Just for Obon, these really cool Yokai Watch posters went up around Sendai Station, specifically near the Senseki Line entrance. The traditional elements and dated look really caught my eye, though unfortunately I did not have time to read carefully enough to realize there was a corresponding real-life event happening elsewhere in the city.
I really wish I had had the time to see what else was going on with these as the juxtaposition of fairly new animation and centuries-old aesthetics really amuses me and I would have loved to buy a tote bag, t-shirt, or other random good with this kind of design.
Still, at least I got some snapshots of the pretty things before they were taken down. On my trip through the station today, there were nowhere to be seen.
