My best friend of over fifteen years is attending grad school in Japan. She is super sweet and amazing, and I’m so happy to call her my waifu for laifu (I’ll show myself out). She accepts me just the way I am, which is free-range organic anime garbage. I was floored when she told me she sent me anime merch from Japan. !!! I love my bbcakes so much.
So many Free!
Eternal Suffering items.ヽ(・∀・)ﾉ Summer last year was a roller coaster of emotions thanks to this anime, and when the special episode was released a week ago, my dashboard exploded with so many Free! posts. What a magical day. :’)
Here are some close-ups of my haul:
I HAVE A REI BODY PILLOW CASE LOLOLOL. This actually works out because I’ve been meaning to buy a body pillow. I had one in Vegas that I left behind, but I sleep so much better hugging something soft. Now I just have to convince my 3D husband to let me bring one of my 2D husbandos to bed.
Bless KyoAni for bestowing upon us the swimming anime that beget all this shirtless packaging. Nyahaha. These are plastic folders, and I gotta say, the print quality is really nice. Bbcakes got me Rei and Sousuke, my two faves. <3 Well, really I love them all. XD They are all precious water babies. I forgot to take a picture of the front (oops), but I do have this outtake of me and Sousuke from my previous post because I am a trash can.
Beautiful butterfly phone charm~ I’ve been keeping my phone bare so I think I will attach this to my work bag. I hope the office cats don’t chew it off. On second thought, maybe I’ll attach it elsewhere. No one will harm my precious.
Bonus Hakuouki! (≧◡≦) I should replay this game for the normal ending, not that it hurts any less than my favorite routes. :’D This freaking otoge. I came for the romance, and I ended up with a powder-crushed heart. It hurts. (╥﹏╥)
Anyway, this item is a mini-towel. The print is patterned after the Shinsengumi robes. I almost don’t want to use it. I wrapped it around my neck when I was letting my dye sit, and I was so scared of ruining it. I’m not sure what to use it for now, haha. Definitely keeping the packaging at least!
Last but not least, a Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun shirt! The anime is HILARIOUS and an absolute recommendation! There's not a single episode where I wasn't laughing my butt off. The shirt came out wrinkled when I opened it, but I'll be hand washing it sometime. I hand wash and drip dry most of my favorite clothes. It's not too terrible since I do it while loading the rest of my laundry, and it's worth it to preserve the clothes' shape and colors. So that's my small anime haul. Thanks again to my bb gurl 4 lyfe! I can't wait to visit her!
