Here I have for you my lovely lovely readers a first blind box opening article of 2017!!! I have a ton of blind boxes to go through so why not share my finds with all you lovely people! I’ve decided to start with a fantastic blind box I found online based on the Gintama series!! I decided to ‘go big or go home’ and I ended buying the whole box set!! I had never seen any Gintama blind boxes before so I was really excited to find some on the website amiami.com (I shall leave a link at the end of the article).
Turns out there are many different types of Gintama blind boxes, more than I thought and they’re all created/distributed by Petit Chara Land and Megahouse. I opted for the Gintama Gin-san no Ice Cream-yasan Fruit Paradise 6pack Box which cost me £46, shipping included. All the characters are in their chibi form and all have a different dessert accompanying them. There are six characters to collect and they are;
– Gintoki Sakata
So who did I get with my first unboxing?
I’m really pleased with this result!! I absolutely love Sougo Okita so I’m very happy to pull him first from these blind bags!! He is completely and utterly adorable!! The cake he has is called Cherrysand and it’s a gorgeous lilac/violet colour. Look at him holding that little cherry!! He is so cute!! You wouldn’t think that this little bundle of cuteness is actually a mega sadist in the anime!!
Okita Sougo is the former 1st Division Captain of the Shinsengumi, and was a trainee at Kondou Isao’s dojo in his youth. He is the younger brother of Okita Mitsuba who raised him after their parents passed away. He is recognized as one of the best swordsmen in the Shinsengumi and takes pride in his job to lead the vanguard as to open a path for the Shinsengumi. Sougo’s most proeminent trait in his personality is his sadistic side. He is seen as being quite evil, even when doing the nicest of things, however he’s very protective for those he cares about which includes his sister and his commander Kondou’s Isao. He always appears to want to ‘kill’ or harm Hijikata, since Sougo wants to become the vice commander of Shinsengumi.
Overall I’m more than pleased with blind box surprise!! I cannot wait to open the next one!!
