Okay, I’ll own up and admit to it: my attempt at 12 Years of Anime this time around has more or less been a flop, with only four total posts out of the designated twelve. However, I thought I would at least put out something appropriate since it is Christmas Day…
As you may know, from my two previous Zael in Japan posts, I was in Tokyo, which also means I was in Akihabara, and therefore, I ended up picking up a whole load of anime merchandise. Since Christmas is the time we open up and enjoy our presents, I thought I would share my budding anime loot collection, which in truth has only been in existence for a few months, starting with the MCM Comic Con back in October.
I hope you enjoy reading about and looking at my merchandise pictures, I’ll be updating over the next few days, as otherwise this would get incredibly long to read in one sitting..

Neon Genesis Evangelion Playing Cards
One of the more strange things I found, these card packs were on sale in some souvenir shop at the Summer Palace in Beijing, they were going for 10 Yuan (£1) each, so I grabbed the NGE one. I don’t know how much I was expecting from this, but I was pleasantly surprised. Take a look below at the sheer range of themed card packs they had for selection!
I was really quite impressed with the detailed lineart on each and every card, all unique in design.
Tokyo Skytree Evangelion
There is a whole load of strange Evangelion trinkets that serve all sorts of purposes, while a simple pen can’t really hold a candle to them (I’m sure there’s Eva candles!) I like this one for being specific to the Skytree store. Also, while not anime-related, check out this sweet Tokyo Skytree model I got!
And that’s it for the misc goods section, the next parts will be on the subsequent pages (to be updated!), enjoy!
