Anime Bento May 2018 Unboxing and Review
Here’s the info card for the box, which has a list of what’s inside.
My Hero Academia Sticky Note Pad
This booklet of pale gray sticky notes is about the size of a credit card and about a half-inch thick. I like that the notes are in a little book-like cover so that they’ll stay tidy and safe even when thrown in my bag.
I’m not sure what to call these three little candies, but if you blow through the hole, they whistle! They have a chalky consistency and a fruity flavor.
Pop Team Epic Graphic T-Shirt
This bright blue shirt has a Godzilla-style Pop Team Epic design created by 8BitWitch. The colors are super fun, especially when set against the bright aqua cotton tee!
I like products like these socks, which are totally fan-friendly but also low-key enough that you can easily sneak them into different outfits. I could totally wear these to work inside fancy Oxford-style shoes, and when I’m ready to show off my Naruto love, I can pop them on with ballet flats!
Attack on Titan Wallet
This wallet is another low-key fandom find! The wallet is brown and the brown fabric has a denim-like feel. There’s a loop for a key, a zip-shut coin pouch, and some classy faux-leather trim, too.
The Verdict: I wish this box wasn’t so expensive! It costs over $40.00 for these 5 items, which feels like a lot, being that one of those items is just a small pack of candy and the other is a simple sticky notepad. Plus, this box has less of a “curated” vibe than other anime boxes around the same price point (unboxing/presentation-wise). I do appreciate that most of the goodies are licensed merch, though.
