Loot Crate is looking to improve its existing market by teaming up with the popular anime service Crunchyroll. The partnership is looking to strengthen the quality of the company’s Loot Anime subscription box.
In an announcement made by Crunchyroll, subscriptions will include merchandise from the latest and greatest anime offered by the streaming service. Also included is “exclusive access to Crunchyroll content.”
Loot Anime will retain its existing name and price of $25, but will now feature Crunchyroll branding.
The anime subscription box started up in November 2015. Some of the items that have been included already come from shows like Is it Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?, Fairy Tail, and Rokka: Braves of the Six Flowers.
Also announced was Crunchyroll’s partnership with Bioworld Merchandising. This company works with big name companies like Nintendo and Marvel to produce apparel and accessories. The first anime products from this team-up will be coming out later this spring.
According to Loot Crate’s Vice President of Marketing, Jacob Shin, it is “very likely” that Loot Anime subscribers will see products from Crunchyroll’s new partnership with Bioworld.
In other news, don’t forget that last month Loot Crate announced its newest subscription service, Loot Gaming. This new box will feature both physical and downloadable items for gamers.
As Loot Crate gets bigger and bigger, it will be interesting to see how they branch out in the future. You can sign up for Loot Crate here, and use the code SAVE3 to save $3.
