Despite the freezing weather today, we headed out to Comiket, eager to check out another con in Japan which didn’t fail to disappoint with the high level of cosplay that was on display. Such cosplay! We had a quick look inside the actual venue which was very interesting but we weren’t able to grab any footage 🙁 Gomensai 🙁 We then caught the train to nearby Diver City to grab a bite and to see the amazing Gundam statue before he gets disassembled in March 2017 🙁
Mister Donut make really delicious and addictive donuts in Japan and they always seem to be having special edition donuts depending on what season it is. This trend is definitely continuing now that Christmas is around the corner with the news that the donut franchise will be having a special release very soon.
Coming in at a massive 18cm diameter, the “Big Donut“ which is built around their popular Pon de Ring donut will be available from November 16 this year.
It even sells with a really cute Pon de Ring snowman right in the centre for that special touch. It comes layered with whipped cream, powdered sugar and chocolate. Each of the eight segments which make up the donut has a random mixture of strawberry cream, whipped cream, custard cream or chocolate whipped cream. I think I got diabetes just from reading all that.
Like all the best things in Japan however, it’s only available via a pre-order and will sell for ¥864.
These next donuts though require no pre-order and look just as yummy!
Check out those Snoopy donuts!
Another announcement has come out of the recent Winter WonFes in Japan regarding a new nendoroid from a classic series.
Good Smile Company have revealed that nendoroid #400 will be fan favourite Sakura Kinomoto from CLAMP’s CardCaptor Sakura.
Adorable, right? 🙂
