Please for the love of what's good and holy, don't let fidget spinners become a thing in Japan.

I didn't get to try the VR headset myself, unfortunately, but you can easily find videos of people using it if you google “BotsNew Characters VR DRAGON BALL Z”. Japanese media outlets have been hyping this one up like crazy—will it ever make its way to the States?

I hope it does!

One such example of a toy not meant for children is Bandai's Formania EX V Gundam, which is based off a mobile suit that first featured in the 1988 film Char's Counterattack.


That should read "Formania EX ν Gundam" (it's a "Nu" not a "V"). The "V Gundam" is a different mobile suit, from the later series Victory Gundam.

Rilu Rilu Fairilu... stage show was performed by young women dancing to an idol routine

Worth mentioning that protagonist Lip does perform as an idol in the show itself when transformed into a humalu as Hanasaki Yumiri, so it's not just a random "let's add idols for generation crossover appeal" idea.
