Oh man! I wish I had some money and a way to get a hold of some of that awesome Natsume Yuujinchou merchandise! It's one of my favorite anime ever!

Nyanko-Sensei approves of this merchandise and would like some of it for himself.


Nyanko-Sensei's reaction upon seeing the teapot.

I really like reading Gakuen Babysitters, it's nice to see some merchandise for it.

Wow. Nyanko-sensei really seems to have become one of the most popular mascot characters in Japan. As a recent fan of Natsume Yuujinchou (thanks to NISA's DVD release), I wouldn't mind having one of those Nyanko-sensei teapots myself.

Will be stopping by FamiMa on my way to work next week. I think it was the 8th when they'll start selling the Natsume-inspired food? =3

Maybe I'll have Tenya for dinner too since they're having a collaboration there as well.

Oh great! Now I'm imagining Nyanko-sensei doing the "I'm a little teapot, short and stout" song.

I live in the u.k., is there a way for me to get my hands on a Nyanko-sensei teapot and cup?

Not directly. You'd have to use a proxy or ask someone who lives in Japan.

Not that it wouldn't be nice to get to know somebody who lives in japan, but it's quite complicated getting people to order stuff for oneself generally so I think I'll just leave it, thankyou for the information. Or I guess I could see if there's a site that buys this stuff from within japan and then ships it internationally, there probably is... I'm kinda skint anyway ;A;

Today was the release of the FamiMa x Natsume collaboration foods. I was only able to buy the dango-like donuts. Everything else was sold out. =((((( Hopefully they have a restock tomorrow.

Ah why when I am no longer in Japan. Sad

On another note anyone looking for a proxy I recommend Treasure Japan. I am not sure if they are the cheapest necessarily but I've always had great experience with them.

I am trying to tell myself I don't need that teapot...but failing. lol

Natsume x Tenya collaboration.

So many collaborations for Natsume's 10th anniversary!


PS The dango-like donuts were really good!
