Animate's U.S. shop to offer up Snow Miku goods

Just think, now you don't have to go to Japan to get them!

So you might remember reading that this year's Snow Miku has a metric ton of merchandise. If you've been wanting any of it besides the Nendoroid or plush, some good news: the U.S. Animate online shop will have all the items on sale at Animate's Japan stores, starting March 9. They've set up a special page for the sales, too, showing off what will be coming stateside. You'll also be able to pick these items up at the Kinokuniya booth this year at Sakura-Con in Seattle (March 29-31).

So what's coming? It's 13 items in total, including: a tote bag, keychain, fole folders, stickers and postcard sets. So, mostly small and probably inexpensive stuff, but hey, it might be a bit less of a hassle than buying it from Japan. And at least it's not that Hachune Miku nikkuman, right?
