The new mascot character, "Toranomon" of the new Tokyo skyscraper complex Toranomon Hills has been receiving great response, and tons of people have already visited there to take a photo with Toranomon's statue.
A lot of AkihabaraNews readers liked our past coverage about Toranomon, too:
Calbee just released DORAEMON potato chips which will be sold for a limited time only until early May.
They are basic salt flavor potato chips that come with 2 DORAEMON illustrated cards in each bag. There are a total of 72 different cards including "Normal cards" with funny DORAEMON, valuable "Color cards with original drawings", and "Famous scene cards" displaying a whole page from the comic book on the card.
If you are a big fan of DORAEMON, happy snacking and good luck collecting all 72 cards!
