Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows hits Japan


Sometimes, I really really feel bad for the geeks of Japan. I mean sure, we all know that most of the things we love are birthed first on the mean streets of Akihabara and housed in the depths of Super Potato. Yet when Japan looks to the outside for its geek goods, it sometimes has to look for a very very long time before setting their sights on the prize.

Case in point, Harry Potter. Turns out those poor Japanese Potter-philes have been waiting all this time for he final installment of the Harry Potter series Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. The book finally hit stores today, July 23rd. Just how they've endured this long we're probably better off know knowing. Some things are just too sad and horrible.

To top it all off, just look at how abysmal the cover art is! Oh JK, what did these people ever do to you to make you treat them so badly? It's not like they were the ones who killedURK!
