It’s May, the flowers bloom, the birds lay eggs, the smell of fresh green grass tickles your prefrontal cortex….memories from happy times are triggered and a feeling of nostalgia flows through your body. Life is good. But May isn’t just a month of memories, it’s also a month of renewal, new wallpapers are chosen, Ikea is busier than ever and websites get a sunny make-over. Japanwebshopping has been sporting a very dark look, yeah we are freaks and we’re proud of it! Problem is that it was maybe a bit too otaku and scared away the casual shopper. We went to work and created a lighter and easier accessible site, while still holding on to our beloved black and gray (that we are great Yohji Yamamoto fans is something that goes without saying).
Let us know what you think about it, your opinion greatly matters to us.
We already wrote once before about fashion icon Kamenrider Ghost and his cool outfits, well this time Bandai Fashion has raised the bar a notch by releasing the exclusive 45th Anniversary line further separating the boys from the men.
In collaboration with biker gear designing and producing company Harold’s Gear they came up with some lovely stuff.
They released two chronograph watches; the Cyclone and the Shocker
The cyclone is inspired by the Cyclone bike which the first Kamen rider (Kamen rider one) used to ride.
The shocker model is of course designed with Kamen Rider’s eternal enemy in mind; the secret organization Shocker.
The watches have a Japanese movement with a 2-axis step motor and are waterproof till a 100 meters.
Price=37,800 yen exl tax and you’ll receive 378 points. Pre-order now, with delivery in July.
Next up are these silver rings:
The top one is called the TACHIBANA RACING CLUB and the bottom one is the SHOCKER.
The inside of the rings.
Price:29,160円 and you’ll receive 291 points. Now up for pre-order with delivery in July 2016
A little pricier but well worth the money due to its coolness factor is this handmade (domestic)cow leather biker jacket…make that jackets.
The Kamen rider theme is subtle and can be found at the back and the arms of this jacket, while the front is has a classic “Isle of Man race” design. These are real biker jackets to use on a bike, moped or kick bike, giving you protection against weather elements and the pavement…but of course you can also just use them to prance around in and looking mighty fine.
Price: 151,200 yen

You can see that Kamen Rider is no longer just for boys and housewives, Premium Bandai has successfully carried over the idea and feeling of Kamen Rider in this collection and still managed to look adultish (if that wasn’t a word, it now is).
Mail us for further information, these products are only for sale on Bandai net and you’ll always end up paying a fair bit more when buying through a third party…not so with us, we’ll buy it for you, send it to you in the best way possible and all we get is a tiny 10% of the original price+we will keep your points, which you can use on your next purchase…shopping has never been cheaper and easy.
Let me first thank you all dear customers/friends who have been putting your trust in our service, without your help we’d all be working for other companies and we wouldn’t enjoy our jobs/lives as much as we do now.
We’ve been getting the most surprising and unusual requests and thereby expanding our horizon in what you want and we learn what makes our fellow human being tick. Communicating with folks from all around the world has been a challenging at times (we had to bring in a part-time Spanish speaker/translator and on a rare occasion a Russian translator), but besides these rare hiccups, chatting with you through Skype/WordPress/mail and Facebook has been a blast.
We also value your input a lot, and a common complain was that our website loaded like snail…our mistake was that we tried to put as much information and connecting links in it as possible, thereby creating a headache for those without high speed internet access.
So we went a bit simpler this time, and changed the look to a more material/metal look. The pages load a bit faster and it’s definitely easier to the eye. Our love for manga and anime are also more present this time around.
This dark metallic look continues in the separate product pages.
We still haven’t completed the whole site yet though(especially the Japanese section), but we’re working hard to have it finished before Christmas.
Thank you all so much for your patience and in the meantime we will continue to be the best/safest/cheapest (and most personal) personal shopper for you.
October is the month that the new Kamenrider (masked rider) makes his appearance on Japanese TV, lots of little boys, otaku’s and housewives are looking eagerly forward to this season’s new masked hero. The last few kamenriders walked a light almost comical line, sometimes approaching super sentai levels of childishness…remember Gaim with his “great ball watermelon, bing bang”? nuff said…
No longer, the new Kamen rider Ghost has a darker feel, not as dark as Black, but more like Decade, the kamen rider with his intense inner struggle.
And while Ghost is still more aimed at the younger public than say Blade, in which people died by the dozens, it is still good fun to watch even for adults. But a new Kamen rider means a new wave of merchandise, this time it’s not only for the kiddies.
although the fashion line of Rider Drive was my personal favorite, like the leather jacket below , Ghost has some really cool stuff too, best of all the adult line never makes you look geeky, it’s really well designed and high quality apparel….only your fellow Rider lover will notice it as such…
kamenrider Drive leather jacket.
Now let’s see what Ghost has to offer..
Ah a leather jacket with matching leather pants, well I’d leave the pants and just go for the jacket…if hadn’t ordered the Drive Jacket, which I actually prefer, but is double the price..
I really dig this Rider Ghost Spector leather wallet though.
Or this leather belt….just lovely.
What about some fancy accessories? These rings are big, like BIG!
And what would Christmas be without….Kamenrider?
If you’re not planning on visiting Japan any soon than you have to let the cake go..no matter how delicious it looks… all other stuff can be ordered through us and we give you all the points earned at Premium Bandai.
