I like Japanese Gashapon machines and I play whenever I feel lucky. Sure, most of the time you can buy the items in the Akihabara, Nakano or Ikebukuro stores, but a randomly gained item gives a certain feeling, seems more… precious, isn’t it?
And when the prizes are good quality pins or phone-straps… and they are also maid-cafe related, like this one, it becomes irresistible. So I have now almost the whole collection!
The machine is quite rare, I only found one, in Akihabara…
