eu·phe·mism: The act or an example of substituting a mild, indirect, or vague term for one considered harsh, blunt, or offensive.

Just in case you thought it's now perfectly mainstream and normal to be an anime fan, there's ADV's Najica Blitz Tactics Collectors Edition. Usually I'm all for special edition anime releases, complete with useless extra stuff, but Najica is a little different. The online store lists the item as "Najica Blitz Tactics DVD 1 (Hyb) + Empty Artbox + Garment." Now, neither boxes or garments are new in collector's sets, but usually we're talking about a cardboard box and a T-shirt, but in this case, we have the super-duper bonus of:

Exclusive Collector's Edition Box; includes Vol 1 of the series and a box to hold all three volumes, plus an exclusive pair of Najica Blitz Tactics panties!

Oh, so that's what they meant by "garment." Now, I'll buy just about anything if it's cheap enough, and I'm hardly against fanservice, but I am not buying female undergarments, even if it's clean and unused.
