How do you honour the memory of a popular TV series that millions grew up with?
Rather subtly, because fandom can be a rabid beast trying hard to protect the memories of a favoured friend. While Japanese manga/anime series Naruto might have closed it books back in November 2014, fellow Japanese company is helping some fans relive the experience, with a Limited Edition Naruto vs. Sasuke Final Battle Memorial series of high resolution Walkman and headphones.
The Limited Edition Naruto vs. Sasuke Final Battle Memorial NW-A25 Walkman (16GB) music player comes preloaded with an original wallpaper that depicts Naruto in a final battle with Sasuke. The rear panel of the device features the scarred symbol of The Village Hidden in the Leaves.
But what’s a music player without the right tunes? The Walkman comes pre-loaded with high resolution Naruto theme songs, including Vessel of The Star from The Last: Naruto The Movie, and Silhouette from Naruto Shippuden the Movie.
But if the complete Naruto soundtrack is already on repeat on your music player, why not indulge in them with the Limited Edition Naruto vs. Sasuke Final Battle Memorial MDR-100AAP h.ear on headphones. The left can is engraved with the symbol of the Uchiha clan, one of the founding noble families of The Village Hidden in the Leaves in the Naruto Universe, while the right can is engraved with the symbol of the Sage of Six Paths, representing the God of Shinobi.
Both the player and headphones are high resolution audio ready, and will be available from 1 November 2016, exclusively at Sony Store Bugis and Sony Store 313@Somerset, at a recommended price of S$299 each.
Every purchase of the Limited Edition Naruto vs. Sasuke Final Battle Memorial series will include a souvenir packaging design, featuring the image of Naruto in a final battle with Sasuke, packed separately.
So what’s the wrong way to honour a classic TV series? My Friends, here’s how.
