How are you planning to celebrate Shizuo’s upcoming birthday?
Why, with a birthday cake of course!
Nope, I didn’t make that… if I did, I would like to see a more colourful cake similar to these Prince of Tennis chocolates :D or something else with a more fun design. But I do like dark chocolate and how the printed image looks.
Anyway, I’m sure hardcore fans will be celebrating Heiwajima Shizuo‘s birthday which falls on 28 January with cakes like this fan-made Togainu no Chi cake, so the creators of DRRR!! want to take a bite out of their wallets too.
Looks yummy, isn’t it? It’s nice of them to leave some space on the top right hand corner for you to stick the candles in. If I had a cake like that, I would be tempted to lift that whole piece of chocolate from the cake and chomp on it as it is kekeke :D
However, it would have been a lot more interesting if they included stuff like a voice CD or bromide. You know, typical stuff to sucker less hardcore fans into buying these goods for keeps. Unless they’re thinking that we’ll keep the cake box lol~ But then again, you never know. The box might be darn attractive. *_* I feel quite stupid for thinking this. OTL;;; I’m just wondering though, if these goods were a lot cheaper or easily obtainable, then most likely we wouldn’t feel so uptight about it.
Anyway… I guess we can expect similar photo cakes with other characters coming up. It’s quite fun to see what other things they can come up with. Oh… there are perfumes of DRRR!! characters too. Also by the same manufacturer. There are other food items for DRRR!! at Animate Japan store but most of the time, they are food items like crackers and curry that are repackaged with whichever anime’s images that they are selling at that time.
