The Ultimate Anime Fukubukuro Collection!

New year’s day is an extremely important day for otaku in Japan - it’s one of the best days in the year to bring home hauls of your favorite anime goods!

In Japan, many shops sell fukubukuro, or Lucky Bags, over the New Year holiday, which often contain goods worth many times their prices. Fortunately for all of otaku-kind, many anime shops in Japan also offer these grab bags full of merchandise!
