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.

Skoshbox Review: October 2017

Skoshbox Review: October 2017

Even though it arrived a bit later than usual, October’s Skoshbox was packed with full sized snacks! The info page was no longer the main one on the website, but luckily October’s was archived and still available to view. Honestly, I don’t really like how early Skoshbox posts the box’s contents — November’s hasn’t even shipped out yet and they’re already announcing what’s inside! Takes away from the surprise. Plus, some customers won’t receive their box in time for the page to still be on the current month. I’m on the east coast and packages from Japan like to take their time getting to me sometimes. 🙁

Anyway, that’s enough talk about delivery times and Skoshbox’s website. Let’s move on to the actual review for October 2017’s box!

Skoshbox Review: September 2017

Skoshbox Review: September 2017

This month’s box arrived pretty much intact, and everything inside was safe and sound, thanks to the bag containing it all. (It’s a nice bag! Nicer than most grocery store’s bags around here, honestly.)

The bag was stuffed with six snacks and a bonus plush that I’ll talk about at the end of this post. Sadly, the little booklet containing information about what’s inside was gone and I was directed to their website, where the page had completely different snacks listed than what I received. My guess is that the list is of October’s box, which hasn’t shipped yet and was just pushed to be published too early. I don’t know for sure, though.

Since the website didn’t list the correct items, I had to research and find the snacks’ names and information on my own, which took some time. Unfortunately, I couldn’t seem to find many of the snacks on Tokyo Otaku Mode’s site to purchase directly, either. (I imagine it’s due to the shift over to snacks coming directly from Japan, as their site does say.)

On to the review…!

Skoshbox Review August 2017

Skoshbox Review August 2017

This month’s box arrived a little later than last month’s, to no surprise. I was pretty wary about delivery times when Tokyo Otaku Mode/Skoshbox had shifted over to shipping from Japan directly, as I stated last review. The box was too beat up to even take a picture of, so it’s not here this time. Thankfully, only one snack inside was completely crushed, and it didn’t taste great to me anyway so it wasn’t a big loss.

Moving on to the review:

Skoshbox Review July 2017

Skoshbox Review July 2017

As you may or may not have noticed, I didn’t get around to doing a Skoshbox review last month. The box wasn’t anything special, though, so you weren’t missing out on much!

The way Skoshbox (or Tokyo Otaku Mode) has shipped out their boxes to its customers has changed starting this month, so the timing on these reviews won’t be nearly as consistent as it used to be. (Though it was never super consistent in the first place, heh.) The boxes are coming directly from Japan to the United States via SAL, which is very inconsistent but usually slow. I order SAL items fairly often and sometimes they come in two weeks, others a month.

So, I can’t guarantee when reviews will come out, but I hope that they are within the first half of the month. I’d hate to have multiple boxes to review at once!

Anyway, to the review for July 2017!

Skoshbox Review May 2017

Skoshbox Review May 2017

Apologies for being a tad late on this, but I had gotten a little distracted with other things.

This box is special, too, since it’s all Glico brand goodies! The sunglasses were an extra bonus, and they say Pocky on the sides.
