Amiami Grab Box for girls!Amiami Grab Box for girls!

heroizumiheroizumi1 year agoLoot
Alright folks, after being super disappointed with the grab boxes I ordered a while back, I decided to give it another try.

Last time I ordered a Kamen Rider grab box and a Gundam grab box. I know that at least the Gundam one isn't worth it for me. The Kamen Rider one was pretty good but so much of it was stuff I didn't really want or stuff I already had.

This time I'm trying out the s-size grab box for girls. Sure I'm not exactly a girl, but I figured it's the best way to get some pretty boys to look at. The box itself was 1680 and the shipping was 2190. That brings the total amount I put into this box at 3870yen. Keep that in mind as I go through this blog.

This blog will be picture heavy....mostly blurry pictures, I apologize D:

So let's kick this thing off!

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/heroizumi1486841126.jpeg
Here is the box itself (on the right). It has the sticker saying that it is not to be opened on the top. I wish they didn't do this because after opening up this one I'd really like to get another but I want to order a larger size box. I wish I could ask them to combine two small boxes into a single box and ship it that way so the shipping isn't ridiculous like last time. Oh well, maybe they'll have mediums or large ones again. =/

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/heroizumi1486841128.jpeg
And of course the flier! It's another New Years one since I had it shipped as SAL.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/heroizumi1486841130.jpeg
And here is the first layer!! Automatically I was like "ooooo slim wall scroll!! I hope it's someone cool! And "oh boy...I hope there isn't a LOT of Osomatsu-san stuff..."

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/heroizumi1486841134.jpeg
*mild pants crapping* OH MY GOD!!!! This was a scroll I really wanted but didn't even know All Out!! existed when it was on pre-order. By the time I saw it existed they were cheaper in the sale section but didn't pick it up because "ahh not many people seem to be into this show yet" and the next time I went to look at it they were gone! This single item made the box 10000000% worth getting.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/heroizumi1486842084.jpeg
I mean look at it! It's beautiful!!!! Anyway, let's lay out the first layer.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/heroizumi1486841132.jpeg
Alright, there's that scroll on the left side. There's some stuff I recognize, but nothing that I'm really really into besides the Sekizan wall scroll. The King of Prism keychain caught my eye because the character's appearance is definitely my type and the artwork is quite pretty. I decided to keep it because of how nice it looks and upon opening the keychain the darker part of the yellow "liquid" in the bottle is actually kinda sparkly and very pretty. Yellow isn't really my favorite color but this keychain is very nice.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/heroizumi1486841260.jpeg
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/heroizumi1486841262.jpeg
Anyway, sorry for the blurry horrible photos. Here's the Yowamushi Pedal cards. They look very nice but I'm not the biggest YowaPeda fan.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/heroizumi1486841264.jpeg
And there's that Touken Ranbu badge. It's a really nice looking badge, but I have no idea about Touken Ranbu stuff. I did look up everything though, so I at least know his name is Iwatooshi. He seems kinda like a character I might like though.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/heroizumi1486841266.jpeg
Next is this Boeibu can badge strap. I'm not the biggest Boueibu fan either. I might have kept it if it was Ryuu or Yufuin though.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/heroizumi1486841268.jpeg
And now another series I know nothing about! Once again apologies for the blurry photo =/ I know Idolish 7 by name but I don't really know any of the characters. This dude is rather cute so I've already displayed him on my shelf. I can't help that glasses are my thing.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/heroizumi1486841383.jpeg
More Touken Ranbu. I guess this character is named Honebami Toushirou. I couldn't find this particular mini clear file in the database.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/heroizumi1486841385.jpeg
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/heroizumi1486841387.jpeg
Here's those Psycho-Pass post cards. I didn't take them out cuz I've not watched the show yet and don't know if I'll like it enough to keep these. They look like they'll be pretty nice quality though.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/heroizumi1486841391.jpeg
And yet another series I know nothing of! This time it's Ensemble Stars. I know there are approximately 8000 characters and this one is Oogami Kouga. He is quite cute, but once again, I don't know much about him. I know that I need to not get into Ensemble Stars though because my wallet can't handle it. XD

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/heroizumi1486841389.jpeg
And so you know what was in that fancy little black box, it's an Osomatsu-san pen! I'm not huge into Osomatsu-san but this pen is really pretty. I was terrified when I saw the original retail price was 3500yen though. That's a LOT for a pen, especially for an anime themed pen. It's definitely a high quality pen though because it's got the Kuretake name on it. I know their stuff is really nice, so this pen must be pretty fancy.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/heroizumi1486841720.jpeg
Time for the next layer~ This layer has a lot of flat stuff again~

