Fashion Rebellion

Homura jeans

Is that a magical girl in your pocket, or are you just happy to see Cospa's new Homura blue jeans? If the butt print and awesome purple stitching didn't sell you, how about this: The inside pocket uses a cleaner cloth material to keep your cell phone looking shiny and new even after rubbing against your thigh all day.

Put a Smile in Your Heart

Sora Tokui Nico Yazawa VA

Did everyone remember Nico Yazawa's birthday yesterday? Japanese fans sure did and they bombed voice actress Sora Tokui with fan art of their muse. Sora even got in on it by posting her best Nico-Nico-Ni pose. Check her Twitter for more birthday wishes and kawaii illustrations.

The Master of IDOLM@STER

IDOLM@STER standees

Woah, what's going on here! Did the girls of 765 Productions hold a secret live in the back streets of Tokyo? No, it turns out that Twitter user @kaneko_hk went all out and bought all 13 of the IDOLM@STER cardboard standees we introduced back in May. At 15,000 yen a pop that's more dough than I care to roll out. Any producers out there with pockets deep enough to challenge his claim to fame can head to Koenji's otaku bar, Area 51.
