Donguri Kyowakoku, the Japanese retail chain that sells official Studio Ghibli merchandise, has revealed the adorable Motto! Mushamusha Chokin Bako” (“More! No Face Chomping Piggy Bank“), an upgrade of the original “Kaonashi Mushamusha Chokin Bako” (“No Face Chomping Piggy Bank“) released 4 years ago!
Check it out below:
Apart from being able to devour your coins, No Face can even hold the frog spirit Aogaeru or a big fish in its free hand. What for, you may ask? Well, before eating your cash, No Face will raise its right arm, as if to eat the poor frog/fish, before deciding that your money is its preferred dish (for now).
Music from Spirited Away plays while No Face is eating your money, and one of two phrases can be heard as well, with the spirit saying “I’m hungry. Starving!” or “I’m a customer, I’ll get in the bath too and wake everyone up!” in Japanese. And once the money has gone down the hatch, No Face finishes with a burp.

The Motto! Mushamusha Chokin Bako will be released on 22 July at Donguri Kyowakoku stores and online for 6,380 yen (US$57.93). According to the company, this is just one of many new items set to be released this year to mark the 20th anniversary of Spirited Away, so we can’t wait to see what else they have in store for us in the near future.
