Colossal Titan stars in Tokyo government anti-drug campaign

Anti-drug posters and commercials usually have a way of getting us down. Dark images of despair, death and homelessness rely on realism to get the message across, leaving us with tiny mental scars as a warning to stay away from the dark side and walk on the right side of life.

Here in Japan, though, anti-drug tactics are very different. Instead of scaring citizens, animated images are used to inform and empower people. And when the Tokyo Metropolitan Government enlists the help of the Survey Corps and Colossal Titan to fight the war on drugs, you’ve got a campaign that catches everyone’s interest.

The Tokyo Bureau of Social Welfare and Public Health is the brains behind the collaboration, created to build awareness ahead of the upcoming International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking on June 26.

The highlight of the campaign is a one-minute video starring our favourite characters from “Attack on Titan” caught up in the action and excitement of a battle scene.

Eren, who knows all about the dangers of mind and body transformations, gives a brief overview of dangerous drugs and their negative effects. Dangerous drugs can cause hallucinations and delusions, loss of consciousness, respiratory arrest, and even death.

So take heed when the Colossal Titan appears steaming over the city, displaying a gigantic, cross-armed “batsu” pose, commonly used in Japan to represent “X”, meaning “no” or “not good”.

Wild funky Japanese urban fashion

We like to introduce some “minor” Japanese fashion brands, minor as in world wide, but here in Japan these brands can count on a huge following. All these brands are designed and produced in japan. Japan fashion isn’t just Yohji Yamamoto, Rei, Kenzo and Miyake…check out what these lesser well known brands have to offer…often for a fraction of the price of the big designer goods.
Next up: Japan’s bad boy/girl brand, Hysteric Glamour!
Hysteric glamour clothes have an “in your face” design, partly punk, partly rock and partly pop artish. These clothes make the wearer give a statement that they don’t suffer from any shyness.

Gouk, truly original, affordable Japanese fashion.

We like to introduce some “minor” Japanese fashion brands, minor as in world wide, but here in Japan these brands can count on a huge following. All these brands are designed and produced in japan. Japan fashion isn’t just Yohji Yamamoto, Rei, Kenzo and Miyake…check out what these lesser well known brands have to offer…often for a fraction of the price of the big designer goods.

8,500 yen..yes that’s not even $80,-

We kick off with Gouk,by designer Takeshi Kunimoto a young brand with a big fan base. Their design is truly Japanese, you can often find small design hints from Japanese traditional wear like kimono and yukata, but it’s so easy to combine with other more orthodox fashion garments like a business suit, a pair of faded jeans etc etc.

Yes you can find a limited amount of Gouk products in the USA, but folks from other countries and from the USA will have so much more fun and choice checking the Japanese sites.
