May 2019 Loot: Akatsuki GaloreMay 2019 Loot: Akatsuki Galore

AlorenAloren4 months agoLoot
Hey everyone!
Back with another loot that's late. again. but give me a break, exams have been draining me TwT that as usual has it's fair fill of Naruto merchandise (´ ∀ ` *) (I actually just went over this like two seconds ago: it’s all Naruto merch, so if that’s not your thing, now’s your chance to click off haha) I've got quite a bit of stuff to show, so feel free to join me as I bathe in my lack of self control LOL.

Also, please keep in mind that this is a very picture heavy blog. And you’ll be seeing a certain blond bomber quite a lot. Let’s get started!

.・。.・゜✭・.・✫・゜・。.
EBAY

https://i.ibb.co/GPBH7wQ/IMG-20190523-153307.jpg
https://i.ibb.co/ZT6bYch/IMG-20190523-153333.jpg

So I made a bunch of purchases on Ebay because I felt the compelling urge to own more Akatsuki items despite the fact that I already owned multiple items and had even more on order...
So now I’ve got more of the Naruto CCG cards! Of course I had to stock up on a crapload of Deidara ones (plus doubles!)

And a close up on a couple of my personal favourites:

https://i.ibb.co/8d2HMY0/IMG-20190523-153319.jpg

I also got a few Sasori cards! I don’t know why, but they’re more difficult to find than most of the other Akatsuki members. Luckily, I managed to grab three! Definitely hope to get more in the future.

https://i.ibb.co/Y8cGvfm/IMG-20190523-153249.jpg

Decided to include a shot of these miscellaneous Akatsuki cards. I initially only got Kisame for my sister, but ended up giving the Amegakure Orphans card to her as well. I really liked it, but had nowhere to display it :(

https://i.ibb.co/gvPVtRC/IMG-20190523-153228.jpg

I found a suit bundle! The moment I saw these, I immediately jumped on them. No way I was missing out on Gaara in a suit. I love how they each have their own titles, Sai’s “Acacdemy Recluse” one is my favourite lol.

https://i.ibb.co/7RKNLQm/IMG20190523152307.jpg

I kind of got these to go with the suit bundle, but am now realizing that they don’t really match :p I still like the idea of school AUs so I got these two. There’s probably more and I hope to get them someday, but I’m not sure I’ve seen them yet.

https://i.ibb.co/ckM5y34/IMG-20190523-153200.jpg

And that’s the end of the cards (for now)!

Next we have a coaster of the Akatsuki! I like it a lot. One of the limited pieces of official art where Sasori is taller than Deidara XD Feel free to skip this little blurb, but Sasori and Deidara’s heights aren’t accurate throughout the anime/manga and I’m always seeing art/screenshots/etc. where one is taller than the other (and by quite a difference too). Their official heights state that Dei is taller by a tiny bit, but art (such as this one) says otherwise haha. Okay, done my talk, let’s move on!

.・。.・゜✭・.・✫・゜・。.

OTAKU REPUBLIC

https://i.ibb.co/8bfW7nK/IMG-20190523-153149.jpg

Didn’t get as much doujinshi from them this month, but got these three! The SasuNaru doujin on the right is amazing. I read it translated online a while ago, and decided that I needed the hard copy. Don’t regret it at all. If you’re a SNS fan, i’d definitely recommend it.

.・。.・゜✭・.・✫・゜・。.

ZENMARKET

Next we have my big Zenmarket package! First are some pictures of the overall loot: As you can see, the Akatsuki has completely taken over.

https://i.ibb.co/LRs80gY/IMG20190530164050.jpg
https://i.ibb.co/DCkfzTc/IMG20190530164058.jpg
https://i.ibb.co/X3kVdsR/IMG20190530164114.jpg
https://i.ibb.co/bss1gHk/IMG20190530164103.jpg

First I found a bundle on YJA with a bunch of Deidara and Itachi items. I jumped at it cause of Dei, but Itachi was a nice bonus.

