The special made-to-order item set will be shipped on November 13, 2020
Starting with the Gintoki one in January 2020, the Tokyo-based anime merchandise company MOVIC has been offering special birthday item sets that contain a teddy bear doll inspired by the Gintama characters. Its latest entry is Sougo Okita, who celebrated his birthday on July 8.
In addition to a 23 cm-tall teddy bear doll wearing the Sinsengumi uniform and his iconic eye mask, the "Sougo Okita Birthday Set" also includes four limited items using a newly-drawn visual of him: an acryl keyholder, a hologram tin badge, a photo card, and a photo frame. Same as the previous dolls, the date of his birthday is embroidered on the sole of the doll's left foot.
Pre-orders for the 11,000 yen (about 102 US dollars) made-to-order set will be accepted on the Animate stores across Japan, and Animate and Movic's official online stores from today to August 12. Its scheduled shipping date is November 13.
