AmiAmi Pre-Owned Grab Box Size S for GirlsAmiAmi Pre-Owned Grab Box Size S for Girls

starlightshinestarlightshine1 jaar geledenLoot
Yes, yes, welcome to another grab box loot post~

I like the thrill of the unknown. So when I saw that the grab boxes were up on AmiAmi again, I knew I had to try my luck at least once. So here it is!

It's my first time getting a grab box from AmiAmi so I decided to go with the S size first. Initially I selected SAL small packet, but I guess it was too heavy for it. Imagine my surprise, though, when I opened the website to pay and I saw that I could pay less for ship faster.

No, really, I'm not kidding:

So of course I shipped with DHL. And they were pretty fast - I made payment on Wednesday last week and my parcel was already ready for collection on Monday; too bad I wasn't free so I only received it today (Thursday). So without further ado, let's see what I got!

The box:

The label actually said 5kg. I weighed it myself and it was only about 2kg, how did DHL weigh that box...

I shipped it together with my other monthly orders, so AmiAmi took a bigger box, put my grab box and orders together and sealed it. They also ended up being the only Utapri items I got, I'm actually kind of surprised I didn't get any Utapri stuff since most people's grab boxes seemed to have it. If anyone wants to see what I got: View spoilerHide spoilerhttps://jpeghost.net/x-vwbaaa.jpg

Sengoku Basara 4 clear file ITEM #341788


I didn't know this was a girls' item o.o I don't play this, if anyone wants let me know!

For the following stuff, if anyone wants a clearer pic to decide if you want to get it, please let me know :)

Joker Game Odagiri strap, Starmyu Kakeru sticker ITEM #436586, Tanaka-kun strap ITEM #441082, Nintama Rantaro stretch bracelet, Cardfight Vanguard Touken Ranbu card, Gangsta. Worick Arcangelo earphone jack accessory ITEM #343796, Nil Admirari Migawa Shizuru badge ITEM #426934, Osomatsu-san Jyushimatsu badge myfigurecollection.net/item/390819, Yowamushi Pedal Naruko magnet ITEM #279229


Interesting mix. Some of the items here wouldn't be what comes to mind for a girls box, like that Gangsta strap... Of course there's Osomatsu-san too, though I haven't watched it so I'm not keeping it. I did watch Starmyu, but too bad I didn't get a character I liked more (Shuu and Kaito); giving this one to a friend. I haven't watched Tanaka-kun, but I do like that clear strap thing. All I know about Nii Admirari is that it's an otome game, and it seems fairly popular in Japan?

The only one I'm planning to keep is the Tanaka-kun strap, but I think I'm going to have some problems offloading the rest, especially the Cardfight card (I neither play Cardfight Vanguard nor Touken Ranbu, and my knowledge of Tourabu guys doesn't extend to that character).

Osomatsu Todomatsu mobile cleaner myfigurecollection.net/item/405699, Ace Attorney Phoenix Wright charm ITEM #405462, Daiya no Ace Takigawa figure charm ITEM #417021, Koutetsujou no Kabaneri Ikoma plate badge ITEM #417021, Hoozuki no Reitetsu keychain ITEM #232424, Yowamushi Pedal Arakita ema ITEM #312885, Osomatsu-san Choromatsu Chara Pass (not in MFC database?)


More sports anime stuff. I'm not really into sports anime so having Daiya no Ace and Yowamushi Pedal is wasted on me... Neither have I watched Osomatsu-san. I did sit through all the episodes of Gyakuten Saiban so there's that? I would have preferred getting one of the girls from Kabaneri but I guess Ikoma isn't bad. And I've never heard of Hoozuki no Reitetsu... Everything in this layer is up for grabs.

Yes, I got that infamous Levi figure too ITEM #289493, Osomatsu-san dakimakura ITEM #380792, Free! Nagisa trading chara figure ITEM #199555, Ensemble Stars Leo rubber strap ITEM #479206


And now we get to the reason why my box was heavy... There was a dakimakura cover inside! I was quite surprised to see it, I didn't expect one in my box. Have many people got it? Anyway I don't want it, would really appreciate somebody getting it off my hands.

