August 2016 Loot Anime Review Wrap-Up

August 2016 Loot Anime Review - Back to School - Box Contents

The Back to School Loot Anime crate was our first mystery box of anime and manga loot from Loot Crate and crunchyroll. It had a variety of collectibles from academic themed anime and manga.

The Revolutionary Girl Utena Bento Box is perfect for your bento lunches. There is a two-section tray inside to keep your meats and veggies separate and comes with a pair of chopsticks. Utena and other characters from the show decorate the lid.

You can head back to school in style with the black and white Danganronpa tie. The tie has the signature red X where the black and white colors meet. Junko usually wears it with a black cardigan and white dress, although you might need a more conservative look to meet your school’s dress code. You can use the notebook phone charm to decorate your cell or bags.

Released in 2007, the Persona 3 manga adaption is based off the PlayStation 2 video game released in 2006. It’s now making it’s first appearance in the U.S. Loot Anime delivered an EXCLUSIVE soft cover version so you can follow a group of students that fights off monsters called Shadows.

In Japan, the Fruits Basket figures are normally dispensed from capsule toy machines. Now we have all 4 figures from one box. The Tohru figure is wearing an onigiri, because she’s not possessed. The other character figures have hats representing the animals of the Chinese Zodiac they are possessed with.

The Digimon Adventure tri print set includes 3 prints by Akiyoshi Hongo of Toei Animation. The first print shows Taichi Yagami and his Digimon, Agumon. The other two art prints show the DigiDestined and the other Digimon.

Homeroom teacher Koro Sensei is ready to teach his students how to save Earth before the school year is out. The only problem is that he has super powers and appears unstoppable. The three magnets that come with the whiteboard represent Koro Sensei’s moods. Yellow and green stripes = mockery; red with a circle = correct; purple with an X = incorrect.
