Free! Bitter Chocolate Lottery Prizes Are Almost Too Sweet

posted on by Bamboo Dong

Taito Toys has unveiled their third set of Free! - Iwatobi Swim Club lottery prizes, and they're almost too cute to handle. Dubbed Free! ~Bitter Chocolate~, the prizes range from figures, to rubber mascot straps, to large stickers and cards, to multi-use cloths, and special framed posters.

The Makoto and Nagisa figures are 10 cm (about 3.9") in height, while the smaller figures of the boys perched atop blocks of chocolate are 7 cm (about 2.76") in height.

Each ticket costs 600 yen (about US$5.93), and each ticket is guaranteed a prize. Participating shops include 7-Eleven, as well as many anime and hobby shops, rental shops, and bookstores. The campaign will take place in early August.

For those who'd rather wait, Taito's next set of Free! lottery prizes are called "POP Candy, and while there are no images yet, if "Bitter Chocolate" and the previous set, "Sweet Macaron" (below) are any indication, these prizes will probably be just as adorable. And don't worry, there's already a fifth set planned.
