My fiancée and I are rarely go to bed at the same time. I usually roll in there about ten or twelve hours after she does because of our work schedules. That's not really a problem, except that she's taken to curling up with my good pillow at night. Which is sickeningly adorable right up until the point that I decide I want to take a nap.
So, I have a completely practical reason to spend sixty dollars (5040 yen) pre-ordering this Okamiden plushie. It's certainly not because it's the cutest thing I've seen on the internet since the first time I watched this. With the tail, it comes to be over two feet in length which will make it more than adequate for cuddling.
I can't figure out how to order it, though. The page is all full of squiggly lines. All I want to do is give them my credit card number and have them send me a fluffy Amaterasu in October that's totally for my lady friend and not something I intend to squeeze intensely. Damn this langauge barrier!
Maybe you'll have more luck (or be less intimidated). Better hurry. Pre-orders for the limited production run item have already begun.
