Since the majority travelled by public transport especially train for the Japanese, it's obvious that advertisement and product showcase should be done at train stations. Here @ Akihabara JR Line Train Station, you would be surrounded by anime/manga pop culture as soon as you got down the train. I had mentioned previously about anime/manga leaflets or flyers at the rack inside the station but I guessed that had missed out those digital posters on anime/manga you would see over at Akihabara Station. 

Agent 'S' and by now you known is Stanley and I was finding our way to get around the area and by chance came across Akiba Showroom. Maybe not by chance since leading Japanese toy manufacturer 'Bandai' must be thought of picking this strategic location (Akihabara station's East-West Hall) that's highly accessible for tourist. Tamashii Nations Akiba Showroom is a admission-free walk-in gallery with the aim of showcasing nicely posed, Bandai's upcoming products from the Mobile Suit Gundam (Metal Build & Robot Tamashii) , Kamen Rider - Super Sentai S.H.Figuarts, Saint Seiya, Chogokin & etc...

they truly know how to capture new audiences for their products and retain the fans and collectors like us !!!... also in Japan, this culture is very relevant and receives the respect which is forgotten in many other countries... all this stuff is awesome and gives you an idea about how much this industry has evolved !!!... =)

Goes to show that toy maker like Bandai and many others manufacturers are listening more to what consumers want with more new collectors. Not forgetting mature and older collectors those had been supporting their TV/ anime heroes from past till now. It's a healthy evolution. Collectors should not overspend and keep a wise budget for toys.

There's Naruto n Bleach under Bandai licensing I guess however there are lot more emphasis on One Piece when it come to merchandise. Maybe 'One Piece' is a big thing in Japan. I wonder if they are over produced.
