Jujutsu Kaisen Merchandise – Lawson Chibi Character Clear Cups Product Review

(English follows) プラスチックカップなんか要らない、と思いながら発売当日(6月1日)の朝、出勤途中の私は真っ先に行ったのがローソン。いったいどういうこと?この7名の可愛さに負けてしまいました!箱自体も可愛いのでブックエンドとして再利用。カップ自体はプラスチックですが、厚みがありしっかりした作りです。これで毎朝ジュースを飲めるといいね。日常的に役立つ商品が嬉しいです。

The convenience store FamilyMart’s collaboration with Jujutsu Kaisen seemed to be a resounding success, so this time its rival chain, Lawson, is coming up with their own collaboration

Package with the cup and bottle of tea

I told myself I won’t be buying any more merch, as I already have boxes upon boxes of unopened JJK goods. There is never enough time in the day to unwrap them, take pics, write a blog post, upload links to social networks… The goods you see on my IG account make up only perhaps one-fourth of what I have in my flat. It’s terrible to keep on buying stuff that’ll never see the light of day, I know, I know.

Style D with Gojo and the second-year students

I’m thinking of upping my blogging ante from every other day to daily, but that’ll mean after work I won’t have time to do any TV-watching or novel-reading or some other thing apart from writing about JJK merch. Such pure madness! There is so much more in life than going gaga over anime stuff! I know! I really do!

Going Straight to a Lawson

Having said that, let’s look at the latest JJK stuff from Lawson. Ahaha! Yes, let’s do that. To get these cups I had to make a beeline for – instead of the train – the convenience store on my way to work. I knew if I didn’t grab a hold of them as early as possible they’d be gone, especially the ones with Gojo on it.

Side of the package showing all four designs

So I had to ride the train carrying these boxes, find space for them inside my locker at the office, and then lug them home at the end of the day. You’d think that’s not anything to whinge about, but wait till tomorrow when I blog about the *other* merch I bought along with these cups.

Back of the package

Click here to see the official Lawson page for the merch. The designs are clearly presented, they’re lovely, I love them… but I had to put my foot down not to buy all four. “Either you get the chibi pair or the anime pair. Absolutely NOT all of them!” I told myself, in a very stern, you’re-fucking-going-over-budget-this-month tone. So I picked the chibi version, as you can see from the header image.

Explanation of what the package contains

Picking a Pair

While I did love the anime ones, they only had the four main characters (styles A and B in the link above), and I really wanted a Maki Zen’in with them. You know I’m really into her, from early on. So it was kinda a no-brainer to pick the cups with the chibi-style illustrations (styles C and D). I could mix and match but want my breakfast table to look like it has a semblance of… what would that word be? In Japan we use the term 統一感 touitsukan. Some kind of unity, I guess. Not super matchy-matchy but things that come in pairs look better together.

Awwwwwww

They are all wearing some kind of varsity jacket, athleisure if you like. Gojo’s is sky blue to match his eyes, Fushiguro mint green with a shikigami Divine Dog logo in grey, Inumaki in moss green over a hoodie with a neck warmer to cover his mouth, and Panda in a maroon striped number. Maki’s is purple while Kugisaki wears a jacket in red and white, with a blue denim skirt. I think Itadori’s jacket has the best design: orange and black with a hoodie. On the hood as well as upper right chest are Sukuna logos. Isn’t the laughing mouth pocket amazing? I actually want this jacket IRL! xD

Awwwwwww, again

Oi Ocha Green Tea

The bottle that comes with the package is a 350ml green tea by Itoen. It’s one of the most popular beverages by the giant manufacturer. I like the taste – sharp and clear, with just the right amount of bitter.

Small PET bottles of green tea

In Japan, these kinds of tea are unsweetened, so you get to taste the true ‘tea-ness’ of the tea leaves. 

From Box to Bookend

I couldn’t bear the thought of flattening the boxes and tossing them into the paper recycle bin. There is so much cuteness to them, and really, you can’t look Gojo in the eye and tell him he’s about to be turned into pulp. I mean, the guy’s suffering inside the Prison Realm already. I pity him – if he and OMFG Geto didn’t have such a tragic end to their relationship,  Gojo wouldn’t have been walloped by Fake Geto. I know the whole Prison Realm thingy is Gojo’s fault because he let his memories of and strong emotions about Geto get the better of him. *Sigh* I feel for them both, the still-alive Gojo and the already-dead-but-zombie-ressurected Geto.

So the boxes are for keeps. Here they are, as bookends on my shelf:

Whaddya think? 😀

Plastic Cups

As for the cups themselves, they’re light and made of thick plastic but very much look like glass. They’ll actually be useful as everyday drinkware, though obviously I can’t just throw them into the dishwasher like most of my other drinking glasses. 

Next time I’ll write about the other merch Lawson is peddling. Wait, the doorbell is ringing. Delivery guy handing me more… JJK merch. When did I order this? What is it exactly, to begin with? And most importantly, *why* did I order it? I myself have completely forgotten. The madness continues!
