I know....but it was still awesome,because it was from the series :B
I started a new thread for Japanese Accessories. Games, toys, figurines, etc. etc. can be posted there. Does not have to be manga/anime related either. I'll leave this thread for the WTF type of things. I moved some posts, left others because the responses would have been confusing

Strike Witches Sell (Actual) Underpants in Japan
Creator Humikane Shimada draws Yoshika, Mio, Sanya on boxer briefs
The Japanese character goods retailer Chara-Ani began accepting pre-orders for Strike Witches boxer briefs on Friday. The 2,100-yen (about US$25.00) briefs come in three styles — for the characters Yoshika Miyafuji, Mio Sakamoto, and Sanya V. Litvyak — and in the Japanese sizes large and medium. Each of the briefs features an illustration of the respective character by Strike Witches creator Humikane Shimada on the front, along with the insignia of the anime's 501st Joint Fighter Wing Strike Witches (written with "501th") on the rear.
A popular quote from the anime, "Pantsu ja nai kara hazukashiku nai mon" ("I'm not embarrassed since these aren't my underpants!"), refers to how the female characters' combat outfits are not actually underpants, despite how similar they look.
The pre-orders end on December 17, and each customer is limited to 10 pairs of each style and size. The briefs will ship in late February, although Chara-Ani will also sell them early at the DK Anime Complex Fes 2011 event on January 23.
Chara-Ani also sold Lucky Star and Space Battleship Yamato underpants last year. Kadokawa Shoten's Nyantype magazine offered a limited-edition Strike Witches Pantsu Ja Nai Kubi Makura (Strike Witches They're-Not-Underpants Neck Pillow) to its readers last year as well.

Quite an interesting selection.
I can never imagine any grown ups wearing those kind of rings on a regular basis....casual use? No. Possibly for some kind of cosplay maybe? Yeah I can see that. The designs are kinda cool though. A lot of detail too. They look 100% plastic lol. I wonder how much they cost? xD
As for the underpants...no comment.
This is not official merchandise at all. Open the spoiler and you'll know why.
Three strange ones for ya:
- Briefcase Go-Kart Track ~ Check out the guy in the suit; he looks so cool. xD Who the hell would need one? hahaha
- "Humping USB Dogs" - Seriously...they didn't have to add the "humping" part to the official title and they could've designed the dog figurine and stance much better; so that it could be more easily carried and "not get in the way of things...."
- Solar powered Bras ~
Are you serious? lol
Would you want your chick to wear something like that before bed () and type in a message to "comfort" you in advance!?
