A TO Z OF: PRESENTS TO BUY YOUR FAVOURITE ANIME FAN* THIS CHRISTMAS/ HANUKKAH /ROHATSU/ MAWLID AN NABI/ JUST FOR THE HELL OF IT

*if you don't already have a favourite anime fan then *hinthinthintpickme*

 

Since there's a truckload of festive events coming up, I thought I'd make an A to Z list of anime related stuff for you to drool over. In making this article, I've pretty much doubled my Christmas list. Links (NOT TLOZ KIND) and prices (GBP) included. Enjoy!

 

 

A is for...


Artbooks. One of the most distinguishing things about any anime is the art style, and artbooks focus on this and solely this. You can get them for most popular-ish+ anime series. I'm personally hoping for Yana Toboso's Black Butler artbook because daaaannnggg can that girl draw. 

 

£21.75, http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/0316304417/ref=pd_lpo_sbs_dp_ss_2?pf_rd_p=569136327&pf_rd_s=lpo-top-stripe&pf_rd_t=201&pf_rd_i=4757541945&pf_rd_m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&pf_rd_r=1B0X0407MP522BV0MM62

 

B is for...


This really cute Bleach Soul Society Bookmark is an awesome little extra present.

£2.70, https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/121283396/bleach-soul-society-bookmark?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=manga%20bookmark&ref=sr_gallery_20

 

C is for...


Comicon tickets. Comicon is life, guys. 

 

D is for...


Death Note: Black Edition Collection. These sleek, two in one editions of the series look amazing when all together on a shelf!

£8.49 per volume, http://www.amazon.co.uk/DEATH-NOTE-BLACK-ED-VOL/dp/1421539640/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1448206116&sr=1-1-fkmr0&keywords=death+note+black+edition+collection

 

E is for...


These Totoro Earrings. It's hard to go wrong wearing these.

£6.76, https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/232605425/my-neighbor-totoro-post-earrings?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=anime%20earrings&ref=sr_gallery_28

 

F is for...


Figurines. POP! figurines are really collectible, for mostly affordable prices. If you want to start a figurine collection, POP!'s Mikasa is perfect!

£14.33, http://www.amazon.co.uk/Attack-on-Titan-Mikasa-Ackerman/dp/B00PMQQXDK/ref=pd_sim_21_1?ie=UTF8&dpID=51TfQ85mkyL&dpSrc=sims&preST=_AC_UL160_SR160%2C160_&refRID=0RH80HJNV7G63E6MQDJY

 

G is for...


This artsy Ghost in the Shell print. (Currently on BOGOF with other prints by this etsy account and asdfghjkl they look amazing!) 

£3.38, https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/214967394/motoko-ksanagi-art-ghost-in-the-shell?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=ghost%20in%20the%20shell&ref=sc_gallery_3&plkey=6ceb5ba09af2498386267ee1bc33cdbd500d1e84:214967394

 

H is for...


This awesome survey corps hoodie. 11/10 would recommend.

 

£8.99, http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/like/111767921081?adgroupid=13585920426&hlpht=true&hlpv=2&rlsatarget=kwd-131843268786&adtype=pla&ff3=1&lpid=122&poi=&ul_noapp=true&limghlpsr=true&device=c&chn=ps&campaignid=207297426&crdt=0&ff12=67&ff11=ICEP3.0.0-L&ff14=122&viphx=1&ops=true&ff13=80

 

I is for...


iPhone cases! Especially this Naruto case, which completely bitch-slapped out of the stratosphere my inhibitions that Naruto merch never looks cool.

£7.95, https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/254654841/naruto-kyuubi-nine-tails-face-anime?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=anime%20iphone%20case&ref=sr_gallery_1

 

J is for...


Japanese lessons. Some anime fans try and speak fragmented Japanese using what they've learnt from watching subbed anime, which is often super embarrassing. Japanese lessons would be the perfect solution! They don't have to be with an actual teacher; you could buy them games, books, computer programs... 

 

Speak Japanese in 90 Days, £8.99, http://www.amazon.co.uk/Speak-Japanese-90-Days-Becoming/dp/1518699715/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1448206246&sr=8-1&keywords=learn+japanese

Q is for...


This Totoro quilt! (You have no idea how hard it is to find stuff beginning with q. It's even harder to find anime related stuff beginning with q. At one point I found a One Piece quilt, except it was about £gazillion, so that was out of the question. This Totoro quilt is my saviour. Hail the Totoro quilt, and all that.)

S is for...


Snack subscription boxes. This is a monthly box delivered to your door and filled with loads of yummy Japanese treats. Okay, so this isn't reeealllyy anime related, but anime characters eat food and you eat food and everyone can agree that food is nice.

£15, http://tastejapan.net/

 

T is for...


This Totoro hoodie that legitimately made me squeal when I saw it.

 

£20.26, https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/169097751/totoro-hoodie-my-neighbor-totoro-big?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=anime%20hoodie&ref=sr_gallery_32
