Theres a Hatoful Boyfriend Shop and Its Hilarious
Remember that really weird pigeon game from a few years back. The one where you dated different types of birds and they all had really cliche anime storylines. Well if you don’t we are about to refresh your memory because we just stumbled upon a shop dedicated to producing American merchandise for this game in the most japanese ways possible. The products on the page are hilarious and Limited Run games helps put them out. So, get ready for a good laugh because this site has about everything a fan of this game could possibly wish for….or not in one items case.
How is This a Thing?
The Hatoful shop was actually funded through Kickstarted at the height of the game’s popularity. They even ran a second Kickstarter to expand the line of merchandise. The first Kickstarted did fantastic hitting all of its stretch goals, but the second one was a little less popular. After the kickstarter the items were sent to backers and the store was created for you to purchase all your bird related needs!
Shuu Poncho I’m almost %100 sure this is the guy in the game that brutally murders you in his story arc. That being said apparently a lot of people are into that because he is one of only two characters on the site with a poncho made to his likeness. Yes, there are bird themed ponchos of your favorite characters that you can buy and wear out in public now. This is also a great way to make your friends question your taste in men with one quick Google search. It even has a hood to keep you dry in case you do decide to wear it out in the normal work and it starts to rain..neat!
Ok, I can’t hate this too much it’s a pretty cute little set of figures. Not really sure why we have a crossing dressing Ryouto figure, but hey it looks good. In the game this guy was the cliche best friend to the main character. These cute figures aren’t quite up for sale yet, but the site does ist them as coming soon. Hopefully, we can get a Shuu figure next seems he seems to be so loved by the fans. It will go great beside my Pop Vinyl of Freddy Kruger for sure!
Just in case your favorite character is feeling a bit left out we have a set of phone straps that you can proudly take with you wherever you go. You can even have a strap with Oka-san eating pudding on it for your collection. The whole set will run you over $50, but let’s be honest that just means you can brag more about how much you support the series. Of course, if you’re true to only one bird all of these straps are sold separately so you don’t have to feel bad about owning more than one.
If you need another reason to buy from the Hatoful shop then we’re here to give it to you. Fall and winter are fast approaching meaning it’s time to pull out some warmer clothes. This hat is based off of the delusional bird Anghei who thinks he’s a fallen angel. Show your support for the dark arts by wearing this hat and proclaiming to the world that you like guys who are possibly stuck in their own delusions The good news about this hat is most people you cross paths with will probaly just think you are an avid fan of birds..
Now comes time for the weirdest item/ items set on the site. We introduce to you the sleepy bundle complete with everything you need to get a great nights sleep. In this bundle you will get a case featuring maid Ryouta in his human on one side and on the other mid Ryouta in his pigeon form. This is the ultimate way to show affection to your digital lover in the real world. Hug pillows are even easily portable so you can take him with you to your next con and meet up with other pigeon lovers!
If that’s not enough just check out these socks. Go to sleep with the warmth of Shuu on your feet or if you prefer Kazuzaki can keep you warm instead. These socks will be perfect for the cold nights of fall. All of these items are of course sold separately so you can mix and match to make your own ultimate bundle!
Of course, if these aren’t enough for you there are a few other items you can buy in the shop. This include a few shirts with different birds on each one and several plushies. You can pretty much get a 6 inch plush of any character you want or even purchase a set of some of the most popular birds for $30. Be warned though there is a 12 inch plush, but it will run you around $70 and the minimum shipping fee is around $12. Basically, stuff in this shops adds up super fast. Be sure your wallet is ready before making a purchase from this shop. Who would have though designer bird toys could be so expensive?
