Not-So-Daily Link of the Day: The Office Cosmo Elephant company is offering pre-orders for Cutie Honey The Live whiskey bottles and Cobra Whiskey 30th Anniversary sets on its online Charassyu store. Cutie Honey The Live was last year's live-action adaptation of Go Nagai's original magical girl manga. The Cutie Honey bottle (pictured at right) is shaped like the title character, complete with the series logo and a red heart mark on the rear.
The Cobra set marks the 30th anniversary of Buichi Terasawa's Space Adventure Cobra pulp manga, which has spawned two new video series, another television series, and reportedly a Hollywood film offer. The logo-embossed bottle comes with an etched stainless-steel flask.
Both the Cutie Honey and Cobra whiskeys will ship in October in Japan. Charassyu already offers a porcelain whiskey bottle sculpted and painted like Nagai's Mazinger Z robot.
