Winter 2019 Anime: Official Twitter Hashtags & Pages
2018 is almost out, guys and girls, and that means that another anime year is ready to take its place.
What makes a boring Monday, the start to another week full of work and studies, a bit brighter? Right, anime merchandise! Once again, we have collected some of the newest or upcoming merchandise now available for pre-order!
Scroll through the different items we found this week and don’t forget that MANGA.TOKYO has launched the perfect service for you to get a hold on these items, in case some stores do not ship to your country. It is called Otsukai and you can take a look at the website here.
If not stated otherwise, all prices are without tax (8%)!
This hot summer will get refreshed by the cute Sword Art Online merchandise released by Movic. It seems the characters of the series went on a beach holiday and are seen wearing swimwear and diving in the ocean. All these items are scheduled to be released on 23 August 2018. The main visual was printed on a big tapestry (70.7 x 100 cm) which costs 4,000 yen and also on a T-shirt which comes in only one size (Japanese male L size) for 6,000 yen. It also says SAO Summer Vacation!!!
There are also items that show the characters in groups of three. You can either go for one of the two glasses (800 yen each, 15.5 cm big) that shows three characters each or choose one of A4 sized clear files (350 yen).
If you like the characters individually, you can buy a key holder with just your favorite character on them. They are 6 x 6 cm big and cost 650 yen each. Or if you enjoy the individual design more than the full visual but still want to have all the characters, you can choose the useful sports towel. It is 34 x 84 cm big and costs 1,800 yen.
Another version of the comfy computer cushion is back, this time in an Eevee design. This useful plush costs 5,616 yen (incl. tax) and is 50 x 52 x 34 cm big. It comes with an armrest and the Eevee plush and is available for pre-orders now. The expected release date is October 2018. You can find it on Premium Bandai. Please also pay attention to the Japanese attempt on writing ‘Eevee’ in romaji, as the backside of the armrest pillow spells ‘Eievui’.
You can now match your phone case to your T-shirt with this new release of Amnibus! There are three designs available for each T-Shirt and phone case. The phone case costs 2,980 yen and fits an iPhone 6, 6S, 6 Plus, 6S Plus, 7, 7 Plus, 8, 8 Plus, and X. One T-shirt costs 4,200 yen and is available in either men’s or ladies in sizes S-XXXL. The shirt is 100% cotton and uses foil print.
chara-ani fans can now pre-order the precious Sharo figure in a cheerleader outfit. It is a 1/7 scale figure and 225 mm tall. Made of ABS and PVC, the figure costs 12,000 yen and is scheduled to be released in September 2018. But you can already pre-order her, so don’t hesitate if you are keen on having her brighten your room!
This Tsubasa is a 24 cm tall PVC figure produced in Japan. It costs 10,000 yen and can be pre-ordered until 15 August 2018. The expected delivery date is at the end of December. This figure shows Tsubasa in the Nankatsu Elementary School Uniform. You can find it at HKDS Store.
Kotobukiya will release these cute rubber straps in October 2018 and you can already pre-order them at their official website. You can either buy them in single packages for 500 yen (and risk getting a character you don’t like, because they come at random) or buy a box with all eight characters for 4,000 yen. If you pre-order the box on Kotobukiya, you will also receive an extra strap for the character Rin as a present. Only while supply lasts!
Clothes inspired by anime? Hell yes! ACOS will release hoodies designed after three characters from the series. There is a Saber model, a Rider model, and an Archer model. Each one costs 8,500 yen and is made of 100% polyester. You can choose between either the ladies free size or the men’s free size. They are scheduled to be released on 20 September 2018.
Another Ani-Art design for Re:Zero is here, this time either on a can badge or on your mobile phone charger. The charger is available in three different designs (Ram, Rem, and Emilia) and costs 4,200 yen. It is 68 x 120 mm big and roughly 9 mm thick. If you plan on purchasing the charger, please make sure it works with your phone and electricity at home as to not blow up your charger or phone. The badges are available in seven different designs for 400 yen each or all of them in one box for 2,800 yen. If you decide to purchase single packages, be aware that you will get one design at random. Each badge is 56 mm big. You can take a closer look at the items over at Amnibus, where you can also pre-order them until 30 July 2018. The expected release date is the beginning of October.
The Azur Lane scale figure of Akagi is a 1/7 scale model and 285 mm tall. She costs 15,800 yen and is scheduled to start shipping out in December 2018. It can be pre-ordered on Kotobukiya. If you pre-order her from there, you will receive an extra smiling face part for the figure (while supply lasts).
Youzen is 290 mm tall and costs 13,000 yen. Expected release date is November 2018. It is a very dynamic figure and can be ordered on Kotobukiya. If you pre-order it early enough, you will also receive an extra part for the figure, where his hair is a ponytail instead of open for free (only while supply lasts).
This is a pink EVA called Parfom Evangelion Unit-01: Awakened Ver. It costs 6,800 yen and is 140 mm tall and a non-scale figure. It is made using ABS and PVC. Expected release date for this figure is February 2019. You can pre-order it on Goodsmile Company.
Are you ready for Christmas? No? Then maybe Halloween? You should better start thinking about it now, because the first merchandise for both occasions got announced. The can badges this time show the characters dressed for different occasions in fall and winter. Each badge is 57 mm big and there are a total of 20 different designs. One badge costs only 300 yen, but you will receive one at random. If you want all of the designs you can buy a box with all 20 for 6,000 yen.
