I'd prefer longer skirts myself, but then again, I find the idea of school uniforms to be rather strange since there's really no value added benefits from school uniforms in the first place.
I agree with all that's been said. If you're tired, you're tired and no surface is too bad that you wouldn't want to just chill and take a nap. That's an illustration of Japan's monstrous work ethic though, which is really unhealthy in my opinion.
Really wish these sorts of places were more ubiquitous where I live since having a local shop for this would help out so much instead of being a nightmare to have to pay customs and shipping while hoping the goods don't get lost or are hijacked by pirates. And even if they don't the shipping costs are pretty obscene :(
Definitely looks nice. I think the winking eye gives it some degree of charm that you don't quite get from the Gift figure.
Living in such a location would be great if for no other reason than the fact that I wouldn't have to pay such high fees whenever I import Japan-related stuff like soundtracks and figurines. Life would be much more convenient in any case.
Now it just needs to have lasers and be packed to the brim with missiles and its use as a weapon will be complete!
Congratulations! Now I'll have to give one of these future contests a shot to test my luck!
Seems like it could be a hit or miss. Unless the food item is extremely easy, the prep work would be prohibitive to making this work. It's a nice advance, but that's about all you can say for the time being.
Always good to see someone be able to live that dream, even if the costs of doing business in Japan can be high at times. Looks like they're starting to get the right idea that to break out of their recession, they need to innovate, and that means encouraging young companies like yours to grow.
Ahhh, if only more stores like this one existed here in the States, that would make things much more convenient. Too bad though since the costs of imports are just prohibitively high with shipping costs and whatnot.
