There’s not one on Yahoo Auctions. (´･ω･`)
Someone sell me yours. (´；ω；`)

Mine’s gotten all crusty now. You want it?
6：名無し募集中。。。：2013/07/17(水) 08:01:51.82 ID:0
I’d prefer one that’s unused.
3：名無し募集中。。。：2013/07/17(水) 08:00:26.15 ID:0
They’ll probably go for like 100,000 yen [US$1,000].

In the previous thread there were stay-at-home Sayu wota saying they’d pay that for one.
11：名無し募集中。。。：2013/07/17(水) 08:04:35.01 ID:0
Man, really? And I was ready to pay 50,000 yen [US$500] for one…
14：名無し募集中。。。：2013/07/17(水) 08:06:00.76 ID:0
I guess I should’ve bought one extra.
22：名無し募集中。。。：2013/07/17(水) 08:12:06.89 ID:0
I wanted to have one with me in the passenger seat of my car. (´；ω；｀)
23：名無し募集中。。。：2013/07/17(水) 08:12:28.82 ID:0
It would’ve been better if she’d been wearing a bikini in the design.
24：名無し募集中。。。：2013/07/17(水) 08:13:26.89 ID:0
What Michishige wota using one look like.
27：名無し募集中。。。：2013/07/17(水) 08:15:16.91 ID:0
If you just have enough money and enthusiasm, you could probably make one yourself, right?
28：名無し募集中。。。：2013/07/17(水) 08:15:33.24 ID:0
I’d want to buy one, too, but there’s not one appearing on any auctions. We’ll talk when they start popping up.
40：名無し募集中。。。：2013/07/17(水) 08:22:04.95 ID:i
They’re build-to-order. People won’t even start getting them until September. That’s probably when you’ll begin seeing them. Even if someone was auctioning one now, they wouldn’t actually have the item at hand yet.
42：名無し募集中。。。：2013/07/17(水) 08:23:41.88 ID:0
Really? I thought people got them right there and then. Thanks for the info, I guess this thread is done then.
49：名無し募集中。。。：2013/07/17(水) 08:28:01.80 ID:0
If that was the case, just imagine the scary prospect of when everyone disperses at Tokyo station (?) and there’d be masses of people walking around with hug pillows.
32：名無し募集中。。。：2013/07/17(水) 08:18:15.11 ID:0
I’ll get my ten grand ready and wait.
36：名無し募集中。。。：2013/07/17(水) 08:20:08.32 ID:0
When I heard that it was originally her own idea, I just got the hunch that she actually wants to be held by a man — making this hug pillow into reality is her way of getting around that. Michishige really is a virgin.
43：名無し募集中。。。：2013/07/17(水) 08:24:18.43 ID:0
I bought one extra just for safekeeping, but maybe I’ll put it up on sale.
44：名無し募集中。。。：2013/07/17(水) 08:24:23.35 ID:0
I might be able to save up ten grand until September.
55：名無し募集中。。。：2013/07/17(水) 08:46:09.39 ID:0
A hug pillow = 3,000 yen
Pillowcase = 1,000 yen
5-pack of A4 size iron-printable paper = 1,500 yen, or 6,000 yen for 4 of them, 12,000 yen if you also want a print on the other side
If you have PC, a printer, a favorite picture, lots of enthusiasm and time, and 16,000 yen [US$160], it’s not impossible.
56：名無し募集中。。。：2013/07/17(水) 08:49:09.06 ID:0
It’d cost that much? In that case the price of 20,000 yen [US$200] for the official product is actually really fair.
62：名無し募集中。。。：2013/07/17(水) 09:04:24.10 ID:0
Since it’s built-to-order and all, I wish they’d at least offer it to the fan club members.
69：名無し募集中。。。：2013/07/17(水) 09:16:09.23 ID:0
Especially since there are people who are saying they’d pay 50,000 or 100,000 yen for it.
71：名無し募集中。。。：2013/07/17(水) 09:17:21.98 ID:0
I bought both the big one and the small one, but I’m not selling.
72：名無し募集中。。。：2013/07/17(水) 09:20:00.71 ID:0
Chayu’s popularity is amazing.
80：名無し募集中。。。：2013/07/17(水) 10:56:37.13 ID:0
The handshake event is over.
I told Sayu I bought a hug pillow and asked what I should do with it.
从*･ ｡.･）＜ Sleep together with it!
(￣^￣)ゞ Captain! We have permission to proceed with the attack!
81：名無し募集中。。。：2013/07/17(水) 10:58:46.16 ID:0
Me: “Sayu, you said that we should use the hug pillow as we see fit… but what exactly can I use it for?! (laughs)”
从*･ ｡.･)＜ It’s okay to use it at night or when you’re feeling lonely for (almost) anything!
83：名無し募集中。。。：2013/07/17(水) 11:08:34.32 ID:O
It’s impossible to buy a hug pillow if you don’t live alone.
98：名無し募集中。。。：2013/07/17(水) 11:52:45.34 ID:0
Sayu’s ordered a special changeable Rihoriho pillowcase for hers. (laughs)
107：名無し募集中。。。：2013/07/17(水) 12:13:06.47 ID:0
Everyone I know only got one of the 160cm ones. There seem to be very few people who bought any for reselling purposes. You probably won’t see them appearing much.
109：名無し募集中。。。：2013/07/17(水) 12:14:08.35 ID:0
I heard you could order a total of four of them (two of each).
110：名無し募集中。。。：2013/07/17(水) 12:15:48.58 ID:0
I wonder if anyone did though? (laughs)
111：名無し募集中。。。：2013/07/17(水) 12:17:31.83 ID:0
113：名無し募集中。。。：2013/07/17(水) 12:18:15.71 ID:0
I’ll be waiting at Yahoo Auctions.
115：名無し募集中。。。：2013/07/17(水) 12:19:07.74 ID:0
He circled just one of each at first. He must’ve hesitated. (laughs)
121：名無し募集中。。。：2013/07/17(水) 12:24:34.91 ID:0
Someone please put one up for sale.
I desperately need one.
129：名無し募集中。。。：2013/07/17(水) 12:34:09.09 ID:0
Don’t worry, someone surely will.
I reserved four, too, but I don’t know if I’ll sell any.
133：名無し募集中。。。：2013/07/17(水) 12:38:05.01 ID:0
I’m gonna save up lots of money, so someone just please put one up (a new, unused one)!
139：名無し募集中。。。：2013/07/17(水) 12:45:51.36 ID:0
So no one has theirs yet, right?
141：名無し募集中。。。：2013/07/17(水) 12:47:53.01 ID:0
Sayu has one.
143：名無し募集中。。。：2013/07/17(水) 12:49:14.71 ID:0
Sayu will inspect them by hugging them all one by one to make sure they feel right before they ship out.
157：名無し募集中。。。：2013/07/17(水) 13:33:04.64 ID:0
Ten grand for one hugged by Sayu would be cheap. (laughs)
174：名無し募集中。。。：2013/07/17(水) 13:52:24.46 ID:0
Why the hell does it take two months to get these out anyway? It shouldn’t take more than a week. And put them up in the auctions, dammit!
182：名無し募集中。。。：2013/07/17(水) 14:11:45.19 ID:0
Sayu’s hug pillow… (heavy breathing)
215：名無し募集中。。。：2013/07/17(水) 15:36:12.15 ID:0
I bought four of them, but I won’t put any up on Yahoo Auctions.
I’m going to enjoy my harem of four Sayus!
233：名無し募集中。。。：2013/07/17(水) 15:58:04.51 ID:0
Of the 300 people who attended the bus tour, maybe 50 people bought two of them, and probably half of those bought them both for themselves. So there’s gonna be maybe 25 of them appearing in auctions. This is going to be seriously rare.
239：名無し募集中。。。：2013/07/17(水) 16:10:53.05 ID:0
Probably even less than that.
296：名無し募集中。。。：2013/07/17(水) 21:41:49.00 ID:0
I want to hold Sayu already! （＾ω＾）
303：名無し募集中。。。：2013/07/17(水) 23:57:04.49 ID:0
My mental image:
308：名無し募集中。。。：2013/07/18(木) 00:07:27.59 ID:0
That’s so awful I laughed my ass off.
304：名無し募集中。。。：2013/07/17(水) 23:59:04.77 ID:0
There was someone on this board who could draw this well?
311：名無し募集中。。。：2013/07/18(木) 00:08:35.18 ID:0
Hey, I don’t have that much ass hair! Hmph!
312：名無し募集中。。。：2013/07/18(木) 00:08:42.18 ID:0
I want to know Sayu’s reaction to that drawing.
315：名無し募集中。。。：2013/07/18(木) 00:12:06.31 ID:0
She already knows. (laughs)
339：名無し募集中。。。：2013/07/18(木) 09:49:31.88 ID:0
I want to be wrapped up in Sayu’s warmth.
350：名無し募集中。。。：2013/07/18(木) 16:28:33.67 ID:0
I’m so looking forward to September… in more ways than one.
Henkka: I was literally laughing my ass off as I was carefully cleaning away the original Japanese text from that Sayu wota’s tissue box. One of my proudest moments as a translator yet.

