Bakuon! -- squick

I've done my share of ogling of Rin in Bakuon, as you all know, but there are lines. J-list is selling an adult toy now with Rin's picture on the box. (NSFW!!!)

Which merits a huge squick from me. It doesn't help that they made a huge Japanese ecchi pun with the name. Gross.

1 Not even a life model, just her picture on the box of a generic toy? Man, that's lame, even setting aside the nature of the toy.

No one ever accused TamaToys of class. They created their own version of Super Sonico that looks just the same except the headphones are different, and use it on several of their adult toys. (I suspect they tried to license Sonico and the game company refused them.)

The only saving grace about this one is that they probably are honestly licensing Rin from the mangaka, so he gets some money for it. Which leaves all the other reasons I wouldn't want to buy it...

3 The uniform and especially the hair ornaments are probably sufficiently different that they aren't licensing it.

4 I guess you're right: the JList guy says it's Rin, not TamaToys. All the worse.

6 As it says, it's obviously based on Rin, just like the Super Sonico one. TamaToys has a tendency to do that with popular trends (K-ON!, Kantai Collection, etc). J-list sometimes plays along by putting R-rated fanart of the original, like they did here. TamaToys even did a fetish parody of Studio Ghibli's Mimi wo Sumaseba (NSFW).
