Cell Phone Creepers

Right now, my grandparents are watching a Japanese drama called “Gegege no Nyobo,” which is based on the memoirs of a famous manga artist’s wife. The program got me thinking back to when I used to watch the artist’s manga-turned-anime, “Gegege no Kitaro.” It was a dark series dealing with the ghosts and ghouls of the supernatural world. The main character is a kid with a missing eye. His buddy is a talking eyeball who likes sitting in water bowls. Yeah, go figure.
As creepy as the show looked, it left such a strong impression on my childhood that when I saw these stickers at Tokyu Hands I stood there staring longingly for several minutes before finally peeling myself away:

These aren’t just ordinary stickers. You use them to decorate your phone, creating ghoulish scenes up and down your keypad. And the stickers are durable, so you don’t have to worry about scuffing.
Cell phone decorating (otherwise known as “deko-den”) can be a work of art, though most of what I’ve seen is just pink and cutesy. I don’t know about you, but my taste palate has become oversaturated with Hello Kitty sweetness. Time for the dark and ghoulish!
