Capsule Toy Puts Manga Girls in Your Ears

After "Madoka Magica" variants, Cup no Fuchiko figures inspires new "The Sleep Twins An & Min" capsule figures

Last year, comedy manga artist Katsuki Tanaka designed the Cup no Fuchiko capsule toy, a series of mini figures of a girl in a blue and white uniform that sits on the edge of drinking glasses in six different poses. They became something on a phenomenon, selling almost 4.5 million figures and spawning this fall's Madoka Magica redesigns.

 

The next iteration from Kitan Club is the new "The Sleep Twins An & Min." 

 

Just launched, the assortment of airplugs have hit Japanese vending machines at 300yen a capsule. The line features ‘Hanging An’, ‘Acrobatic An’, ‘Pajama An’, ‘Reading Min’, ‘Upside-down Min’, and ‘Face-out An & Face-in Min’.
