BATH One Piece Jolly Roger Towel - Import Preorder

NCS Preorder Synopsis
«©NCSX» The different pirate factions in the One Piece animation series all fly a variation of the Jolly Roger flag on their ships. In the case of the Straw Hat Pirates led by Luffy, their version of the Jolly Roger wears a straw hat and a toothy grin. The crossbones are positioned in a perfect "X" perhaps to signify danger and cause alarm. Cospa has started preorders for a One Piece Jolly Roger 100% Cotton Towel which may be flown like a flag in gale force winds and measures 135 x 68cm in area. Preorders are welcome to ship in mid-late April 2010 at JPY3800 or US$43.90 from NCS.

GEAR Moonlight Cradle Feena Fam Earthlight T-Shirt - Preorder

NCS Preorder Synopsis
«©NCSX» In the Moonlight Cradle eroge game released last year, one of the heroines is a pink-haired girl named Estel Freesia. This t-shirt from Cospa isn't about her. The shirt captures another Moonlight Cradle heroine named Feena Fam Earthlight who's a Princess of the Kingdom of Sphere which is located on the Moon. In order to become more worldly, Feena travels to Earth to learn about the natives, the customs, and the inadequacies of the humans. Cospa's t-shirt features an image of Feena in a swimsuit who's positioned in a lewd pose. Anyone who wears the shirt in public will instantly become one of the bravest and most dedicated fans of anything to ever walk to Earth. Preorders will ship in March 2010.

BED Dream C Club Rui Pillow Case - Preorder

NCS Preorder Synopsis
«©NCSX» Rui is a pink-haired hostess who works in the Dream C Club alongside an assortment of other hostesses. Her goal at the club is to convince customers to spend lots of cash on drinks and curry favor with the drunks in order to earn generous gifts. Although Rui caters to mature audiences during the midnight hour, her 9-to-5 job is teaching children.

Cospa has taken notice of Rui and they've licensed her likeness for a pair of pillow cases which measure 150 x 50cm (59 x 19.68") in area. The pillow coverings are made of 100% cotton and are designed to hold "body pillows" which are tubular and lengthy enough to cradle the entire body. We've seen some body pillows at stateside department stores go for about $10 but others are more expensive depending on the material. When the Rui pillow case covers a body pillow, her likeness is basically imprinted upon the pillow. In a sense, the body pillow becomes the very embodiment of Rui, pink-haired Dream C Club hostess extraordinaire.

Two varieties of the Rui Pillow Cover are available for preorder as follows:

1) Rui becomes a nurse. A nurse whose arm underscores her boobs.

2) Rui wears a pink bikini which is the exact shade of her hair. Outstanding.

Preorders are welcome to ship in late April 2010 at JPY8000 or $88.90.
