Interest Detective Conan Shirt Doubles as Black Org Face Mask
posted on 2011-01-13 09:05 EST by Egan Loo
At the end of the month, the cosplay outfit store chain Cospa will begin selling three new Detective Conan (Case Closed) T-shirts, including a Black Organization (Kuro-Zukume no Soshiki) one that doubles as a face mask of the manga's antagonists. The Black Organization T-shirt simply has the name of the international criminal organization from Gosho Aoyama's manga and anime printed in Japanese on the front. However, if the wearer pulls the shirt over his or her head, the inside of the shirt reveals the silhouette of one of the manga's mysterious foes as a disguise.
The other two shirts have "Mitame wa Kodomo! Zunō wa Otona!" ("The looks of a child! The brains of an adult!") or "Baarō" (Conan's catchphrase shortening of "baka yarō" or "idiot") printed on them. Although the shirts officially go on sale at the end of the month, people can buy them early at the Jisedai World Hobby Fair '11 Winter event, which runs in multiple Japanese cities from January 16 to February 6.
