“Durarara!!” PC Eyeglasses Coming Soon
PC glasses based on two characters from “Durarara!!”.
Japanese entertainment media company Movic will be releasing a series of eyeglasses for PC users based on two characters from popular light novel series “Durarara!!”.
Light novel series “Durarara!!” is set in otaku haven Ikebukuro, and tells the story of the high school students and street gangs that roam the city at night. After being made into an anime series in 2010, the series gained a fervent fanbase, leading to a three-part anime series that premiered in January 2015.
The upcoming glasses are part of the “Megane Powered by Movic” series. Intended for use with computers, smartphones, TVs, video game consoles, and other screens, the glasses reduce eye-damaging HEV light (also known as “blue light”) by approximately 35 percent, preventing eye strain among heavy users.
The glasses will be available in two varieties, based on information broker Izaya Orihara and Ikebukuro’s strongest man, Shizuo Heiwajima. Produced with polycarbonate frames and temple pieces and acrylic lenses, each pair retails for 4,600 yen, and comes with an illustrated sheet featuring artwork from the anime series.
The glasses will be released in summer 2015. Preorders are currently being accepted via the Megane Powered by Movic web site.
The Izaya Orihara model’s inner temple pieces are colored pink.
The Shizuo Heiwajima model features green inner temple pieces.
