It's a fairly rare thing for us to have an event with a Japanese manga creator, and rarer still to have a whole mess of signed books by that creator, but that's exactly what we've got in store right now!
As you may know, last week saw us host an event with MEGA MAN MEGAMIX manga author, video game designer, and commercial artist Hitoshi Ariga, courtesy of our good friends at UDON Entertainment and The Japan Foundation! Well Ariga-sensei was nice enough to take some time (some very late-night time, if his Twitter is anything to go by) out of his schedule to sign a bunch of books for us here at The Beguiling! Not only that, but he seems to have done quick sketches in many of them as well!
We've currently got the following signed books in stock:
MEGA MAN OFFICIAL COMPLETE WORKS (Artbook): $39.99
MEGA MAN MEGAMIX VOLUME 1 (Manga): $12.99
MEGA MAN MEGAMIX VOLUME 2 (Manga): $12.99
We're not charging anything extra for the signed/sketched editions, we just want to make as many Mega Man and manga fans happy.
Thanks again to UDON and The Japan Foundation for organizing the event, and to Hitoshi Ariga for visiting Canada and signing the books for us.
Look for pictures from the event at our Facebook fan page later this week or next.