Sayumi is truly a master like Tsunku said when he chose her in the 6ki auditions… She totally knows what the wotas want but she’s never going to come out and say it so she can preserve her cute idol image.
I’d prefer one that’s unused.
^ best non-insane reply.
Haha! That drawing is awesome.
its truly a smart move by Sayu, maybe she’s feeling the pressure with all the new young members, when she’s been around for so long. Smart more to hold on to fans, is have your face be teh one they wake up next too.
You think UFA would be desperate enough to open orders to the public if they knew how popular they could be.
Lol that is one awesome drawing. Chayu wota are hilarious haha!
if your willing to spend anything more than a grand… for a pillow…
seriously.. i ask you why.. just why…..
IGNORANCE to LACK of KNOWLEDGE is a CHOICE!
Wake up to the technological times people…. =_=
for 600$ you can have a real lifelike clone of sayumi in your house.
if you have no idea what im talking about try googling japanese silicone dolls
and yes you can have one custom made.
Take her out for a walk like melonpan did
hints how to clean it:
edit: sorry wrong link
I’m afraid that that mental image is 100% correct.
If M-shige would really want to do some business she should start to sell all kind of things that are at least some way related to her, you know like “a cauliflower touched by Sayumi♥” (“Now you can open up Sayumi’s tender flower” would be the marketing sentence) or a small knife that’s touched by Sayumi named “DangerSayu” or whatever she could come up with. Not to mention sellings of small worn cloth pieces, like a small piece from SayuDress from this and that picture, she and H!P would make so much money.
And one certain item that would cost some serious money would be “ManoPiano” :)
