This was a Limited Edition release. Limited Editions are rare or unique beads which are only released in very small quantities, and which are only available in stores until sold out.
This bead celebrates the original artwork of Manga comics and was sold exclusively on a Japanese television program. Profits from the sale of the Manga bead went towards building a pre-school for underprivileged children in Sri Lanka.
