Recently I bought another Hanabee Mystery Box. Last time I got the pleasure of watching Tokyo Fish Attack (and yes, that pleasure was mostly from laughing so hard at the storyline or just the general staring at it wondering what was supposed to be going on). I also received Girls and Panzer complete OVA series that I just haven’t got around to watching but will do so eventually and will probably not be overly thrilled about.
You might ask why I would buy another box when you don’t know what you are going to get and you don’t know if you will like it. I like the surprise and I like finding new things. I would never have gotten to watch GYO Tokyo Fish Attack if it hadn’t arrived in the box and while I wouldn’t really recommend it I certainly had fun watching it.
So, what’s in the box?
This time I got two complete series on Blu-Ray.
The first is Devil Survivor 2. I’ve watched it before and I remember quite enjoying it until the last couple of episodes but I don’t really remember much else about it so I’m putting it in my DVD stack to rewatch and then review. It won’t be an overly favourable review unless my memory is faulty, but it was also enjoyable enough to try again.
The second was Blade & Soul which I’ve never watched. I’ve had it on various watch lists but have never gotten around to it so I’m actually kind of looking forward to the watch once I’ve got some time.
And will I buy another box should another be on offer down the line? Definitely. So much fun waiting to see what arrives and then the anticipation of watching something different. Anyway, keep an eye out for future reviews (although given my current schedule they are probably going to be a ways off).

Not knowing what you will get makes it really exciting.
Kind of reminds me of Viewster’s Omakase box (something like) I might get one
The game of Devil Survivor 2 was much better than the Anime. I’m actually really confused as to why they didn’t adapt the first game, since the first game would be much better suited to being translated to Anime because of it’s story. It was still pretty fun regardless.
I’ve seen some similar Mystery Box deals before, perhaps some time I’ll get one for the thrill of the unknown.
Looking forward to seeing what you end up with next time 🙂
I always wondered why you would adapt a 2 and not a 1 of anything really. When I first heard the title Devil Survivor 2 all it made me wonder was where part 1 was for the anime at least.
There is just something about opening things that you don’t know what’s in it, that gives it that much more excitement. I also collect trading cards (have just bought a shiny new box of Rogue One trading cards) and it gives a kick to open a new packet every time. So yeah I can understand your excitement on this 😀 Nice to see that it was worth it as well!
