The 5 Question Interview #29 with Store Japan

We put 5 Questions to Nav from Store Japan...

Who are you and what do you do?

I’m Nav and I own Store Japan.

I started Store Japan as a opportunity for Anime fans to purchase the weird and the wonderful without the long waiting times. 

What can people expect to find at your table at True Believers

I will be showcasing various Plush Toys, Playing Cards, Key rings and Figures at the event.

What’s your favourite thing about what you do

I love my Japanese Anime and enjoy collecting figures, toys related to my favourite series. The art style available out there is fantastic!

What I love is the exploring aspect, finding those key moments from series that relate to the fans and then meeting the fans in order to engage with them and talk about series that I may have over looked

What was the first comic you collected

This was a very strange time for myself in the late 90’s as my first comic book experience came in Vancouver Canada when I was visiting family. I had entered a comic book store and at the time I was a huge fan of the 90’s cartoon X-Men.

Not knowing much about comics, story arcs etc. I had picked up a few copies of the Uncanny X-Men series and the rest as they say is history

If you had to recommend one comic (or story arc) to people, which would it be

Deadpool is a character that knows he is part of a universe and engages with the reader in a unique manor compared to any other character in the Marvel universe. The character is built up to be funny and not too seriouswhich leads to a pleasant read.

What I love about Deadpool is the fact he can pop up anywhere and really change the structure of a traditional comic book formula with his characteristics. The Deadpool series I really enjoyed was Deadpool Kills The Marvel Universe and I would recommend it all day long.

Thanks Nav.
