JoJo's Bizarre Adventure Kakyoin Mascot Pouch is a Big Mood

Nobody likes being immortalized in character goods when they aren't looking their best, but a newly reprinted character pouch of Noriaki Kakyoin from JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders is especially unflattering, because it depicts the popular supporting character after his soul has been removed by Terence T. D'Arby and his body has been turned into a rather unloveable puppet.

Originally released in 2016, the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure Soul-Removed Noriaki Kakyoin Puppet Mascot Pouch is based off of events portrayed in Episodes 39 - 42 of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders - Battle in Egypt. The character pouch is approximately 25 centimeters (about 9.8 inches) tall, and - to add insult to injury - is made of 100% polyester.

Poor Kakyoin. Even when he's transformed into a tiny puppet, he's still a gigantic nerd.
