This visual novel and fall 2017 anime is already preparing spooky goods for this year.
Dies irae is a visual novel with very dark themes, but the limited-time Dies irae shop at Ikebukuro prepared something a bit more cheery for the Halloween season. Halloween may be over, but we thought you’d like to take a look at what the store had to offer:
The front of the shop is decorated with a glass case showing off the goods in the shop, including a hugging pillow cover featuring an illustration of Beatrice in werewolf attire, perfect for Halloween. The case also has the illustration drawn in celebration of the success of the crowdfunding campaign that was held to fund the upcoming anime adaptation.
The case also showed off some of the goods sold in the shop, including aluminum badges, smartphone cases, mugs, pens, card cases, and more.
The Dies irae girls were also transformed into headphone jack stoppers for the event.
Fans could purchase plastic folders featuring art made specifically for the event.
Fans that haven’t read the novels based on the visual novel could also pick up their copy at the store.
The art made for the store was also available in tapestry form.
Light up the night with Dies irae crystal art. This piece of art retailed for 19,800 yen (about USD $191).
Feel a little lonely when taking a sip of your favorite drink? This glass had a portrait of Dies irae character Mercurius looking up at you.
The store was stocked with tapestries and music from voice actress and singer Yui Sakakibara, who also plays Marie in the game.
Signed prints with art from the franchise were also available for purchase:
The store also featured illustrations and concept art from the upcoming anime, but unfortunately, those pieces were off-limits for photographs, so we’ll have to wait a little longer to see them.
The Dies irae shop was at Ikebukuro P’Parco’s Limited Base venue from October 14 to November 2. If you couldn’t swing by, you can take a look at the full list of goods on the store’s website. If you can’t wait for the Dies irae anime, you might be happy to know that it is scheduled to begin broadcasting next fall.
