Dakimakura Review – Artoria Pendragon from Fate/Grand Order (NSFW)

Artoria Pendragon from Fate/Grand Order

It’s amazing – and more than a little terrifying – how much life can change in a month. I hope everyone who comes across this post is okay and keeping themselves as safe as possible. I’m personally doing okay; I’m working from home and trying to minimize contact with other people. It’s been a peculiar adjustment, though I know the vast majority of people in the United States – and certainly the world – have it far, far worse than I do.

With the situation being so bleak, hopefully this post can offer a little bit of entertainment. Being at home all day now, I think I’ll have more time to take photos, though then again, I just got Persona 5 Royale. I have to admit that I feel badly for all the delivery people who are still going house to house.

Dakimakura Review – Olga Discordia from Kuroinu ~Kedakaki Seijo wa Hakudaku ni Somaru~ (NSFW)

Olga Discordia from Kuroinu

Happy New Year’s Eve, everybody. Normally the year-end Five Favorite Figures post would go here, but I spent yesterday putting up some new shelving and did not have the opportunity to photograph figures. The activity was well worth it, however, being that one of the most intransigent deterrents to more frequent reviews is the obdurate reality that I have no place to put the figures once I take them out of their boxes. Having more space available should simplify things and that’s all for the good. Meanwhile, we’ll take a quick look at this dakimakura cover. I don’t really review pillowcases much now, partly because I don’t buy as many as I used to and partly because they’re not particularly interesting to photograph or talk about. That said, they’ve generally been some of the more popular posts on this site and as this character – Olga Discordia of the H-game and hentai anime Kuroinu – is quite the fan favorite in her own right, we’ll go ahead and talk a little bit about this pillowcase and Kuroinu itself.

Dakimakura Review – Shizuku Sawatari from Bishoujo Mangekyou -Wasurenagusa to Eien no Shoujo- (NSFW)


Happy holidays to everyone. The usual five favorite figures of the year post will be coming soon, probably a couple of days later than usual since I haven’t even photographed three or four of the figures that will probably be on that list, and there might be a figure review post before that depending on whether I have any problems assembling and setting up my new computer (specs here if anyone is curious).

Holiday time means that it’s also winter Comiket time, and although Comiket is obviously a doujinshi convention first and foremost, a variety of goods typically are displayed there – posters, music albums, video games, and, notably, dakimakura covers. I started collecting dakimakura covers not too long after starting up this site (nearly six years ago now) and back then, they were highly niche items that were quite difficult to acquire. These days, they are still somewhat niche but they are also much easier to find. This pillowcase, for instance, was bought right off of Hobby Search, with none of the contortions typically needed to procure unusual hobby goods.

Dakimakura Review – Rinne Amamiya from Pure Girl in Love (NSFW)

Rinne Amamiya dakimakura by Itsuka Miyatsuki

So I lied! Or more specifically, the plaster is still drying so the next figure is still awaiting her turn in the spotlight. In the meantime, we’ll take a quicky look at this pillowcase, which I’ve had sitting around for a while. The lady depicted here is named Rinne Amamiya and she’s an original character drawn by Itsuka Miyatsuki. Her “series” is nominally titled Koisuru Junjou Shoujo, or something like “Pure Girl in Love,” though as far as I can tell that title is a completely made-up thing concocted just for this pillowcase. The original product page even gives a very short and sparse backstory for this character, in which she tentatively offers her love to her chosen one, which is presumably the owner of this pillowcase. How adorable. As franchises like the Vocaloid series and Kantai Collection show, you really don’t need more than a pretty picture to successfully peddle anime goods.

Dakimakura Review – Suzuka Takasaki from Kokuhaku Lovers (NSFW)

Suzuka Takasaki dakimakura

There is an absolutely gigantic box in my living room. We will examine its contents in great detail in the days to come but first, we’ll take a quick look at a dakimakura cover. This pillowcase is a companion piece to this one of Kanane Kurashiki, which was sold at the same time from the same place. Both pillowcases feature art by Yoshiaki Katsurai, one of the better-known artists in the ero doujinshi industry.

