The Shinjuku Marui Annex department store in Tokyo announced on Tuesday its plans for a Yuri!!! on Ice collaborative event. The store unveiled Yuri, Yūri, and Victor in animal kigurumi on a promotional image for the collaboration.
The "Ice Castle Hasetsu Branch Office in Shinjuku Marui Annex" event will run in the event space on the store's sixth floor from March 1 to March 26. In addition to new merchandise available for purchase at the event, EPOS Card members who spend at least 3,000 yen (US$26) at the store will be able to enter a prize lottery for exclusive Yuri!!! on Ice goods. Prizes will include three types of life-size tapestries, three types of mini character standing cutouts, and three types of bookmarks. The department store will announce more event details in the future.
Namja Town, an indoor theme park inside the Sunshine City shopping complex in Tokyo's Ikebukuro district, also revealed the anime's star trio in animal outfits on Tuesday. The super skaters appear in cat-eared hoodies to promote Namja Town's Yuri!!! on Ice theme that will run from March 3 to May 7.
As usual, the indoor theme park's newest anime theme will feature a special collaboration food menu. Yūri's favorite food, pork cutlet bowl, will be available. Pichit's hamster and Victor's dog feature in two of the dishes. People who order from the special menu will receive an original postcard.
The collaboration's exclusive merchandise will include:
Acrylic stands (nine varieties)
950 yen (about US$8)
Die-cut cushions (nine varieties)
2,160 yen (US$19)
The event will feature themed gashapon prize machines, a Yūri hug game, a Yuri!!! on Ice purikura photo booth, and a Makkachin photo spot.
