Update 17 August 2012: Good news! -Sold out- JJ dakimakura cover to be reissued end September 2012! Preorders are now open!
From what we know, JJ’s hugging pillow cover was sold out on the first day during comiket 82 within ONE HOUR or less. The high demand took the staff by surprise. With overwhelming request for a reissue, Karin Chatnoir announced on their blog that we can now order the reissue on their online shop.
However, the price is now at 12,000 Yen (12,600 Yen w/tax) SIGH. But that’s the price we would end up paying our proxies if they managed to get it during the event. I understand they have to make it more expensive due to various reasons (like probably to be fair to people who turned up at the event specially to buy it and also to make some extra money) I’ll be ordering one from their store since my proxy failed to get it for me during comiket. It’ll still come with the special paper that has a short comic drawn by the chibi character artist, Pekoha ぺこは.

They don’t ship internationally nor accept credit cards. So you still need a proxy to buy it but you can choose from probably cheaper ones than event proxies. Good luck everybody! Last checked, there are still 72 left in stock.

There we have it, seme and uke JJ on the dakimakura! Seme JJ doesn’t look that strong from the small image but I sure love that bod! Uke JJ sure is sexy. I feel that the posing reminds me of Kichiku Megane’s Saeki Katsuya dakimakura released by Spray. Can’t believe that my prediction was this close ^^;; Placed side-by-side. What do you think? I’m a little disappointed in a way but overall it is still smokin’ hot! Must get :D

Apart from the price, no other information was provided about the dakimakura. I hope it’s a full-sized one with new illustration :D From the title, I think it’ll be double sided with seme JJ on one side and uke JJ on the other. Probably something like the Saeki Katsuya dakimakura from Kichiku Megane. Can’t wait to see the final artwork!
Other items like drama and music CDs will be on sale during the event but only the dakimakura is new. I’ll update this post if there is new information!
