11th hour t-shirt

We first heard from Mayamada back in August and they’ve been awfully busy since then, most notably exhibiting at the MCM Expo in London back in October, holding an anime screening in November. They continue doing this “one notable thing per month” run by releasing a shirt called “11th hour” which features artwork based on “another of our fantasy shows about 4 strangers brought together as they try to uncover the mystery behind a timepiece that each character owns.”

Costiness=£20 Buy it at Mayamada [Mens/Womens]


pokemon t-shirt

I stopped updating the Black Friday t-shirt deal list once it hit 109 items and I got a migraine, but please remember that not all those deals were just for Black Friday, a lot of them carry on until today and a few beyond that too.

Not often that you’ll see a Pokemon x Katamari Damacy shirt, but TeeFury have given us a great one today.

Qwertee have a shirt about The Hulk today.

The dance of the blue footed boobie makes a return at Tilteed.

Nowhere Bad have dropped a shirt about National Lampoons Christmas Vacation, of course.

I don’t know if there’s any significance to XYZ on the shirt, but I like the idea of the zip in the Y.

This rather magical tee at Shirt.Woot is also available as a long-sleeve tee.

Swiss Army Wolverine, huh, didn’t see that one coming, RIPT.

Very clever shirt from The Yetee, I wouldn’t call myself a massive fans of the Aliens series, but this concept works really well.

A fairly oblique reference to Futurama from TeeMinus24, but it’s always good to see a Futurama t-shirt.

Very interesting Bowser shirt from 24tee today, good style to it.

TeeRaiders are responsible for our Doctor Who shirt today.

GraphicLab have dropped their latest shirt and it’s a delightful mashup or Scott Pilgrim and Back To The Future.

Very nice musical shirt at Loviu today.

Can anyone enlighten me as to what the Japanese (right?) text says on this Back To The Future tee at Shirt Punch?

Tshirt Contest are parodying Game of Thrones with this bacon flavoured t-shirt.

No new shirt from DBH today, but every tee is $15 for Cyber Monday, I think that’s a pretty good deal!

Kissmetrics take a look at whether having your phone number om your website will increase sales. Hint, it usually does.

Honour Over Glory have released their Autumn/Winter Range, so obviously they had to make a promo video featuring hot girls in the woods.

BustedTees Cyber Monday offering is already down to 20% off.

166 Days have knocked theer shirts down to £9.99 for the week.

Social Fabrik are offering 15% off all their shirts today with the coupon code CYBERMONDAY.


mayamada hot lunch t-shirt

This is the first I’m hearing of mayamada and so far I like what I see. This British anime-loving brand recently released a shirt called first heist based upon some of their characters that are in a fictional (I think) TV show called hot lunch about animals with human bodies that plan to steal food. Yes, it’s a bit confusing, but the shirt looks cool so I’m just going to go with it. They’ve put together a pretty cool video of the photoshoot they did for the shirt too.

the laughing man t-shirt

Before you all get up in arms about how this design is from Ghost In The Shell and how they’re ripping it and how other things are wrong that only someone who has watched a lot of anime would know (I have seen minimal amounts, so forgive any mistakes please), The Laughing Man logo was actually designed by Paul Nicholson who works for Terratag (or he may own it, I can’t remember), so don’t worry, this shirt is 100% legit, and the 2011 edition comes in a few different colourways too, priced at £19.99 each.


My brother and I have started a clothing line based on anime (Japanese cartoon) . All our art is original. We don’t have much money but we print a shirt whenever we find the funds. :D

A list of designs we’ve done so far

[Andy: I’m not really an anime guy, but I know there’s a massive market for this kind of stuff, the designs are really nice, and their web design is cute too.]

Astroboy by Gas

by Andy on February 13, 2009


There was a time not so long ago that I was partially modeling my hairstyle on an anime character that was more than 30 years older than me. Good thing I’ve stopped with that nonsense and have cool hair now.

Oh, and good luck trying to buy to buy the tee if you can’t read Japanese, but I can assure you that they do ship internationally.

Costiness= 5,040Yen, I think, possibly 10,000, either way, it’s a lot Buy Astroboy at [thanks, Geno!]


Lets form Voltron! by Local Celebrity [Review]

by Andy on September 29, 2008

What? Did I just manage to go a whole week without writing about a tee from Local Celebrity? I guess you could say the same thing about going a whole week without seeing a tee that was about Voltron!

Anyway, here we are with yet another Voltron tee that gets a lot more love from my friends than the usual arty stuff that I usually cover my unnecessarily-hairy torso with (you got a mental image of that? awesome!). As with the other Voltron tees I’ve reviewed from Local Celebrity, this one is fully licensed and features artwork that accompanied the show when it was first broadcast on television, which I think it almost a necessity in a culture that’s as otaku as anime people and tee people can be.

So, you’re looking at this tee and thinking, “hey, they’re printed it in a burnout-esque kind of style” or perhaps “I wonder how they got that vintage look?” Well, this tee is actually printed completely normally… except the print is on the inside. Unusual right? So, if you turn it inside out it looks like a regular t-shirt with the writing backwards, but I think that it gives it a good look, not necessarily a vintage look, but something reminiscent of a vintage look, which may or may not make sense to you. If you’re worried about having the print going directly onto your chest and the problems that you cause, you can’t feel the print at all, and the tee itself is super soft as well, in case you’d forgotten my gushingly positive reviews of their tee quality in the past.

Costiness=$27 Buy it at Local Celebrity



At the weekend after my friends and I had a very late brunch in Manchester I dragged them to the rather fantastic Urbis building to check out an exhibition called ‘How Manga Took Over the World’, which, as you’d imagine, was all about how Japanese graphic design style has influenced us in the West. I know purists will probably be a bit annoyed they called it ‘Manga’ rather than ‘anime’, but I let it slide since they probably just wanted it to sound more accessible. I only persuaded two of my friends to join me inside (the rest waited in the little park outside) despite it being a free exhibition, in fact, all the exhibitions at the Urbis are free. I don’t actually know much about anime, but I do know that I like the work of Terratag, Tado and Jon Burgerman, and those guys were represented in abundance, as well as several other artists that I recognised but can’t remember off the top of my head. The exhibition isn’t actually that big, I got around it in about 20 minutes, though I was rushing and not reading the explanations since I didn’t like to keep my friends waiting indulging my own interests whilst they drank medicinal Starbucks to alleviate the effects of the previous nights drinking. If you’re in Manchester city centre for any reason over the next few months (the exhibition runs until September 27th) then I highly recommend checking it out.
