Studio Ghibli is apparently releasing a Kaonashi coin bank! And if the name “Kaonashi” is unfamiliar to you, perhaps you’ll know him by it’s name in the anime as “No Face” - from the 2001 animated feature film “Spirited Away”!
"…the automated product springs into action once coins are placed onto the red bowl it holds in its outstretched hands. Once the coins reach a default weight of about 30 grams (1 ounce), No Face lets out his signature “Ah…ah…” phrase, and music from the movie begins to play as the dish of coins moves towards its mouth. No Face’s teeth are revealed, the coins are consumed and the spirit lets out a glorious burp at the end of its rich meal." - reported en.rocketnews24.com.
It is also reported that it will be released on May 20th, 2017 at Donguri Kyowakoku shops (the official retailer for Studio Ghibli goods) and online pre-orders now - with a SRP of 5,184 yen (approx. US$45 / SG$64).