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/heroizumi1486841722.jpeg
Fairly easy to lay out. Only 5 items. Once again some idol stuff, this time it's The Idolm@aster sidem and Uta no Prince Sama. I have some random UtaPri stuff that I bought just because it was inexpensive and the characters were pretty. I'm not quite sure what I'll be doing with this stuff. There's also a giant Sousei no Onmyouji stand can badge. I didn't end up watching that show. I tried it out but it wasn't quite the show for me. Also another two pricy items. First I'll talk about the Osomatsu-san item there. It's actually little pockets you can hang on your wall to store stuff, perhaps pens and stationary, or perhaps if hung near a mirror you could put stuff like make up or hair stuff. I don't think I'll be needing it, lol.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/heroizumi1486842086.jpeg
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/heroizumi1486842088.jpeg
And there's that last item! Yes this is a schedule book from last year, but I'll definitely keep it!!! It's one of my favorites, Hoozuki no Reitetsu!!! The artwork inside is beautiful so I might end up using it as stationary for little letters maybe.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/heroizumi1486841724.jpeg
And here's the final layer! This seems to have a lot of little trading figures and such!

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/heroizumi1486841726.jpeg
Here's everything laid out! Most of this stuff needs to be opened up to see what I got! I was actually a bit sad when I finally saw Gintama stuff but knew that I already had what I wanted from that Puchi Charaland set. But there was still a niginigi mascot to be had, so that's good!!!

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/heroizumi1486841728.jpeg
First what was that gacha?? It was Chuuya from Bungo Stray Dogs!! I was surprised there wasn't more Bungo Stray Dogs stuff in this box actually. I wish there was more ;__; I'm not sure what I'll be doing with ole Chuuya. I might keep him because he is really cute XD

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/heroizumi1486841868.jpeg
And of course, more Osomatsu-san. This time an acrylic keychain of Todomatsu.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/heroizumi1486841870.jpeg
More Touken Ranbu you say??? Of course XDD This time we have Mitsutada. He was one of the characters that I had kinda been looking at for a while. I have no idea what sort of dude he is but dang he's pretty. So I will be keeping him for sure!

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/heroizumi1486841872.jpeg
More Idolm@aster and this time it's someone called Mizushima Saki. I think this character is either a boy who dresses as a girl or perhaps possible a MtF transwoman. I'm not sure, but if they've put a character who is supposed to be a transwoman in a boy band that's very sad =/ Once again, I don't know anything about this series so my apologies for not knowing much about it.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/heroizumi1486841874.jpeg
Yep, more Touken Ranbu. This time we have a rubber strap of Hotarumaru. He's cute but not really my type.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/heroizumi1486841876.jpeg
Now this was a big ????? for me. I wasn't really sure why this was in here, but it's a nendoroid petit of Chrono from Nanoha. I'm not too big into magical girl stuff so I won't be keeping this, even though it's the one guy from the series, lol.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/heroizumi1486841975.jpeg
And here is a series I'm rather familiar with! Kuroko no Basuke! This time we got Murasakibara. I wish I could have gotten Midorima, Kagami or Aomine ;__;

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/heroizumi1486841977.jpeg
And another Kuroko item! This time it Ochatomo! I quite like this series of trading figures, I've actually got a Jiraiya from Naruto coming sometime soon. I got Kise, once again wishing I got one of the characters mentioned above.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/heroizumi1486841979.jpeg
Ah! Another show I know XD Tiger & Bunny. I saw someone else got one of these trading figures a bit ago and got the suit version of Barnaby. I was lucky enough to get Barnaby! I'm definitely keeping him despite me telling myself I was gonna clear out some of my T&B stuff. This chess piece figure is just too nice looking to get rid of ;__;

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/heroizumi1486841981.jpeg
Ah yes, one of this niginigi mascots. My friend tanzanite loves them and I've been telling myself no for so long....They are quite cute....But this one isn't someone I really know. I haven't seen Free!! High Speed yet. I'll hold off on maybe selling him until after I've seen it...

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/heroizumi1486841983.jpeg
Oh no. Another niginigi...and this time it's someone I like. Pattsuan ;__; Oh no. I've delved to the depths. I found someone who was hosting the Yuri on Ice ones who had Chris left over and ordered him....whoops. What? The kitty suits for them are still available on amiami for preorder and they're only 300yen? Oh no....Whelp.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/heroizumi1486842080.jpeg
And finally here's the Autumn & Winter puchi charaland. I already have Gintoki and Hijikata so anything I got from these boxes was going to either be a duplicate to sell or someone I don't particularly want to keep....Luckily for this one I know what to do with it....fufufufu

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/heroizumi1486842082.jpeg
And the random weirdly old item of this box? Rurouni Kenshin tate-posters. I haven't watched Kenshin in ages and it wasn't ever a show I was super into so I'll prob be finding a new home for these. It's just crazy that this item from 2011 was still sitting around with amiami. They don't even have the original price for the box listed on their website anymore!!!


