Rockman EXE "Good Night" Bath Towels Are a Thing


What better way to celebrate Rockman EXE's 15th anniversary than creepy bath towels?




A set of four towels featuring various EXE character in, uh, their pajamas are coming to E-Capcom later in February. EXE series veterans Miho Asada and Higurashi illustrated these. Pre-orders are available now for 8,148 yen a piece (about $70). Pajama phone stands are available, too.

  1. 70 bucks? For a towel? Pajama-Roll or not that's beyond silly.

    1. You forgot.. they just want your money. they do not care about your struggling money or anything. They wants the profit and the riches for themselves. Don't buy it if it is expensive because I am not buying it. Be wise. :)

    2. But you will a Pajama-Roll eventually ;)

  2. Good for kids who are fans of Battle Network, but that's about it.

  4. I was just playing through a marathon of MMBN titles and tried to 100% them, it really taught me how rich and deep and well designed the concepts of that series developed. In fact the only and absolute worst part of it that only got worse as I grew was the story, everything aesthetic and gameplay related were top notch to me as a take on the IMO irritating and boring generic most of the time turn-based JRPG formula.

    Such wasted potential of such a great series.

  6. Ooh Roll.EXE's got Control Bot slippers, I kind of want those now.
    I think this concept would be better as a big throw blanket/futa with all of them on it, with more of their friends too, so it'd be more warm than anything else.
    Gutsman.EXE's art would depict him shocked from ripping his pajamas just by wearing them.

  7. I'm not really sure how "creepy" these are, but they certainly are cute!

    I mean, not $70.00-worth of cute, but still!

  8. Awkward... But I can't help but wonder how many people would buy a towel from other EXE characters like Mariko, Yuriko, Princess Pride, ...

  10. Wow, Capcom, *reeeeally* make sure to shorten the size of that one-digit-old character's pijama pants.

  11. I don't understand, how else would you celebrate it? A remastered edition or a soundtrack tribute album? That's just silly and we all know it.

  12. I just have to say that Saito over there looks... very snappy in that pajama. Almost like he was wearing a suit.
    Also I want Mr.Prog slippers now.

  13. Why is Roll.EXE's yellow ummmmmmmm............. you know what I'm talking about, all droopy? Does she control that stuff with her emotions or something?

    1. I'd imagine it'd be so they could still fit in the picture, but I would've liked seeing details like that in the anime tbh.

  14. Why are the Japanese such perverts for child characters? -_-

    1. I agree with the question, but this is not that bad of a case of that.

      This is not really perverted at all unless you think they look especially sexy drawn or something. Pre teens generally wear that kind of stuff as PJs to go to bed. Even if the parent is more conservative parents could just buy you know pants and stuff.

    2. I don't think they look sexy at all, but I'm sure there are grown adult weirdos over there who find Maylu and Roll attractive. And let's not forget Maylu's been in a swimsuit in the anime as well as getting swimsuit art in Xover along with Tron.

    3. I think it's bad enough. Lets put it this way, Anon2. I'd put money on it that if I showed either the MM or Mail towels to an adult, they'd look at me funny.

      And not in a good way.

      With MM it's the pose. With Mail it's pose+pajamas.

      Naoto is, I think, the safest there.

      If a kid has these, rather a different story but... who's thinking of targeting kids with a USD80 polyester towel?

      All in all, /shudder/. I'll be passing. :/

    4. yeah, clearly, they're not selling it for kids.
      and not for any adult. with theses motive and price, they really are going after THAT public (which is a public usually willing to spent a lot on the merchandising they buy).

      Delete
  15. I think it's theses kind of merch that target a very very precise niche audience. like a niche, in a niche, in a niche.
    Like people who buy video game merch, more precisely megaman merch, and specifically thoses who also happen to be the people who buy bath towel of their character making "kawaii" poses in pajamas.
    note that i'm not saying it as a criticize, just making a constat. theses kind of products are made sometimes, it happen for a lot of franchise, and there's a public for this.
    And considering that, the price does'nt surprise me that much (i don't say it's not a expensive price but this is usualy the kind of audience who is willing to spent a lot in their collectibles)
