Top 35 World Trends in May

From Anime-Themed Amusement Parks to Tension-Alleviating Travel Pillows

— May 26, 2019 — World
The list of May 2019 world trends is globally progressive, with concepts that explore travel, new collaborative products and services, and much more.

One of the standout launches this month occurred in the Hyogo Prefectural Awajishima Park. It fused together anime themes in the form of an entire amusement park full of interactive rides and activities for fans alike. The 'Naruto & Boruto Shinobi-Zato' park is designed to imitate the village in the anime series and brings life to entertainment and media in a new and immersive manner. Another great worldly concept this month is travel-centric -- the 'Halo' travel pillow alleviates tension around the neck during travel, making it functional through transportation. It can also be used as a meditation pillow and yoga seat for versatility.
