  • Most horrible of bonus items!

    Widgets Magazine
    I snagged one of the last Hare+Guu sets from TRSI recently, and as I opened it up, the cool feeling of relief washed over me as I saw it did not include the ghastly chest-hair wig bonus item.

    I mean, what was AN thinking? Ewww, just eww! And ick! I have no doubt that late at night it creeps around the dark corners of your anime shelves, nesting and doing who knows what!

    What do you think, is that one the worst, or are there other equally traumatizing bonus items that have been inflicted upon us poor, loyal masses? Or even on-disc extras of shame? And do other regions have disgusting loot like this, or are we particularly good at it? Tell me how it felt, as whatever-it-was spilled freshly out of the box and into your lap!

    The only thing comes to mind are the God panties...though I find them more amusing than anything.

        I have that wig somewhere in the house, sealed too. I don't know if I would call it horrible, but useless. I have the Shuffle! got panties too. I can't think of much from the past releases. A recent one that I consider useless was the LE flag from Chrome Shelled Regios, Part 1.

          Although I never bought it, I would say those t-shirts that came with the Lucky Star LE sets. They are just the silliest things out there, and something I would dare not wear outside of cons. Those things made me not want to buy the LE for that series.

            Hellsing bloodbag. So bad, it's good.
            The Gokusen jacket. Was that supposed to be even wearable?
            GitS movie as an extra on the 2.0 release. I've seen VHS tapes that look better.

                I have never seen either one of them in person. The bloodbag though is a interesting LE for Hellsing. What material was the jacket made out of?

                    The jacket was made out vinyl. Flimsy vinyl that should've passed as a disposable poncho. I forgot what I did to it.

                        yeah. But even if someone did use it, it's safe and non-toxic..according to the label.

                          Curious to know if anyone here have the Gantz ball not scratched. This is one of the reason I didn't bought it...

                            Haha, I have two of those from a Bandai panel, and yeah, I'd say that's a good idea. (Though they've doubled as night-shirts around the house occasionally, which has been awkward to explain).

                              same here. The scuff/scratches weren't terrible on mine and I think I might've made them while moving it around in the box. As for other LE items, does anyone remember what series a shell-necklace came from? I might've mixed it from something else, but it's basically a pink clam shell piece with a brown tie.
