One day before the madness that is Comic Market 83 begins, Arc System Works will also sell the “Noel & Mu-12 Dakimakura”, and a bonus “Guilty Gear & BlazBlue 2013 calendar” at confusingly-titled “Akihabara Denkigai Matsuri in Shinjuku 2012 Winter” event.

Details on the whereabouts of both events can be found below. First, let’s take a look at all that precious ASW loot.


1) “BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma” Noel & Mu-12 Dakimakura Covers

Product name (in Japanese):

Price: 10,000 yen (including tax, event special price)
Material: Spandex
Size: 150cm x 50cm

This piece of hot swag will be available at both the Akihabara Denkigai and Comiket 83, although the allotment at each individual event will be quite limited. At Comiket 83, the dakimakura covers will be sold at Broccoli’s booth (booth no. 214).

The illustrations you see on the dakimakura covers were drawn by series producer Toshimichi Mori (Mori P) himself.

So when you look at these beautiful covers, don’t think “ZOMG, Noel and Mu-12 are in… partial states of undress.”

Think “wow, what an amazing piece of artwork illustrated beautifully by Toshimichi Mori the talented creator behind BlazBlue, who poured his heart and soul into the illustration.”

Have a healthy discussion about it with your family members and friends.

2) Ark System Works 2013 Calendar

Product name (in Japanese): アークシステムワークス2013年カレンダー
Price: 1,500 yen (including tax, event special price)

A 2013 year calendar that features plenty of artwork from BlazBlue and Guilty Gear. This item will, sadly, only be available at the Akihabara Denkigai Matsuri in Shinjuku 2012 Winter (try saying that really fast three times in quick succession).
