Pom Pom Purin in Hong Kong!!

Hey guys how are you all? I hope you’ve all had wonderful holiday celebrations with your family and friends. I know I have and there are quite a few interesting holiday events and installations to check out this time of the year in Hong Kong. One particular character named Pom Pom Purin was featured in a lovely display at the Metro City Plaza at Po Lam. Pom Pom Purin is a Sanrio character and it is typically associated with tea and pudding. It’s translated Chinese name literally means Pudding Puppy (or dog).

I found these sculptures and little displays really quite festive and fitting for the holidays. They went with a dreamy Christmas Wonderland theme while keeping to the golds and caramels unique to the Pom Pom Purin trademark look. There was even a crane game and promotional features for fans to check out. Overall I was really impressed with how this event went.

I hope you guys enjoyed this post =) Regularly scheduled reviews will return soon!

FanExpo Canada 2014 Artist Alley Haul

Hey guys, here’s are all the artwork and fan art that I got from FanExpo Canada this year. I went much lighter in the Artist Alley shopping because there are less anime fan art-artists than at Anime North. Nevertheless, I got to visit some of my favourite artists and meet some great new ones =) No Dealer’s Room Haul feature this year because I really didn’t get a wide variety of merchandise. However if you’re looking to check out all the manga I got last weekend, click the link here.
