K-On! Fans Spend 13 Million+ Yen on Mugi's Birthday

posted on by Egan Loo
TBS Store/ishop celebrate Saturday with exclusive birthday card

Fans of the K-ON! manga and anime spent a record total of over 13 million yen (about US$160,000) in just one day during the event held by the TBS Stores and online ishop on Saturday. That day happened to be the birthday of Tsumugi "Mugi-chan" Kotobuki, the girl who plays the keyboard in the story's high school band Ho-kago Tea Time.

Among the exclusive items that TBS offers are a 70-centimeter-long (28-inch-long) Mugi-chan plush figure and a pocket watch. Customers received an exclusive birthday card on Saturday, while supplies lasted.

The next birthday event that TBS is planning is August 21 — the birthday of drummer Ritsu Tainaka. The K-ON! anime film will open in Japan on December 3.
