All Hail Britannia! You could have that written on your next T-shirt! The Britannia T-Shirt is available in ladies and men’s cut from sizes S-XXXL and costs 3,000 yen (excl. tax). It is a rather simple design, but it says a lot. The shirt can be pre-ordered until 30 March 2018 and will ship out in the middle of May.

Since the new school year in Japan starts in March, this is also the time when new calendars are being released. This one is based on Attack on Titan and has an acrylic stand that reads ‘Dedicate Your Hearts!’, which might just be the right thing for fans who are starting their new school year. Also, this is a timeless calendar, since you can adjust the first day of the month to one of the weekdays and it will show you the right days.