This clear file is a really nice size and looks great. I’ve always loved how Dei looked here. Whatta cutie.

https://i.ibb.co/Pg9sN2g/IMG20190530170349.jpg
https://i.ibb.co/NWHWGqW/IMG20190530170401.jpg

https://i.ibb.co/FDmxrgc/IMG20190530170412.jpg

And a close up of the quote on the back.

https://i.ibb.co/pWBc4KY/IMG20190530170419.jpg

Next is this towel. Not sure if i’m ever going to open it, but i’m tempted haha.

https://i.ibb.co/16B34Wb/IMG20190530170437.jpg
https://i.ibb.co/2PDxS2k/IMG20190530170445.jpg

And lastly, this HUGE illustration card of Itachi and Dei. Honestly, they both look derpy in this particular illustration, but I love it nonetheless.

https://i.ibb.co/MPhF42b/IMG20190530170453.jpg

»»————-  ————-««

Also in the bundle, was this Sasuke shikishi. It’s nice, but as you probably already know, I’m no fan of him. Decided to gift it to a friendly buyer whom I sold a Kakashi figure to.

https://i.ibb.co/sQyJZWZ/IMG20190530170222.jpg

»»————-  ————-««

Oops we’re back at it again with cards. I got a bunch of Deidara card bundles off of YJA and am super happy with them.

https://i.ibb.co/WHWYgWt/IMG20190530165629.jpg
https://i.ibb.co/WBjP76h/IMG20190530165716.jpg
https://i.ibb.co/F507LkY/IMG20190530165727.jpg

He’s gorgeous wow (つω`●)

»»————-  ————-««

Totally forgot to include this one in the pictures above, but here’s another Dei card featuring Kisame! Making me realize that I need to stop giving Kisame stuff to my sister and start getting some for myself haha.

https://i.ibb.co/brbWjD5/IMG20190530172827.jpg

https://i.ibb.co/hmFxvzy/IMG20190530170318.jpg

I’m gonna be completely honest. I have 0 idea what this is LOL. I think it might be a mousepad? Whatever it is, it’s freaking gorgeous. Got it for the Akatsuki side (is anyone surprised yet?), but the side with Itachi and Sasuke is really nice too. Sadly won’t be displaying that side anytime soon though because the Akastuki is love.

https://i.ibb.co/Fq4v48G/IMG20190530170156.jpg

Don’t remember what this came with, but it was an extra to one of the bundles I bought. I opened it, and it’s s little illustration booklet of a few sketches from the anime. Pretty cool.

More Sasodei doujins let’s goooo. I really like both of them. The art styles are great and the one on the right came with the little illustration card as an extra.

»»————-  ————-««

https://i.ibb.co/WsbWg0x/IMG20190530165903.jpg

Do you hear that? It’s me hyperventilating. Probably one of my favourite items of this loot and maybe even out of all my goods in general is this animation cel of Deidara! I was suuuuper anxious shipping this out with the rest of my goods, but Zenmarket packaged it really well and it got to me safe and sound.
I don’t think you know how long I’ve been stalking this thing oh god. All I remember is that before the listing went down for like the seventh time, I decided to bid and now I finally have him in my hands :’D

»»————-  ————-««

https://i.ibb.co/JK3YCpy/IMG20190530165149.jpg

Keeping up with the theme of Deidara items, we have this bromide of him in his younger days! Though I’m happy that I have him, I’m kind of pissed that I don’t have Sasori’s child bromide as well because I meant to display them together. Turns out the seller of the Sasori bromide I tried buying wasn’t responding, so I couldn’t buy it D:

»»————-  ————-««

https://i.ibb.co/pvfWkCk/IMG20190530165105.jpg

Next we have a couple of Deidara badges! They’re pretty large and the picture quality is nice. I totally kicked myself after paying for them though, because I told myself “No Dei merchandise unless you get some matching Sasori merch too!” Obviously that idea went out the window fast. *looks over at mountain of Deidara merch*
Ahem. anyway...

https://i.ibb.co/VBRmV1f/IMG-20190609-155106.jpg

After getting Kabuto’s ID card a couple months ago, I decided that the Akatsuki was next on my list to collect. Started off with my girl Konan!! My first piece of best girl merch :’D I’m actually surprised it took me this long to get any merchandise of Konan at all since she’s my best Naruto girl (along with Temari and Kushina ofc).

