Anime has a natural knack to stretch one’s imagination and when it comes to the wide variety of seemingly endless licensed merchandise they spin off nothing perhaps stretches the imagination more than the art of the extra long body pillow! Okay these top four designs are relatively innocent in design and aren’t of the extra~long type as the real deviant and naughty one’s follow just below and there are so many designs, series and characters taking to the long pillow case it boggles the mind as to one’s fascination with these. And as different cultures produce unique musings and fashions these are surely of the ‘made in Japan’ allure and perhaps an oddity elsewhere.
My initial thought was how cute these are but when you see more designs these cases aren’t for the faint of heart as their allure and raciness almost seems to precede their practicality as cushion covers. It’s like sexy art for your sleepy head although their lengthiness suggests like their name does that they’re rather designed for sleepy time cuddling.
In addition from their fronts to backs you often get two totally different musings or poses if you will ranging from playful/ innocent to naughty/ really naughty* but perhaps what’s most eye opening about these collectibles are their equally high prices as the average cost seems to be anywhere between 8000 yen up to 10,000 yen =O! And nope, the actual pillow for inside is not included woh! =O.
Surely a cute or sexy way to get some Zzzzzzz’s however how will you ever convince your girlfriend that these pillow cases are purely for their art~? and how ever will you get to sleep? =P