Haven't watched Free! but that Nagisa figure is cute so I'll keep it. I guess I'll keep that Levi figure too, but the EnStars strap is available too.

All together now!

Final thoughts:

It was quite fun opening it and seeing what I got. I liked that there seemed to be a good mix of things without leaning towards a particular side. Funny enough, I remember writing a comment on another grab box that I don't want to be buried in idol goods - I guess the adage 'be careful what you wish for' really is true, since this box seemed to go out of its way to not include any idol stuff.

Was it worth it?

That's... hard to say. Cost-wise, I guess it does - the RTP of the dakimakura is almost 7 times the cost of this box! But items-wise and how much it resonates with me... Not so much, since I didn't know quite a bit of the series in this box. Not to mention shipping cost, and essentially paying to ship things I'm not particularly interested in.

Would I buy more grab boxes?

Maybe? But writing this post has made me realise that I don't know much about the current anime so I should probably watch more anime first before buying more. And cash is a bit tight so I'm probably not buying for the next 2 months or so.

Actually, I might buy boys' boxes next time, since I've seen a few grab boxes articles on them and they sometimes have things I like too.

Cost breakdown:

Box price: 2180 yen
Shipping: 2650 yen
Total: 4830 yen

Hmm... Not too bad, I guess. We'll see how it goes in the future. Thanks for reading!

Edit: Since I got a few PMs, I'll update the goods that have already been reserved so far.

Osomatsu daki Sold!
Touken Ranbu vanguard card
Enstars Leo strap Sold!
Hoozuki rabbit strap

Other stuff are up for grabs!

H4RUKA (1 jaar geleden) #19636010These boxes really seem so random. I wish they did themes, then I'd buy more of them. I imagine idol grab boxes would sell like hotcakes.
Also I can't believe there are dakis being thrown in some boxes. o.o

For sure! I know there are lots of idol fans in my country. We have a local secondhand goods platform that I always see Utapri/Ensemble Stars/Tsukiuta stuff being sold or group orders. They would sell like hotcakes, no doubt.

I know right? Daki was a surprise, especially in a small box...

heartfulcries (1 jaar geleden) #19637290AmiAmi always does that box in a box packaging when you combine a grab box with something else >.< Ouch on that shipping fee... And IIRC I read somewhere that DHL charge by volumetric weight if it's higher?
Nice contents though! (So much better than what I got for mine HAHA.)

Box-ception! Haha, I think that shipping cost is fairly average among box-buyers? And yeah DHL charges differently so sometimes it's worth shipping by them.

Thanks :3 it's the luck of the draw, really.

Oh, and I'd be interested in the Touken Vanguard card. I'll PM you. :)

How much do you want for the Osomatsu daki? I'm looking for this without breaking the bank. (*´Д`*)

Actually not too crazy about dakimakuras.. I just wanted it to go with my Osomatsu-san collection.

confuzedanimefan (1 jaar geleden) #19597731I got the Yellow Osomatsu (I forgot his name) dakimakura back in Febuaray and I'm trying to sell them too... orz
I kind of wish there would be more specific Grab Boxes like Idol Boxes, Sports Boxes, Magical Girl Boxes, etc. But that's probably more work for them than it's worth...

You mean to tell me there are people who don't want to cuddle up with the Osomatsu brothers?! Just kidding, of course there are. It's kind of worrying to hear that though; I don't really have space for a dakimakura.

Yeah, specific boxes would be nice, but that's way too much work for AmiAmi and it could be bad for the things that Amiami wants to offload on us that don't fit in those broad categories too.

sarahbear (1 jaar geleden) #19597896Maybe you were expecting girly items? But the box "for girls" generally means boy items, like UtaPri and sports anime. "For guys" means girly items, like magical girls and stuff
Nah, I did expect Osomatsu and sports anime stuff haha. I thought I might be getting some idol stuff and maybe some Sailor Moon stuff too (I think some 'for girls' boxes had them, based on MFC articles?), but I guess not. Rather than expectation, it's more like I'm unfamiliar with the things that were included.
