URAHARA x Luna Haruna
Collaboration Slip-On Sneaker project has started!

The URAHARA x Luna Haruna Collaboration Slip-On Sneaker project has started! The project is a collaboration between the anime URAHARA, which began airing worldwide in October 2017, and Tokyo Otaku Mode!

Staged in Harajuku, URAHARA is an anime series where the most adorable items show up one after another. Those cute items will be used to produce and sell slip-on sneakers to fans of URAHARA and Harajuku fashion around the world!

But that’s not all.

This project is a collaboration with the extremely popular anime artist Luna Haruna! Haruna has challenged herself as a voice actress for her role in the anime and she even sang the ending theme “KIRAMEKI☆LIFELINE!” Haruna has deep ties with Harajuku, as she’s a representative of Harajuku fashion and has even modeled for the magazine “KERA!” Along the way, we’ll post updates showing Haruna’s design process.


About URAHARA

URAHARA is a kawaii sci-fi girls’ drama set in Harajuku. It is currently airing.
URAHARA tells the story of three high school girls, Rito, Mari, and Kotoko, who open a limited-time shop called PARK in Harajuku during their spring break. There, they plan to sell the original fashion goods and sweets that they create, but their goods are stolen by Scoopers. Scoopers are aliens that cannot create original items, so they must steal them. Through their fights with the Scoopers, Rito, Mari, and Kotoko look within themselves to understand their own creativity, why they want to create items, and what they are creating them for.

By thinking about “what creativity is to them,” the girls are able to understand that their worries and troubles are what lead to their growth. The story has a general theme that’s personally applicable to anyone.

M1 “KIRAMEKI☆LIFELINE” TV Anime URAHARA ED Theme
M2 “Baby, maybe” TOKYO MX/MUSIC ON! TV LisAni! NAVI Theme Song

Luna Haruna released her 3rd album LUNARIUM in June, but after challenging herself as a voice actress for the anime URAHARA, her 11th single will be the anime’s ending theme. Haruna helped write the ending theme “KIRAMEKI☆LIFELINE” in which a battle between a jazzy horn section and a rock guitar unfolds. This new style is called Dotabata Pop!

Coupled with the song are “Baby, maybe,”(TOKYO MX/MUSIC ON! TV LisAni! NAVI Theme Song) a song with a memorable and refreshing chorus, and “Flutter,” which depicts the dilemma between the deviation from real and virtual realities.

Apple Music will be releasing the songs worldwide on November 10th!

Design Selection

Luna Haruna is a popular anime artist who is challenging herself as a voice actress for the first time! She voices Rito Sudou in the anime URAHARA and even sang the anime’s ending theme “KIRAMEKI☆LIFELINE!”

Haruna has modeled for the magazine “KERA,” the representative magazine of Harajuku fashion. In order to decide a design for the URAHARA x Luna Haruna Collaboration Slip-On Sneakers, she came to our Tokyo Otaku Mode office!

We’re looking forward to seeing what kind of sneakers she’ll design!

Fast-forward to the start of the design process.

Haruna says that when it comes to fashion items, she loves shoes the most. When we told her about the project, she immediately went into serious mode.

Next to her, Haruna’s stuffed alpaca Minami-chan watches over the project’s progress.

Items are chosen for the instep, above the toes.
Slip-ons have a large instep that decides a viewer’s first impression, so it’s a very important part!
A lot of food shows up in the URAHARA anime, but “sweets” seem to make up the main part of the slip-on’s design!

Next, the design for each side is decided.
The sides have very little surface area and many minute adjustments are needed to line up the items, so Haruna is choosing carefully. Other than food, plenty of accessories, cute furniture, and other various items show up in the URAHARA anime, so be sure to check them out!

When you look at the screen, you can see the words “LEFT” and “RIGHT.” Does this mean that the left and right sides will have different designs!?

Finally, Haruna decided all of the color schemes.

Here we’ve shared with you a few photos of the design meeting with Luna Haruna, where she thought up ideas with all her might in a short amount of time.
We have a hunch that the completed, creative slip-ons will perfectly match URAHARA’s theme!



The Next Step

Using the items that Luna Haruna chose, we’ll create a final version of the design and manufacture a sample.
Until these one-of-a-kind URAHARA slip-ons are completed we’ll continue to update this page with more information, so check again soon!
