June 7Eleven Gintama Campaign – Sougo and Hijikata

Never got around to taking and posting pics of these 2, courtesy of Mi-chan. And one shot next to last February campaign Gin, courtesy of Nao-kun.

Quick recap on how this all works- during the time of prize campaign, you buy a blind ticket from participating stores via 500 yen. You then open the ticket and see what tier of prizes you can choose something from (A=1st/best,B,C, and so on down the alphabet). Gin, as always, was the A from feb. Sougo and Toshi were B and C from June.

Though a little bland, the second half of Gundam’s routine was pretty cool, the night time action and general appearance:

And the night action:

And lastly, the Odaiba exclusive souvenir shop, Gundam Front, separate from the Gundam Cafe nearby:
