According to J-Cast News, the bottles of Jurokucha tea have been flying off the shelves because of the bundled figures of Mahou Shoujo Madoka★Magica. Asahi Soft Drinks, the maker of the tea, said the sales have increased nearly tenfold and the bottles were almost out of stock only two days after the release.

According to Rocket News, the reporter couldn't find any Jurokucha bottles with Madoka figures at convenience stores around Shinjuku area. He only found unusual vacant spaces in the shelves of soft drinks.

The only reason they're all sold out at so many stores is because I bought them. All of them. Telepathically.

What about morning rescue?

Morning Rescue was discontinued last April because the supply of the raw materials stopped after the earthquake last March.

They're so cute!! I don't have any money or even like tea, but I'd steal a bottle of it for each figurine!

...except Kyuubey's. Because bitch-Kyuubey is bitch-Kyuubey.
