SuperGroupies announced on Monday that the new Nadia items will include a wristwatch, a bag, and a wallet. Nadia will celebrate its 30th anniversary with a special exhibition this year, so this is a good time for merchandise based on the anime.
The waterproof watch has an imitation of Nadia’s mysterious Blue Water gemstone at the 12 o’clock position, with The Secret of Blue Water written below that. The watch face looks like a nautical chart, but the map only appears when the light is right. The backside of the watch says Nadia: The Secret of Blue Water in Japanese.
The wristband is brown leather. The underside of the wristband is a red bicolor which resembles Nadia’s typical clothing. The watch is made by Maruzeki, a Japanese watchmaker. It will cost 19800 yen, plus tax. That’s $190.79 in U.S. dollars, or 157.07 Euros.
The shoulder tote bag features an embossing of a nautical chart on its two more narrow sides. It comes with a charm which resembles the Blue Water gem. The charm can be removed and worn like a necklace.
The bag also includes braided straps inspired by Nadia’s outfit. These can also be removed from the bag. The bag is spacious, and can hold a 13-inch laptop computer. It includes a zipper pocket and an open pocket.
The interior of the bag is made of a SuperGroupies original textile and has a ‘Blue Water’ pattern. The bag costs 14800 yen, plus tax.
The wallet is a bifold design, with a nautical chart design similar to the bag. The wallet also comes with a Blue Water charm, which can be worn as a necklace. It has a zipper that looks like Nadia’s red and white hair ornaments. The wallet’s textile matches the interior of the shoulder bag. The wallet is 10800 yen, plus tax.
Like previous SuperGroupies stuff we’ve covered, these are stealthy items, designed to not advertise your otaku nerdiness too obviously. And yet, they include clever little touches which show that they are designed with fans in mind.
These items can be pre-ordered from now until 15 February (or until they sell out). The estimated delivery is around the beginning of June for the wallet and bag, and July for the watch.
