We here at Co-Kan think that fandom is a journey. It's not something meant to be locked in a room, confined in a drawer, or left on a shelf. We want to help people express themselves, have fun, and do things together.
If this sounds like you, you've come to the right blog! We have multiple series for you to enjoy and get learn't!
There are many bags, like our Affectuator Backpack and OTB Tote, that come with lace or side mounting points. Observing people with these bags, we noticed one thing: those things are criminally underused! In this short Inspiration Station I’ll go over a really simple decoration I whipped up using $3 worth of materials from Daiso, zip ties, plain printer paper, scissors for creating a trimmed edge and hanging badge covers.
Today, let's go over this black OTB tote bag I decorated, as seen on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. A very rare specimen indeed, as I don't decorate black often. (￣︶￣;) On this occasion, I found it more befitting than using any other color. If white was available, I would have gone with that option. (•̀o•́)ง Yosh! Let's go.
Thank you to everybody who stopped by our booth last weekend at SacAnime! It was a major success, and we plan on attending again in winter as well as expand into other conventions. We tried for an open floorplan and it really worked. We got to meet and chat with a lot of you. Many people had fun sitting at our bench to open blindboxes and decorate their itabags. It was a very good first con and it was worth the preparation.
We've spent the last week cleaning up, recounting stock, and reorganizing the warehouse. Sorry we didn't update you sooner!
Welcome to a brand new blog series: mō ichi do PLEASE! We will discuss nuances, mistranslations, and trivia regarding the Japanese language. In this first post, we’ll go off of our previous Anime Unearthed: Shounen article by explaining “nakama” and how it differs from other words for friendship - you’re gonna need to know this if you wanna become the pirate king or the next hokage!
Welcome to Anime Unearthed - the series where we talk about anime, because why not? For our first post in this series, we’ll start very simple by discussing target demographics.
Target demographics are the lens that we see a genre through - a shounen romance will behave differently than a seinen romance, for example. To make things relatively simple, manga is published in magazines by target demographic. Shounen Jump is a well known example of this.
