The franchise based on the manga written and illustrated by Reiji Miyajima, Kanojo, Okarishimasu (or KanoKari for short), and the Japanese chain store Don Quijote Co. recently had a collaboration event. Moreover, it kicked off in all of the chain’s stores in Japan on September 5, and included limited-edition products inspired by the girls of the series in racing outfits.
All of the products sold out except the ones based on the character Nanami Mami. The reason is likely the fact that many fans disliked her character in both the manga and anime. Of course, images quickly came from the scenes, where you can see that only Mami’s image was not crossed out. It means all the others sold out.
The series of products on sale were:
- 4 types of acrylic stands inspired by each of the girls, with each priced individually at 1,480 yen (approximately $14).
- 13 types of can badges with an illustration, with each priced individually at 550 yen (approximately $5).
- 9 types of acrylic keychains with different illustrations, with each priced individually at 680 yen (approximately $6).
- Sets of 3 A4 clear files (A and B options) with a printed illustration, with each priced individually at 1,200 yen (approximately $11).
- 4 types of B2-size tapestries inspired by each of the girls, with each priced individually at 3,500 yen (approximately $33).
- A shoulder bag with an illustration of the girls, with each priced individually at 3980 yen (approximately $37).
The event lasts until the stock runs out. If you are not in Japan but are fine with just looking at images and being sad, you can also check out a Konosuba event that’s currently ongoing. Kanojo, Okarishimasu has been serialized in Kodansha’s Weekly Shōnen Magazine since July 2017. Both its manga and anime adaptations are currently ongoing.
