Natsume Yuujinchou

Nyanko-sensei, from Natsume Yuujinchou by Yuki Midorikawa, gets painted on a teapot and cup set along with the other series of LaLa magazine. The other designs are based from Gakuen Babysitters by Hari Tokeino, Ookami-heika no Hanayome by Mato Kauta and Akagami no Shirayuki-hime by Sorata Akiduki. Each set is conveniently designed with the teapot placed atop the cup.

When you hear about Takashi Natsume’s cat spirit partner, I would bet that the first thing that comes to your mind is his shape as round as the maneki neko’s. And that’s exactly how the creator designed the teapot. It retains the stoutness of Nyanko-sensei.

One teapot and cup set costs 1200 JPY (14 USD). It’s a part of a pre-order campaign which runs until March 9.

We have previously reported that Natsume Yuujinchou will be celebrating its 10th anniversary this year. As a special give away for fans of Midorikawa’s supernatural shoujo manga series, LaLa magazine’s February issue comes with a free squishy Nyanko-sensei strap.
