Manga Series ‘Eren the Southpaw’ Hijacks Reebok Harajuku and Shibuya Stores
Reebok has appointed a number of popular artists in Japan and abroad to take part in their new campaign titled ‘Life is Not a Spectator Sport -Move, Move!-’ This collaboration started in March 2022.
As a part of this collaboration, Reebok is teaming up with the manga series Eren the Southpaw. Kappa’s popular ensemble drama highlights a number of creators, and has a very poignant tagline: “To all those who couldn’t become geniuses.” Reebok’s brand message matches this and is meant to be a manifesto for life, telling people to never give up, act on their own convictions, and find their own path.

Original Scene from Eren the Southpaw
To commemorate the release of Reebok’s flagship model INSTAPUMP FURY 95 in Sax Blue, a huge piece of window art was redrawn by Kappi. The artist also provided an original manga featuring an entirely new story. Fans can find this at the Reebok Classic Store Harajuku and on the official Reebok Twitter page. The Reebok stores in Harajuku and Shibuya have also been completely taken over by Eren the Southpaw, completely decorated from top to bottom in images from the series.

The popular manga series Space Brothers has sold over 28 million copies since it began serialization in 2007. After 15 years, the story is approaching its climax, with the two main characters finally landing on the moon. With fans of the series anxiously awaiting the story’s conclusion, the event will be the perfect place to celebrate. It will be split into two areas: the Shibuya Space School and the Space Cafe.
Shibuya Space School will take place on the SHIBUYA SKY observation deck, and is a fun and educational production that will teach visitors about space using VR and an exhibition of equipment used in space travel. Guests can also enjoy a photo spot featuring the moon over Shibuya, an astronomical observation class for both parents and children, and a talk show about the thrill of space travel.
On the 12th floor, guests can visit the Space Cafe. Inspired by a 1970s coffee shop, the location is the perfect spot for fans to mingle, read Space Brothers, or partake in some space-inspired treats exclusive to the event.
