So, not sure if many of you knows know what Gashapon is, but it's basically a capsule machine game thing. Like, imagine that you're putting in a quarter to get a gumball, but instead of a quarter, it's 2 dollars and instead of a gumball you get a toy. Now, you don't know what toy you'll get, so people like me can waste a lot of money at these things.
To cut the story short, they also have sticker versions where you can get sheets of stickers. The nice thing about the stickers is they're cheaper than normal capsule machines, and they stickers are put in order, so if you want all 4, you can just buy until you get them. I didn't know this at first, so I only got three in tokyo when there were 4 sets and my favorite character was on the 4th.
I was lucky enough to find this machine in Nagoya, so I went to try for the 4th set before work one day. This is what transpired.
To be continued on Wednesday.
