January’s Loot Anime arrived with visions of gears, a dark speedster, a slice of life from Class Zero, and a few items that ask a comical question of the fantasy RPG setting. Game On! includes goodies from Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?, Final Fantasy Type-O, Sonic the Hedgehog, and Steins; Gate.

Though I’m unfamiliar with the franchise, my favorite item in Game On! was the exclusive Steins; Gate t-shirt that depicts either mad scientists or steampunk gods on a backdrop of gears within gears. The sweet image of science heroes in their Beautiful Mind fugue state on a snug cream-colored shirt reminds me of Professor Layton and the Unwound Future. While reminding me of Professor Layton is not the same as including a Professor Layton t-shirt, I am officially intrigued by Steins; Gate.

As new manga is always desirable, my second favorite item in Game On! was the Loot Crate limited edition of Takatoshi Shiozawa’s Final Fantasy Type-O, which includes an exclusive bonus poster based on the cover art.

Sonic the Hedgehog’s nemesis, Shadow, is the subject of this exclusive Sonic figure. It’s not a Banpresto, but it’s still a pretty nice figure that should delight Sonic fans.

If you are a fan of Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? Memoria Freese, you were in luck this month, because not only did you get this awesome pin set of Bell and Hestia, each on a double pin-back, you also got a poster, the refolded crate itself, and bonus content for the DanMachi mobile game arriving later this year.

Though Game On! was a good crate with a lot of quality items, it may have suffered a little in comparison with last month’s incredibly satisfying Underdog crate. That said, I’m happy with the shirt and intrigued to experience its content in some medium; I enjoy reading manga; the Sonic figure will make someone here very happy; and, we do use cool and nerdy pins.

While Game On is no longer available, until February 27th, you can order Tech, which includes goodies from Astro BoyPsycho Pass, Battle Angle Alita, and Robotech.
