genuine merchandise

melancholic-drift  asked:

Where can you buy authentic Studio Ghibli merchandise?

Hi ^__^ You can buy Ghibli approved merchandise from many sites. I tend to buy most of my stuff from Yahoo Auctions Japan, which is Japan’s version of eBay. If you want genuine Studio Ghibli merchandise, look for stuff that has the following sticker on it. It comes in many different colours, and indicates merchandise that has been inspected by and approved by Studio Ghibli personally. And they are very particular about the merchandise they approve.

Do you know a good site that we can order ghibli merch from? I feel like the merch from EBay and Amazon don't have any affiliation with studio ghibli so buying from them is almost stealing from the company. So is there a way I can buy from the company?

Hi ^__^

There’s no one site I use to be honest, as it depends what it is I’m actually looking for. I tend to buy most of my stuff from Yahoo Auctions Japan now, which is Japan’s version of eBay. If you want genuine Studio Ghibli merchandise, look for stuff that has the following sticker on it. It comes in many different colours, and indicates merchandise that has been inspected by and approved by Studio Ghibli. They are very particular about the merchandise they approve. xoxox

The most important thing is that we now know that at some genuine, non-merchandise (like the Space hoodie AH was wearing where this panel was taken from) that are not not just the Maid outfit have large front pockets. This is a weird case where a feature of merchandise was what made canon, or at least foreshadowed it.

So we’re left with a question: did Hussie always have the idea that some class God Tier outfits have a large front pocket or is it an afterthought following the hoodies in 2011? Do all canon godtiers have large front pockets?

Hello, I was wondering if you could tell me where you got the plushies from the giveaway that just ended? I'm sorry if you've gotten this question already, I couldn't see an answer so I thought I'd ask.

Hi, I bought them from Otaku UK, which is a UK-based importer that sells genuine licensed anime merchandise, including lots of Ghibli. ^__^ xoxox
