Sexy Arm Chair Figure Levi Wants You to Sit On His Lap

posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
No, really. He does.

Eren Jaeger may be the star of the runaway anime and manga hit, Attack on Titan, whose volumes top graphic novel sales in the U.S. and Japan, and whose Toonami anime series run has ranked #1 among its targeted demographics for its time slot. But every show needs its heartthrob, and viewers have opted out of Eren in favor of another character. Fans have locked their sights on stoic, clean-freak Survey Corp captain Levi. They seem to either want to date him or make him their dad.

The character's success saw Levi get his own spinoff manga in Kodansha's Aria shojo magazine which promptly sold out, leading to an additional reprint. The magazine has credited the series with increasing circulation numbers by 500%.

Kodansha's Frau women's fashion magazine capitalized on the character's popularity by putting him on the cover of its August issue, lounging in a chair reading manga.

Not to be outdone by aloof-Levi-in-a-chair, the Ichiban Kuji prize line is upping the game with smoldering-Levi-in-a-chair, coming in August to a LAWSON store near you. The figure measures 12cm high (about 4.7in), a perfect size for a work desk where Levi can stare at you and prevent any kind of productivity.

The campaign's other, less sexy prizes include:

Prize B) Eren and Mikasa Chibikyun figures

Prize C) Hange Zoë and Levi Chibikyun figures

Prize D) Jean Kirstein and Armin Chibikyun figures

Prize E) Oluo and Petra Chibikyun figures

Prize H) Character rubber straps (Set 1; eight types)

Prize I) Character rubber straps (Set 2; eight types)
