News Not-So-Daily Link of the Day: Haruhi Tissue Boxes
posted on 2007-11-17 17:29 EST
The Japanese store kamikau.com has begun offering The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya tissue boxes in 20 different styles in an exclusive online sale that started on November 12. Each style sells for 525 yen (about US$4.74, tax included) and features artwork from the high school comedy anime series on five sides — and incidentally, 100 double-ply sheets of plain white tissue. A complete set of 20 boxes sells for 10,500 yen (US$94.75). The site also offers a tissue-box-sized acrylic case for 2,100 yen (US$18.95) to keep the tissue in mint, unused condition.
If none of the 20 pre-made styles match the home decor, customers can run a free applet to create "My Tissue Box," a customized layout. For the same 525-yen price, each custom layout can include any five images from those in the 20 pre-made styles.
