Persona 4 Jersey with Pinbadges - Preorder

In the relatively recent Persona 4 video game, a character named Chie Satonaka wears a green jersey that sort of looks like Bruce Lee's yellow jumpsuit from The Game of Death movie. When we find out that Chie is a major martial arts fiend, her clothing choice makes sense.

Cospa has started preorders for a green jersey which is based on Chie's jacket from the game. The yellow "racing stripes" on the arms are supposed to give a sense of speed to the outfit even if your fists of fury aren't really that furious. To recreate the jersey as authentically as possible, Cospa also throws in the three badges that Chie wears over her heart in the game.

Preorders are welcome to ship in mid-late December 2008 at JPY10,000 or US$105.90 from NCS. Please select your jacket size from Small or Medium - Unfortunately there isn't a Large or X-Large size for this product.

Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu SOS Dan Live T-Shirt - Preorder

The popular Suzumiya Haruhi serial features a heroine who is oddly named Suzumiya Haruhi. She's special in more ways than one and her charms have captured the hearts of fans around the globe. Cospa and other manufacturers have released a number of products related to the Suzumiya franchise and the latest is a black t-shirt which features the following text on the top of the tee:

Listen to my Song!

Beneath that powerful slogan is an image of Team SOS and the names of Suzumiya's partners in crime including Yuki Nagato, Mikuru Asahina, and Itsuki Koizumi. Below those names is the group's banner of "Team SOS Live in Prefectural North High School." The shirt is available in M-L-XL sizes but no small size is being offered. This one's for the big boys. Preorders are welcome to ship in mid-late November 2008.

Ar Tonelico 2 Chroche 1/8 Scale Figure - Preorder

The Ar Tonelico games on the PS2 introduced the world to "Reyvateils" who are songstresses who use music to attack their foes. One of the Reyvateils in AT2 was a gal named Chroche who's a tall blonde with a bird-like outfit. Max Factory brings her to life with a 1/8 scale sculpt which measures 23cm tall and preorders are welcome to ship in mid-late February 2008.