And I couldn’t buy Konan without Pein, so I got his too! They both look amazing. Now I have to get the rest of the Akatsuki!

https://i.ibb.co/wskztkt/IMG20190530165039.jpg
https://i.ibb.co/SPsGFkV/IMG20190530165045.jpg

Up next is this Akatsuki card. I bought it because it was a really good price compared to what I’ve seen these go for. $40 for a single card? No thank you. The cool thing about it is that if you get the other half, you’ve got the full Akatsuki, and it spells it out in the back too. Still gotta find the other half for a decent price, but for now Im happy with thus one ^^

»»————-  ————-««

https://i.ibb.co/zmpFgqb/IMG20190530165028.jpg

Ok, I swear I’m not stupid, but I don’t know what this is either OOPS. Initially thought it was an illustration card, but it looks really tiny. Anyway, I got it because I bought what I thought was the matching Deidara card from another proxy, but we’ll get to that story in a second...

»»————-  ————-««

https://i.ibb.co/0jZ7K0w/IMG20190530165011.jpg

So after watching the Road to Ninja movie solely to see the Akatsuki again, I impulse bought these stickers. The art style is way different from what they usually look like, but I thought it was kinda cool to see. Gave the Kisame and Itachi sticker to my sister because she would’ve mauled me if I kept another piece of merchandise with her husbando on it.

.・。.・゜✭・.・✫・゜・。.

NEOKYO

So I finally shipped out my Neokyo package after it being there for more than a month to gather my things. I almost thought I wouldn’t make the deadline and have to pay a fee per item (my literal nightmare), but luckily everything came in time! :D Let’s see what we got!

Finally got Sasori’s partner in crime! I’m super happy to have Deidara in my hands and even happier to display him with Sas.

Behold, team Sasodei!

On my journey to buy merch for my upcoming Sasodei ita bag, I picked up a bunch of their items including these adorable rubber straps!

»»————-  ————-««

https://i.ibb.co/sgLGqBw/IMG20190609154736.jpg

If you remember my last loot, you might remember that I bought Sasori’s acrylic keychain. Now I’ve got Dei’s to go with it! They’re both gorgeous and a good size too.

»»————-  ————-««

https://i.ibb.co/mq6P8LD/IMG-20190609-155047.jpg

Wow, Deiren buying more Sasodei doujins? Whoever would have suspected that?
Lame jokes aside, I really want to find the time to read them all. I’ve only read the one on the right so far, but I’ve bought from the circle on the left before, and haven’t been disappointed with their work ever. The one in the middle looks adorable too.

»»————-  ————-««

https://i.ibb.co/yQrVvY4/IMG20190609154353.jpg

Kakuhida doujinshi incoming! Bought this from Surugaya in used condition, but it’s the first time that I’ve got something which looked so obviously used. There are a bunch of marks and scratches present which I’m a bit bummed out by, but as long as it’s not a super important doujinshi that I spent loads on, it’s fine for now.

»»————-  ————-««

Next doujinshi is a bit on the NSFW side, so open with caution pleaseclose spoiler

https://i.ibb.co/Bff9QDn/IMG20190609154437.jpg

Ohohoho welcome to the NSFW side. Behold the lewd Kakuhida! I was super psyched to find this compilation of the Body Buddy series for a really good price. Thank you, Surugaya! At first I wanted to get each doujin individually to get each of the cover art (I especially love the cover on the top left), but I think having it on the back is good enough for me haha.

https://i.ibb.co/w7gMryK/IMG20190609154921.jpg

I’ve kept this doujin in the Neokyo warehouse for such a long time because it was one of the first items I bought before I started to hoard my things there lol. Haven’t got to read it yet, but the art is lovely.

Next we have this two sided coin of Sasori and Deidara! Thought I was getting two coins with each of them on their own, but apparently I forgot that coins have two sides lmaoooo.

If you remember that Sasori card/sticker thing from earlier up, here was the Deidara card that I thought would match. As you can see, they clearly could not be farther from matching LOL. I really like the Dei card though and hope to find the Sas one soon.

