Store Stuff: Coupon Code on Inuyasha items

Rumiko Takahasi had a number of successful anime and manga franchises including: Urusei Yatsura, Mermaid Saga and Ranma 1/2 . But none have been so popular (in the western world at least) as her feudal fairytale, InuYasha. With demons, magic, maidens, an enigmatic ancient setting and occasional appearances by Kagome's big fat cat, there's something for everyone to like in InuYasha. While Inuyasha fans aren't as numerous as they used to be, the series has stood the test admirably and with good reason,  there's still quite fanbase. If you're part of this fanbase, we have a great coupon code for you! If you use coupon code SHIKON at checkout from now until July 1st, Extended to July 15th! You'll get 15% off all the InuYasha items in your cart , whether it be one little cell charm or everything in the section!

If you need help chosing what to spend your discount on we have a few suggestons:

Sesshomaru Ani Statue

This Ani-Statue of Sesshomaru is very detailed and looks great on display. As a bonus since it's made out of high grade plastic instead of resin, it's lot harder to break if you've got mischievous cats or grabby handed little cousins. Still mint (but not new) n the box, this lovely demon is normally $30, but would be $25.50 with discount.

Inuyasha Gashapon

If the Dog boy yourself is more your speed. We recommend this just as detailed, though quite a bit smaller, Inuyasha gashapon. This is an original Japanese figure by Bandai, and comes with all his original parts and stand. (sadly no box or papers though) originally priced at a budget friendly $9, he's $7.65.

(though for the record if you still want bigger and better, we've got the Inuyasha Ani-Statue available as well)

Kikyo UFO Catcher Figure

If you like shrine maidens more than demons or half demons, there's this rare and lovely Kikyo UFO catcher figure. It's a really lovely detailed figure with a beautiful serene face. The previous owner glued it dowb to the wrong stand which kind of an unfortunate thing, but not a huge detractor. Kiyo herself in in great shape and looks beautiful on display and how much time do you really spend looking at a stand? This rare figure was already priced at only $10 due to the stand issue and with discount is $8.50.

  If you don't like any of our selections we have over a dozen more Inuyasha goodies available right now, with the potentially for more before the coupon code ends. So if you're a fan you're band to see something that will look great in your collection. Happy shopping!

The Top Ten Most Underrated Video Games (As told by Richard)

Richard one of our regular contributors wrote this as a journal on another site, and while we're not all completely in agreement with this list we thought it well worth sharing here.


10. Pro Pinball: The Web (PC, Playstation) - As far as video pinball goes, you'll be hard pressed to find something competitive with this. It's incredibly fun, and high scoring so you feel really good about yourself. Aside from so-so sound effects, the game play here can get truly addicting and consuming. This game features super fun jackpot modes, great graphics and excellent physics, and this is especially true for its three sequels, Timeshock!, Big Race USA, and Fantastic Journey. I'd highly recommend this one for any pinball fan.

9. Zombies Ate My Neighbors (SNES) - I have to admit, this one made it to the list as the arbitrary winner of a list of a few other games that were last to be selected, but that isn't to say I don't have fond memories of this one growing up. You and a partner should you have one wonder your once peaceful suburban neighborhood, destroying zombies and other monsters with weapons such as water pistols, tomatoes, silverware, soda cans and more. Along the way you want to save the still living neighbors from being killed by the monsters. You lose if every living person (or dog) in a level perishes. You may also encounter things such as a ten story tall baby, killer clones of you and your buddy, and a delightful little level simply known as Chainsaw Hedgemaze Mayhem. This is a solid SNES game that doesn't short out of the fun.

8. No One Can Stop Mr. Domino! (Playstation) - This hidden gem hearkens back to the days when early 3D games, especially in the Playstation era, were often these quaint, quirky, strange, arcade-ish, and most importantly, very fun titles. Mr. Domino was a unique game of notable difficulty in which the player would control and anthropomorphic, walking domino as it would leave behind a limited supply of other dominoes at it progressed, and as the title implies, your little domino can not be stopped. The most you can do is slow down but coming to a full stop only happens when your energy is depleted, and your walking domino turns back into an inanimate little dotted rectangle.
The goal is to leave dominoes in front of various buttons on a repeating course, and leave a trail of dominoes from a marked spot and lead them to yet another button, repeating this as well as you can. Upon coming back around the course, you now run into your initial domino which will trigger some kind of action in the level which in most cases leads to the marked spot being disturbed. If a domino is there, then it will fall, sending any and all dominoes lined up in front of it tumbling to the floor. Do this right and you can create a course-length domino effect that's both impressive to achieve and fun to watch. Also on the course are health pickups, speed ups, slow downs, and reset tiles which reset the level back to default. The darker the back of your walking domino becomes, the less energy you have and the more urgently you need to walk over a health tile. Your health depletes faster as you progress to later levels. Pushing all required buttons in a level clears you to enter the next. So if you can, I highly suggest you pop Mr. Domino into your Playstation. And go ahead. Just try to stop him. I dare you.
