Let’s start this month off with the bit of good news before we get into all the cuddly stuff. If you’ve visited our site in the past week, you’ll have noticed that all our glorious anime boobies have returned to the storefront. This is because we have recently acquired a merchant account with a new payment processor that has cleared our store for use on their platform! Unfortunately, this new payment processor, at the present time, can only accept payments in EUR. As such, all purchases from the United States and Japan will still be processed with Stripe, while payments from any country outside those two will be processed in EUR with Mollie. This is, however, subject to change at any time.
Onto the updates that you can cuddle with, this month we are updating our website with the following 10 designs:
- Futuba Anzu ([email protected]) by KyuriTizu
- Zooey (Granblue Fantasy) by KyuriTizu
- Astolfo (Fate Series) by Shuffle
- Utaha Kasumigaoka (Saenai Heroine no Sodatekata) by Brora
- Narumeia (Granblue Fantasy) by Brora
- Reika (Original) by Muryotaro
- Sakurai Momoka ([email protected]) by Mafuyu
- Kiyohime (Fate Series) by Nanairo Fuusen
- Ro-500 (Kantai Collection) by Nyatrix
- Ayase Eli (Love Live!) by Cleanline
Disclaimer: The lines and octopodes on the sample images are a watermark and won’t be on the printed cover.
You can purchase these and all of our past designs from our storefront here!
Additionally, the premium P80 2-Way Roika versions of most of our new character designs from this month, including our old Papi design, will be available for pre-order on Sakura-Palace. The All Ages versions of Anzu, Zooey, Astolfo, and Momoka will also be available on Sakura-Palace, in addition to their R-18 counterparts.
