Because of Course It Did
Was there ever any doubt that this would be a popular item? I can’t help but think that the creators underestimated demand, though, if it sold out in the first hour of the first day.
Anyways, this may not be the last chance, though – the company is now taking reservations to try and help gauge and meet the high demand for this item. And believe me…they’re still advertising, even coming out with new promotional videos for it.
So, do you want to see what the pillow case looks like when fully assembled and stuffed with pillow? Do you want to see someone actually trying to use this 23-foot body pillow? Then scroll down below the break and take a look!
I scream, you scream, everyone at Comiket was screaming for their own monster girl. Specifically, the seven meter (23-foot) long hugging pillow of Miia the Lamia. Despite its steep 100,000 yen (about US$805) cost, the Tokuma Shoten/Monster Musume booth at Comiket sold out within the first hour of day one.
The pillow case was part of the booth display and had to be wrapped around the top pillar to show all of it.
The company is now taking reservations to meet the overwhelming demand for the item.
Comic Ryu is also streaming a series of videos about the pillow case. [One of them] brags about the pillow’s softness (“like a marshmallow”) and how it can completely envelop you, making it far warmer than other hug pillows.
