"Excuse me, but, what's a dakimakura?"
You may not know what a dakimakura is but here is a sample of what it looks like:
You see, that's how a dakimakura looked like, if I hoped that Comic Alley, the number one anime merchandise store in the Philippines, sells one of these cutesy pillow covers for your tall pillows.
A dakimakura is a kind of a tall pillow cover with a picture of an female anime character on it. (Like I shown it to you)
I know it sounds too weird to be true, but in the eyes of an otaku, its his or her (if any) prized possession in their bedroom.
To all otakus living in the Philippines, feel free to ask any of the anime stores all over your favorite malls (SM, Festival, Town Center, Greenbelt, or any mall you know) and tell them if the dakimakuras are on sale.
Take your time, guys!
