We find it a little ironic that for a manga that features a lot of nosepicking and fart jokes, the merchandise line for Gintama is actually quite classy. For example, check out this fantastic new line of backpacks from SuperGroupies, with designs that are understated and contemporary, and won’t look out of place in the display window of an upscale sportswear brand.
The line will feature bags inspired by series lead Gintoki Sakata, Shinsengumi members Toshirou Hijikata and Sougo Okita, and Shinsuke Takasugi. Each bag will feature canvas exteriors, lined interiors with custom prints, and snap buckle closure. Retailing at JPY 10,800, they are available for pre-order from the SuperGroupies site from now til 13th August. Deliveries are slated for the end of October.
