Hello Kitty at the EMP

While we were living in California, Los Angeles or more specific, Little Tokyo was our second home since we attended so many activities and events in that area year round.

After moving to Seattle, our attendance record has gone south and we have missed some great events. A painful example of this consequence was the Hello Kitty Exhibition held at the Japan American National Museum in Little Tokyo.

But imagine our surprise when we found out that Seattle's EMP Museum will be the first institution to host this exhibition while it travels around the country.

Here are some pictures of the exhibition

And here you can watch a couple of videos

We love you Kitty.

New Ghost in the Shell movie due this Summer in Japan

Not even a week after the revelation that Scarlett Johansson will be playing Mayor Kusanagi in Dreamwork's adaptation of GITS when we get this little gem from Japan:

There is no dialog, just text on the screen, thanks to Anime News Network for the translation:

Text: The legendary science-fiction work that caused a revolution around the world.
Text: Original Work - Masamune Shirow
Text: A work in celebration of 25 years
Text: The awakened ghost whispers...
Text: Ghost in the Shell: The New Movie
Text: Opens in early summer 2015

Lost of people familiar with the GITS universe are involved in this project. It is hard to believe that it has been 25 years since Shirow's master piece hit the bookshelves.
