Yukari certainly won’t have to worry about lack of affection anymore, as she and Nanyako are now available as full-sized dakimakura covers.
Straight out of the manga-turned-anime Locodol, the Nagarekawa Girls are shown in both their practice outfits and their bikinis — which Yukari seems a lot happier about than Nanako does.
The girls of Locodol (whose full title is Ordinary Girls Tried Becoming Lodocols) have become especially popular since their anime adaptation. In the series, Nanako and Yukari try to bring joy, pride, and (most importantly) tourism back to their little prefecture of Nagarekawa by becoming locodols — or “local idols” — and competing for nationwide attention.
The dakimakura covers will be produced by MS Factory. No price or shipping date has yet been confirmed for them.
