The Nakano branch of Mandarake, one of the most popular vendors of anime- and manga-themed merchandise, put up on its website Tuesday night a pixelated image of the man who allegedly stole a windup robot, a replica of the famous manga/anime character Tetsujin 28-go, worth as much as ¥250,000 Monday evening.
