Hey guys,

I just read about a service called Anime Bento. From what I can tell, it's similar to LootCrate in that they send you a box of anime-related goodies each month at a fixed rate. I was wondering, does anyone have experience with this or a similar service?

There's also another service that does basically the same thing called Betoyo Bento? Not sure which one is better. If anybody has experience with either, please let us know. haha

It's actually worth a watch. It's presented as a harem anime, but the core of it is people fighting in super markets over discount bentos. It's quite funny.

Same here, which is why I'd purchase the full year's subscription. Saves money!

Well, they are pretty similar. Here's the websites:
Anime Bento; Betoyo Bento

Anime Bento has a far more professional looking website. Their Facebook page has some unpackings and some people showing pics of the contents of their box.

Betoyo Bento has a similar assortment of stuff, but also brags about including candies. Looks like from previous comments that Anime Bento does too. Betoyo Bento has some details about box contents after their shipped on their Instragram page

It all sounds interesting, but too rich for my blood

Thanks for posting links, and like you, (without having seen it yet.. pages are loading) it's probably too rich for me as well.

EDIT: having seen it, it's a good deal for those that don't mind your typical overpriced plastic crap.... It's too much for me though, especially considering I'd rather just go out and buy what I want, and they don't seem to send anime specifically.

THOUGH.....

now it's got me thinking, it would be an awesome service if you could work out something with Funi or one of the other licensees that produces DVD/BR (sorry, CR), and send the first disk of a random series (based on flavor profiles when you sign up) along with two or three merch items (a keychain a tee, and maybe a toy) for $40 a month....

I really liked the stuff in the boxes! If you like boyish anime stuff and Japanese knick-knacks, then Anime Bento is for you! If you are more into girly anime stuff, you should subscribe to Betoyo Bento. (They have at least one or two "girly" anime things in their boxes a month)
