Akuryo Taisan!

Akuryo Taisan!

Have you ever felt the need to banish evil spirits? Or perhaps just sense a weird vibe coming from a pig-tailed girl that’s been lurking around your family’s Shinto Shrine? Well, today might just be your lucky day!

When I went about my mission of faithfully creating screen-accurate copies of Rei’s ofuda, I was intent on not only making sure that the text was nearly identical to what we saw in the Sailor Moon anime, but that the Japanese washi paper was also as realistic as possible in terms of thickness and quality. And that meant that we needed to order a custom lot through a specialty printer.1

As it turns out, I have a number of bookmarks left over after the Kickstarter reward fulfillment was done. Rather than just put them away in my closet to collect dust for the next few years, I thought I’d offer them up to the readers of this blog and any other fans who might be interested.

A little bit of background on the bookmarks themselves:

  • Height: 15 cm (5.9″)
  • Width: 5 cm (2″)
  • Paper: Japanese washi tera paper (white; 103kg)
  • Design: Direct copy of the officially-licensed 悪霊退散 (akuryo taisan) stickers released during the first season of the anime2
  • Bookmarks included: 2
  • Throwability: Questionable at best; not recommended unless you are a trained priestess
  • Bookmarking ability: Average

These are extras left over from a limited print run that I had done, so there probably won’t be any more in the future.

That being said, I’m not really interested in making money off of these. They were already created as a part of Kickstarter rewards that I was working on, and I’d really hate to see them just get locked away in my closet, so I’d be much happier if I could share them with other fans.

Sets Available: 4 (as of January 13, 2019)

The bookmarks are being sold in sets of two for $8.50 (USD; including shipping anywhere in the world). You can place your order by paying at the following link and entering your shipping address.

I’m not sure how much interest there is in something like this, but I will delete this post and disable the payment link as soon as they either sell out or one week has passed (January 20, 2019).
