Loot Anime “Squad” July 2018 Review

I didn’t get this July box until early September—bummer! C’mon Loot Anime, get that schedule together!

Loot Anime includes a poster in lieu of an info card. There’s a product list with photos of each item on the back. This month’s is Attack on Titan themed.

The t-shirts Loot Anime includes in its boxes are reliably pretty cool. They’re comfy, too—this gray tee is 100% cotton. I like the Revy-centric design.

Exclusive No Game No Life Pin

I’ve gotten a lot of pins that follow this same design via this subscription—rectangular and modeled after a manga cover. I kind of wish they’d shake up the design a bit more. I’d be more likely to wear it on a jacket or bag if it was maybe just the shape of Stephanie’s head, etc. Something that works with the other enamel pins I have, which are all different shapes and sizes.

My Hero Academia Water Bottle

I’ve always got a water bottle by my side, so this bright yellow bottle will definitely get some use! I like that it has a spout and straw—it reminds me of the kinds of water bottles and sippy cups that I’d get with lunch boxes as a kid. I like that the graphic of the characters spreads all around/all over the bottle. Sometimes water bottles will just have the name of the series across the front, which feels kind of… underwhelming to me. So having this big, bold design makes me very happy 🙂

Loot Crate Exclusive Edition Bungo Stray Dogs Manga Vol. 1

I like the mix of drama, intrigue, and action-packed fun in this story! The “Loot Crate Edition” part is really just the cover design, which is admittedly pretty cool. I do wish there would’ve been something a little more notably special about it, like a fold-out poster or more full-color pages.

loot anime squad missing item note

Exclusive Attack on Titan T-Shirt

The last item in the box was supposed to be a second t-shirt, but it looks like it’s been delayed. I was already bummed out about the box arriving as late as it did, but now one of the items is late, too? Definitely a let-down.

The Verdict: I love the number of exclusive items you get in this subscription, but wow the shipping delays make it hard to endorse! Everything is great quality and covers a wide variety of awesome anime and manga series, but are those items worth the wait? That’s tough to say!

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No. Sign up now to get the upcoming box!
COUPON: Use code ADDICTION or SAVE3 to save 10% off any length subscription, or $3 off month-to-month.

Value Breakdown: At $33.95 (shipping + cost of the box), the average cost of each item I received (minus the second tee that didn’t come) is $8.49.

  1. LootAnime was supposed to deliver an Attack on Titan duffel bag in their crate for this box. They released a spoiler and everything, up until just the day or so before the crates actually shipped. Not only is there no tote, but the replacement item for it is still heavily delayed. I’ve defended them up to this point, but I’m done. This is completely unprofessional and may even be illegal.

  2. Loot crate is just spreading itself too thin with so many specific lines. It takes a lot of things to fall into place for each box. Exclusive items from different suppliers don’t always deliver on the expected timeline. I think loot crate should condense their boxes and focus on fewer subscription options to ensure quality, timely delivery and longevity of fans interest.

  3. It’s kind of messed up that the advertising for this crate showed an Attack on Titan duffle bag, but the actual item is a shirt. If you contacted support about this they said the bag was an error.

    Sure that happens, but it is something that needs to be fixed before the crate actually ships. They continued to advertise with it. Basically they got away with false advertising.

    Loot Crate is struggling and it’s things like this, that don’t help. At least they were allowing people to send the crate back for a refund if you contacted customer support about the lack of the bag.

  4. What I really wish Loot would do is provide an anime box that is appropriate for a tween/younger-teen boy. My 12 year old boy is 100% obsessed with anime, but so much of the Loot anime box involves upskirts and other sexually-suggestive content that I can’t in good conscience give to a boy his age.
    Come on Loot, make us parents (and our youths) happy!!! I would subscribe to an age-appropriate anime box in a heartbeat! I know I’m not the only one…

    • You could always put together a box on your own. Like a treat for doing well in school. $25 and a shoebox would get some decent stuff for ya. LootCrate is not doing well, so I wouldn’t suspect a crate centered around kids.

    • This is such a great idea, Susan! I’m with Cappy – I might not rely on Loot Crate for a kid-appropriate box, but there’s definitely a need for something like that!
