Hunter × Hunter anime fans now have a new way to hold a piece of the anime in their own hands. The Premium Bandai website is offering an iPhone case inspired by the Beatle 07 cellphone that appears in the series.

In Yoshihiro Togashi's original manga and its anime adaptations, the Beatle 07's features include the abilities to connect worldwide with no problems and translate more than 200 languages. The characters Leorio Paradinight, Gon Freecss, and Killua Zoldyck are known to use the high-end device.

The real-world smartphone cover does not confer any special functions on the phones it houses, but modern iPhones already have much of the functionality of the fictional device. The beetle-shaped case's wings can open, and it comes with a Hunter License card. The case is compatible with iPhone 6, iPhone 7, and iPhone 8.

Bandai Premium is accepting orders now, and the iPhone case is slated to ship in March.

Togashi will resume his manga on January 29. The manga went on hiatus in September, and Togashi announced at the time that he planned to resume the series before the end of the year. The manga had resumed from a one-year hiatus on June 26. Before that, the manga had been on a two-year hiatus since August 2014. What was initially a two-week hiatus for the author's serious lower back pain extended until April 2016.
