As we sit down for an interview, Tokyo Comic Convention Committee Chairman Mitsuaki Munegumi casually points to a glass case in the center of the room.

“There’s actually a real ‘Star Wars’ lightsaber in there,” he says, and reaches over. He pulls out a hilt prop that the Count Dooku character, played by the late Christopher Lee, used in the 2002 film “Star Wars: Episode II — Attack of the Clones.” This is only one of many authentic Hollywood props stored in the room, including a Chucky doll from the “Child’s Play” horror series and a hydrogen fuel cell that Arnold Schwarzenegger’s T-850 character had in its chest in “Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines.”

In a time of both misinformation and too much information, quality journalism is more crucial than ever.
