A DVD release of the 2016 Nassyi Fes at Budokan has been announced! It’s only available for pre-order from the 274ch site for now, but it will probably be available from other outlets at a later date. The preorder price is 3,996 yen plus shipping, and includes a replica of the backstage pass that staff members actually wore during the concert.

Funassyi-design boxes of gourmet Belgian chocolate? Why not?...

We Love Funassyi - Thu, 2017-01-19 14:48




Funassyi-design boxes of gourmet Belgian chocolate? Why not? These little chocolate boxes from BbyB can be preordered on the Funassyiland website and all official Funassyilands (note: the Osaka store is closed for renovations until April) from January 21 at 10:00 Japan time to January 31, with delivery in February - hopefully in time for Valentine’s Day. Each box retails for 1,834 yen plus tax, and comes with a Funassyi pin badge.

Back in July when a limited-period Funassyiland opened in Yokohama, a lot of people were hoping for a soft toy version of the Funassyi as The Girl In Red Shoes (see the Yokohama Funassyiland post for details on the Girl in Red Shoes legend), or as fans call her, Onnashiko - combining the word for female - onna - with the word for pear - nashi and adding a common female name ending -ko. Well now there is an Onnashiko doll - but it’s only available from the Loft website and the Ikebukuro Loft for some reason, not from Funassyiland. It comes with a matching red tote bag, plus other undisclosed Funassyi merchandise. It kind of seems to me like the manufacturer, Rapiit, wanted to get it out as a New Years lucky bag (fukubukuro) but somehow missed the deadline or something. But regardless of the timing, this cutie is probably going to be pretty popular. 

The Onnashiko doll and bag set will be available at 10:00 (10AM Japan time) on Saturday, January 21 on the Loft website (link), for 6,000 yen plus tax.

Another limited period Funassyi Cafe is opening this Saturday, January 21st, this time in Nagoya. It will be in the CoLaBoNo Cafe, which is on the 5th floor of the Sunshine Sakae Building (access info). The Funassyi Cafe in Nagoya will run until February 12th. For each Funassyi-themed item you order from the menu, you get a random Funassyi sticker. All the stickers are really cute.
