[LootAnime] Open the FUTURE crate!

Posted on April 12, 2017

It's time for yet another LootAnime unboxing! This time, it's the [FUTURE] crate and all it's sci-fi anime goodness! From the previews, it mentioned that series like Psycho-Pass, Ghost in the Shell, and Kizunaiver were all included, which honestly perked my interest.

The crate this month comes in the shape of Yume's (LootAnime's resident mascot) futuristic laptop:

Here's a look at this month's offerings:

1. Ghost in the Shell: ARISE T-shirt

I think out of all the items, this is probably the most timely with the new live-action Ghost in the Shell movie debuting this month.

ARISE is sort of like a prequel, detailing the development of what becomes Section 9. Kusanagi is younger, but still sharp as nails. This shirt comes with her silk-screened in black and white on red, ready for action - as usual. Love the militaristic blocky print!

2. Clockwork Planet Manga Vol. 1 - variant cover

Admittedly, this is the first time I've seen Clockwork Planet, but I am familiar with No Game No Life. It's an interesting premise of a mechanics nerd who has an ear for clockwork gears who meets an automaton girl who becomes his "servant" - but not really?
I have yet to read past their major introduction, but it looks promising? It also looks like the anime is also being aired on Crunchyroll this season.

3. Psycho-Pass Dominator USB

Psycho-Pass is one of those series I really should watch, but I have hard time getting over the character designs;; I enjoy Gen Urobuchi's writing style and this series seems to have a solid following, so I might give it a go while the new season of anime is starting up. You can catch it here on Crunchyroll!

Included in this month's crate is a 2GB USB drive in the shape of the Dominator gun used in the series. It's a rubber body, but it opens up to reveal the USB port. Pretty clever!

4. Kizunaiver Mousepad

A few seasons back, Kizunaiver was hyped as TRIGGER's collaborative effort with popular screenwriter, Mari Okada - famous for teen dramas like Ano Hana and KokoSake. It was beautifully styled and an ambitious concept.
Personally, I felt the story had a lot of potential, but fell a little short of my expectation. Playing on the theme of connections and emotions, I was surprised I had little connection to the characters themselves.
Regardless, this mousepad- featuring all the main characters, is a nice addition to my desk!

5. Yume FUTURE Charm

This month's charm is designed by LootCrate's very own Varinya Nunez. Perhaps a little inspired by Overwatch's D.Va, Yume is ready to pilot her mech and fight for the future!

6. LootAnime FUTURE Poster

This month's poster is by Lim Wei Lum of Collateral Damage Studios. (I think they also go under the name "Usanekorin"?) It's a cool take on Yume as a the mecha pilot of the future!

There you have it! Next's month's crate is already lined up and the theme is [HUMANITY].

If that doesn't scream "Attack on Titan", I'm not sure what will. XD It also looks like School-Live and Black Lagoon will also be represented!
