It was a good thing I didn’t have a lot of pocket money OR have access to gachapon machines growing up, or I would have emptied my savings all in one go. Though when I think about it, the same argument could be made for why I gravitate towards gachapons and blind-packed figurines now…indulging in little childhood pleasures.
As a result, I own more cell phone straps, collectable figurines, and completely random knicknacks than I have places to put them. I rarely am out to collect the whole set of a series, it’s usually one or two that I’m really after, and advances in technology has made buying them individually a wiser option…usually. But there is always that tempting chance of getting what you want on the first pull…or the second…maybe third…?
