MyJapanBox KitKat February 2018 Review

MyJapanBox KitKat February 2018 Review

I love KitKats. Japan loves KitKats. Unfortunately, I have never received any in a Skoshbox, so I figured I would try some from another subscription service.

I ended up going for MyJapanBox, since I went with them before for their One Piece box and their One Time Box page listed a KitKat variety.

Note: I had to Google Translate the packaging for these as there wasn’t an English pamphlet or anything in the box. I think I guessed the flavors well, but if not please let me know in the comments!!

As like last time, the box was plain brown with no discernible branding or anything.

Skoshbox Review: February 2018

Skoshbox February 2018 Review

Skoshbox Review: February 2018

As you have probably noticed, I didn’t write a Skoshbox review for a few months. I posted on my Twitter that I wasn’t feeling up to writing about November’s or December’s, due to holiday stress and such, but I fully intended on writing about January’s! Unfortunately, the box came very late (after the 20th) and two items were taken out of it by US customs due to having undeclared meat powder. That was a frustrating and disappointing experience, but thankfully February’s came with everything. (The box looked like a wreck though, and it didn’t come until the 17th.)

I wish I could write these sooner but they come very slowly to me! 🙁 Sorry about that!

The list of the items sent in this box is on Skoshbox’s official page.

Trunks Premium Color Edition Figuarts Review

Trunks Premium Color Edition Figuarts Review

Confession: I didn’t like Dragonball Z as a teenager. I gave it a few shots, since it aired before Sailor Moon on Toonami (I believe it did, anyway) but it never really grabbed me. Perhaps it was partly due to how I never watched the beginning, or even attempted to find and rent some of the early episodes from Blockbuster (RIP). Either way, I didn’t enjoy it and I kind of forgot about giving it an honest shot again until recently.

Dragonball Z Kai helped me get the original story of DBZ without the filler, and it made the overall experience much more enjoyable. Of course, since I love figures, I ended up poking around the internet to see what was available. To no surprise, the answer was a lot. 

As I had heard very nice things about most of the SH Figuarts Dragonball line, I figured I’d pick one out and see what I think. I was torn between Piccolo and Trunks; Vegeta was actually my favorite character but he had a few more versions than the other two and I didn’t want to have to pick between them, haha.

I ended up going for Trunks since an auction was ending within 5 minutes of me finding it and I figured it was fate. Or something.

Sanji 20th Anniversary Figuarts ZERO Review

Sanji 20th Anniversary Figuarts ZERO Review

Hello! It sure has been a while, hasn’t it? Unfortunately, I wasn’t doing too well the past few months with stress and illness related stuff, so I passed on reviewing Skoshbox or writing about anything, really. I’m doing a bit better now, but the January 2018 Skoshbox has yet to arrive for me, so ….

Figure review time!

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Minissimo Buying Guide

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Minissimo Buying Guide

Minissimo are cute, somewhat petit figures much in the style of Nendoroids. I wrote about the Josuke Higashikata one quite a while back, and while he did have some problems (namely the value for the price,) he was very cute!

The Minissimo line is produced by Di Molto Bene, the same manufacturer of the Super Action Statue and Statue Legend lines. The first Minissimos released were Josuke Higashikata and Crazy Diamond. As of this writing (December 2017) only Parts 3 and 4 have had characters released! Three characters from Part 4 are still in the prototype stage, and no word has been said of any further releases. I personally hope this line isn’t discontinued, but it has been a while with no news…

EXTRA Note! This line, as far as I am aware, DOES NOT have any bootlegs! This is great news since it makes it easier to safely buy a figure without worrying about poor quality. This may change in the future but this line has been out for quite some time, so you’d think it’d have been bootlegged by now if it was going to be.

While I’m at it with the bold text, let me also throw out a disclaimer that the Amazon and eBay links are affiliate links that provide me a very small commission of off every purchase. This comes to no extra cost to you, but I want to let you know that they do help me out some! Thank you!

If a character is not listed, a Minissimo for them doesn’t exist! Ctrl + F to quickly go to your favorite part (using words for numbers)

MyJapanBox One Piece October 2017 Review

MyJapanBox One Piece October 2017 Review

In keeping up with the subscription box reviews, I’ve decided to pick up one box from a different service once in a while to write about! It’ll keep things interesting here, to say the least.

This month, I went for MyJapanBox. Seeing as how they have an entire One Time Box page, I figured it wouldn’t hurt to pick a box and go for it. Since I recently caught up on the One Piece manga (and since there’s no JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure box) I went for the box featuring goodies from the series.
