This cover design is based on Shigesato Itoi's 1994 Super Nintendo game, MOTHER 2 (EarthBound in North America). It’s made from a natural-colored canvas material adorned with an embroidered Franklin Badge patch that gives it a satisfying three-dimensional feel. If you tip the cover and view the patch at different angles, you’ll see the way its threads sparkle.
The Franklin Badge holds a mysterious power in the MOTHER series; it’s a key item that shows up in all three games. Inside the cover, you’ll see characters related to the Franklin Badge printed on the ticket pocket.
The two bookmarks have bright blue ribbons and red charms that look nice against the cover’s natural color.
Just wearing the Franklin Badge on your person protects you from powerful attacks. With its special look and feel that will draw you in, this cover is also an item you’ll want to treat as a good-luck charm.
As a free bonus, this cover includes a protractor, based on the item carried around from the start by one of MOTHER 2’s protagonists, Jeff. The numbers are written in a pixelated font, and flying above Jeff in the middle of the protractor is none other than Bubble Monkey!
Do you want to know more about the planner inside?
Starting from this year, you are able to choose your favorite language for the 2023 planner included in this set. It comes in Japanese (called Hobonichi Techo Original) or English (called Hobonichi Techo Planner) languages and you also find an image to see the differences.
Its daily pages offer plenty of space to fill despite the book’s compact A6 size. The graph paper offers an open layout for you to neatly lay out writings, clippings, and drawings. The daily quotes also provide users with interesting reading material.
The thin, light paper, called Tomoe River paper, is strong, resistant to bleeding, and allows ink to dispense smoothly across the paper, an ideal choice for a planner. A special stitch-binding allows the planner to lay completely flat without having to hold it down.
The daily planner starts from January 2023 and ends in December 2023.
