Blood Blockade Battlefront & Beyond Boys Strip Down for Merch
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
The male cast of Blood Blockade Battlefront & Beyond are losing their shirts for limited-edition goods at the Shinjuku Marui Annex store on December 2. The eye candy illustrations will be used for can-badge pins and acrylic keychains sold as sets for 1,500 yen (US$13).
The Libra Brand line already includes a key case, smartphone case, and super-deformed character keychains.
The second television anime adaptation of Yasuhiro Nightow's Blood Blockade Battlefront manga premiered in October and will consist of 12 episodes. BONES is once again animating the new series. Shigehito Takayanagi (Galaxy Angel A, The World God Only Knows, Dagashi Kashi) is taking over as director of the anime from the previous season's Rie Matsumoto, and Yasuko Kamo (Dagashi Kashi) is also taking over series composition duties from Kazunao Furuya. Toshihiro Kawamoto returns as character designer and chief animation director, and Taisei Iwasaki returns to compose the music.
