Kuroko no Basuke -Eiga o Mimasen Ka?- Ichiban Kuji Review!

Oh, a few days before the con!

A lot of amazing things have been happening to me. I'm extremely fired up. When other people succeed, I'm inspired to also work harder and exceed myself. It's easy to feel as though you aren't good enough in such a competitive environment. Honestly, there have been times when I'm just simply too tempted to give-up. But why? I've come such a long way. I don't want to throw in the towel and just not even try. I want to continue working hard even if the odds are against me. I could be scared or I could grow to become hateful or whatever. It's just... if I do it then the future I want will slowly disappear from me. I don't want that at all!

I want to continue smiling in spite of adversity!

Anyway, I apologize for such a strange litany. I know I must've bored you with my pseudo-inspirational words. Even still, I want to prove to a lot of people what I'm capable of. And it starts by working my ass off.

Let's start, shall we? I don't want to keep anyone waiting!

Now, I wasn't sure about getting this set. Until I finally just caved in. I started watching Kuroko no Basuke on a whim and... then fell in love. A friend told me that the fandom is pretty dead... but after visiting the cafe? Definitely, not! I've come to love the series and now see it as an equal of Haikyuu!! (from my eyes, okay?)!

The set is divided into two. Basically, the lettered set has their bird mascot design. The numbered ones are chibi designs. I'll be talking about them simultaneously as not to bore you. Which I know most of you will be. But I hope not. Secretly. 

A + 1 prizes are tote bags. These have a rather minimalist design which I'm sure will appeal to a lot of you. I'll take a shot and say these would look cute as lunch bags perfect to pack in your bentos with! <3 I know most of you aren't into that whole bento culture, but I can imagine a cute girl just using this for such purpose! Or maybe to store in your KnB plushies and use it as a mini ita-bag? Eh, eh? *nudges you*

Last prizes are towels. Oh, the great towels of light and love! Whatever shall we do without towels in a Banpresto set? I'll tell you. FREAK THE HELL OUT. That's what. The colours have a slightly muted palette which is quite fascinating considering the set in entirety is vibrant! THESE ALSO FEEL SO SOFT. Perfect for lazy nights in and cold winter days. Or if your boyfriend is acting up then... you know what to do. XD I kid, I kid. Did that sound morbid? God, I hope not.

M and 13 prizes are rubber straps. The chibi rubber straps look rather plain. I wouldn't know about you, but... I'm far more interested in the bird mascot straps. I don't know how this movie theme is related to KnB, I'm still only on Episode 5... I know, I know... I'll hurry up. But just look at how expressive the bird straps are. I mean, come on! Just imagine how much creativity and thought process went into these...! It's a miracle. I say this because our mascots are chicks. And you really gotta think of a way to not make them look plain... ya feel? So, creators! I salute you and all that you do!

2-12 prizes are figures. Were they trying to copy Taito Kuji's deforme figures because if so... they come quite close to the cuteness factor! You just want to collect them all after seeing them sit on that adorable red movie seat. Like come on, it's way too cute. And I know most of you can't resist them, eh? Personally, as of the moment, I'm biased with Kise. 

And that is all...! Did I bore you? I'm always a bit... scared that I'm uninteresting.

A part of me is scared in something. I got news of something that was a bit unnerving because it wasn't what I expected. Honestly, I'm a bit bummed about it. But then I figured, this is just a challenge! I've been through worse. And really, I know that even if things don't go the way we planned, there's always something better. I fully believe that God has His Ways and will continue to help me prosper.

For now, I'm hopeful! And I'm very happy and inspired, I know that with God's help I can do anything so I'm not scared. A lot of people believe in me and in what I do, in who I am as a person so there's no such thing as backing out!
