No. Heck no. A million times “no”.

There’s usually nothing wrong with people trying to make a quick buck, especially if the ones on the other end of the transaction think they’ve ended up with a good deal.

Besides, I’ve bitten into a lot of anime-related merchandising offers myself. DVDs, CDs (character and soundtracks), fanbooks, figures – the list goes on. If it’s affordable and in good taste, I’ll probably buy it.

But this . . . THIS . . .

To collect, perhaps. It might be fun to have them mounted in gilt-edged frames and hung on the walls to frighten the kiddies. (And any sensible adults within viewing range.) But what self-respecting person would actually wear these?

Now I realise that we can’t stop anyone from snapping this stuff up – and having seen what sorts of things they peddle in Akihabara, I expect there are many who will. Tastes differ; it takes all sorts to make up a population. De gustibus non est disputandum.

So by all means, carry on and close the deal if you feel you must. Just be aware that the hacking, retching noises in the background are coming from my throat.

  1. Wearing them seems like a good way to guarantee a lifetime of virginity.

  2. Haha. Oh wow.

  3. @dm00: Makes an excellent gift for one’s enemies, then.

    @Kairu Ishimaru: Oh wow, indeed.

  4. More proof that Lucky Star is overhyped?

  5. @ffviiknight: Probably. Not even trash like this will take down my love for the show, but the unhealthy obsession of my fellow Luckytards is certainly having an impact on my view of otakudom as a whole.

  6. hahaha That :3 version is kind of cute😛
