Tokyo street-fashion brand Doarat has been doing it for a decade-plus, killing it with designs born from owner Kenji-san's wild imagination. On a walk through Harajuku's back alleys, guided by Secret Base owner Hiddy Kinoshita, the Toypunks crew caught up with Kenji at his office to talk vinyl and gear. Check it in Toypunks Vol. 2!
Kenji is mad cool and was a great host. Thank you, Kenji and Hiddy!

Undergound Japanese toy maker Rumble Monsters is interviewed in Toypunks Vol. 2, which we are now back to editing after getting several toy projects off the ground via Reckless. Owner and creator Wakahara-san talks inspiration -- 50s rock and roll and the subversiveness of monsters -- at Tokyo art gallery, The Ghetto. Thank you, Wakahara-san!
