Yuri!!! On Ice’s Makkachin Tissue Case Heads to Real-Life Rinks
The official Twitter account for the Yuri!!! on Ice television anime announced on Sunday (November 27, 2016) that Victor’s dog-shaped tissue case is heading to the real world. In the anime, figure skater Victor appears rink-side with a brown tissue box case inspired by his own poodle named Makkachin.
The real Makkachin tissue cases will be made of fluffy “poodle boa” fabric and retail for 3,400 yen (about US$30). Avex Pictures plans to release the canine cases at the end of January. The anime’s Twitter will unveil a sample case and more details in the future.
