Loot Anime “Odyssey” March 2019 Review
Loot Anime usually includes a poster in lieu of an info card, but it looks like they have swapped to that smaller card format. I wonder how people might feel about missing out on a poster each month. There’s a product list with descriptions of each item on the back. This month, the box is “Odyssey” themed, and in typical Loot Crate style, it is months late.
This is a smaller mug (they refer to it as a teacup on the info card) featuring Rem, a water magic wielder. I think the pale blue interior is appropriate for her magic specialization. It is a very cute mug, though quite underwhelming, especially when combined with our next item in the same box.
Naruto Tumbler Glass
I have a couple of problems with this item. One, we received this item already back in the February 2019 Loot Crate. I know not everyone gets both subscriptions, but I can’t help but feel there is likely a ton of overlap and getting this again feels like it was just a leftover and tossed in. Secondly, this is the second cup item in this box. I love getting them every so often (they are a great way to enjoy your fave fandoms from your office desk!) but two in one box is too much. I also have to wonder how excited younger subscribers will be about mugs and glasses instead of fun pins or figurines. The glass itself is actually really heavy and the illustration is crisp and bright.
Ninja Themed Red Bull, 8.4 fl oz
Is it sad that this was the most exciting item this month? I love Red Bull (though I am down to like one a week from a 1/day habit!) though I usually buy sugar-free. This particular can features the face of arguably one of the most popular Twitch streamers, Ninja, and comes with a card detailing a contest where you can win a chance to play with him, and likely lose badly in front of the entire internet! He seems like a nice guy though, so maybe he would let you win a round?
Overwatch Anniversary Tee
We could have received either this Overwatch shirt, a Voltron design, or one from Castlevania. I would have picked this out of that bunch! This black shirt celebrates the Overwatch 3 year anniversary and features the entire cast of playable characters. The back has the Overwatch logo and a callout regarding the anniversary.
Exclusive Loot Anime Bumper Sticker
The last item is arguably a filler piece. A flimsy bumper sticker rounds out this box.
The Verdict: The Loot Anime assortment this month was not good. It felt really random and was not exciting at all. The Red Bull was my favorite item, which is not a good thing. If you love kitchen goods, this box was a winner for you. If not, you can join me in sipping our Red Bull and wearing our Overwatch shirts. I hope next month is an improvement!
