I am back with another review of LootAnime's [UNNATURAL] box!
Thanks again to Lootcrate for sending me a new box for review this month of June! The box was larger than usual, and literally bursting at the seams with pretty amazing goodies this month.
* * *
1) Exclusive Mob Psycho 100 T-shirt
From the writer of One Punch Man, comes something completely different -- sort of. Instead of super strength, Mob is an ESPER with extraordinary powers who only wants to live a normal life. Unfortunately, there's no end to the trouble surrounding him.
The shirt is a pretty spot-on depiction of Mob at his limits.
2) Parasyte Manga + Bonus short comic
I was introduced to Parasyte the manga back in the early 2000s. It was recommended by a friend and during a house party, I sat in the corner and read all the volumes she had. Flash forward 10 years, Parasyte makes a return to the small screen with an anime and live-action films, and re-issued manga series (since the first English translated sets via TokyoPop and Del Rey are long out of print.)
It's a good mix of action, horror, drama and if you're remotely interested, it's a pretty amazing series to check out!
3) Exclusive Noragamai SnapBack
Noragami is by far my favorite current running series (albeit currently on hiatus as creators, Adachitoka, are on medical leave.) It's a wonderful mix of drama, comedy, Japanese folk-lore, and action. This particular design is taken from an original story in the first season of the anime.
Rabo, one of Yato's rivals, dons this eye design on his beak-shaped headgear. The design is also featured on Nora's masks in the intro credits.
It's a pretty fantastic design, all black with red accents and under-bill.
4) Exclusive Glow-in-the-Dark Death Note Mug
The biggest and probably most anticipated item in this crate was the Death Note mug. It's complelely black with a white silhouette of Ryuk on one side and a skull design on the other, featured on the black edition of the manga.
I personally haven't tested it out, but it supposedly glows in the dark as well!
5) Exclusive Yume UNNATURAL Charm
This month's charm is designed by previous poster artist Varinya Nunez! It features a glow-in-the-dark Yume in her vampire form.
6) UNNATURAL Poster
This month's poster is by previously featured poster artist, Stephanie Kao. It features a sequence of the mascot, Yume, as a vampire shinigami/ god of death - complete with a scythe and vanquishing evil spirits!
