The anime fan gift guide!
It’s that time of the year when you start thinking about gifts for the anime fan in your life, or maybe you’re looking for something slightly different to add to your own list? Well, worry not! Below are some of our picks to put a smile on someone’s face this Christmas.
For the fashionable otaku!
Uniqlo’s UT collections are always fantastic, but what could be better than a Dragon Ball focused one? With so many different designs to choose from, this is the perfect gift for a Dragon Ball fan.
About the collection: “Dragon Ball” is a globally beloved manga that has been adapted into an iconic television anime. The show tells the story of good-humoured and lovable heroes who embark on an epic quest to source the seven Dragon Balls. Celebrate the moments, characters and adventures that have defined the franchise with this brand new UT collection.
Fruits Basket is a touching romantic comedy, with a twist. This brand new adaptation of the popular series is a must-watch for fans of the original, the manga and newcomers.
After a family tragedy turns her life upside down, 16-year-old high schooler Tohru Honda takes matters into her own hands and moves out… into a tent! Unfortunately for her, she pitches her new home on private land belonging to the mysterious Soma clan, and it isn’t long before the owners discover her secret. But, as Tohru quickly finds out when the family offers to take her in, the Somas have a secret of their own!
My Hero Academia is one of the biggest shonen series out there, it’s packed with incredible heroes, devilish villains and a world any superhero fan will fall in love with.
From studio BONES, the creators of Fullmetal Alchemist and Soul Eater, comes My Hero Academia, a superhero origin story that soars to the top of the class. Izuku has dreamt of being a hero all his life—a lofty goal for anyone, but especially challenging for a kid with no superpowers. That’s right, in a world where 80% of the population has some kind of superpowered “quirk,” Izuku was unlucky enough to be born completely normal. But that’s not going to stop him from enrolling in one of the world’s most prestigious hero academies. Now, the only thing standing between him and his first class is the academy’s formidable entrance exam—nothing a little private tutoring from the world’s mightiest hero can’t solve.
For the Titan slayers!
Koei Tecmo’s Attack on Titan 2: Final Battle allows your to experience the show’s breathtaking story in a brand new way. Taking place throughout Attack on Titan Season 3’s timeline, Final Battle’s Story mode plays through selected characters’ points of view with major heroes active in Season 3 – now playable for the first time – boosting the total number of playable characters to over 40.
In addition to the content covering seasons 1-3 of the popular anime series, developers will also include original episodes to create a more fulfilling ‘Attack on Titan’ experience.
Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods, Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F’ and Dragon Ball Super: Broly, all in one box! What better gift could a Dragon Ball fan ask for? Catch up with all the latest adventures of Goku and the Z-Warriors with these 3 action-packed films.
Battle of Gods sees Beerus, the God of Destruction, travels to Earth in search of a good fight. Only Goku, humanity’s greatest hero, can ascend to the level of a Super Saiyan God and stop Beerus’s rampage!
Resurrection ‘F’ showcases the return of Frieza one of the most iconic villains of all time. Even the complete obliteration of his physical form can’t stop the galaxy’s most evil overlord.
Broly sees a Saiyan appear before Goku and Vegeta who they have never seen before: Broly. How can a Saiyan – who had all supposedly been annihilated after the erasure of Planet Vegeta – appear on Earth? With the return of Frieza from hell, a fierce battle awaits these three Saiyans who have followed completely different destinies.
