I want a Muji Hut. Sure, it’s rather pricey at 3 million yen (around $30,000), which includes the construction costs, but still, I imagine this little thing somewhere on a mountain, to relax in. They go on sale this fall (Japan only).

The Tokyoiter project just debuted two new covers by the YamanoteYamanote duo of Julien Mercier and Julien Wulff.
I love this illustration by A. Melicart of Min Min, a character in the upcoming Nintendo fighting game ARMS. Via this tweet.
I loved this movie so much back in the day, and watched it countless times.

I remember being quite interested in watching this Korean animated film when it got announced last year (even though I’m pretty tired of seeing zombies in whatever form of media), and then had sorta forgotten about it. I watched it the other night, and wow, this is a really good movie. The animation is really […]
After binging season 2 recently (and loving it to bits), I just couldn’t help but check in on season 3 (even though these days I prefer to wait for a series to be done its season before watching it). The first episode was pretty good, but oh man, episode 2, with the return of Los […]
