Manga Painted Keyboards Bring Anime Idols To Your Fingertips

 

Etsu Japan has partnered with CARNELIAN Sensei and TONY Sensei to create these magnificent hand-painted keyboards. The artwork displays the manga masters' keen eye and vivid imagination to best advantage but you may wonder... why use a computer keyboard for a canvas?

The only answer I can think of is that your average anime otaku geek would do just about anything to get his hands on one of the cute cuties depicted... and for just 10,000 yen (about $105) each, they can!




Manga maniacs on this side of the pond should note that both anime artworks by CARNELIAN Sensei and TONY Sensei use Japanese QWERTY JP keyboards and Etsu Japan doesn't appear to ship internationally. If you happen to be visiting Japan, however, pick up one or both - they make much nicer souvenirs than another tacky t-shirt (via Akihabara News)