Okay, so this concludes this grab box opening! Now the big question, was it worth it?

Well I actually made a breakdown on this list LIST #80486 for all of you to check out. If you just want to hear the final numbers, here we go.

Total spent: 3870yen
Total value at original retail price: 27515yen

Holy monkey that is a good deal. Yes, you'll definitely get stuff you give zero craps about, but one man's trash is another man's treasure.

I decided to keep 8 of the 34 items for sure, there are still a few I'm not sure if I'll be selling or not. If you do see something you're interested in let me know. I'm willing to trade too if you think you've got something you think I'd like!

I am keeping the following for sure: All Out!! Sekizan tapestry, the King of Prism keychain, the Idolish7 Nikaido stand can badge, the Touken Ranbu Mitsutada rubber strap, the Koutetesujyo no Kabaneri pen, the Hoozuki no Reitetsu schedule book, the Tiger & Bunny chess piece, and the Gintama Shinpachi niginigi mascot. I also have plans for that Kamui trading figure. >XD


Anyway, if you saw this post and thought "wow I love a LOT of stuff in that box!!" definitely try getting your own box from amiami! Sometimes they're a pain in the butt to find by searching in the search bar but you can usually find them in the pre-owned section. I definitely recommend these boxes to anyone who has spare money laying around that likes surprises. I think they're pretty worth your money, especially when we have a medium like this website to find people who might want to trade or purchase some of the things you don't want from your box.


As always, thanks for reading! I hope you're having a lovely day!!

Maakie (1 year ago) #18265702That is amazing you got a wall scroll you wanted so much! It's how I felt when I got a few really nice trading figures from set I collect in a box!
I recommend watching season 1 of Psycho Pass (season 2 is a lot less..good..and don't get me started on the movie lol). Psycho Pass has a very promising set-up, but is not the best at telling the story. Still an interesting watch if you like sci-fi thrillers.
And that is a fancy pen, lol! I noticed a lot of Osomatsu stuff getting very high quality item releases, such as the 5000 yen t-shirt (yikes!) that was in one of my boxes.
I don't see any dates printed in the 2016 schedule book? So you can use it whenever? :)
This box never seemed to end btw. xD So many layers!!!
Also a heads-up about M boxes: They seem to have a lot less items, just bigger. Not necessarily more value. You will still get a lot more than what you paid for, for sure. :)


I was so surprised to see that scroll too!! I'm glad I could get my hands on it! The art is so nice looking ;__; <3

I'm still really thinking about the medium box just to compare what is different. They're not too different in price so I don't mind checking it out at least once.

And the page I showed in the schedule book was just a lined note page but there were calendar pages in the front of it. :D Still is a cool find though!!

And I agree, I was super impressed with everything in this box! It just kept going and going!! The top layer was probably my favorite but there were cool things throughout, ahaha.

blackmoongirl (1 year ago) #18179606Apparently, Saki Mizushima is just a crossdresser with a strict "You gotta be manly" dad and an obsession for cute things.

Awww that kinda makes me feel bad for him. ;__; That had to suck ;__;
I think I know some irl people who were like that so I can understand the struggle.

The game is another sinkhole, besides the merch. itself. It's ultra time-consuming, especially if you end up liking rare/limited swords. It was originally a computer game (although there is a mobile version), so you could've just made an account on any Japanese computer and tried it out. >__<


Auuuuu you kill meeeee

I didn't realize that it was originally just be PC, dangggg.
While I was living there I ended up getting tired of Japanese all the time and ended up more interested in English language stuff (like Walking Dead, Sherlock, etc lool), now that I'm back in the USA all I want is Japanese stuff. I have a feeling that it might be the same deal again, but I'm not sure. XDDD

heroizumi (1 year ago) #18178577Noooooo you're gonna suck me into sword hell ;__;
I want to play the game but I hate dealing with proxies so I'll probably end up playing it whenever I move back to Japan again. ~_~
I wish I would have know about this stuff when I was there...not that I could have done much with a flip phone though, loool.

But...but...don't you want this? >=D

heroizumi (1 year ago) #18178555At least right now this link should work: slist.amiami.co...
But if it doesn't you can search for them. I put the method I used below :D
Usually they show up in the pre-owned section but if you just search "amiami" in the search bar and find an item made by amiami (not stuff that is marked as having an amiami bonus) and click on it. When you get to the item page somewhere on the right (below the price) it will say 'Brand' and have a clickable link labelled as "amiami." Click that and it will take you to everything made by amiami which will include the grab boxes. I was able to find them on the last page of their products.
Right now it looks like they have 5 varieties, s-size kamen rider/tokusatsu, s-size for boys, m-size for boys, s-size for girls and m-size for girls.
I don't know why they don't show up when you just type "grab box." It would be so much easier D:


Thanks! I'm gonna try my hand at it. ♥
