posted on by Jennifer Sherman
A few lucky Sgt. Frog fans will be able to receive a unique keepsake after the manga's 29th compiled book volume ships on May 26. The issue will reveal the details of a prize lottery that will offer 200 "Keroro Moai" figures inspired by the ancient statues on Easter Island.
Easter Island, famous for its mysterious and gigantic monolithic human figures, is the setting of the manga's 29th volume. The mini "Keroro Moai" statues will be made of sand from Minamisanriku, Miyagi. A ticket for a chance to win a figure and full details of the giveaway will appear on the 29th volume's wraparound jacket band.
Next year will mark the 20th anniversary of Mine Yoshizaki's original manga series, which has inspired various anime adaptations. To celebrate the anniversary, the franchise is offering several waves of special merchandise, and the first set will go on sale on May 26.
