Takahashi Meijin 30th anniversary t-shirt ⊟
Ohhhhhh wow. Japanese shirt company Mars Sixteen has produced this amazing shirt in honor of the 30th anniversary of… I think his acquisition of the “Meijin” name/rise to fame in Japan.
It features a hand on the front, in classic Meijin formation, rapidly tapping on an unseen button on the front, and a cartoon style image of the former Hudson pitchman on the back, complete with his “Play the game one hour a day” catchphrase.

Kirby: Roly-Poly Little Hero sweater ⊟
What an adorable sweater! I love the embroidered Kirby and the star on the back! Being that it’s from King of Games, though, this apparel does come with a few caveats — actually it comes with 100 caveats, and that’s before shipping and handling. If you’re alright with spending $100 on a sweater, though, keep in mind that this one’s available in only XS, S, and XL.

Den’s slick Game Boy shirt, iPhone skin ⊟
Hey, I would wear this, even if that Game Boy looks huge. Japanese online shop [den] is selling these in Black and Blue variations for ¥2,100 each, or around $20. It has a few other dope tees in its catalog, like one that’s just the error screen when you boot up a Game Boy without a cartridge.
[den] also sells these cute stickers that make the back of your iPhone look like the back of a Game Boy — it’s a neat alternative to those Game Boy iPhone cases I see everywhere on Tumblr and Instagram nowadays. I wonder if you can draw on the sticker to put your tiny cartridge of choice in there.
Cory Schmitz’s “Killer” shirt back in stock ⊟
Here’s a recipe for a rad day (a few business days from now, I guess):
- Order this Killer 7-inspired shirt by Cory Schmitz, on Fangamer.
- Buy a used copy of Killer 7.
- Play Killer 7 while wearing the shirt.
- Maybe get some pizza or something, I don’t know, I can’t plan your whole life
- Read Tiny Cartridge, a site also designed by Cory!
Now that’s a good day.
BUY Killer 7, upcoming games
"Trouble in the Tall Grass" on Threadless ⊟
Pretty nice Pokemon shirt by Vaughn Pinpin. It’s also available as an iPhone case or a print, because Threadless started doing that at some point while I wasn’t paying attention. The little pixel Pikachu is great!
Shadow Triforce shirt idea by Cory Schmitz
The inverted Triforce tee complements his excellent Wisdom, Courage, Power shirt at Attract Mode (bottom image). If you missed the news last week, The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds will introduce the Shadow Triforce.
I always love Cory’s shirts because they’re rarely gimmicks or mash-ups, just awesome and thoughtful designs.
New Leaf threads: “My Pockets are Full”
Online shop Human has these tees, tank tops, long-sleeve shirts, sweaters, and more available in a variety of colors, ranging from $26 to $46. You’ll have to deal with people walking up to you and asking to buy your ankylosaurus skull for 400 bells, though.
Save $4 on this rad Animal Crossing shirt
To celebrate the release of Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Fangamer is offering a special deal on Ashley Davis’s magical “Meet the Neighbors” shirt.
When you check out, use the code NUWEEF and get $4 off! That puts it at a nice, affordable $19. Wear it so everyone will know you’re all about cute times in animal villages like Buttocks.
Pokemon “My First Partner” shirt by The King of Games
Kind of a miss for the Kyoto-based shirt company, as “My First Partner” seems hella awkward for a shirt. At least, I’d feel pretty self-conscious about that.
I do like the crest of what appear to be completely random Pokémon on here, though.
PREORDER Pokemon X and Y, upcoming releases
Cool Monster Hunter 4 shirts by Uniqlo
These are just four of an approximate fuckton of Monster Hunter designs being produced by Uniqlo’s UT line for sale in stores and online. The cool thing about Uniqlo shirts (besides the “looking rad” thing) is that even the stuff that doesn’t seem like it would make it out of Japan shows up in the US stores and on the website!
The official release date on these is May 31. There’s underwear too, don’t worry.
Dreamcast bags and 16-bit gear
The 16-bit and Dreamcast tops, along with the oversized Dreamcast backpack (omg at that amazing mural), are headed to Japan from Segakawaii later this month. They’re priced at ¥4,725 ($49) each and ¥13,860 ($144) respectively.
The belt and luggage are both available at the Japanese Sega Store for ¥8,400 ($87) and ¥22,050 ($229) — hat tip to La Repisa Nintendo for posting those. As much as I love all of this, these prices are crazybutts.
Miyazaki x Street Fighter: Spirit Fighter by Drew Wise
This, along with a Snorlax x Totoro design, is available as a shirt for on The Yeetee today. The tees aren’t actually animated, but they are super cheap at $11 each.
