Not-So-Daily Links of the Day: The AsoBit City store chain in Tokyo's Akihabara otaku shopping district has revealed its exclusive bonus gift for people who buy all the Japanese DVDs of the Lucky Star anime: a telephone card, drawn by manga artist Kagami Yoshimizu, of the main cast cosplaying The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya dance. The card shows the main lead Konata (as Haruhi herself), Kagami (Kyon), Tsukasa (Yuki), Miyuki (Mikuru), and Akira (Itsuki) in the final pose from The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya's ending animation. An episode of Lucky Star has Konata playing homage to the "Hare Hare Yukai" dance of the earlier anime.
In related news, this year's tentatively titled The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya game for the Nintendo Wii console will have players using the Wii Remote to dance along with Haruhi, Yuki, and Mikuru. A deluxe edition of Kadokawa Shoten's game will include a poseable Haruhi figure in her school uniform from Kaiyodo's Fraulein Revoltech series. Nagaru Tanigawa and Noizi Ito's original light novels and later anime have already been adapted for the PSP and PlayStation 2 consoles.
