Tokyopop marks Asian Pacific Heritage Month with cosplayers on Saturday

Not-So-Daily Link of the Day: The North American manga publisher Tokyopop will hold a Fruits Basket event at the Macy's department store in New York City's Herald Square on Saturday to celebrate Asian Pacific Heritage Month. As Macy's website describes the event:

Fruits Basket, the world's # 1 shojo manga, is coming to Macy's! This story of a family with an ancient curse and the orphaned high school girl who changes their lives forever, has captivated the hearts and imagination of children all over the world.

Shoppers can "meet your favorite Fruits Basket characters" and "have your photo taken with Tohru and friends." There will also be a costume contest during the event, which will begin at 2:00 p.m. in the Kids department. Shoppers who buy US$75 or more at the department will receive "a Fruits Basket DVD and book series."

Tokyopop will publish the 23rd and final volume of Natsuki Takaya's Fruits Basket manga next month. Funimation released the television anime adaptation on DVD in North America.
