Anime keyboards bring out your inner otaku

Tokyo company E-Junex recently introduced two keyboards for the otaku set featuring anime-style cartoon babes on the keys.

These pimped-out Japanese keys take the "bored" out of keyboards.

Why should the tactile tools we touch all day be blandly beige, boring black, or washed-out white? Japanese content producer E-Junex recently came to the rescue of aesthetically challenged input devices with two keyboards sporting anime-style gals.

They're perhaps not as pleasurable to stroke as Kazuharu Sakura's luxurious leather keyboard , but they're certainly more practical.

The doe-eyed maidens are a staple in Japanese manga (comics) and anime. They're also plastered over virtually every surface of Akihabara, Tokyo's electronics and otaku goods hub.

E-Junex recruited the talents of illustrators Tony Taka and Carnelian, known for their work on similar characters in video games and dojinshi, or fan-authored manga.

The USB Art Keyboards went on sale through E-Junex's E2 retailer for a limited time this summer. Price: about $100 each--a paltry sum to pay for true otaku.
