Your Lie in April Exclusive Mousepad – Value $9.99

First up in the box is this Akibento exclusive mousepad featuring the two main characters from Your Lie in April (a.k.a. Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso).

The art is really pretty, and keeps with the “Harmony” theme nicely!

The back of the mousepad is just grippy enough to keep from sliding across your desk. I don’t have a mousepad right now, so I’m excited to have one to start using with my wireless mouse!

Akibento Harmony Pin – Value $1.00?

This little button features Kirito and Asuna from Sword Art Online.

If you’re an Akibento subscriber, it’s probably fun to collect these buttons. Since I’m newer to the box, it feels more like a promotional item for the box than a button I’d want to wear around as a fan. I wish it was just the characters without the messaging.

This keychain-sized Pop figurine is so darn cute! I love being able to tote her around on my keys.

Her pigtails are looking very cool, even on this tiny scale!

I’m just starting to read the Sword Art Online manga, and I really love it so far. I was so excited to see Kirito, one of the protagonists, in this Akibento box!

I love the level of detail in his little outfit. He’s going to perch on my bedroom shelf.

Last but not least, there’s an exclusive surprise item.

Akibento Exclusive School Idol Headphones – Value $29.99

Wow! This is such a nice set of headphones. And the School Idol imagery is the perfect complement to the “Harmony” theme!

Read our review of the Akibento December 2016 box!

The headphones are adjustable, which is nice so that I can get the super squishy ear pieces right over my ears.

The headphones aren’t noise-canceling or anything, but their size alone did at least muffle some noise.

Best of all, they fold up for easy travel! I have a trip coming up this spring, and I’m looking forward to getting some good use out of this handy pair on the plane.

Verdict: I like this Akibento box. I thought it was cool that the holiday spirit made an appearance, but the whole box wasn’t all Santa suits and holly. After all, the holidays are here and gone—and I want to flaunt these items year ’round! There was about $81.00 worth of value in this $23.95 box, so it’s well worth it. The tough part, of course, is that you might not know or love all of the featured shows and characters equally. If you’re well read/watched in anime and manga, or if you’re just not too picky, then this box should be super fun for you.

What do you think of this month’s Akibento box?
