A collaboration between Morning Musume and Kadokawa online shop to promote Momusu’s Alo Hello 2011 PB has been announced.
There will be three types of goods available (thanks to Amped for the details):
- Original member T-shirts (3,800 yen)
– Come in the following colors: black, pink, white, blue and yellow
- An Alo Hello Towel (2,800 yen)
- An Ai-chan Graduation special designed watch in collaboration with the brand “red monkey” (39,800 yen)
Apart from being able to buy the shirts and towels without a signature fans will be able to enter a raffle after their purchase from where 9 lucky fans will be able to win a signed shirt or towel with a message from their favorite member.
From what I can tell this is a really good way to promote the release of their Alo Hello PB since anyone who can order from the site will be able to get a chance to own a shirt or a towel signed by their favorite member apart from being able to buy a shirt for the Alo Hello tour at a really great price (2,800 or 3,800 Yen or 36 to 49 US dollars), and while I’m not sure if they ship to other places apart from the US (probably not) I encourage anyone who plans on buying a few shirts or towels and entering the raffle to do so since they might win a shirt autographed by their favorite member.
The most expensive item is the Ai-chan watch which will cost around 39,800 Yen (or $518 US dollars) and while it might be a bit too expensive for most of us it’s still a great addition since Ai-chan fans can get a watch to commemorate her last Alo-Hello tour as a Momousu member. Pictures for the watch aren’t available but we should be able to see one in the next few weeks or months once they are shipped.
The promotion is limited so I hope everyone who plans on buying their goods and entering the raffle will do so soon, and while the goods might be limited to shirts, towels, and a watch this seems like an amazing way to promote the Alo Hello PB.
The promotion will run from 9/1 ~ 10/31.
