XBOX with free pillows?

Dont take my word for it, here

http://www.wired.com/news/games/0,2101,62176,00.html

some memorable quotes:

-"You can't take the voluptuous, bikini-clad vixens from Tecmo's Dead or Alive Xtreme Beach Volleyball to bed with you -- but if you buy an Xbox in Japan this March, Microsoft will give you the next best thing. "

-"These character-print dakimakura came into existence in the late '90s as a way for animé fans to get up close and personal with their cartoon sweethearts."

-"...very popular among fans of doujinshi (manga fanzines), but over the past couple of years they have secured a spot in the otaku (obsessed fan) market."

-"but otaku's relationships with their dakimakura can get a little more personal. Searching link removed is enough to understand the people who buy these items," said Muto. "

for some reason they said the characters in DOA are 'animé' :| thats why I am putting this thread in General Anime.

-"I guess they're supposed to be used ... as pillows to hug, of course ... and for other obscene purposes that I would rather not mention."

how nice for him to point this out

That's definitely not true. But dakimakura, maybe.

Be more careful when posting links, the removed link lead to some unsuitable material for kids.

nothing wrong with sleeping on a pillow like that...(proud to be otaku)

its when you start humping your pillow that you begin to have the problem

The concept of a "hugging pillow" isn't a bad idea, but when there's a picture of a naked 14 year old girl on it.....Christ.

Kasumi's Pillow pic not that bad.
If you search Yahoo Japan. you'll seen lots of anime ones. (Mosly Doujin, and some are from official anime website, but only sell them in conventions.)
I've seen alot worse. (Hentai/Xtreme Ecchi ones.)

There are also bedsheets, too.
Now that's bad.

Example: http://www2.ezbbs.net/19/techside/img/1076472527_1.jpg
If the pic it's not appropriate in here, then I'll just take it out.
PLZ let me know, thanks.

What? you never blown your nose in bed before? If you dont have any tissues, all that sticky and slimy mucus that shoots out can get all over your hands and chest. And then you gotta whipe your hands on the sheets, and thats exactly what this guy with the nudie-animechick sheets doesnt want. He's just protecting his investment.

O.o... yah


Thats just wierd, Pillows with an X-Box just so you can.....um......imagine your impossible fantasy in strange and unsayable ways?


I really dont mind people getting this, but if you guys hug it too much, a "hug" can become something else.

Let's hope the pillows are extra soft so you dont hurt your....*cough*... in bed

Your wife/girlfriend/mom may get mad.
