If you’d like to hold a piece of a mystery in the palm of your hand, then soon you will have the option to do so, because the Natalie Store website is offering palm-sized plush toys of the cynical taxi-driver Odokawa and the rapping gangster Yano from the ODDTAXI TV anime.
The toys retail for 2200 yen (about $16.21 US) including tax and are available for pre-order until July 21, 2022, with the final product scheduled to begin shipping in Japan in October.
ODDTAXI is directed by Baku Kinoshita and features animation production by OLM and P.I.C.S..
This town should look familiar, but suddenly, it’s not. The taxi driver Odokawa lives a very mundane life. He has no family, doesn’t really hang out with others, and he’s an oddball who is narrow-minded and doesn’t talk much. The only people he can call his friends are his doctor, Gouriki and his classmate from high school, Kakibana. All of his patrons seem to be slightly odd themselves. The college student who wants to be noticed online, Kabasawa. A nurse with secrets, Shirakawa. A comedy duo, the Homosapiens… All these mundane conversations somehow lead to a girl who’s gone missing.