Kabuto!!! I found this gorgeous clear postcard on Mercari and just had to get it. I almost want to buy the second one that's still listed now, it’s freaking gorgeous. I took a picture of it in the light and he looks godly ahhhh <333

https://i.ibb.co/WvPg6YS/IMG-20190609-155202.jpg

Here we’ve got another Akatsuki coaster! This one is shows all of their faces and has brighter colours. I love seeing their height differences XD

https://i.ibb.co/jgXfSxx/IMG-20190609-155211.jpg

Another coaster! Every single time I’ve tried to buy this particular coaster of Deidara and Sasori, something always happens to keep me from purchasing it. The proxy wasn’t fast enough, someone outbid me, the listing randomly gets taken down, I’ve seen it all. I was actually amazed that I was able to get it in my hands, and for a good price too! Very happy to finally have it in my Sasodei collection ^^

»»————-  ————-««

https://i.ibb.co/Z67GMpx/IMG20190609154141.jpg

More Sasodei things! I made sure to grab merchandise with the two of them featured together for my ita bag and found this badge!

»»————-  ————-««

https://i.ibb.co/jVrZ6H1/IMG20190609154123.jpg

Another Sasodei badge and oh my it’s adorable. I love how it looks like someone was just like, “Sasori, smile!” and then Dei just hopped in XD One of my favourite badges that I own :)

»»————-  ————-««

https://i.ibb.co/HXdQ1y1/IMG20190609154054.jpg

I got this badge bundle on Mercari I think? I jumped on it because the price of the entire bundle was about as much as people were asking for the Sasodei badge alone. So now I have a third copy of that Deidara badge and a little Naruko XD

Akatsuki Cafe badges!!! <3

Take a good look at these things and tell me they’re not the cutest things you’ve ever seen. Look at them!! In suits!!! I love them a lottttt, but these little bastards were what made me stressed about passing my storage deadline. It took FOREVER for them to arrive at the warehouse and I was starting to worry that they got lost or I got scammed. Luckily, they showed up literally TWO DAYS before my deadline and I shipped that package out as quickly as I could.

They were definitely worth the wait though. My personal favourites would have to be the Kakuhida and Sasodei ones.

.・。.・゜✭・.・✫・゜・。.

BOOTH/ BIJ

The last package was one that I was really anticipating because I used forwarding for the first time! It was a bit nerve wracking at first, but I’ll definitely be doing it again! All of the packages were bought from artists on Booth.

First a picture of all the items together:

This first group of merchandise was from the artist, NK, on Booth. I bought the Sasori and Deidara acrylic swimming badges and they included some adorable extras! The little illustrations of Sasori and Deidara and really nice and I love the little Dei sticker <3

This next batch of merchandise is from the artist, kaixhushicon, on Booth. I bought a bunch of Sasodei acrylic keychains as well as a Kisame can badge for my sister. I don’t even know what to say, they’re all flipping adorable from the keychains down to the bags, everything is perfect *w*

I don’t know why, but the edo tensei keychains in particular look reallyyyy nice.

This doujinshi was by quintal187 on Booth. It’s a gorgeous Kakuhida doujin that I’m very lucky to have. The art is beautiful and I cannot stop staring at how pretty the cover is.

These were from daitiyu on Booth. I saw the cutest Kakuhida doujin for sale while browsing and was about to buy it when I saw there was also a keychain to go with it! So of course I bought the bundle with both ^^ They keychain is soooo nice. I love both sides, but the side with just their hands touching ughhhhh it’s so beautiful.

This last group of stuff is by mahoomawoo0505 on Booth. I got a Deidara doujinshi, and a very unique keychain. The doujin is one of my favourites actually. The art is really, really nice. And the keychain? Hands down one of my best purchases of the month. It’s made of squishy foam type of material and is just...really fun to poke lol. Dei’s glorious ass is a great addition to my collection. Sasori, you’re a lucky man. Only complaint? Needs to be bigger. I need a mousepad version dammit.

The artist also included the cutest thank you card. I love little extras from the artist, it makes everything so much more special ^^

.・。.・゜✭・.・✫・゜・。.

And we’re done! I got a bunch of things this month and am definitely satisfied with my purchases. Also totally realized that this was completely a Naruto loot jeez. Gotta add that to my intro before people who aren’t fans of the series get bored LOL. Probably won’t have a loot blog in a while since my ordering has slowed down drastically, but the next one will probably have a different series included as well!

Anyway, I hope you enjoyed reading through this lengthy post. Hope to see you next time!

I think the mouse pad is actually a shitajiki (pencil board) though it's a bit hard to tell.
