Internationally famous horror manga artist Junji Ito, whom we recently interviewed, has created many memorable characters, perhaps Tomie being the most famous. But the dark and creepy oddball kid Soichi Tsuji surely comes close behind. With his pale, anemic face and his evil smile invariably chewing on iron nails, his appearance is hard to forget.

If you have plans to travel to the Tokyo area this summer and happen to be a Junji Ito fan, let alone a Soichi fan, then you'll definitely want to add this to your list (and make room in your luggage): A limited shop focused on Soichi will be opening in Tokyo from July 5th to September 1st, carrying goods ranging from T-shirts, hoodies, tote bags, cases, plastic folders, acrylic stands and keychain accessories.

Soichi's Selfish Store in AMNIBUS STORE

In a collaboration with the animated series Junji Ito Collection, AMNIBUS STORE, an original manga and anime goods retailer operated by Arma Bianca Co., Ltd., will open their shop 『双一の勝手な購買部 in AMNIBUS STORE』, which translates as "Soichi's Selfish Store."
