I too want a Rie Tanaka pillow case, but only if it makes a fart sound when I hug it.

I never understood why they never really tapped into the market for male dakimakura, as I've known quite a few females in my time that would buy them. I mean really, what teenage female anime fan wouldn't want a pillow of her favorite bishonen, or male idol? There are certain otaku items that I don't think most girls would be interested in, but I think body pillows aren't one of them.

Not many choices indeed, but a good start.

Rie Tanaka's voice is pure love.

Regarding physical appearance, I think the community at large rates her higher than I would.

A body pillow of a character? Okay. But a body pillow of an actual person? Beyond creepy.

That said, do want Angel Beats pillow. That show has some nice-looking guys.

I still think that anyone over 12 that actually uses this stuff is a little... aloof.

@Meijiatron: They have a Sebastian one here (from Black Butler), but I don't know if they have the same one in Japan.

But I would want that Ryuuki one (that @Dormcat just posted a link to)

(... a friend of mine actually got a blank one and drew a picture of Lelouch on it and gave it to me as a birthday present. So there is always the DIY option if they don't have the character you want.)

This is quite interesting a body pillow that has a anime VA on it. I'm quite surprise when I heard about it.

Um...me? Personally, I've always found the idea of body pillows to be kind of...unsettling. No offense to anyone who likes them, though.

This pretty much sums up my feelings.

Hypothetical response:

"Seiyuu aren't actual people. They're celebrities. Just like idols, they're personas created to sell related goods)."

Just look at how fast Aya Hirano's seiyuu career started falling apart when she started actually speaking her mind.
