I’m sure those of you who check out the blog regularly would have noticed that I’ve not been as active of late. That’s because I’m on a trip to hunt for authentic anime and manga otaku culture, and retro video games in the electronic hub of the world, Japan.
One store which really stood out is he Super Potato retro video game store in Nipponbashi, Osaka. That place is a gamers heaven with old consoles ranging from the Sega Mega Drive to the Super Nintendo (SNES). It also had old games ranging from 80s – 90s popular games like Street Fighter 2 and Megaman (called Rockman here). Needless to say, I was very tempted.
Other than pop culture products and merchandise, my trip to Japan has been filled with great world heritage sites, an incredible trip to Universal Studios (where I got ‘eaten’ by an Attack on Titan titan) and a chance to see the Evangelion anime themed bullet train.
