Kawaii

He is a lonely depressed burnt loaf of bread… how cute can you get!  Kogepan from San-x is the ultimate kawaii character with a surreal and slightly dark twist!

I am Kogepan. I was from a bakery shop in Hokkaido. My bakery shop is very famous in Japan because the red bead buns that it churns out are so delicious that only 20 of such type are made each day. I was supposed to be a delicious red bean bun too, but an unfortunate accident had  happened…

Vampire Lust

This traditional Japanese print is old enough that it is in the public domain. It shows the vampire cat of Nabeshima killing the girlfriend of the prince of Hizen.

Recently i have developed a love for all thing gothically vampire. I have fallen in love with Edward, I am addicted to HBO’s True Blood and hooked on vampire anime… but nothing beats the original Stoker thriller. So i am in love with this T designed by Sam Silverstone from SIXPACK FRANCE:

Only 33 EUR!

Stylistically Retro: Kaiba

Image

This animation by Japanese creator Masaaki Yuasa is being hailed a classic great, not only for 2008 but of all time. The visual imagery is a throwback to 1970s animation, with its simple and touching designs. Something seen as childish and cheap, but in Kaiba is transformed into something stylistically retro and chic.

Not only does the animation catch your eye but the story line delivers something new, abstract and delicious.  Kaiba is essentially a science fiction love story, set in a world where memories can be transferred to new bodies and even sold.  Kaiba, the main character, awakes to find he has no memory, as we watch him travel across space in search of some kind of origin. 

This animation won a prize in excellence for animation at the Japan 2008 Arts Media Festival.

It’s worth the watch.
