Usually, Kamen Riders would travel on bikes, but this time, they took the train yo! They won’t be alone, as the lovely Miss Rina Akiyama, will be hiding out somewhere on a decked-out Ginza subway line train through May 9, as part of a promotional tie up with Tokyo Metro for the film Kamen Rider The Movie – Cho Den-ou Trilogy!
Last Sunday was even crazier as two hundred fans swarmed to Ueno station to take a joyride on the train for its first run and watch performances by Akiyama and other “Kamen Rider” characters. One excited fan commented, “I think I’ll ride the subway more often from now on.” Good for the ol’ chap, because who knows after this, he’ll get to meet Ultraman?
Greetings, Gundam fans all over Malaysia! If you had missed the event at Odaiba Island of the life-size Gundam RX-78 last year, do not fret! Just last Saturday, a theme restaurant based on the popular Japanese sci-fi animation series ‘Mobile Suit Gundam’ had open in Tokyo’s Electric City, Akihabara! Dubbing the name GUNDAM CAFE, visitors can watch various videos providing information about the popular animation series, which began on television 31 years ago, while trying foods and deserts featuring its key characters and futuristic settings in the 60-seat maid cafe-like restaurant! Female staff member dressed in the uniforms of either from the Earth Federation or the Principality of Zeon will also act as models in the cafe, posing for photographs with visitors (you do not want to miss this!)
So remember fellas, if you drop by Akihabara, do drop by the Gundam Cafe! It’s just behind the Akihabara JR Station, you can’t miss it once you get off the train there
*well, there’s no life-size mobile suit to look at, but hey, instead of just looking, now you could be drinking! (gundam soda lol)
