Pirate dakimakura shop caught

Post by hir » Thu Nov 18, 2010 11:02 am

A Japanese net shop selling pirated dakimakuras was caught and the guy running it was arrested.

Screen caps from news show coverage:

Apparently KS dakimakuras were on their lineup...
(The site may go down soon.)

Good to see that justice is done.

My god, how interesting is that! Someone's actually made them! *laugh*
Nothing to be seen here. Do check out my little dabbling in the art of words, though.

Okay, so I get the Shizune/Misha combo and the Emi/Rin combo, but where did Misha/Emi come from?

If they weren't pirated, I would have so bought that Emi/Rin and Misha/Shizune combo.
It just goes to show that all good things in life are either fake, stolen, or unobtainable.

Exactly. It doesn't have so much sense, they only share an interlacement during the path.
Anyway I always thought this day would come, it was just a matter of time. Katawa Shoujo is rather popular and this means also merchandise for fans. I'm not interested in dakimakuras but I hope in the future there will be other interesting things, even not pirate.

Guess it. :)
If it's not like that, I was joking. Really.

This day has come a few times already, I believe. I remember someone else selling these dakimakuras some months ago.

They weren't selling any Hanako at all!

Fix'd

I remember a short-lived ebay seller having the same girl-combinations months ago, before the Hana-pillow came out. Must be the same people, otherwise she would've probably been included.

It's not very unthinkable if you reflect on it. It's just making money with a fairly wanted product.

Really? I didn't know. Interesting how they are always put back on the market.

You know, this really does give 4LS the ability to sell their own products. It's no different from like what LittleKuriboh and TeamFourStar do with their Abridgers merchandise. They already had those adorable buttons for purchase at that convention in Australia why not promote an entire line of official dakimakura and other related KS merchandise. I'm sure if these guys were willing to make cash off of pirating the idea, i'm sure the guy who actually drew them *cough* could enjoy doing it.
Otherwise these would be interesting things at a first time con i'm going to.
Actually this posses a question I want to ask any dev. "Am I able to print out a picture of Emi and iron it onto a tee-shirt I have for this upcoming convention, with maybe the KS logo on the back?"
