Its that time again to take a look at the latest and greatest trends in the holy land - Akihabara. But I'm a wee bit late posting this as these were taken before Christmas.
Today our visit includes Mandarake, Toranoana, Radio Kaikan, Kotobukiya, Sofmap, Tokyo Anime Center, Kimidore, Kanda Myojin Shrine, Animate and Comic Zin.
Akihabara looks great by day and night.
Sofmap on Chuo Dori Street.
Eroge players may want to pick up these mousepads that include wrist support systems to prevent wrist breakage - because if wrist broke then cant play eroge properly.
The ioPhone 5 looks interesting too.

Speaking of which - very large presence of Kancolle doujinshi of late.
