Ultra-hip Strike Witches jackets sell out in 13 minutes


50 people are now the coolest kids in their respective schools, guaranteed. After just 13 minutes, all 50 of K-Supply's customizable Strike Witches jackets were sold out. Costing 30,400 yen (after shipping), the jacket could be customized with any name you wished, and any rank from Airman to First Lieutenant -- Major and General were reserved for show staffers.

And, as a side note: all the patches were made by the same company that makes the patches for the US military. Y'know, for the sake of all those hardcore military nuts/moe fans over in Japan. I have a feeling those two groups have an unusually large crossover.

Now, what about all you Strike Witches fans? Would you shell out your serious bucks -- around $300 -- for this piece of rare and hand-crafted material? You'd still be supporting FUNimation's war on pants, because this wouldn't cover any of your backside. I've yet to partake in the show, but FUNi just sent me a review copy, so expect to hear from us about it soon!

[Thanks, Ko!]
