YouTubers, Rescue The Princess, have been at it again this time presenting an amazing cosplay show case from the recent Summer Comiket. This Comiket was the 92nd one and saw a massive crowd turn out at Tokyo Big Sight to check out the new manga from their favourite mangaka but also to admire the absolutely stellar cosplay that was on display. Don’t believe me? Check out the video below!
Pokemon Go has well and truly gripped Japan now that it’s been launched over there and it hasn’t take long for the first PoGo influenced cosplay to make an appearance. Seen at the recent 2016 Summer Wonder Festival event in Chiba Prefecture was this cute Pikachu complete with sign above her head which shows the CP (Unknown) along with Pokemon name.
This cosplayer is Sakura Nanase who had the look down with yellow overalls, matching headpiece and hair and black bra because apparently that’s how Pikachu rolls when he’s not being hunted.
Better late than never, it’s time for a fresh batch of cool TV commercials straight from Japan!

Fans of Madoka Magica will be chomping at the bit for these next set of news. The girls from the series will be receiving an update for the digital card game during the Summer season. There’s camping gear with a Summer theme as well as circus inspired outfits, just to name a couple.
The Summer Comic Market (Comiket 84) held in Japan has wrapped up for this year. Comiket is known as the world’s largest dojinshi fair which occurs twice annually and is a great opportunity for the public to showcase their self published works. As with expos and cons of this nature, it attracts cosplayers of all sorts in all various costumes and outfits. The venue it takes place at is the Tokyo Big Sight, a venue used in Japan for many events of this nature.
Check out the video below, spot any of your favourites?
Satoshi Inoue is a Japanese comedian who also happens to be a huge Monster Hunter fan, so recently Capcom put Monster Hunter 4 in his hands to give it a spin.
Even if you can’t understand the Nihongo, the videos showcase some of the new amazing new footage that awaits gamers in Japan when it launches in Japan in Summer 2013 for the Nintendo 3DS.
Just some more pics from prolific Japan pop culture blogger, Danny Choo, of the Otaku streets of Akihabara during the sweltering season that is Summer. I can’t get enough of these pics and love Akihabara for the tech, the amazing swag that you can only pick up there and just the people attracted to this amazing please.
Can’t wait to be back there, very soon!
We’ve been following Japanese blogger, Danny Choo‘s Summer in Japan series and now it’s time for another installment. This time the spotlight falls on the mecca that is shopping, Shibuya.
With the world famous scramble crossing which is the busiest in the world to everyone’s favourite dog Hachiko to the epicentre trademark building, Shibuya 109, there’s something here for everyone. Best place in Shibuya in my opinion, grab a cool latte during Summer and take a seat on the second floor of the extremely popular Starbucks and watch the world go past.
If you’ve been following Japandaman lately, you’ll know that we’ve been covering the current series of photographs that Danny Choo has been posting in his Summer in Japan series.
We’ve shown Summer in Akihabara and Summer in Shinjuku in case you’ve missed them and today we present Summer in Harajuku. Harajuku, the famed hangout of cosplayers, Gothic Lolitas and trendy people across Japan.
Some great pics below, be sure to check them out and a big thanks to Danny Choo.
