These As The Gods Will Underwear are Explosive

posted on by Lynzee Loveridge

Akashi was a normal kid that liked soccer until a murderous daruma doll showed up in his classroom and made all the students play a deadly game of Red Light, Green Light. This is the premise of Muneyuki Kaneshiro and Akeji Fujimura's As the Gods Will: The Second Series (Kami-sama no Iu Toori Ni) manga and the latest inspiration for some limited edition men's underwear.

This year's 14th issue of Kodansha's Weekly Shonen Magazine announced that the publisher is commemorating the series with special edition underwear. The pair of red boxer briefs have the yelling daruma on the front and a countdown clock and "button" on the back with the words "Oshitanara Owari." This was the same design that was on the back of the daruma in the story, and the students had to push the button before the time ran out and everyone in the class was killed.

The button on the underwear is in an interesting spot. The second pair of underwear are traditional briefs with a scarecrow on the front and 634m (2,080 ft) written above him. An impressive measurement, to be sure.

The underwear will be awarded to 50 people via lottery.

Takashi Miike directed a live-action film adaptation of the manga last year. Crunchyroll is publishing the series digitally on its website.
