Japan is a wonderful country that never runs out of anime, unique food, and all things kawaii. It’s a dream destination for many, and while it takes time to save up for a trip halfway around the globe, these subscription boxes easily brings a dose of Japan to our doorstep every month. Check out our list of the best subscription boxes for Japan fans!
For: The anime fan who is also a cosplayer.
Why We Love It: They always send the best wearables, whether it’s a shirt or a cosplay item. There’s always a wearable… and it’s not always a t-shirt! Sometimes there’s a cosplay item instead, which is handy if you’ve got passes to a con and haven’t thought about a costume yet. (Trust me, it’s 100% more fun with a costume!)
Details: Loot Anime partners with Crunchyroll (think of it as anime Netflix!) and is able to bring on even more exclusive goodies.
