I feel like I just got a cavity looking at these. OMG, that cosplay Golbat Pikachu. Yahoo Japan is beckoning me to buy one....

I'd like that Joltik keychain. I'd keep it out of my pockets though, as it'll get mangled and destroyed in there.

Just a decade ago, Japan has never heard of Halloween.

Now, they're already selling Halloween merchandise by August:



    Daiso and other stores in Tokyo are already selling Halloween merchandise, despite the festival being 2 1/2 months away. Halloween has exploded in popularity in Japan in recent years.


C'mon Japan, how about a little moderation or you'll burn everyone out!
By the time Halloween comes around, people will already be sick of Halloween!

I wonder what it would be like if they decided to make a Pokemon horror movie with Hellsing level violence. That would definitely not be for the kids.

That Joltik is adorable, I want one, although I would probably have it as a good luck charm as it would get dirty in my pocket.

Are Daiso stores in the United States selling this stuff too? That looks interesting.

Oh man, I want that Drifloon hat and Joltik keychain. Those sleeping bags too, although its a shame they are only lottery prizes. Argh, why couldn't they have had this earlier when I was in Japan, I would've bought them in a heartbeat.
