Yikes, $360 for a backpack?

My $20 Eastport backpack has survived through my last year of junior high, all of high school, my 2 year religious mission out of the country, and so far 3 years of university.

Are these backpacks provided by the government and/or schools?

That was a wonderful and kind thing to do though.

Reading this seriously made me cry. It's hard to believe that there are still pure hearted, kind people in this world. Whoever he is, he's awesome.

While it eludes me why they would bother to leave them under an alias, its nice to see that someone out there still cares.

Japanese "Randosel" backpacks don't always cost $300+. Most of them cost in the $70-100 range, less if they're on sale.

Randosel are one of the most ubiquitous images of elementary school kids in Japan (along with unicycles in the gym). Yes, they are dorky. But in Japan they think it's the obvious solution to a problem... it's just how things are.

That's wonderfully sweet. I wish more people did good things like that, we need more happy news in the world (though I assume we wouldn't be reading about this here if it weren't for the anime/manga tidbit).

*Looks at the Tiger Mask page out of curiosity* Wow, that plot summary is very... Babel Fish.

Considering all the recent stories where someone's done something horrible and stuck an anime reference onto it, it's nice to see one attached to something good.

Go, Tiger Mask! Go!

What a cool thing to do.

As for using an alias, some people don't want or need public recognition, they do it because it's what they want to do, and that's enough.

Truly anime fans are the scum of society and their material must be...oh wait.

This bought a smile to my face.
