Special edition Takenoko no Sato biscuits feature Lum with candy-inspired horns
Everyone's excited about the new Urusei Yatsura anime, including Japanese convenience store chain Lawson! To celebrate the return of Lum, Ataru, and their many friends, the stores will be offering special-edition confections and goods themed around the Rumiko Takahashi classic.
Central to the collaboration are collaboration boxes of Takenoko no Sato, meiji's popular chocolate-dipped biscuit snacks. Two special box designs will be released for chocolate and chocolate-strawberry varieties, featuring the bamboo shoot shaped sweet in place of Lum's iconic horns:
Each box also comes with one of four magnets with a takenoko-horned Lum:
Die-cut sticker sets, lunch totes, and acrylic stands will also be available, and participating stores will display art of Lum:
Campaigns during the collaboration could earn you one of seven clear files, one of several bromides, and a Lum QUO card worth 10,000 yen:
The campaign kicks off at Lawson stores nationwide on October 4, in advance of the new anime—which hit the airwaves in Japan on October 13.
