A Snippet of Japan ( K-On, Cosplay Roms & Butler Cafe)

When I was in in Japan for the Animax Musix Concert 2011 last November, I visited a couple of Anime Paradise and picked up quite a bit of Brochures. It’s not much but storing pictures of them privately in my HDD seemed pointless so I decided to share the random Anime stuffs I saw in Japan. Hope you guys enjoy it!

When I went over in November, K-On was everywhere! From big pillar Posters to collaborating with the Konbini (Convenience Shop) Franchise , Lawson. This was all to promote the launch of the Movie which opened in theatres 3rd Dec 2011.

The promotional brochure and stamp booklet I got at A-Cos, Ikebukuro.

The Stamp Booklet is a really cute activity for fans to play with. Basically you go to the selected place, pick up a copy of the booklet and venture to other participating outlets with a stamp machine for you to stamp on.

This picture is taken in a Lawson in Ikebukuro. Notice the Stamp device on the top right hand corner? Yea, you place your booklet (or should I call it a card ?) and stamp into one of the allocated circle/space.

Some of the Cosplay/ Butler brochures I picked up at A-Cos.
