Nadesico Turns 20 with New Ruri Hugging Pillow Cover
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Last week marked Japan's annual "Coming of Age Day" where individuals who turned the age of majority within the last year put on their very best and celebrate together. Anime fans also celebrated series that are now the age of majority, i.e. 20 years old. One of these shows is Martian Successor Nadesico, a sci-fi comedy starring the stone-faced, silver-haired Ruri. The character herself isn't 20 yet, but she also won't be born for another 179 years.
The website Hobby Stock is celebrating this series' milestone by offering a new hug pillow cover of Ruri. The pillow cover is double-sided, one showing Ruri clasping her hands while wearing her work uniform and the other side showing the character in a swimsuit with a flower crown. It costs 12,000 yen (US$ ) and is expected to ship in March.
After 20 years, Ruri still holds a place in fans' hearts. The pillow case is ranked in the top 10 for the website's character goods and overall goods.
