when I started to see social media becoming a platform for celebrities to stay connected to fans and vice versa.

KFC and Potato Chips. Together at Last

There are some Japanese snacks that wouldn't fly in the west. Pocari Sweat has the connotation of drinking someone's perspiration, and their eclectic Kit Kat flavours can make some taste buds shudder. But this concept already has me salivating.

Enrol as a Virtual Exchange Student in Tokyo School Life
