I love a good snack to munch on throughout the day. I usually buy Japanese snacks from my local supermarket that has a handful of options. If I’m in Manhattan I would stop by a supermarket in China Town. I also used to order off a Japanese snack website that shut down a year or two ago. Cons are usually when I rack up on snacks. I now use a new website I want to introduce to you all if you wanted to order Japanese Snacks that aren’t around you locally.

This a continuation of yesterday’s post 12 Days of Anime: Netflix’s Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters. Godzilla: City on The Edge of Battle is part 2 of the series and it was so crazy that I really hope a part 3 comes out next year. I hate cliffhangers and this series really does have a great edge of your seat action then leaves a cliffhanger. Part 3 is going to be even bigger than this movie if Ghidorah shows up.

Spoilers Ahead!

Welcome to day 4 of the 12 Days of Anime and today I will be doing something a bit different. Japan is known for a lot of things.

I have to thank Alice for this one but a while back she sent me a YouTube compilation video for Sakeru Gummy. But before I dive into it, check out the video below.

12 Days of Anime: For the Love of Bulbasaur

To start off my contribution to 12 Days of Anime, I wanted to write about how I became a big fan of Bulbasaur. It’s an unusual story that led to a slight obsession over this Pokemon but I’m pretty sure someone out there is my kindred spirit on this one. Bulbasaur and their evolution’s are one of the best things I got from Pokemon. Oh! and Ash telling me to never give up but our focus is on this cutie. Continue reading

LCAC 2018: Over The Top Japanese Fashion Panel

This year I went into a panel that discussed the different Japanese styles that we can also see in the anime shows that we watch or, what people actually wear in Japan. It was reiterated that these styles are not to be confused with cosplay. The panel was moderated by Creep-P. It was a very interesting and educational panel. Many people confuse some of the styles with cosplay. There are several different style trends in Japan such as Dekora, Gyaru, Shironuri, Mori, Ishokuada, Visual Kei, Lolita, Manhera, and many more. Each style has its own uniqueness. The styles were created to break the social norm and allow people to be more free to express themselves.
