Yuri!!! on Ice's Yūri Katsuki Pillow Cover Teased

posted on by Jennifer Sherman
Anime News Network's merchandise coverage sponsored by Tokyo Otaku Mode.

M's Factory tweeted an image on Friday that teases a pillow cover inspired by last season's hit anime Yuri!!! on Ice. The company only offered a sneak peak, but the pillowcase appears to feature the anime's protagonist Yūri Katsuki lounging in bed. He might be listening to his theme song "Yuri!!! on Ice."

M's Factory asked fans to be patient and wait for more information about the pillow cover. The anime's "See You NEXT LEVEL" message may also be teasing more, so Yuri!!! on Ice fans will have plenty more merch to look forward to soon.

Here is what the character looks like when he's not ready for a nap:

Yuri!!! on Ice face cushions debuted in November. Russian figure skater and fan of the anime Evgenia Medvedeva received a plush rice ball in December that was inspired by one Yūri gets.

M's Factory unveiled Mr. Osomatsu hug pillow covers last October. Other works to inspire hug pillows include Martian Successor Nadesico, Monster Musume, Strike the Blood, Girls und Panzer, A Certain Magical Index II, To Love-Ru -Trouble- Darkness, and Code Geass. English textbook character Ellen Baker received an unauthorized hug pillow last year. Voice actresses Haruka Tomatsu and Rie Tanaka even inspired their own hug pillows in 2013 and 2010, respectively.
