Since around 2005 or 2006, "boob" mousepads have enjoyed a degree of popularity with male gamers. But not all gamers are dudes, and not all dudes like boobs. Hence, this.

This Masamune Date mouse pad is a fan-made creation, produced by doujin circle Waradoko and released last month. Date, real-life historical figure, appears in Capcom's handsome samurai series Sengoku Basara.

The games are popular with female players. Capcom's already licensed out a theme park attraction, a stage play, and apple juice in hopes of capitalizing on the sexy samurai—who really weren't all that sexy!
