Today we bring you yesterday’s news from Japan and Asia.
Japanese otaku knows where to buy the best display items.
Recently, our Japanese-language reporter Saya Togashi participated in the Kimetsu no Yaiba Gotoge Koyoharu exhibition which will be held from October 26th to December 12th at the Mori Art Center Gallery in the Roppongi Hills Complex in Tokyo.
As fans know, Kimetsu no Yaiba is known as the Demon Slayer overseas. It is a very popular anime series originally drawn by Japanese artist Gotoge Koyoharu.
As a big fan of Demon Slayer, Saye couldn't help but buy a large wave of goods from the exhibition gift shop, but after returning home, she found herself in a dilemma that many otaku have experienced in her life-how to show all her art Technical products.
While looking for a solution to the problem online, she obtained an inside story from the otaku community about the 100-yen chain Seria, which has a corner dedicated to collectors’ collections. Fortunately, Saya had a Seria not far from her, so she was able to stop and pick up everything she needed to show off her Demon Slayer's trophy.
These Seria products are called "Wotatomo Series" ("Friends of Geek Series") or "My Collection". These Seria products are designed to meet the needs of otaku, and Saya is impressed by the range available.
▼ First, she purchased "My Collection A4 Clear Holder Stand", which is very suitable for displaying transparent files.
Transparent files are a beautiful and affordable way to collect manga or animation artwork, making them a standard purchase method for many otakus. The only problem is that they are not always easy to display, because the frame can be bulky and expensive, but this Seria product is designed for transparent documents, with a slim and lightweight design, with a choice of hanging or standing, vertical or horizontal.
However, the best thing about this product is the claws in each corner, even if you choose to put it in a plastic cover to prevent dust, you can easily slide the file in and fix it in place without damage it.
▼This is the so-called "Cinderella fit". An item fits perfectly, just like Cinderella's glass shoes in a fairy tale slip onto her feet.
You can see that these products are designed in full consideration of the needs of the otaku, as is the next product "My Collection Keyring Display Cabinet".
See how perfectly these key chains are displayed! Saya couldn't help but let out a scream of joy at how beautiful these things looked in their new box.
The attention to detail is impressive because you can choose to display the keychain with or without the accompanying paper label, and the auxiliary hook on the back allows you to hang a keychain with a longer shoulder strap.
Next, we have "My Collection Mini Shikishi File", which is specially used for "Mini Shikishi", square cardboard souvenirs, which are usually given to visitors as free gifts when participating in events.
Saya has many such works, so being able to integrate them into a series is like creating a mini art book. Saya likes its appearance very much, and she also appreciates the dust protection it provides for her precious items.
Next is that Saya will definitely buy more god-like "Cinderella outfit" items in the future: "Collection Box".
These are perfect for protecting and displaying all the cardboard coasters that provide free drinks in themed cafes. It is very simple to use, all you have to do is lift the lid, open the coaster, and then cover it with the lid.
Saya has been looking for a way to display all of her beautiful cardboard coasters, but the square frame that is small enough is hard to find.
▼This makes Cinderella suitable for more surprises here!
More importantly, if you want, you can connect other boxes together to create a complete display wall.
▼The people who designed these are definitely geniuses!
Another genius project is the "Wotatomo series mini collection frame", which is the perfect size for framed mini.
When visiting the Demon Slayer exhibition, Saya received a special illustration card for visitors. The frame was so perfect that Saya almost burst into tears with joy.
▼This joyous "Thank you for coming to the original photo exhibition!" The message from Gotoge is definitely worth a perfect frame.
Other useful products include the "My Collection Display Cabinet with Partitions", which can easily view small items such as keychains and tin badges...
▼ …"Acrylic Key Holder" provides greater mobility for your favorite character…
▼ …There is also a "protective sleeve" for storing precious trading cards.
Thanks to Seria, Saya was able to hold her own Demon Slayer exhibition at home, showcasing all these beautiful objects that would have been hidden on shelves or stored in drawers.
Despite buying a lot of accessories, this is not even everything they can buy at Seria’s Otaku Corner. What’s even more amazing is that they are all priced at 110 yen ($1.39).
Therefore, if you are looking for a way to showcase all of your anime products, be sure to include Seria in your list of shopping places in Japan before immersing yourself in the world of Demon Slayers at Universal Studios Japan.
