August 19th, 2006

We now have in stock Chirashi from the original Japanese theatrical releases of Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi at $7 each. Two designs are available for each film. These are proving to be very popular but our supply is limited, so get them while you can!

My personal favourite is Empire Strikes Back design B (fourth image above) – I just had to grab one for myself and get it framed 🙂

Popular Japanese Movie Chirashi

August 15th, 2006

Chirashi for Japanese movies are becoming increasingly popular with our eBay Buyers.
Does this have anything to do with them getting better exposure overseas?
We’d be very interested to hear what Japanese movies have been hits in the US and Europe in recent months.

Lights Out!

August 14th, 2006

You may or may not have heard about the huge power cut in Tokyo this morning, which affected around 800,000 households and caused huge disruption to businesses and the transport system.

The power cut was caused by a crane being transported up the old Edo river on a barge that hit some electrical cables running over the water.
Seems like the operator made a gross misjudgment about how much space he had to play with! Who would have thought that this could cause such a catastrophe?!
We too lost power for about an hour but no damage was done.

Luckily most people are on their summer holiday this week, due it being the festival of  O-Bon. The outcome could have been a lot worse if it was a regular workday.
