A theory of "punctured equilibrium", no doubt...

That reminds me, didn't someone else release panties with a manga or a DVD?

Najica blitz tactics had packaged panties.

I was worried they had packaged a pin in a condom, which would probably puncture the condom which would make the condom useless, I'm glad to discover this is not the case.

The condom pin is (pun intended) for pricks.

AIKa R-16 Manga Special Edition Bundles Aika's Panties

The Japanese publisher Hobby Japan has released the AIKa R-16 Turning Mission manga in a Special Panties Version which bundles a pair of "AIKa's panties." Akira Suzuki wrote the manga, and Noriyasu Yamauchi, the character designer of the original Agent Aika and AIKa R-16: Virgin Mission anime videos, illustrated it.

Do you find yourself yawning from reading manga at times? Do you wish manga came with something that would make reading more interesting? Well readers of AIKa need not feel bored anymore because the latest edition comes with a pair of panties.

Photos from Akibablog, AIKa and panties manga available at Amazon.


Actually, the AIKa-related work in question is a novel.
Suzuki Akira is a novelist who worked as an editor for ASCII.

And a picture on an akibablog.net page about the book obviously says, 「HJ文庫…ラノベ」.

Though Danny Choo too wrote, 'AIKa and panties manga,' also a picture on the dannychoo.com page regarding the AIKa-related product clearly says, 「HJ文庫…ラノベ」.

Mr Macdonald, 失礼ですが、やはり日本語が本当によくできる人を編集者にした方が良いのではありませんか。
And I'm sorry to say so, but though the ANN staffer wrote the reading of 「拝入蘭人」 as 'Hainyū Ranjin' in this ANN article, as I have said, the reading of 「拝入蘭人」 should be 「はいるらんと」.

Errata: The AIKa R-16 Turning Mission book is actually a novel. Thanks, tenkado-shujin.


It's a pleasure.

Since Suzuki Akira is a fan of AIKa, he wrote, '驚き、狼狽し、また、うれしかったのがこの仕事。なにしろ10年越しでファンだった作品の、それも新作に関われるなんて!' in the postscript.

As to the illustrations, what Yamauchi did is a part of them. The black and white illustrations for the book were drawn by Kurotama Showkai, who also did the illustrations for the Stratos 4 novels with Yamauchi.
