Juvenile Delinquent - for the blinged-out zoot suit look. The suits are classic zoot, but the accessories are totally blinged-out. Gold necklaces, sunglasses with decorated with diamonds, tie pins, canes and tattoo inspired wife-beaters. They also have casual shirts and some women's clothing. For the super-style set.

Armored Galley - "Bringing out the aggressor that's hidden deep inside you" is the theme of the Armored Gallery. It sells the most realistic and expensive airsoft guns ever. Guns are illegal in Japan, and maybe that is part of the fascination. Entering this store is like walking into a Wal-Mart in the middle of the US with racks and racks of guns. They look so real; it is hard to believe that people only use them to play mock military-stytle games.
