FREE! Iwatobi My Favorite Character Is... KyoAni Exclusive Boxes

Hello, hello!

Ah, the weather (or times in general?) is certainly getting stranger. I was working on a personal project and noticed that it was still bright and sunny out. When I peeked by the corner of my Mac, apparently, it was already 6PM! That never happens here, right? How strange. It's only August nonetheless. And even then, when I was a kid, the skies would get darker by 5PM even during December. It's not that scary, but it is quite weird. Eh, eh? *nudges*

As I'm typing this entry, I feel a mix of emotions. Earlier, I wrote long paragraphs but then I felt that people don't really come to my blog for my thoughts but its content. There are plenty of things I want to say... however, at the same time, I can't control the people who can see what I put out. The internet is this huge place where people from any part of the world (except for that remote island near Indonesia where they'll pelt you with arrows if you're within a 3-mile radius of their place) but people don't seem to understand each other at all. I mean, it's easy to say, "Hey, I've got online friends from Russia!" and to that extent it's good (great for HC, too), but deep down, people are more insecure with themselves than ever before. That and many other sad things...

I guess at times, I have this weird fantasy of living away from the internet. If I simply disconnected or sold my gadgets, I could live the same life I did years ago. (Well, not EXACTLY, I mean... I can no longer wear a sando and shorts and sit in front of my cubby couch to read 3 novels a day... sigh, even my cubby couch can't fit half my butt.) 

I do plan on limiting my time on the internet from now on. I just think that things are more misconstrued than ever.

So... moving on, I haven't done a review on a while because life has taken over! 

Okay... so not really a review, more of a what's inside these biscuit boxes... whatever, lol.

Today, I'll be sharing with you all the Iwatobi Cookie boxes exclusively sold by KyoAni!



I'm more of a Samezuka fan so when I picked these up, the first thing I thought of was: "Samezuka!" but I already got half the stairs when I realised that. Haha! The design is quite adorable. When I laid my eyes on them, I noticed that the colour scheme of the Iwatobi team was rather bland. But upon closer inspection, ahh, the animal totems pop out and I was pleased! 

The first time these were released, people were calling them, "Cookie Boxes!" so I initially thought that they were legit food inside. I was wrong. Good thing!

Makoto!
To be fair, the boxes are quite sturdy and durable. Just don't step on them, and they should last a long time! The printing has a soft matte finish that's smooth to the touch~ I hope KyoAni makes more of these adorable surprises.

Rei!
There are 3 components to the box. A sticker set, a cookie badge and a biscuit acrylic charm. For 2,000 yen, that's not bad! If you're a huge fan of any of these characters then I suggest getting them because they are limited edition!

Haru!
Here's what they look like on the inside! I love how they're packaged.

Nagisa!


I hope you enjoyed this short entry. I'll be back with the Samezuka side soon!

Love,
Mika
