Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu Mug Set Review

Posted in Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu, collectibles, review with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on July 16, 2010 by ampzr

Alright well here’s another quick review of the new mug set I got in today.

This set actually came out back in May, but AmiAmi was able to back order it for me. It’s a great set. I was surprised when I opened it today because each mug actually has two pictures. So we get four adorable pictures in all.

The pictures are as I said adorable. The blue mug is Kirishima Shouko centric. While the pink mug is Kinoshita Hideyoshi centric. Hideyoshi’s mug also has his sister on it along with Himeji and Shimada. The mugs are made out of ceramic and only come as a set.

Also just to give you an idea of mug size here are some comparison shots with the Durarara!! mug from yesterday.

And for the hell of it…

One of my dogs, Mattie. She wouldn’t leave me alone while I was trying to take pictures. She even stuck her head in one of the mugs at first.

Review: Heiwajima Shizuo, Orihara Izaya Coffee Mug

I say coffee mug because that’s what it’s shaped like but it’s probably a little smaller than what you may be used to with a coffee mug.

I have little girlie hands so the mug fits pretty comfortably for me. Anyone with a larger hand could have problems trying to hold the mug though.

Other than that it’s beautifully made. Both Shizuo and Izaya look awesome on the mug. The images are crisp and the colors have beautiful contrast. Also I like that the mug is light weight. I hate when you have a heavy mug. Once you put liquid in it it gets even heavier!

Here’s a picture of the box.

This is the only important side. All the others are just light blue. (Also sorry about the pictures. I’m trying to figure out what’s wrong with my camera at the moment.)

I like this mug so much that I accidentally bought two and am having a really hard time parting with the second one. I know I should sell it but a part of me doesn’t want to. I could display them next to each other like in the product photo. Decisions, decisions.
