The Besties Loot Anime has arrived to celebrate anime camaraderie with a pink pal to rub out your swinish sins, a magical girl for your shelf, a bit of swag from the pirate life, and chronicles of pop rock friendship. Besties included merchandise from Seven Deadly Sins, Madoka Magica, K-On!, and One Piece.
Unless you made a lot of mistakes in school, chances are you haven’t used as much eraser as went into the exclusive Seven Deadly Sins Hawk oversized eraser. This truly gigantic eraser weighs in at a whopping eight ounces. According to this handy weight equivalent chart, this eraser weighs as much as two bananas or four Krispy Kreme glazed donuts. That’s a whole lot of eraser, and a substantial piece of fandom for Seven Deadly Sins fans. This is such a fantastic pig eraser that it’s my favorite item in Besties.
Since the Banpresto figures began to be included in Loot Anime, every month they bring the wow with a highly detailed, painstakingly colored figure that translates an anime character into three dimensions. This month’s Madoka Magica Madoka Kaname figure is no exception, and it is my second favorite item this month. She has posable arms, at least three shades of pink, and wild anime hair.
The exclusive One Piece Tony Tony Chopper knapsack is a great drawstring cinch bag, just the size for a carry-on or for use at an anime or comic convention where you’d like to keep your hands free. In Western Pennsylvania, the simple fact that it is a One Piece themed backpack makes it as rare as a unicorn. It’s also quite a bit sturdier and somewhat wider than most cinch bag backpacks.
The Loot Crate edition of kakifly’s K-On! Volume 1 is a trade paperback sized manga with high quality, bright white paper stock and several color pages. Yen Press makes great looking manga, and this one is no exception.
November’s phone charm featured Yume’s bestie, Kitty, and the poster art by Renee Park depicts Yume enjoying some reading time with her feline friend. Equally exciting is a $10 gift card to VRV premium, which will be used as we currently have the free model. While this month’s crate includes no crate craft, the Besties themed art is an interesting design, and it will make a nice storage box.
Overall, Besties was a s great collection of quality anime merchandise. The gigantic pig eraser put a smile on my face, the Banpresto was incredible, the backpack will be used at Tekko, and I have more manga for my reading pile.
While Besties is no longer available, until December 27th, you can order Underdog, with exclusive merchandise from My Hero Academia (spoiler through link), Black Clover, Saint Seiya, and Batman and the Justice League.
You may be underestimated but they shouldn’t count you out. In December, we’re rooting for the #UNDERDOGS! This month includes exclusive items from #MyHeroAcademia, #BlackClover, #SaintSeiya, & #BatmanandTheJusticeLeague! Sign up by 12/27 to get yours! https://t.co/IEVaMMTfTA pic.twitter.com/wHqtWUh1Ox
