    A new product for Rilakkuma to endorse=EPIC WIN! Now he needs to get his own blog,you'll have to help him right? I'll be the first to sign up. Rilakkuma: World Dominator! To bad it's only available in Japan though. I still want one though.
    Have a great weekend.

      I think it will be limited to 500 units so it's going to sell fast. Maybe a Rillakuma theme you can download for windows would be good.

        yeah a rillakuma theme would be great. I like the case, if it could be purchased separately I would order it straight away. However i think 79000 ¥ for a netbook is a little bit expensive even if its a limited edition, don't you think so?

        Limited editions are always going to be a little bit more expensive. The specs sound pretty ok, but under $500 would be a good price point

    That sounds like a winner for me. Anything for Rilakkuma
