I've been having problems logging into my photobucket acct.
Just switch to flickr. Hiya~
Anyways. Wat is Otona no kagaku
Otona no kagaku 大人の科学マガジン is an adult
.... Science for adult. Literally translated.
I stumble upon this magazine on Boing Boing
few days ago and was really excited abt it. So I search a bit and was suprise even to find hlj
carries some of its products.
Basically, its a quartely science magazine that comes with very neat science kits/models for you to construct. Might be abit more challenging for us bcos the whole mag is in Japanese. The downturn is that the parts are mainly plastic.
But its cheaper to collect then the other education kits also produce by Gakken. (up to ¥11,600) I saw some sites sell these mags at ridicules prices US40+
imagine after adding in the delivery charges!! Craparse!~
But Hey!! Look no further!! Our beloved "Malaysia Adah Lagi" goooot also!!
I ordered mine online, but KL folks (if u r intrested) can head down to Kinokuniya to get urs!
Go look at the Japan section on the 2nd floor. So far I managed to get these issues. Vol 8,9,11,12,13 & 15
The only ones at the store. But I've try to backorder the rest of the issues. Fingers cross.
