Earthbound creator and Nintendo collaborate for another fun thing ⊟

Hobonichi, the Japanese company headed by Mother/Earthbound creator Shigesato Itoi and the maker of fine daily planners, has teamed up with Nintendo for a cute, unexpected product: Super Mario Bros. and Mr. Saturn haramaki belly warmers.

They’re part of Hobonichi’s 2014 Summer Collection, available on the company’s online store now. Pingmag and the Hobonichi Love blog explain the accessory’s appeal:

"The haramaki was once strictly functional underwear that had a grandpa-image similar to yellowing long johns. In 2001, Hobonichi reinvented them as fashion items to layer with your clothes.

You know those everyday momentary chills you get when you bend over and your shirt rides up a little? Gone. I see London, I see France, I see someone’s wearing a super handsome belly warmer over their pants. Studies have proven that wearing this thick, extra layer around your stomach keeps the rest of your body warm in the winter. It’s also great in the summer when trapped inside all day under a blasting air conditioner.”

You can find instructions on how to purchase a haramaki from Hobonichi’s Japanese site here. More photos after the break!

This is one of many lovely quotes from Earthbound/Mother creator Shigesato Itoi featured in his company’s Hobonichi Techo 2013 planner, which we published a praising review for earlier this week.
Also published online earlier this week: a translated interview between Itoi and Sonya Park of Arts & Science, the company charged with localizing the popular planner. It not only provides insight on some design decisions behind the English edition, but also goes into the Techo’s origins and early challenges, as well as Itoi’s career switch from advertising to making/writing all the wonderful stuff he puts out now.

Need this: Planners from Itoi’s company

This is going to be the year, right? This is going to be the year when you finally get your shit together, when you get your life organized and make a mark on this world. This is your breakout year.

All you need are some GTD tools to make it happen, you tell yourself. And it just so happens that Hobonichi, the Japanese company headed by Mother/Earthbound series creator Shigesato Itoi produces a popular planner, and it’s now available in English.

The Hobonichi Planners are like a combination schedule book, diary, notebook, and scrapbook, and they are filled with eclectic quotes and “fun items of interest about Japan and countries around the world.” And come December 31, you can pop the book on your shelf, and pick up the next year’s planner, creating a multi-volume chronicle of your life.

The planners run for around $29, but the fancy leather covers cost $168 — that’s how they get ya. Shipping will set you back another $14 to $17, too. There are also fancy limited edition covers on the Japanese site, and some of them even let you slip in a custom design like the official Mother 3 jacket.

Lindsay Nelson, who helped translate the English edition, has put up some handy instructions for the ordering process.
