Mitsui Real Estate Residential has turned to the power of anime to promote their property, transforming massive buildings into equally gargantuan mechs that will surely appeal to younger and older generations alike and hopefully gull more of them into helpfully inflating Tokyo’s China-fueled real estate mini-bubble – if only such constructions were available to purchase.

Evangelion Apartments



Some cheeky but canny realtor has opted to market a number of properties using the characters of Neon Genesis Evangelion.

If you ever fancied living in a property capable of setting Asuka’s mind at ease, or of reducing Shinji to a quivering mass at the prospect of living one minute from the station, these may be the ones for you…

Japanese Narrow Housing


An exercise in space management or one of desperation? It looks as though entering both the car and the building will prove challenging, to say nothing of parking.

Renter Sues Landlord Over Ghost

Itoshiki Kana - H Ghost Manga

A renter is suing his landlord based on the fact he was not told the property is supposedly haunted, for ¥5,000,000 ($50,000 – not insignificant by the paltry standards of Japanese settlements). He apparently rented the property ignorant of the alleged supernatural presence, opened an eatery there, and after being told by a friend of the ghostly presence, he claims to have witnessed spectral apparitions and heard strange noises. Now he wants his key money back, as well as some compensation to make up for the undead onslaught.

This sort of thing actually has a whole body of legislation and jurisprudence surrounding it – it is called “stigmatised property”, and frequently there is a duty to disclose such circumstances, though the actual existence of spectres is not something the courts care to deal with. Though usually this applies to not being able to resell a property, rather than merely being an inconvenienced renter. On the other hand, these properties can be made into valuable investment opportunities. Via Itainews.
