Game Cards Mania - Data Carddass Style

One of the nonsense we allow Raimie to splurge each month is buying Japanese magazines which is either the Terebi-Kun or the Terebi-Mag. And he has started collecting Kamen Rider, Super Sentai and of course Ultraman carddass that he got as free gifts from these two magazines.

A surefire way to make kids want to buy these magazines and subsequently buy whatever toys they are promoting in their current issues - give out freebies! Come to think of it, the Kamen Rider series and the Ultra Series, (or whatever tokukatsu* series from the Land of the Rising Sun) it's like watching an extended ad for their toys and merchandises anyway!

For your info, Carddass is the Bandai subsidiary responsible for releasing game cards based on popular Bandai franchises. This includes games such as the Gundam War Collectible Card Game based on the metaseries, as well as a Gash Bell (Zatch Bell!) TCG, Naruto CCG, Rangers Strike (Super Sentai Series, Kamen Rider Series, Metal Hero Series), Neon Genesis Evangelion, Ultra Galaxy Daikaijyu Battle (Ultra Series) and most recently their most sucsessful to date, the Battle Spirits Trading Card Game.

Raimie can't wait to go to Japan and play the arcade games either  Ultraman's Daikaiju Battle RR and Kamen Rider 's Ganbaride. Japan game arcade centres : here we come! Bye-bye all our 100yen coins! *^_^*

p.s.*Tokukatsu is not to be mistaken as Tonkatsu, OK?

Tokukatsu : is a Japanese term that applies to any live-action film or television drama that usually features superheroes and makes considerable use of special effects(tokusatsu literally translates as "special filming" in Japanese).

Tonkatsu: is a breaded, deep-fried pork cutlet, one to two centimeters thick and sliced into bite-sized pieces, generally served with shredded cabbage and/or miso soup.

That children, concludes our Japanese lesson for today. XD

  1. You can claim tax deduction on purchases of reading materials. That's an incentive to encourage people to read.
