Y-shirt Akira plushie can be stripped! :D
First revealed during Wonderfest 2010 Summer, we now know that Y-shirt Akira is going to break another record of being the first male-character plushie that can be stripped naked!
Oh~ Nitro+Chiral, you guys are the best! XD After giving one-coin chibi Y-shirt Akira his own tiny-pee pee, you’re making such a cute plushie version of him again!
I wonder if they made his little bits for his plushie too? lol~ Well, I sure hope they did! :D
Here’s a shot where his little ass is revealed, wearing the apron from another Nitro+Chiral x Gift Plushie Super Sonicko.
The new plushies, Y-shirt and Military versions will go on early sale during an Animate Japan event on 9~10 October 2010.
Event: Animate Girls Festival 2010 (アニメイトガｰルズフェスティバル2010)
Date: 9-10 October 2010

Mmm… but don’t panic yet cos so far there isn’t any mention if these cuties are exclusives or limited editions or not since their goods page is not updated yet. I’ll update this post if I find out anything else. However, I think it is highly unlikely that they’ll be exclusives, judging from Gift’s past plushie releases. So far, they have not made any plushie exclusive yet.
Price of plushies have not been revealed but we can expect a range from 2800~3500 Yen :) So keep your wallets ready cos I expect these cuties will probably be open for preorder mid-October!

Slip in a small update 19 Sep 2010…
Title: Yamane Ayano illustrated [finder no hyouteki] Takaba Akihito Hugging Cushion cover
Price: 8,000 Yen
Just found out that Libre is selling hugging cushion cover (dakimakura cover) of Akihito from Yamane Ayano’s Viewfinder series! Pathetically small thumbnail but so far that’s the only one I could find… What about Asami? Why can’t we have seme dakimakuras too? Anyway, will update when I have more information.
