Avex Pictures' merchandise brand as'mono revealed pictures of the real-world version of Victor's dog-shaped tissue case from Yuri!!! on Ice on Monday. The real tissue case is just as cute as its anime version and the poodle Makkachin who inspired it.
as'mono announced on Monday that it is producing more tissue cases due to their popularity. The pre-order period for the new wave of production opened on Tuesday at anime shops in Japan. The cases are slated to ship at the end of April.
The official Twitter account for Yuri!!! on Ice announced plans in November to recreate the anime tissue case. In the anime, figure skater Victor appears rink-side with a brown tissue box case inspired by his own poodle. The Makkachin tissue cases are made of fluffy "poodle boa" fabric and retail for 3,400 yen (about US$30). Avex Pictures planned the initial wave of cases to go on sale as the end of January.
Anime shops in Japan are also accepting pre-orders for two kinds of Makkachin notebook and pouch sets. They are slated to ship at the end of March with similar pouches inspired by Yuri Plisetsky's Tiger T-shirt.
