Some Anime Items for Your Christmas List

Seems FUNimation got some new merchandise into the US market and someone at their offices made a video showing off some of the new stuff.

  
 
  Capsule Corp. Hat
 Capsule Corp. Hat
The FUNimation blog went on to say that there was a list of new wall scrolls he didn't mention in the video, and I really couldn't find what they were referring. Some of these items look pretty darn tempting. The one's I'm liking are probably the Capsule Corp. Hat and the Soul Eater Book Mark. I just wish they were offering that Capsule Corp. Hat in different colors than white. Maybe more of a baseball cap style, as well.

I do have to add that I'm just astounded that only now are they officially offering a Luffy's Straw Hat. It looks nice, but I'd prefer one made of actual straw. The Alphonse Ski mask looks like something someone would try and commit a robbery with, but I say that about most themed ski masks.
 
Though this video was a bit vague on where you can get all these items shown in this video. Not all these items were available from a single site. I did some hunting for you users and found which site is providing which items and the current price they are offering them for. From the prices I found, Rightstuf seems to have the better deals.

I wish they'd bring back the Naruto slip-ons.  Those were pretty sharp.  The capsule corp hat has is a cool idea, but I don't like the type of hat they used.

Looks good but not sure if I want to be carrying around a Anime Notebook in public.

Bit of a silly video. Seems to me that as the guy has his own office (presumably from the video) that he only knows 'need-to-know' characters as there are a few non-anime fans who work there on the business side. And I think I'd be a nice addition to the crew as I am being educated in business while being an anime fan. But that is beside the point. I like the Claymore Clare towel and pillow but as I'm poor I'll have to wait to get anything for myself after Christmas.

@metalsnakezero: 
If you can wear a shirt or hat proudly then I think you can rock a notebook. lol Besides, it wouldn't be a Death Note.

@sickVisionz: 
I completely agree. I would love a baseball style Capsule Corp. hat, but a darker color. I do know you can buy a Capsule Corp. patch. I guess you could put that on the baseball cap of choice.
 
@metalsnakezero:
be proud of your fandom. Come out of the otaku closet.
 
@sotyfan16:
If you ever go through the list of staff at FUNimation. Almost all have done voice work for the animes. People really pull double duty there.

@FoxxFireArt:
That was one of the perks of working at FUNi that I found out when I was given a tour. Such a possibility certainly enticed my interest of working there even more. Man...I really need to contact my interviewee to see about an internship. The employees pull some odd hours there (about 100 in total) and sometimes schedules conflict when it comes to the voice talent. I count myself lucky in being able to speak to Adam Sheehan and Chris Sabat during my visit.
