Pikachu Yokohama Takeover (Update)

Last week we took you over to Yokohama for some funky Pickachu marching- here’s an update with some better video. It’s still bizarre, but it’s better QUALITY bizarre.

Cat(urday) Burglar

Most of us like to save our money in the bank. It’s safe, earns interest, you get a handy ATM card, etc. Then there are some die hards who prefer to keep their cash under the mattress, or in a pickle jar in the basement. Still others prefer to simply hide it under the living room rug.

This is a bad idea. The Cat Burglar will find it everytime.

Nice Pillow, Tea Tiger

Welcome to Friday! Some day, we’re gonna try and figure out how Tea Tiger can be comfortable on a WATERMELON. Wait, he’s a cat. Never mind.

All Aboard! Kishi Station Gets A New Super Station Master!

Clipboard01There’s a new (Super) Sheriff in town, folks. Nitama has been appointed as official Super Station Master (and successor to the late Tama) at Kishi Station, Wakayama Prefecture. This is the official press conference:

Her hours are 10am to 4pm, with Monday and Thursdays off. Tama has received the posthumous promotion to “Distinct Eternal Stationmaster.”


And here Nitama is visiting the Tama shrine. They take this SERIOUSLY in The Big J.

(Thanks to Andrew Y., who does not- repeat not- work for RN24.)

C.O. Peeps, Meet Osamu

Uh-oh, another outrageously Cute Kitteh from Japan. They just won’t let up on us, will they.

And…That’s Gonna Be It For Planet Earth

Pikachu Marching. In Yokohama. AGAIN. Coming to YOUR town…..sooner than you think. Kotaku has the story. (Thanks again Carol H.)







What. Is. Going. On. Here.

The Big J may have outdone itself with this one. You advertise your breath mint with a giant kitteh picking up some guy at the train station. Makes..perfect..sense. “My husband sent me this crazy commercial from Japan (obviously). A giant kitteh carrying a man thru subway to his work. Been fans forever! Visit ur site multiple times a day!” -Katrine K., Seattle.

Lookin’ For A Cute Place To Hang In Kobe?

Of course you are. Probably woke up this morning and thought, “I’d love to meet and pet the Cute Friends at Kobe Animal Kingdom.” No problem- the always dependable Robb S. takes us there.

“It’s a nice place since nearly all the animals are just roaming around loose, and you can pet them and feed them,” he says.
