Left: remember what I said about any excuse for cosplay? This was a window display in Shinjuku. Try something like that in New York! Right: a small police office, attached to the side of a department store. Each one contains a hidden elevator that drops you 100 stories down to the giant robot hangar. Or the mole tank command center, depending on your precinct.
Left: the museum’s screening room schedule for the day, a tie-in to the “50 years of anime robots” exhibit: Godmars, Macross, Astro Boy, and Tetsujin 28. Right: someday I want to see every 1/1 scale anime figure in one place. That’s not asking too much, is it?
Recreated animator’s desks. The one at the right is attributed to Yoshiyuki Tomino, creator of Mobile Suit Gundam, but they seldom stay this neat in real life.

Left: me, with the largest Gundam model kit ever sold. Yes, there was a time when you could buy this bruiser. And probably encase a child inside it. Right: Photography was verboten beyond the entrance to the “50 years of Anime Robots” exhibit. Turns out it wasn’t photo-worthy anyway.
Left: would you order that from Burger King, or attack it with a Jaeger? Right: coming soon to the Shinjuku Wald 9 theater: Wolverine Samurai, Episode Nippon.
