Yui Ogura edition AK70 features adorable art and new music
You may know her as Kokona in Encouragement of Climb, Charlotte Isoir in The Ryuo’s Work Is Never Done!, or the hard-working idol Sosogu in Hoshiiro Girl Drop (Pop Team Epic). Regardless, you’ve almost certainly heard Yui Ogura around in your favorite anime. For her next trick, she’s collaborating with Astell & Kern to release a new digital music player.
The pink “AK70 MKII Yui Ogura Edition” features art and design by Ogura’s sister, illustrator sakittyart. The art is also featured on the player’s case and box. Already installed upon delivery are a special thank-you message from Ogura, as well as her latest single, “Shiroku Saku Hana.”
Ogura has recorded a message about the player in advance for her fans, talking about its design and about working with her older sister:
Only 500 of the Yui Ogura Edition players will be sold.
