Hey guys...another random question...was wondering if anyone knows what kind of backpack the main character in the anime watamoke wears and if anyone knows where to buy it?


To me it looks like sort of a satchel/laptop case but it had backpack straps....looks cool to me but I'd prefer it in black...


Thanks

Spoiler contains a link to Ebay




Or go to ebay.com and type:

Watamote Tomoko Doll backpack


Doing a google search, I also found one on Pinterest (though it links to Ebay) so you best bet is ebay.


If it turns out that the product is not to your liking (it is from China, renown for mass producing products) Then you could try requesting someone to custom build it for you (maybe you can find someone to do this on Etsy? I don't know of too many other sites)


Good Luck! Hope this helped.

My apologies, I should have read your question a little more closely . I found that one by looking up the bag for the anime (haven't watched it so I wanted to get an idea how it looked)


What you would want to look up are "Leather Bags" (The style correlates mostly with messenger bags)

Here is a really close match-up at amazon.com (from doing similar image search of watamote backpack).

Again, link is in the spoiler

Leather get's pricey, many of these bags try to stick to the more genuine roots by being handcrafted.

Here is another bag that fits the description closely and is only +$5 (heck, these are a steal of a deal)




If treated right, leather can last you a very long time. If you invest in one of these bags, I would highly recommend buying some saddle soap for the time-to-time maintenance.


PS: If you want something that looks a little different than what i listed, I would definitely try looking in Etsy. But be warned! Prices can get insane (saw some for 1,000+), though there are $59 bags if you filter/look through

Thanks for sharing this question, as I am now considering buying one of these bags (classy and good life-span bags)
