NEW YORK – TOKYO has more on Uniqlo’s Spring line of manga-themed t-shirts:
This is not just some token nod to the daily expanding manga phenomenon in the US, but a truly informed and deeply realized tribute to the diversity of manga straight from its native country. From Golgo 13 to Urusei Yatsura, the 50 year history of some of the manga industry’s most celebrated publishers is represented and celebrated in this shirt collection. Not only are the shirts gorgeous, but the display itself is a sight for otaku and manga fan sore-eyes.
WE WANT ONE.
Reminder: manga is the new mainstream!
