Via the Dakimakura Integrated Research Institute and my own random surfing: several dakimakura items of interest came to light over the weekend, the first of which is a pillowcase from goods maker Axia featuring Maaryan-sempai from To Heart 2 XRATED. The case sports two original illustrations from artist Urotan and clocks in at 160 x 50 cm, scheduled to retail in late December at 10,500 yen (telephone card included). Next, word is in from Chara@ that they have two eroge-based pillowcases in the works: one featuring the tragically recalled Atu Works game Oaruji no Tame ni Kane wa Naru and original artwork by Amakawa Akito (sample here); the other from Black Rainbow’s [ERO] Saiminjutsu 2 featuring Sakurai Sawa and original art from Yoshino Keiko. Both cases are double-sided and will retail in late December at 150 x 50 cm and 12,000 yen. Finally, Toranoana has listings up for a pair of mechamusume-themed pillowcases from the pages of MC Akushizu vol. 4‘s “do you like aircraft carrier sisters?” series: the Makishima Azusa illustrated Kuubo Ootori and the Usami Haruka illustrated Kuubo Akagi. Both are 150 x 55 cm, double sided and scheduled for release at 7,140 yen in January; Tora preorders close on 11/16 for Akagi and 11/23 for Ootori. Pictures below:

There aren’t any sample images online for the Sakurai Sawa pillow yet, alas, though they should be appearing soon here. I’m guessing most of these will make at least a token appearance at Comiket 73…
