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.

Surprise Snack

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!

Naruto Socks

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.

To Wrap Up: 

Can I still get this subscription box if I sign up today? Anime Bento ships within the last 10 days of the month. Sign up now to get the next box!

Coupon: Save 10% off all subscription levels with code MYSUB

Value Breakdown: This box costs $35.00 + $7.39 shipping, meaning each of the 5 items inside has an average cost of $8.48.

  1. I know this is an old Post, but I ordered a box from this company on July 30. Nothing shipped, several emails and tweets sent. Today, September 7, I sent an email advising that I was disputing the charges with my credit card company. Six hours later…tracking email received.
