Ipod Nano 2nd Gen Cases with Kanji

Hello all. Some of you have been helping me with deciding what mp3 player I should get:

http://forums.cnet.com/5208-4_102-0.html?forumID=71&threadID=220578

Now that I have decided to buy an 8gb Ipod Nano I want to buy cases for them. My girlfriend and I like to read manga and I am currently learnign how to speak Japanese. I thought it would be kind of cool to find an Ipod Nano case that had some japanese kanji on it. I mean, as long as the case is cool I wont care but I dont want to get her one that is just a plain color. I wanted to know if you have ever seen any ipod nano cases with japanese kanji, etc and where I could purchase them.

Now that I have decided to buy an 8gb Ipod Nano I want to buy cases for them. My girlfriend and I like to read manga and I am currently learnign how to speak Japanese. I thought it would be kind of cool to find an Ipod Nano case that had some japanese kanji on it. Oh, and when I say case I mean something where the ipod can slip into to protect it when it is in my pocket or bag.

Kind of like this:

I mean, as long as the case is cool I wont care what it looks like, but I dont want to get her one that is just a plain color. I wanted to know if you have ever seen any ipod nano cases with japanese kanji, etc and where I could purchase them.

I figure since we both have (or going to have in her case) an Ipod nano I thought that I should buy some sort of protective case for it. I would prefer that they arent just plain colors. Neon colors are ok, if its a decent black thats ok, designs/pictures on the cases are ok. Is there some place I can go to design my own?

However, I do prefer clear plastic cases to show off the colors of the new Nano. I just bought a couple from Contour - one for my pink Nano and one for my 5.5 Video. I got them from the Apple store on Black Friday and saved about $12 for both. The one for the Nano costs $19 at Apple. The only thing is, there is a separate piece to protect the click wheel that I found to be incredibly useless, but wasn't a deal breaker for me. I just left it off.

Whatever you end up doing, make sure it is compatible for the 2nd Gen Nano or better yet, specifically made for it. The connector area and earphone jack are placed a little differently than the 1st Gen. And the thicknesses and the corners are different, so hard plastic cases that worked on the 1st Gen do not work at all with the 2nd Gen.

I also like the silicone cases from iSkin. You get 3 silicon skins and 1 hard plastic visor for the front to protect the screen.

Sorry I couldn't be of more help.
