$479 USD Life-Size Anime Girl Mousepad Causes Material Supply Bust

At this year’s Air Comiket virtual event, anime/manga/game merchandiser Yostar unveiled its highly anticipated Handy Rest Dynamic Mousepad for Azur Lane character Kashino.

Azur Lane is a side-scrolling shoot ‘em up video game for iOS and Android created by Chinese developers Shanghai Manjuu and Xiamen Yongshi. The franchise centers around World War II-era warships anthropomorphized in anime girl that have captivated fans in Japan.

Originally set to be limited to just 100 units, the ample three-dimensional life-size rendering of the munition ship of the Sakura Empire has now caused a supply bust.

Priced at ¥49,500 JPY (approximately $479 USD), the pre-order that launched December 31 received a staggering 1,893 orders. Yostar’s Marketing Director, Dai Miwaki, revealed that the company received ¥93,703,500 JPY (approximately $905,350 USD) in total. Miwaki also apologized that the unexpected response has created a delay in the projected late March delivery as there is a shortage of the high-quality soft silicone used to make the mousepad, reassuring fans that all orders will be fulfilled.
