Gintama has collaborated with fashion brands before, like when the gender-bended versions of the male characters (oh, and Kagura) helped inspire some of the earth music&ecology store’s newest clothes, but now they’re entering a new zone: friendship bracelets. OK, so maybe they’re not friendship bracelets, but they’re super cool charm bracelet/watch hybrids.

Japanese online retailer SuperGroupies has begun pre-orders for official Gintama charm bracelet watches and charm sets. These nifty watch bracelets come in two different designs, with two sets of extra charm sets.

The Gintoki Sakata model comes with charms of Gintoki’s favorite parfait and his wooden sword. The charm of his scooter doesn’t come with this bracelet, but is a part of the Yorozuya charm set.

The Toshiro Hijikata model of the charm watch comes with a lighter with a symbol of a mayonnaise bottle on it, as well as a mayonnaise bottle.

The Yorozuya charm set comes with three charms representing Gintoki, Kagura, and Shinpachi. Gintoki’s is his scooter he always uses to get around and a carton of strawberry milk, Kagura’s is her umbrella and hairbun cover, and Shinpachi’s is his glasses and his “happi” coat reading “Otsu” on it that he wears when cheering on his favorite idol.

The Shinsengumi charm set comes with three charms that are supposed to represent Hijikata, Okita, and Kondo. The Hijikata charm has a bottle of mayonnaise and the rice with said mayonnaise poured all over it, the Kondo charm has the Shinsengumi uniform jacket and a banana to represent him being treated as a gorilla by all the other characters, and the Okita charm has his sleeping mask and the bazooka he sometimes uses to wipe Hijikata off the face of the Earth.

All charm bracelets will cost 11,800 yen (about USD $103) each, while each charm sets will run for 6,800 yen (about USD $60), tax excluded. Pre-orders will be held until July 30, and orders are scheduled to ship out in late October.
