Nitroplus Mascot Gets Hugging Pillow With Arm Parts

posted on by Egan Loo
Super Sonico's dakare makura cover is for men who "want to be hugged back"

The Japanese maker Aoshima's Skynet brand is selling a life-size dakare makura pillow cover of Super Sonico (Sūpaa Soniko), the mascot of the computer game maker Nitroplus (Phantom of Inferno, Demonbane, Fate/zero, Steins;Gate). Unlike the typical daki makura (literally, "pillow for hugging") for other characters, this dakare makura (literally, "pillow for being hugged by") cover has arm-shaped mini-pillow parts attached "because what men really want is not to hug, but to be hugged back."

The 160 by 50-centimeter (about 62 by 20-inch) dakare makura cover will go on sale in August for 10,500 yen (about US$130). (The actual inner pillow is sold separately.)

Update: Also in August, Nitroplus will sell Sonicomi, the interactive software inspired by the Sonico mascot.
