I think I’m going to suffer from “bishonen pillow fatigue” if this goes on ^^;;
Not satisfied with your Prince of Tennis blankets of your favourite boys? NEW Prince of Tennis sleeping cushions featuring the boys in their pyjamas are finally here! From the trend of the releases, you can expect the other boys in the series to be released in similar designs as well. The official goods department are definitely taking the cue from doujin goods and finally realising the great market potential of fan-service goods like these.
As of now, these seem to be Animate Japan exclusives but keep a watch out for them at your favourite anime stores!
I personally won’t be getting them but I guess they’re a must for fans? There’s something about the illustrations that are lacking from the recent DRRR!! dream cushions by Kotobukiya. Took me a while to pin-point the issue I have with them. Yep, the expressions and the way their bodies are posed. The DRRR!! boys are rather seductive and relaxed like they’re really lying down and looking at you. In comparison, Atobe and Shiraishi seemed kind of stiff and uncomfortable ^^;; I find that their blankets look much better too.
But then again, that’s probably because I’m not a fan lol~ so I’m not biased XD
What do you think?
