Just some wacky news related to Japan:

All Nippon Airways released an amazing set of figures covering the different uniforms their stewardess used during their story.

And of course, it created a fan following, this site even has an imageboard and a drawing board.

And there was a fan meeting at Akihabara.

There are fanarts around the net as well... Only in Japan? yes, but I would love to get the set, I won't lie...

Just like to add... ANA is the best airline I've ever flown on. Amazing service.

I wonder if I can get some even MORE amazing service on my trip back ...

Did anyone mention that these figures are cute yet? Because they are very, very cute.

I mentioned that they were cute when somebody linked them in #insertcredit, but forgot to mention it here. Very cute indeed!

Hmm, it looks like the official site allows overseas orders. I need to attempt an order.

Hohohoh, in that case, you must one-up your previous flight by flying Singapore Air! I hate flying (despite doing it a lot), but riding their plane was the closest I ever had to a good time in the air. They had Japanese and American food choices, beautiful waitresses in the Singapore equivolent of a kimono or formal wear, snacks, real warm towels (not microwaved ones), and a Super Famicom in my seat TV. I definitely beat Super Mario World and relived the pain of getting abused by Super Adventure Island, too.

Hm, interesting figures and art for just some ANA stuff.

For some reason I think that the G-Taste artist could do some good stuff with this fad.
