Doujin Event News: Futaket 4 confirmed for this spring

According to the official site for futanari-themed doujin convention Futaket the date and location for the fourth iteration of the event have been confirmed: Futaket 4 will take place on May 4th, 2008, at the Tokyo Toritsu Sangyou Boueki Center Hamamatsu-cho building. This building is operated by the same management that instituted a reactionary anti-doujin policy last October, so it’s encouraging to see that an arrangement has been reached that will allow the event to go forward. The future of ABC (the event that sparked the furor last fall) is still in question, and given the lingering climate of unease surrounding erotic doujinshi I don’t think this announcement from Futaket can be taken for granted either, but it’s definitely positive news after a solid year of doujin bashing. We’ll be tracking further details on Futaket 4 as they emerge. (no more)

Goods News: Ikkitousen’s Sonsaku Hakufu dakimakura coming from Chara Hai

Via the Dakimakura Integrated Research Institute: recently established character goods shop Chara Hai put up a listing yesterday for a Sonsaku Hakufu hug pillow cover from Ikkitousen. The pillow is up for preorder through February 15th with release expected on March 15th, at a 9,450 yen preorder price point (case only). It weighs in at 150 x 50 cm, with original art on both sides;
not much is known about Chara Hai at this point so it’s hard to say whether international retailers will be able to stock this item, but given that the shop seems to otherwise stock items exclusively from Machi Chara it seems there may be an arrangement between the two that might allow for the use of similar distribution channels.
