It's taken a while since they were originally announced but Sunday's fan meeting event revealed that the INDEPENDENT x Sengoku Basara Citizen watches are now available for preorder. The Masamune, Yukimura, Mitsunari, Sakon, Motonari and Motochika watches will all go on sale in February 2016 for ¥23,000 (before tax).
Customers who purchase through the e-Capcom store will receive a unique 'maki-e'-style box for their watch, as shown at the links above.

Manga artist Yoshihara Motoki has a small request for fans
The Sengoku Basara 4 Bontenmaru-hen manga has just been released as a standalone volume collecting all of the individual chapters, and its creator Yoshihara has asked fans on Twitter whether they can keep information circulating about which stores are stocking the book and how long their copy took to arrive. It might be fun if some foreign buyers can respond too to let him know how we're purchasing his book too, right?
In other manga-related news, Yoshihara's Sengoku Basara 4 manga adaptation is getting a third volume on 27th November 2015, and it's supposedly publishing its final chapter in next month's Dengeki Maoh magazine. I hope that the oft-teased Benmaru-hen manga will follow...
SHARP formally announces their new Cocorobo with a video
Last but not least, there's also an official announcement trailer for the Date Masamune 'Cocorobo' vacuum cleaner from SHARP. I'm sure that I won't be able to afford one but it doesn't make it any less fun to follow the publicity.
