Let’s go to the beach with Pusheen beachwear

Summer is finally here! And that means sun and sea (or pool, for those who stay in the city). So if you are thinking of renovating your beach wardrobe with a new swimsuit and you are looking for something kawaii, we suggest you take a look at the new beachwear collection by Pusheen, the most famous cat on the web. It’s so cute that you’ll want to go to the beach even if you one of those, like myself, who prefer to stay as far away as possible from summer sun and sand!

Things we like: the new “lucky” collection by Mr. Wonderful

It is no secret that we like the lovely Mr. Wonderful accessories a lot and it’s always very hard for us to avoid compulsive buying in front of the exhibitors we find in bookstores. Especially now that a new series of limited edition items have come out, mixing together two of our favourite things: cats and Japan! In fact, Mr. Wonderful’s Lucky Collection has as its protagonist a manekineko, the famous Japanese lucky cat.

Kawaii at the Movies: Aladdin

Back in 1992, we still were children when we left the movie theatre with heart-eyes after watching Aladdin for the first time. Almost 30 years have passed (we feel old just writing it) and in this period we have seen the animated movie so many times that we know every scene by heart… and we are certain that we are not alone! Now Disney brings us back to Agrabah, this time with protagonists in the flesh: are Arabian nights still as magical as they once were?

Watched for you: Rilakkuma and Kaoru, the San-x series on Netflix

After a long wait (we announced it to you at the end of October 2017), Rilakkuma TV series is available on Netflix since April 19th! The lazy bear created by Aki Kondo and San-x’s leading character is the protagonist, together with his inseparable friends, of Rilakkuma and Kaoru, a series of 13 episodes that answers some burning questions: how big is Rilakkuma? how is his voice? is he really a bear dressed like a bear? We binge-watched it last weekend! Find out if we liked it!

Kawaii books: Giappomania

A few weeks ago, during a bookstore tour, our attention was drawn to a very colourful book with an unmistakable title: Giappomania (in English it’s something like Japanmania). It is written by Marco Reggiani, with the illustrations of Sabrina Ferrero, and it is a little jewel that we had to add to our library of kawaii books. If you don’t already know it, we show you the book more closely.

Kawaii at the Movies: Ralph Breaks the Internet

Let’s start the year in the best way with a new animated film, one of those we like! In fact, since January 1st, Ralph Breaks the Internet is in all Italian theatres. The new Disney movie takes us back to the crazy world of video games and sends us, with its protagonists, on the internet. How will Ralph and Vanellope cope with social networks, algorithms and search engines?
