One Timepiece Every Fan Needs

One Piece Seiko watch

Take your place as pirate king with this Seiko watch that celebrates the 15th anniversary of One Piece. A recent survey (sorry, Japanese only) reveals that a higher yearly income makes you less likely to read Shonen Jump so I wonder who will be footing the 48,384 yen price tag.

Oh Miso Hungry

Marukome makes the highest quality miso using only organic ingredients, not to mention heart-warming anime commercials. Their latest has mom help her daughters cook for dad who works away from home.

Tokyo Ghoul teaser

Tokyo Ghoul has finished it's run in Young Jump but author Sui Ishida isn't done yet. The final volume of the manga and Ishida's art book come out on October 17th and the magazine's homepage teases that the details of his next project will be revealed with them. Maybe it's a crossover sequel with his old web manga? I'd mention the name, but Ami Blog is a family-friendly outlet.
