One quick last post before I leave for my trip to China. I’ll be away until the 26th, back just in time for the book launch party. Expect things to be quiet here until then, although I may occasionally update if I’m feeling like it — it looks like we’ll have net access, but I’m […]
The deluge of Arcade Mania news continues, this time to announce that the official book website is now up. Big thanks to Andrew Lee — the book’s art director — for his work on the site. Go on, and don’t forget to try and get one of those crane game prizes!

Well look at this, copies of Arcade Mania at Kinokuniya in Umeda, Osaka. The photo was taken by Brian, who spotted.

This month’s edition of the “Likemind Tokyo” creative gathering happens this coming Friday (September 19, 11:30-13:00), as always at Rhythm Cafe in Shibuya.
