posted on 2011-07-07 08:15 EDT by Egan Loo
Fans of the K-On! manga and anime spent a record total of over 13 million yen (about US$160,000) in just one day during the event held by the TBS Stores and online ishop on Saturday. That day happened to be the birthday of Tsumugi "Mugi-chan" Kotobuki, the girl who plays the keyboard in the story's high school band Ho-kago Tea Time.
Among the exclusive items that TBS offers are a 70-centimeter-long (28-inch-long) Mugi-chan plush figure and a pocket watch. Customers received an exclusive birthday card on Saturday, while supplies lasted.
