Forget Pillow Girls: Sleep On Sheet Girls

Japan is considering a move that may have a permanent effect on anime fans everywhere. This is important, so I want you guys to think very, very carefully: would you rather have a dakimakura (a full-size body pillow with a hot girl on its pillowcase), or a set of sexy anime girl sheets featuring the girls from Zero no Tsukaima or Ikki Tousen?


I know this is a matter of major debate, so I just thought I'd offer you some thoughts.


PROS:

  • You don't have to buy the body pillow AND the pillow-case, just the sheet. I mean, I'm assuming you already have a bed.

  • At ¥10,000 ($101 USD), they're cheaper than most of the body pillow cases out there, by anywhere from $20 to $100 bucks (minus the cost of the pillow, see above).

  • You have more possibilities for the art!

  • Already basically the same size as a full American bed (210x140 centimeters)


CONS:

  • Still expensive.

  • They seem to be just printings of art you've already seen, whereas the pillows get their own special art. And are double-sided.

  • Are perfect if you have a full-size bed, but too big for a twin and too small for a queen or king.

  • Harder to take them with you to display at cons.

  • You have to get rid of your old Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles sheets.


Okay guys...this is it. You need to make your choice. Dakimakura...or hot bedsheets?

If I could, I'd just take both. Dakimakuras you could hide in the closet or under your bed easier. I'd probably rather get Dakimakuras.

Dakimakura. You can see your pillow when you're in bed. You can't really see your bedsheets when you're in them though.

Dakimakura are easier to cry into.   T_T

If I had TMNT sheets, I'd keep those. I go with dakimakura.

Haha, not sure how I missed this back when it was posted.

A full sheet would be pretty impressive, but they're not as personal as a body pillow. Those have full-scale anime girls, which you can snuggle up with. You can hold them close to your heart as you give them long, warm, creepy hugs.

Clearly, the only option for any true otaku would be to buy both a body pillow and a sheet. Or go nuts like this guy:

I'd go for the body pillow. The sheets are, meh. Not that body pillows are ultra mature or anything, but sheets seem like something you'd buy for a little kid.

Also @Daniel_Newton:

Body pillows and sheets are just a waste of money to me, don't see the point of them

They are purely collectibles.

I don't really see pillows as a collectible, it seem strange to me

@Destinyheroknight: No different or more strange than people who collect stamps despite email existing and the face value of the most treasured stamps usually being less than what it currently costs to send a letter. Different strokes for different folks.
