Tokyo Otaku Mode First Purchase Offer

For free shipping and a $5 discount

Tokyo Otaku Mode (TOM) has been a site that I’ve frequented for over a year now. Apart from food, most of my disposable income is lost to either TOM or ASOS.

Right now they have a promotion going on where if you purchase $30 (or above) worth of goods you receive free shipping worldwide! I’ve also included a link which you can use to receive $5 off your purchase.

So onto some shows to keep your eyes on in no particular order…
