Girls und Panzer gets the best hug pillow ever

Ah, the dakimakura. Few things in otaku culture are more indicative of one's...*ahem* "power level" than being in possession of a large hug pillow emblazoned with the visage of your 2D spouse.

That is, unless you're a fan of old World War II tank, in which case no mere wife or husband will do. This is where Girls und Panzer comes in, as a bunch of sick/brilliant minds at Circle Gewalt are selling this lovely Girls und Panzer-themed dakimakura, which is shaped, sized and detailed as if a 7.5cm-K.Gr.rot.Pz anti-tank round, used in the KwK 37 cannon that served as the main gun on a Panzer IV, the "hero tank" of the show.

From the looks of it it's a pretty faithful replica, down to accurate printing on the "shell casing". It'll be a perfect gift for your military history-buff friend, or a high-level Girls und Panzer fan. And unlike some of the cooler merch I've seen, it's not a bad price either, just ¥3,000 (about $31). Unfortunately, you need to have been at Saturday's "Sailor Uniforms and Tank-driving" fan event to actually buy it. I'm sure that by now anyone willing to sell it will have jacked up the price like it were a real tank round!
