Ascii Media Works - the folks who recently bought us Oreimo and a load of other anime titles. They publish a ton of magazines n books in Japan are are part of Kadokawa group. We've already taken a look at the Ascii offices down on one of the lower floors and today we get to look at the goodies on the 5th floor - they got a load of their publications in a large meeting area displayed with a load of merchandise too.

This is comrade Yukina-san who I work with on Tokyo Kawaii Magazine. First met the folks from Ascii when they invited me to be on their radio channel early last year. Have been working with them on various projects since then - one of which will be revealed at Anime Expo 2011 and the other project is a book which I need to announce soon.
