Aaron, from Sunken Treasures Games here with a happy announcement! While our store doesn’t typically have the opportunity to carry many “New” games, we’re pleased as punch to announce that we’ll be carrying Super Smash Bros. WiiU, Pokemon Omega Sapphire/Ruby and Nintendo’s upcoming Amiibo figures, this fall!
While we may not get them until a day or two after the official release date (November 21st-ish!?), we’re still stoked ~ so if any of these things are on your wish list, please keep us in mind!

Okay folks, it’s time for an Ichiban Kuji Prize Raffle UPDATE!
The “Kill la Kill” Ichiban Kuji is here and available RIGHT NOW! Each ticket is $7.99 and prizes include figures, keychains, t-shirts, posters, pin sets and more. Remember every ticket is a guaranteed prize. Overall the Kill la Kill I.K. has 66 total prizes.
Regarding our other Ichiban Kuji sets: Bakemono Gatari is down to about 40% of the tickets remaining and there’s still several of the chibi Kyun-Chara figures available as well as some amazing poster sets, wall scrolls and a beautiful large scale Shinobu figure. This is a “Premium” Ichiban Kuji and each ticket is $9.99.
The “Tales of” (as in the Namco Bandai ‘Tales of…’ video games) Ichiban Kuji is also over 50% complete and has mini-figs, large scale figures (one from Tales of Xillia 2, and one from Tales of the Abyss), keychains, towels, and other goodies. This Ichiban Kuji has recently seen a price drop and is currently going for $7.99 a ticket.
That’s all for this week’s update. We’re not expecting the Kill la Kill one to last terribly long, so if that’s your show be sure to snag a few tickets this weekend!
Until next time (when we talk about Sailor Moon) adios!
Just in time for Wednesday night’s Weiss Schwarz card night, Nisei Koi booster packs and ENGLISH Kill La Kill trial decks are in stock!
Nisei Koi booster packs are $4.49+tax, and Kill La Killa trial decks are $19.99+tax.
Even though summer is winding down, I refuse to let it go. That’s why I’ll be playing my Swimsuit deck. I absolutely love the fact that “swimsuit” is a character trait in this game. This deck features cards from seven different sets and is a ton of fun to play!
It is also one of our players last card night before going off to college so we’ll be having a little farewell party. Everyone is invited so please come down to the store to play and have fun with us tonight! People start playing around 4:00pm so if you’re free we hope to see you!
Last Wednesday, August 20th, we hosted the first Weiss Schwarz tournament of the summer. It was a pretty quick and super fun tournament so BIG THANK YOU’s to everyone who came and participated!
The tournament winner was Jake playing Persona!
As always, it was a pleasure hosting the tournament and hanging out with all the awesome players. If you missed this tournament, don’t fret, we will be hosting another one on Wednesday, September 24th. For more details stay tuned here, on the website, Facebook and Twitter.

A popular activity for anime lovers in Japan is “paper crafts”. Folding paper to create little versions of beloved anime characters.
Unlike origami that only consists of folding, paper crafts can require tape, glue, and sometimes scissors.
We have a handful of paper crafts kits here at the store from animes you might be familiar with: “K-ON!” and “Dangan Rompa”. I decided to put one together to show you how easy it is to make these and how cute they are.
No scissors are require for these kits~ just punch them out.
Simply fold the pieces and match the numbers and insert together.
Now put them all together!
Cute huh?! Stop by and check out all the other paper craft, and maybe even take one home!!
