CultureFly Dragon Ball Z Subscription Box Review Spring 2020

The theme of this box is ‘Training Like Goku!”

So most of you know I usually review loads of beauty and skincare boxes, which I love. But I also am a secret anime addict! I grew up watching Sailor Moon, Neon Genesis Evangelion, and DBZ after school, and they directly influenced my love of color and design. When I saw there was a NEW DBZ box from CultureFly, I was SO excited to get my hands on it!! Buckle up for waves of fun and nostalgia!

 

Zip Hoodie

Just look at this hoodie! Eeeee! I had to look up the symbol because my DBZ memories are a little fuzzy, but the symbol on the back appears to be King Kai’s symbol. Goku wore it on the back of his tracksuit while training on King Kai’s planet in Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods. The front has Master Roshi’s kanji. (thanks, Rodolfo!) This jacket is pretty slick! It features orange and white athletic sleeve stripes as well as an orange zipper with a dragon ball pull.

 

Goku Plush

Goku was never one of my actual favorites in this series because he always just seemed so “good!” I preferred Piccolo and Vegeta because they felt much more complex. That being said, it is hard not to at least appreciate good guy Goku and his desire to protect others, and this plush is really cute!

 

Piccolo Lenticular Notebook

Heck yeah! Piccolo was and still is my favorite DBZ guy (followed closely by Trunks). Even as a kid I loved his costume and his sarcastic annoyance at everyone else in the show. He is also very strong and incredibly cunning, and though he was originally a villain in the series, his respect for Goku and love for his son transformed him into at least a neutral/good guy. He has a great arc! Anyways, this notebook is pretty sweet! It has a lenticular cover that moves into different poses and is super dynamic. The pages inside are marked with days of the week, the weather, and the date, as well as those 7 dragon balls. These details make this useful as a day tracker, diary, or simply just a place for notes.

 

Capsule Corp Water Bottle

Although this water bottle feels a little stiff and isn’t the best quality, I kind of love it. No one would even recognize this was a DBZ fan item unless they also were a fan themselves! The blue color is also a win for me, and it doesn’t leak.

 

Vinyl Decals

I have to admit I am a little disappointed these aren’t sticky on the reverse, because I totally would have put these in the back windshield of my car. Instead, these dragon balls now decorate my laptop and I have the Capsule Corp sticker stashed for when I find another cool spot!

 

Sliding Enamel Pin

This pin features Goku casting a Soul Bomb, and what makes it truly cool is that the Soul Bomb slides back and forth!

 

Vegeta Athletic Socks

These Vegeta-inspired socks make me squeal with happiness! Vegeta is in my top three fave heroes from this series (1. Piccolo, 2. Trunks, 3. Vegeta!) and I think I love him so much because, much like Piccolo, he has a really fantastic character arc. He is also just kind of a jerk with a short fuse who is fun to watch. These socks reference his Saiyan uniform and I can’t wait to wear these!

 

Rubber Bracelets

Finally, our last item is a pair of rubber bracelets featuring two of the most popular (and one of the most meme-able) phrases in DBZ history.

Verdict: I am so happy with this Dragon Ball Z Box! It was such a fun trip into the nostalgia of my childhood. I have already decided to rewatch all of the DBZ episodes I loved as a kid. The contents were all just as fun, but in a slightly grown-up sort of way that anyone of any age could enjoy. The water bottle and hoodie could be worn and used by anyone and are really cool. I also loved the notebook and stickers, as well as the Vegeta socks! This was a nicely assorted variety of stuff too. This was a really good first box and I can’t wait to check out the next one.Β 

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if youΒ sign upΒ today?Β Yes, this box is still available!

Value Breakdown: At $39.99 for this box, the average cost of each of the 8 items is about $5.00.

I love natural/vegan beauty products, Korean skincare, unique jewelry, and weird candies from far away places. When I am not waiting for my next exciting box you can find me painting or taking photographs of interesting people. I never leave home without pug hair somewhere on my shirt and a bold lipstick on my smile.

  1. I think that pin is supposed to be a Kamehameha wave. The spirit bomb comes from above and the attack pose resembles Kamehameha.

  2. That’s not King kais symbol. That’s the turtle school symbol it’s the symbol he wears when training under Master roshi

    • I think we might both be right Rodolfo! I was more focused on the back of the jacket, which is King Kai’s. Totally forgot the one on the front was Roshi’s! I will update that part of the review! Thanks for reading. πŸ™‚

  3. I love Vegeta too. “We can do this the easy way or the fun way.” lol, great parenting by Vegeta. I also love the Saiyan names – he’s literally named Vegetable.
