Anime Bento is a monthly subscription box for true anime fans! With this subscription you’ll receive Japanese toys, collectibles, and other swag from your favorite anime shows delivered straight to your door every month. Anime Bento is committed to sending only authentic products, too. Moe-chan, depicted on the cover of the box, is Anime Bento’s official mascot.
Moe-chan is a master chef and bento artist. You wouldn’t know it by looking at her saucy get-up, but she’s a sweet 16.
She enjoys watching comedic anime and is often caught doodling when she should be working. Her dream is to one day open a great restaurant where food and art can be equally appreciated. She attends the local high school and is popular with her class mates. Moe has very close friends that she works with and always makes sure that they always have a good lunch to eat. When she is not working at a maid cafe in Akihabara or going to school, she helps run the Social media sites for Anime Bento.

The information card shows all the items in this box! I always get excited to see something from a series I haven’t heard of before!
The info card is a postcard sized print of Moe-chan. We were also sent a giftcard for $5 to BookWalker Digital Manga and Light Novels, which distributes e-book versions of manga and novels.
Yuri on Ice T-shirt Yuri on Ice is an anime series about figure skaters in Russia. I haven’t watched it myself but I love the design on this shirt. Anime Bento shirts are always branded with the box name where the tag is which I think is kind of unique!
No Game No Life Clear File No Game No Life is a series originating as a light novel about two stepsiblings who win a game of chess against a god and are given the chance to live in a world where games are everything. This clear file is large enough to hold standard 8.5×11″ paper and would be handy to keep yourself organised at school or your home office.
Tales of Zestiria Phone Charm The Tales series of games is one of my favourites — starting all the way back with the original Tales of Phantasia! I remember playing a translated ROM of it before it was finally released in English for the Game Boy Advance. I actually prefer Tales to Final Fantasy — please don’t lynch me! Different characters were sent out; I received Zaveid!
The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya Character Song Single A series about high school students who form a club to investigate supernatural activity! In Japan, the voice cast often have to contribute their voices to character songs, which are released along with other merchandise. Singles usually include 1-3 songs as well as the karaoke tracks which are very handy for singing along! Anime songs were how I first became interested in j-pop, so I am super excited to have something like this.
Magic Grape Jelly DIY Kit I haven’t done this kit before — it looks similar to the kits where you make jelly balls by pouring one liquid into another, but there also seems to be a bubble/foam aspect as well!
It was great to review Anime Bento again. I think it’s a very predictable and reliable box. You always get a tee and a manga, and a snack. The other items are always fun and cute!
