All the goodies inside my June 2018 Lootaku Box!
Furyu Girls Und Panzer Das Finale Big Tank Plush ($25) Girls Und Panzer is a Japanese anime about high school girls practicing tank warfare as a sport.
This plush is the German Panzerkampfwagen IV, simply known as Panzer IV. It’s a German medium tank which function evolved from an infantry support role to a tank-fighting function.
You can see that the part of the hatch or cupola is where you can place one of the mascots, which is also included in this box.
In the anime, the sport is known as Sensha-do. It’s entirely practiced by girls and women, and is considered feminine.
Furyu Girls Und Panzer Das Finale Plush Mascot ($10) Subscribers can get one of the following girls of the Ooarai Girls Academy: Miho Nishizumi, Saori Takebe, Hana Isuzu, Yukari Akiyama, and Mako Reizei. We got Saori!
Saori Takebe is a second-year student from Ooarai Girls Academy and a radio operator of the Anglerfish Team. She’s one of the five main protagonists of Girls und Panzer. The cute mascot also comes with a cellphone strap.
Code Geass Wooden Frame Artwork ($12) This artwork features Lelouch and other Knightmare Frames from Code Geass. It’s an anime series that focuses on how the former prince Lelouch vi Britannia obtains a power known as Geass and decides to use it to obliterate the Holy Britannian Empire.
The back of the frame has notches and a stand so you can display it however you like.
I tried sticking the stand at the bottom hole so that it stands as a portrait.
Code Geass is set in an alternate timeline where the world is divided into three superpowers: the Holy Britannian Empire representing Americas (or the Britannia), the Chinese Federation that represents Asia, and the European Union which stands for Europe and Africa.
SEGA Girls Und Panzer Maho Nishizumi ($20) Maho Nishizumi is the sister of the anime’s main protagonist Miho Nishizumi. She is a supporting character and a secondary protagonist of the Girls Und Panzer film.
The figure stands as a whole, with a base to make it stand upright.
Maho is a girl with short dark brown hair, dark brown eyes, and slightly above average stature. She has a similar haircut to her sister Miho, but it’s a darker color and two pieces of hair stick out on each side of her head. Other than that, she bears a striking resemblance to Miho.
This is one of the perfectly detailed figures I got from SEGA! That base looks cool too!
Being the commander of the German Tiger I, and the overall commander of her school’s Sensha-do team, she needs to plan her actions carefully!
She really looks like Miho, if not for the darker hair color. Also, she is the heiress of the Nishizumi family.
Banpresto X Code Geass EXQ Figure CC ($25) The Immortal Witch C.C. (pronounced as C2), is the tritagonist of Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion.
Banpresto always packages their figures in giftable and displayable boxes like this one.
The figure is really easy to assemble, as it only consists of two parts, the whole figure and the base that also comes with a footrest.
C.C. is a girl with long, almost waist-length light green hair, and golden eyes.
She also dons a purple rose hair accessory. She is seen wearing a wide assortment of different clothes, often dependent on the situation or the time period. Here, she’s wearing a blue sleeveless Cheongsam, that reaches a below her knees, and a slit that reaches up to the waist.
She’s also wearing white heeled boots to go with her outfit.
We can’t see but she has a scar under her left breast that resembles a Geass sigil.
Look at that beautiful flowing light green hair! And that’s what you get when you’re an immortal!
This box was badass girl-centric, so it’s great to have this box this month! The figures are beautiful, the complete opposite of the ones from last month. Girls Und Panzer is really an interesting anime, and the tank plushy really looks coo. The addition of the mascot makes it way cooler. My favorite is the C.C. figure, even the color of her eyes are golden! And I’m lucky that she is not playing a decoy for Lelouch in this one or else… I love her in a Cheongsam! This subscription brings in something new every month, so if you’re an anime fan who loves amazing figures and a great variety of stuff every month (with one or two traditional US comics and GOT mixed in per year), this one’s definitely for you!
