Anyone who’s watched a Studio Ghibli film will recognize No Face, the lonely black spirit that spits out gold for attention. Now, fans can feed him their loose change with this new piggy bank from Studio Ghibli.
RocketNews24 reports that the automated money box speaks and plays music from “Spirited Away”. It even burps every time you make a deposit. It is officially called “Spirited Away No Face Munching Piggy Bank”. It automatically springs into action when coins are placed on the red bowl and pops them into its mouth.
The product is being developed by Benelic, the company who created the various official Studio Ghibli merchandise, being sold at Donguri Kyowakoku store chains.
This No Face piggy bank is set to retail for 5,184 yen (roughly P2,300) and will go on sale at Donguri Kyowakoku stores in Japan starting May 20. Online pre-orders are now available at their website.
For international fans, Cafe de Donguri is offering international postage for No Face and other Studio Ghibli merchandise. You can make the purchase over at their English language page in the Rakuten Global Market site. Be advised, however, that ordering from the site is limited to until May 18. Alfred Bayle/JB
