The website for the Rootote canvas bag company revealed that voice actress Aki Toyosaki (K-On!, Toaru Kagaku no Railgun) will be providing another illustrated tote bag for the company's celebrity charity auction event. The bag is titled "I'm always close to you," and features a marker illustration drawn by Toyosaki. Money earned from the auctions will go to funds supporting victims of March 11's Great Eastern Japan Earthquake (Higashi Nihon Daishinsai) disaster.
The charity auctions will take place from April 2 to 9. Toyosaki's illustrated bag for last year's event ended at a final price of 1,566,600 yen (US$18,500). According to a Twitter post, animator and illustrator Poyoyon Rock (the alter ego of Akio Watanabe) was the winner of the auction.
