7-11 7-Eleven Domo-kun coffee cupAbout a year ago, Gamertell’s Hot Japanese Imports talked about Japanese mascots who’ve gotten their own video games. One of the mascots was Domo, the Nippon Hoso Kyokai (NHK) network mascot – a big brown, friendly monster whose mouth is perpetually open and says only, “Domo.” Last year, Domo was the Halloween mascot for Target stores. This year, he’s working for 7-Eleven.

The 7-Eleven and Domo collaboration is going to last from October 1, 2009 until approximately November 12, 2009. To make it easier, let’s just say you have until the second week of November to stop by your local 7-Eleven if you want to see Domo or pick up some Domo related goodies. You may only just be noticing the promotion now though – my local 7-Eleven only started stocking the Domo items this past Monday.

Here’s what you can expect to see if you stop by 7-Eleven while the promotion is running. There are going to be lots of Domo display items. Domo’s going to appear on all kinds of coffee and slurpee cups, and there will be special, limited drinks in honor of Domo. There will be little accessories, figurines, collectable straws, the Domo Volume 1 dvd with all of his collected cartoons, volumes of the Domo: The Manga graphic novel and 7-Eleven gift cards with Domo appearing on them. Not all stores may go so far with the Domo love, so if you’re looking for a particular treat be prepared to look in several stores.

The promotion also extends to the internet. If you stop by the Slurpee website, you can watch three Domo webisodes showing his reactions to slurpees, enter to win a stuffed Domo and discover his official slurpee flavor – Fuji Frost Fanta Apple. Well, technically only two of the webisodes are online right now. The third episode will be online October 19, 2009.

No video games though, sadly. You’ll either have to import the Japanese GBA game Domo-kun no Fushigi Terebi or content yourself with the Domo Dance browser-based game at Domo Nation.
