    as much tentacle hentai as humanly possible
    Seriously though if you want or have a Vita a 64GB memory card might be nice, those are Japan only for now. Can't really think of anything else off the top of my head.

    yeah they are available here, but the stores here stock them sporadically and there are many different varieties that are only available in japan,
    i got some hazlenut pocky once and i never saw it again , as well as some other flavors that are rare you cant just go and get all the kinds you like at any time
    i love mens pocky, coconut pocky and almond crush , and cookie crush pocky
