BREAKING NEWS: AkihabaraNews Embraces Sushi Socks Economics

Fishy Footwear: How the News Makes Money!

These days, pretty much every news site from the super huge to the medium to the tiny is either incorporating and/or switching to some kind of e-commerce or sales affiliate model to keep themselves afloat, or they're sinking. The times they have-a-changed.

While AkihabaraNews is no different, we are afforded the geektastic luxury of slinging sushi socks for our friends at Tokyo Otaku Mode - which is way better than slinging Farmville or boner pills or linkbait A, B, or C, right? Absolutely right - these are high-quality products made right here in Japan of...high-quality sock parts!

So hey, if you need some sushi socks, or don’t need but just want, or think it would be a good idea to send 2-4 pairs to aunt Sally in St. Louis or uncle Benoît in Aix-en-Provence, click on through and TOM via AKI will hook you up post-haste.
