Hello whoever reads this!
I haven’t visited my blog in a while, but I’m back. I’ve been busy recording videos of my hauls and a review. You can watch them here, please subscribe if you like it! I really appreciate every support. c:
Anyway, here’s the backstory behind this loot. My friend went to Tokyo for 2 months and of course, I wanted to see Japanese goodies. So I had sent her some money to spend for me in Japan and today the parcel arrived!
I have no idea how she was able to put all this stuff inside. The box was packed in pink paper with a bunny on the front and a bear on the back.
We’ll start with all the food that was inside.
Chocolate doughnut candy! It has 5 different flavors and every doughnut has 2 different shapes. The flavors are almond, cookie, choco banana, strawberry and flour (?).
Love Live’s Maki! But wait.. Maki chips? Maki caramel corn! I have no idea what that is and what it’ll taste like.
I guess this is some kind of chips. I do not know what they’re showing on the package. It looks like something that tastes like meat or fish covered in flour.
The super famous matcha tea Kit Kat! I will definitely try one tomorrow, they look super tasty.
One of my favorite cookies! I had found these back then at an anime convention, because I was hungry. They taste very salty when you put it in your mouth and when the cookie starts to melt on your tongue it tastes like those children/baby cookies which also melt on your mouth because they get so soft. And yes, I like salty and yes I like baby cookies so this is a great combination.
Anime/cute stuff related merch!
A Rilakkuma pouch! Not sure what I will use it for, but the outside of the pouch is super fluffy!
Gashapon! She has got me two.
A hamster with a leaf on his head and apple pie with a puff of whipped cream. I like hamsters and I like apple pie, this is perfect! The size is actually pretty nice for Nendoroids.
In the other gashapon is a Nico key chain! I hung her next to my Kotori key chain on my dream catcher. I just hang them somewhere in my room since I would break or lose key chains if they would actually hung on my keys.
A super cute Maki cup! I will definitely drink lots of water from it this summer.
More Love Live?!
Nana volume 1 and Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun volume 1! I actually wanted to read Nana, because I had seen the anime and the same story goes for Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun. Although I can read Japanese (only Hiragana and Katakana lolol), I barely can translate anything. So this will be fun.
A free magazine which had a map of Akihabara in it, it showed stores that sell anime merch and other nerd stuff. Hello Kiss-Shot!
Fake eyelashes and a face mask. Two things I barely use in my life, but I wanted to give it a try.
A pen to write pretty in Japanese! Or at least, I hope I can write in Japanese with this pen.
I’ve kept the best for last. The figures!
Shimakaze from Kantai Collection by SEGA! Although Shimakaze has a lot of figures made by big manufacturers, I really prefer this one. This one might not be the prettiest or has not the highest quality, but it does have the best pose. Or at least, I preferred a more dynamic pose and SEGA’s Shimakaze had it! I like her size, she might be 1/8 or 1/8,5. Her base is her biggest con, but it probably can’t be helped because of her pose. I just hope she won’t lean, because she’s a prize figure.
Battleship Princess or Senkan Seiki, also from Kantai Collection by Taito! Apparently my friend had a lot of trouble finding this figure. But she did find her in the end and I love it! Her crazy base makes up for how tiny she is. Her size should be around a 1/12, because her proportions look like Figma proportions. While I was trying to get her into the base, I kept looking at the hand and at some point the hand freaked me out a little. Because the sculpt of that hand is very good.
Here you can see the huge size difference between the two prize figures.
This is the end of the blog post! Thank you for reading.
