Alright - making the box is probably one of the best things about this box. It was immediately commandeered by Enchilada. ':3
Out of all the boxes, I think this one had the most visible hype on my social media feeds. Why? Because of the -official- Sailor Moon and Cowboy Bebop goods.
But - I think I was sort of spoiled on the contents as some friends got their boxes earlier in the month and were commenting on some of the goods. XD;
So! What's inside?
1. Space Patrol Luluco AFlutter Heart Glass Charm
Space Patrol Luluco was one of the best short animation series of this year. Each episode was roughly 5 minutes and with a funky intro, dreamy outro, and a very relatable story about first love - sort of - it was one of the most original and memorable series of recent memory.
Oh, and these kids transform into guns. How is that not amazing. :D
2. Sailor Moon Bottle Opener
For an "official" Sailor Moon item, this... wasn't what I was expecting? It's a fully functioning metal bottle opener with a laminated illustration of Sailor Moon's Moon Stick, complete with the Silver Crystal/Maboroshi no Ginzuishou. Add a little flair to popping a bottle of soda or beer? You're covered!
3. Robotech LED Light
This is one of the items that was spoiled for me early on - it's an acrylic panel of one of Robotech's Veritech Fighters with a LED light base that switches from Red to Blue to Green.
I was a little iffy about it, but once I plugged it in and turned it on, it's actually kinda neat. I think I'll display this guy for the remainder of the holiday season since we don't have a Christmas tree. :D
4. Cowboy Bebop Ein plush
The first thing that fell out of the box was this cute plush version of Ein from Cowboy Bebop. Man, this takes me back to the early 2000s. Fantastic soundtrack, really engaging story, and memorable characters. If you haven't seen it yet, do yourself a favor and check it out on Crunchyroll!
This plush is small and cute - It's roughly the same look and size as the original Ein plush that came out years back, with the exception of slightly darker fur and EIN printed on his tag.
5. LootAnime Galaxy Phone Charm
Carrying on the styling from last month's BLADE box, this charm is also the mascot character, Yume, in a space suit with a sparkly laminate over the artwork to simulate stars.
Is there a growing fanbase of Yume? I guess we'll see~ :D
6. LootAnime Galaxy Poster
This month's poster breaks from the comic layout with returning artist Finni Chang (who also did the Victory box a few months back).
It's a great illustration of Yume exploring space. Makes me think of AKB0048 and Guardians of the Galaxy.

For the theme GALAXY, the crate had a nice variety of goods this month! Certainly a little something for everyone - old fans, new fans, girlish and boyish items alike.
My favorite item this time around? Probably the box itself. It was fun to assemble and I can think of a few creative uses for it!
Next month's crate is [DIMENSION], touching on ultra popular series like RE: Zero, Sword Art Online, No Game No Life, and Log Horizon. You have until January 27th to get in on the crate!
If interested, use my link to get there! and use code: NEMUNEMU for $3 off your next order!
Thanks again to LootCrate for sending me this crate for review! See you next time! :DShare this:
