For a limited time only, fans of Love Live! Sunshine!! will have the chance to acquire a tasty treat in the shape of their favorite members of Aqours thanks to a collaboration campaign with Sega Taiyaki Ikebukuro. The campaign runs from July 23 – September 17, 2018, and during that time patrons can purchase taiyaki in the shape of Love Live! Sunshine!! characters with “tsum tsum” character designs, including:
First year students (Yohane, Hanamaru, and Ruby).
Second year students (Riko, Chika, and You).
Third year students (Kanan, Mari, and Dia).
Each three-taiyaki set retails for 1200 yen ($10.77 US), and because supplies are limited, patrons can purchase one set for each grade level per visit per day. The taiyaki also feature a rotating schedule of flavors, as follows:
- July 23 – August 05, 2018: Mandarin orange cream flavor
- August 06 – August 19, 2018: Chocolate flavor
- August 20 – September 02, 2018: Adzuki bean & butter flavor
- September 03 – September 17, 2018: Matcha (powdered green tea) cream flavor.
Sega Taiyaki Ikebukuro is located on the 1st floor of the Sega Ikeburuko GiGO building in Higashi-Ikebukuro, Toshima Ward, Tokyo, Japan.
