Peek Into Rinkya’s Office- MANGA Style!

If you follow us on Facebook (Which you should, cuz we are AWESOME!) Awhile back, we linked to this awesome app for the iPhone- the Manga camera to let everyone know about it!  It is so cool, it takes any picture and instead of a hipster Instagram filter, you can choose to mangify it!  

So, we took a tour of the Rinkya warehouse- manga style!  Enjoy a glimpse into Rinkya’s world where all the magic takes place =)
Hard at work! (That looks like a cat on a shelf but we don’t have a cat? )

12 Anime Christmas Cakes That Make You Wish You Lived in Japan!

Christmas cakes are a tradition in Japan.  Generally, the cakes are strawberry shortcake, but they tend to mix it up a bit as you will see in the many cakes below.  Department, grocery and online stores sell beautiful ornate cakes to celebrate Christmas- and it is a MUST to get your reservation in early as they frequently sell out.

As it is Japan, they have a variety of Anime Christmas Cake available and most come with an exclusive figure!  Here are 12 Christmas Cakes available in Japan this December!

The Kamen Masked Rider (with a figure too!) This cake comes with a ton, check out the homepage here!
The One Piece Christmas Cake takes on a pirate ship and comes with a set of plates and utensils!
