Detective Conan’s Shuichi Akai Design Humidifier Paper Helps Keep the Air Moist

16.April.2021 | ANIME&GAME / FASHION

The new Detective Conan: The Scarlet Bullet anime film will be released on April 16, 2021. In promotion of its release, Japanese fashion magazine CanCam is coupling its June issue, which releases on April 23, with a humidifying paper featuring the series character Shuichi Akai.

CanCam readers happen to be huge fans of Shuichi Akai, who is an FBI agent in the series. Using the paper humidifier is simple: all you need to do is put water into a cup and submerge it which will help keep the air in a room moist. And since it’s just paper and water, no electricity needs to be used, making it an eco-friendly product.

 

There are two designs, one of Shuichi Akai on his own and another with his family. The Shuichi design has hearts on it while the Akai family has flowers which makes it a great decoration around the house too.

 

 

Conan-lover and Japanese comedian Chika Tanabe to be featured

Japanese comedian Chika Tanabe, who is a member of the Japanese comedy trio BOLJUKU, will feature in the June issue of CanCam where she will talk about her love of the Detective Conan series. For her feature, she has dressed in Akai’s trademark hat and jacket and has curly hair to create a feminine Akai look. 

Her obsession with the series came about when a friend invited her to the movie theatre to see the anime film Detective Conan: Zero the Enforcer back in 2018. She said the experience made her life brighter. After watching the series’ previous film Detective Conan: The Fist of Blue Sapphire in 2019, she was inspired to visit Singapore where the film is set despite only earning a several thousand yen during her job as a performer at the time. She upped her shifts at her part-time job to earn more money, saying, “I worked hard for Conan on my poor savings!”

 

Speaking about her favourite character, Tanabe said: “I call myself a girl child. I really love Amuro [Toru], but when someone asks who’s my favourite, that’s the hardest question. Watching the latest film, I found myself saying that Akai is super cool too.”

    ‘Tabemas’ is an abbreviation of the Japanese words taberareru masukotto, meaning ‘mascots that you can eat.’ It is a Japanese confectionery series that combines well-known characters and Japanese sweets made from ingredients like red bean paste, sugar and rice flour. The sweets are also made with a dough called “nerikiri” which is used in making traditional Japanese wagashi sweets.

     

    The sweets feature titular character Conan Edogawa and FBI agent Shuichi Akai from the new film, recreating their looks in adorable detail and making the custard and chocolate flavoured respectively. The colours of the confections are naturally-derived from the ingredients used, meaning no artificial colourings are used.
