When an English version of Teddy Together was announced earlier this year, I was completely shocked. After the Japanese version came out way back in June 2013, there was not a peep of a localization. All of a sudden, Europe and Australia would be getting the teddy bear simulator fully voiced in English only a few months after the initial localization announcement! While I was initially a little skeptical of the whole premise due to being slightly creeped out by the talking bear character, after spending time with the actual game, I can say it’s actually really cute!
Now here’s a review I’m really excited for! Well, it’s always great to check out something new, but I’ve been especially eager to try Yume Twins ever since the new kawaii subscription box service was launched earlier this year by the folks behind Tokyo Treat. So far, I’ve only tried one kawaii subscription service, Doki Doki Crate, and I was left rather disappointed by the number of low quality bootleg items it contained (though I hear they have improved greatly since). I got my Yume Twins order in just in time for the September box, which had the theme “new lifestyle.” Let’s see what’s inside!
Oh my, is it really the end of September already?! Wait, winter, come back! (or summer, if you’re a friend in the Northern Hemisphere) Today I’m going to relive August through this very overdue OyatsuBox review, which includes not one, but two cool summer drinks! Even though they probably planned that for customers who were in the height of summer in August, cool drinks are perfect for me now here in Brisbane, where things are just starting to heat up. But regardless of what season it is, I’m always up for some tasty snacks!
Hello and welcome to what very well might be my first plushie review! Tokyo Otaku Mode was kind enough to send me one of their official Amuse plushies to review, but I had no idea which one I would get… Well, the cat’s out of the bag since you’ve read the title of this post, but I was thrilled to find a big rainbow Alpacasso inside my Tokyo Otaku Mode box! Check out my unboxing video to see what other fun things they included in the package:
Dagashi, or cheap Japanese snacks, are often passed over by international Japanese snack fans in favor for more famous snack products like Pocky, Pretz, and Japanese Kit Kats, but Japan has a long history of fun, colorful snacks and the mom-and-pop stores that carry them. Thanks to anime like Dagashi Kashi, more people are getting interested in these classic Japanese snacks, and to help spread the dagashi love, OyatsuBox has packed their July subscription box full of all things dagashi!
Japan Funbox is the latest Japanese snack subscription box on the scene, and when they approached me to review their Mini box for Chic Pixel, I couldn’t resist the chance to see how they stacked up to the other boxes on the market! Hereby let it be known that I will never pass up a chance to eat Japanese food.
The Mini Japan Funbox offers 5 to 7 Japanese snacks and candy for $15 including shipping worldwide. Compared to the OyatsuBox Jr., which offers 3 to 4 treats and one gachapon for $12 but does not ship to all countries (including Australia), it’s a very comparable price. Read on to see a full rundown of what was included in my box!
Long time no OyatsuBox! Unfortunately due to a postal mixup I didn’t receive May’s box, but I’m back for my regular monthly OyatsuBox reviews! July may be nearly over, but today I’m going to be reviewing June’s awesome box, which included OyatsuBox’s first ever drink. Read on to see what kinds of Japanese snacks, candy, and other goodies await for monthly OyatsuBox subscribers!
