hi-fructose vol.10

thanks to attaboy and annie form hi-fructose for featuring my toy, koibito in the newest issue of their magazine.

also in this issue my friend, yosuke ueno has an in-depth interview.
more reason to pick them up:)




i received this gift from my fan in osaka、japan.
i feel very lucky to have such a wonderful supporter:)





first of all i want to say thanks to all the fans who are sitting in front of a computer all day to purchase the online exclusive release.
i understand 7 items aren't that many and it is a lot of work for you to check the MK site all day.
and i really hope some of the over sea fans are able to purchase some of the goodies.

in the mean time please enjoy some of these awesome photos which were send by koibito lovers:)

online exclusives

after the successful koibito release party at munky king last month, i received many e-mails from over the sea/ out of the state fans. many of them expressed their excitement about koibito. and others expressed their sadness for missing the party and all the goodies which were available at the event....
personally i understand their situation very well. there have been many cases that i wished i could of been back at home in japan. i wasn't be able to attend to some of these events in the past due to financial reasons and other circumstances, including two of my brothers weddings and many of the holidays........   
so i made a decision to create online exclusive koibitos for those who couldn't make it to the official release party.  
these four colours represent the four elements of the nature: earth, fire, wind, and water.
here are some of the images:

also there  will be a very small run of "under the stars" gocco prints.
we are still working on the timing and the detail about this exclusive online release....
i will let you know as we figure it out.
