You might have noticed lucky cats in all kinds of asian restaurants and businesses. Maneki-neko commonly referred as The Lucky Cat, is a symbol of good luck, fortune and health in Japanese culture. There are even shops out there dedicated to selling nothing but these Lucky Cats! It's wildly popular!
And now Mr. Shane Jessuphas dug up inspiration from his previous Fortune and Lucky Dunny's and brought it over to the awesome Android platform. They are great! Even the box packaging is awesome.
There are 12 variations and each one of them represent different interpretations of luck, wealth or fortune.
For example, A white cat with a collar coin represents good luck and purity while a black cat with a collar coin represents Safety and protection from evil.
Here is the full list:
Gold (right arm up, with collar coin) : Luck in Wealth, Good Fortune
White (right arm up, with collar coin) : General Good Luck / Purity
Black (right arm up, with collar coin) : Safety, Protection from Evil
Purple (right arm up, with collar bell) : Luck in Health, Beauty
Pink (left arm up, with collar bell) : Luck in Relationship
Red (left arm up, with collar bell) : Protection from Illness
Green (right arm up, with notebook) : Luck in Studies
Yellow (right arm up, with red envelope) : Luck in Marriage
Blue (left arm up, with notebook) : Luck in Career
Gold (left arm up, with Koban coin) : Business Prosperity
White (left arm up, with Koban coin) : General Good Luck in Business
Black (left arm up, with Koban coin) : Business Protection
I received a confirmation on the shipment a couple days ago and I'm told that they are sitting in customs right now. So, I expect them to come in next week but I'm making these available for order starting today.
They are window boxed so you can choose the variant you want or grab a whole case and collect them all!
I'm super excited about this series and I think I might keep one for myself. Perhaps the Gold one with the Koban coin. Mindzai could definitely use some business prosperity.
How about you? Will you be picking this up? And which one are you most excited about!? Let us know!
