Harry Potter Gets a Cute Anime Makeover!

Art Anime Shopping

... classic Snape and his boss Dumbledore...

... friendless (at least among the set of SD Harry Potter characters) Malfoy...

... order of the Phoenix members/occasional guest-stars Sirius and Remus (more spoilers?)...

... twins Fred and George, who share a file, and father-of-Harry James, who for some reason isn’t accompanied by wife Lily...

... and finally, just when you thought things couldn’t get any cuter, Buckbeak the Hippogriff and Hedwig the Owl.

Each of the files sells for ¥378. They’ll be available at anime specialty stores nationwide, such as Animate, and can also be ordered right now from online retailers Movic and Froovie.

In spring 2016, the line will be expanded to include pins, rubber straps and acrylic keychains, with prices between ¥300 and ¥700. Currently, the same 13 characters are scheduled to be represented, but if demand is strong enough, maybe we’ll see more members of the Harry Potter cast make their SD debut, such as Cho, Cedric, and what would no doubt be an adorably moe Voldemort.