Dakimakura Review – Kanane Kurashiki from Kokuhaku Lovers (NSFW)

Kanane Kurashiki from Kokuhaku Lovers

The winter Wonder Festival convention will be upon us in just a few days and as the tradition here is to not write a post about it, we will instead take a quick look at a dakimakura cover. This one is by Yoshiaki Katsurai, an artist perhaps most famous for his erotic doujinshi, which are published under the circle name Basutei Shower. He’s also known for his contributions to the character designs of Dakara Boku wa, H ga Dekinai (officially translated as “So I Can’t Play H” but occasionally rendered “So I Can’t Have Sex With Her” or “So I Can’t Fuck Her!”). The particular character presented here is Kanane Kurashiki, one of the main characters in the manga Kurohaku Black Rubbers, which is a volume of the larger series Kokuhaku Lovers.

Dakimakura Review – Nagato from Kantai Collection (clesta Version) (NSFW)

Nagato dakimakura from Kantai Collection

It’s pillowcase show-and-tell time! Believe it or not, the dakimakura reviews are some of the most popular posts on this site. Yeah, I don’t understand it either. It’s been a while since we last looked at one, so we’ll take some time from the figure stuff to take a look at a pillowcase from Kantai Collection, the big new sexy thing in anime culture. We’ve seen this sort of thing before, such as with Touhou, Neon Genesis Evangelion, and the Vocaloid stuff, all of which have established enduring appeal, and also with Black Rock Shooter, which flamed out with scarcely so much as a good-bye. Time will tell whether Kantai Collection will last through the fickle transience of modern culture. For anyone who hasn’t heard of Kantai Collection, it’s apparently a web browser-based card battling game, in which female characters named after Imperial Japanese Navy warships take on a variety of pasty-faced, glowy-eyed female adversaries, most of which are named after characters of the Japanese syllabary. I suppose that in this day and age, the United States Navy is an unsuitable opponent for this sort of thing, but I’m a little disappointed that there isn’t more fan art of the cute Japanese girls being accosted by personifications of Third Fleet warships. I mean, given how many famous US Navy officers served in the war, there are, at the least, some really good NTR possibilities there. Not that I like NTR or anything. But anyway! We have here a pillowcase featuring Nagato, one of the most famous ships of the Combined Fleet and, from what I can tell, one of the more popular characters from the series. Let’s take a look at her.

Dakimakura Review – Kinmokusei from the Art of Carnelian (NSFW)

Kinmokusei dakimakura by Carnelian

It’s time for pillow talk. Right now, the new hotness in the pillowcase world – and the anime world in general – is the Kantai Collection, further proof – in case anyone needed it – that you can slap a pair of big eyes and tits on any concept and it will sell. This pillowcase, however, is a bit older, having been releaased in 2012. I thought about picking it up at the time but passed on it. A while later, I began thinking that that was a mistake, and started looking through the usual secondary market sources to see if I could amend the error. Fortunately, the circle who produces this dakimakura cover occasionally restocks out-of-print pillowcases, and so I was able to purchase this cover.

Dakimakura Review – Momoka from Suteki na Imouto (NSFW)

Momoka dakimakura from Evening Call

It’s dakimakura cover show-and-tell time. This particular pillowcase comes from Evening Call and is part of their “Puredise” line, which I think is their series of dakimakura covers featuring original characters. The girl presented here is Momoka and she’s listed as coming from “Suteki na Imouto,” which means something like “Wonderful Little Sister.” The artist goes by the name Chikura; I don’t know if he (I’m assuming it’s a he) has a website, and his Pixiv site is sparsely-populated. I wasn’t at all familiar with the artist before seeing his work here, but it didn’t take too long for me to decide I liked the art on this pillowcase.

Dakimakura Review – Tiana from Maou to Odore! Code: Arcana (NSFW)

Tiana from Maou to Odore! Code: Arcana

The last time we looked at a dakimakura cover, we looked at a warrior girl with no name. This time, we’ll be looking at another fighter girl, one who apparently has no last name.
