Animaxis is taking reservations for these cuties ^^ They accept paypal now, so that’s helpful for most of us!
Mousepad is (840 yen) (Btw, why are mousepads so expensive?)
I ordered the Maneki mini flag (630 yen) :P Reservation deadline is 25/02/2010. It maybe extended but no guarantees.
Quoting info from Animaxis’s product page: This is a “Manegi” (small flag / mini tapestry) featuring illustrations of the characters of the hit boys’ love game by Nitro+CHiRAL: “Togainu no Chi”, “Lamento -BEYOND THE VOID-” and “sweet pool”. “Manegi” was originally used in Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples, usually hanged at the water place to purify your hands. It is also regarded as a cloth to bring good luck, and nowadays this “Manegi” is used as a tool to bring in luck for business success, etc.
This item can be displayed inside your room with the rod and string that comes with the cloth.
The surface of the cloth is printed with the image Akira, Youji and Konoe dressed in Japanese men’s kimono. It also has “Nitro+CHiRAL” in Japanese hiragana, to give a good sense of Japanese taste.
Size: approx. 350 x 2200mm
Materials: fabric with full color print
Comes with display rod and string
The cute Valentine and Nitro+Cafe chibi versions are also available as mobile phone stickers (approx 65 x 165mm at 368 yen each).
I’m still pondering over the rest of the items… and I’m tempted by the mobile phone strap (893 yen) ^^ there are too many nice merchandise coming out this year! ~$$$~
Info about the strap: Decorated with cute metal plates featuring Akira, Youji and Konoe illustrated by Yu-pon from “Togainu no Chi”, “Lamento -BEYOND THE VOID-” and “sweet pool” by Nitro+CHiRAL, this is a lovely strap to decorate your mobile phone.
From the lanyard hangs a golden colored ring, attached to 3 golden colored chains of various lengths. One chain is attached to a plate depicting flower, second one is a chain in loop decorated with plates depicting Youji, Konoe, and a flower, while the third one is attached to a metal plate depicting Akira. Flower plates are semi-3D created with rubber, designed to look like “rakugan (one of the traditional Japanese hard dainty sweet, made of soybean and rice flour mixed with sugar)”.
Size: approx. 150mm long
Materials: rubber, metal
Expected release date for all items: April 2010.
