I always like special edition merchandises that were released on any certain event. That makes the item has a special value because we have to attend the event in order to get it. Although nowadays these can be obtained on auctions, attending the event and buying the merchandise still gives you a great feeling. And so this is why I bought this Gochiusa (ご注文はうさぎですか？) T-shirt featuring Magical Girl Chino (魔法少女チノ) from Comiket.
It has a front and back print, produced by Anime University COOP. The back print is basically a zoomed-in version of Chino’s face from the front design. The colours are really great and bright. But the most interesting part is the shirt cutting. Instead of the regular cutting, this shirt is basically a combination of two T-shaped fabric. It can be clearly seen because of the absence of the arm seam.
The design is directly printed to a polyester fabric. However, the quality of the polyester fabric is a little different to the ones that I used to order. The pores here are smaller and so the fabric is softer and has a nicer feel when worn.
Like other polyester shirts, the design is directly printed on the fabric so there is no need to be concerned about cracking. I have washed this several times too and the colours seem to be holding pretty good. Look at her blue eyes on the top. It still looks almost perfect that it does not look like that it has already been washed several times. This is a really great T-shirt to have and I really hope there will be more like this in the future.
