Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)
The trip to work and back seems to be getting colder each and every day now. I’ve already started to come to work wrapped up in a warm scarf! Today I’m going to be taking a look at a product which suits the cold weather perfectly!
‘Shirukuma & wooser’s Chummy Shiruko Set’
wooser is collaborating with Belle Maison’s popular ‘Shirukuma Cafe’ to create a special wooser edition of the tasty treat! The one set includes ‘Hokkaido Aduki Beans and Chestnut Shiruko’ and ‘Sendai Specialty Soybean Shiruko’ and the other set includes ‘Kyoumaccha Shiruko’ and ‘Kagoshima Potato and Chestnut Shiruko’ – all carefully made and freeze-dried by the famous Kanagawa brand, Kagadane.
A special Shirukuma original rubber strap is also included that isn’t available anywhere else! Be sure to keep warm this Winter with some delicious oshiru!

It’s so cute!! (*´▽`*)
The rounded form is perfect for wooser!! I wish I could just eat him up!!

*The figures on the sides are not included!
( ゚д゚) Ah! Now that I think about it, I can eat him up!!
Inside of the wooser or Shirukuma shapes you will find freeze-dried oshiruko, a kind of soup! The wooser shape is still in development, but I think it looks lovely already! Let’s give one a try and see how it works!
“Shirukuma Cafe: Kyoumaccha Shiruko”

Shirukuma is also adorable!!
The form is so simple… yet gives off such an adorable aura! (*´Д`)
Let’s take a look at the instructions…
It looks relatively simple… let’s give it a go! ★
1: Create an opening in the center and place in a cup.
I can’t help but feel a little bad as I cut through the poor creature…
2: Pour in 80ml of boiling water.
As soon as the water touches the freeze-dried goodness inside, you’ll start to smell the lovely scent of the shiruko! Try to pour the water directly onto the powder and not the outer shell!
3: Mix with a spoon, and enjoy!

Mix, mix, swirl, mix…!
Done! That really was super easy! ♡(σ・∀・)σ

Right… time for the tasting… nomnomnom…
It’s delicious..!!! ε=(。´∀`。)
It’s got a lovely flavour and really does make you feel all warm inside… the outer shell is also surprisingly filling, perfect for Winter snack time! ♪
Plus they’re not just delicious, but also come with original rubber straps!

Shirukuma goods are pretty rare… so this is quite a unique item for fans!

Once again that simple cuteness looks amazing! (・∀・)!!
Definitely something to help keep you warm this Winter! ♥

This is actually the second food-related wooser product to be released, following on from wooser’s Preserved Food to Take to a Deserted Island!
But if you look through the wooser goods on the GSC website you’ll see there have been all sorts!

Of all of the products so far, by best has to be the wooser Talking Ballpoint Pen A, which is not only a great pen, but also lets you listen to wooser’s famous lines!

I can hear wooser-sama’s lovely voice whenever I like! ♪
I have the wooser Talking Ballpoint Pen A, but there is also a B version which features alternate lines! You can see exactly what lines are included on the official product pages:
wooser Talking Ballpoint Pen A
“My name is wooser. I have no interest in things like love and justice!”
“Well then, I guess it’s time to complain. …I’m so hopeless.”
“Okay, let’s just settle this with money, shall we?”
wooser Talking Ballpoint Pen B
“My name is wooser. My present to you, is myself.”
“Even if you defeat me, wooser #2 and #3 will appear before you and block your way!”
“You take care of this, I’ll move on without you!”
Trust wooser to bring you good luck for any exam prep or work! (`・ω・´)

Don’t forget that the second season of wooser is scheduled to start soon!

The other day I was able to visit the wooser dubbing studios, where I got a comment from wooser’s voice actor, Mamoru Miyano!
In the first season, wooser made a very striking debut and everyone was rather… shocked by what they saw. Yet everyone continued to support him, cheer for him and ask for more. And so, somehow we’ve managed to bring a second season – something that I’m personally very happy to see become a reality!

wooser’s anime series has an incredibly open and free feeling to it, and through that and what was learned from the first season, I’m confident the second season will being fans more of what they are hoping for, and more of what they are sure to enjoy. I hope everyone will enjoy the second season as much as I enjoyed voicing it. I was also the artist for the opening song this time around, so I hope everyone will enjoy that too!

Thank you for the comment!!
I was lucky enough to get the comment when I visited the dubbing studios for the second season… and hearing his words made me look even more forward to the upcoming awakening arc! ♡
