Another month has passed, which means it’s time for us to have another look at our Japan Crate. Of course, last month being October, there could only be one suitable theme – Halloween! As some of you may be aware, we were doing short stories and the vast majority of articles were Halloween-inspired. When we received our Japan Crate for this month, we immediately realised that we were in for a treat, as the box was purple instead of the usual red. We knew what this meant – As we looked over the box and saw the words “HAPPY HALLOWEEN!” on the side, with a cute little ghost image. So, to the delight of Japan Crate only, I received a Trick box.
